John Marsden on the Candlebark School and Alice Miller School

John Marsden is the Principal of both Candlebark School and the Alice Miller School in regional Victoria. Having spent much of his career working with kids and in schools, and getting more and more frustrated with the limitations of the school system, John Marsden finally had the opportunity to open his own schools and provide children with a unique learning experience with real-life experiences at the core of their teaching approach. In this interview we talk about how schools have an enormous responsibility to foster strong, creative and resilient children.
