Last week in assembly I spoke to the pupils about how precious education is. I mentioned in the process the girls from Chipok in Nigeria who were kidnapped by Boko Haram more than a year ago and the story of Malala Yousafzai. There are many stories, even in recent years, of attempts to deny children an education. I can only assume it is because education represents power.
I awoke with great anticipation on Sunday morning. I was out of bed and had the coffee made in plenty of time. Just after 8.30am I sat down to watch Andy Murray in the Australian Open final. He had had a very promising two weeks and looked back to his form of a year or two ago.
