The Need

25 NovA Total Learning Environment

Why build a boarding school when a simple day school would suffice? This is a question we hear a lot, and the simple answer is this: in building LJSS we hope to create a total learning environment. The school will not simply be a place children are obliged to spend some time in each day […]
