Hello, my name is Yoël; I have just turned twelve and at the moment my dad and I are learning from home, not home schooling, but home learning. We call it that because I’m not just learning from my dad, my dad is also learning from me. Like an online portfolio and journal, this blog is a way of sharing some of my learning.
Last May, I made a short video to apply for a scholarship to the Green School in Bali and I was offered a part-scholarship. Here is the video if you have not seen it already:
But the story does not stop there… and although it may be difficult financially, my father and I have decided to take a leap of faith and from this January spend a year in Bali to learn and participate in this amazing school. To reduce our environmental impact, and to fulfil a dream of mine, we are attempting not to fly there - instead we are going to take the Trans-Siberian to Beijing, and travel across South East Asia by train and by boat. We have just started to weave the Green Dream and very soon will start to sharing our learning journey here on this site.
