Revitalized Pork Strips

After returning from Pai I couldn’t imagine only having a week left at Mirror so I decided to extend my program another week. Mirror was extremely accomodating and I was able to pay directly through the foundation which was a fraction of the price. 490 more words

Badley Day Thoughts

‘Another thing that I hope Bedales has grown to mean is the habit of service; of work done, I mean, not only for the pleasure of the doing (though that is a great thing), nor for personal gain, but for the school’s good, to raise rather than lower its standards, and leave it, in any way we may, better than we found it; for those who have had this feeling at school, and worked for it in this spirit, will carry it with them, and find, wherever their lives are laid, many opportunities in service of their fellows’. 450 more words
