The article is about education in Gambia. Basically, it’s about the whole school community as a learning community with everyone working collaboratively. The role of the school principal is crucial in facilitating this. I show that not enough attention is paid to educating / updating school principals – whether they be for Early Years, Older Primary or Secondary schools. The article also tries to show that education is constantly changing, constantly challenging. That all teachers need to be open-minded, need to be creative and then evaluate that creativity, need to make the most of all kinds of resources, need to be aware of connections and wider impacts, and need to look critically at education from different viewpoints.
