Education is a great gift and a privilege. It may seem tough sometimes but education sets you free to do whatever you want to do in life.

It may seem drastic to even think it, but if you don’t work hard when you’re 14, 15, 16 years old, it could have a negative effect on the rest of your life.

Education is the first step towards your dream job, your dream house, it’s the first step towards what could be a really great future for you. Not everyone is academic of course, but school is a great place to learn how to learn which will mean that if you don’t stay on in education then you’re already miles ahead when you start your first job or apprenticeship.
