The flyer which Sprite handed me read:

PLIESE is ‘Attribute Inspired Learning’ recognising an individual’s strengths, interests, wants and needs, and empowers the student to represent their learning through self-directed discovery
It went on to talk about individualized passion based projects which would be presented to a real audience, support from mentors and co-operation between school, home, the student and PLIESE.

It was so in line with the Feetspeak: 2E shoes philosophy of the need for programs which lead to autonomous learning by recognising and building on strengths while supporting needs

I checked out their website and phoned Emma Donaldson straight away. We had a wonderful conversation.

plieseAnd all the while Sprite was tugging at my elbow saying” PLIESE, can I do it? PLIESE!”
