There are some excellent lessons us educators can take from George RR Martin’s epic tale of the fight for the throne of Westeros. Friendship, struggle against adversary, loyalty to name just a few. Here are a selection of quotes that you may find apply to you or your students.
“Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you”
Schools can be very intense environments, your strengths and weaknesses are on display for all to see. Schools should be the best possible environment to develop within. Not all staff or students will be supportive of each other. So we must be. We must accept that which we cannot change and use it to our advantage. How boring would it be if we were all the same?
