Lifestyle

Many of the skills we acquire assist us at work, at home and in the community and enrich our quality of life.

They provide a challenge to our dexterity, our resilience and our mental acuity.

Culinary courses invite us to seek inspiration from the chefs of the world and draw upon the traditions of the Mediterranean, Central Europe and Asia.

Equestrian pursuits are a part of history and a feature of the modern world.

Games, such as bridge and croquet, pose questions that require resolution. We need other life skills for personal care; they are a feature of who we are.

Our lifestyle is an important contributor to where we are going and how we live.
