Ian's Story

Ian's Story

I was an early and avid reader at primary school and regularly visited our local library. I had a thirst for knowledge and it knew no limits and had no discrimination. It all got devoured.  

As time went by I realised that it was not possible to read all I wanted to nor as widely and that more focused study was helped by tutors and people to bounce ideas off. Sixth form; university and college all provided that. When I became a teacher I tried to make learning more interactive and fun and grew to enjoy adult education most of all. 

Today I help lead a course on spirituality and was regularly called on to deliver material in deaneries and parishes. There is no greater compliment than to be told someone is still studying after participating in one of the sessions I can hardly recall. I am a committed lifelong learner and love being with others discovering and debating.
