Hi, and welcome to my website! My name is Louie Barnett and I am a chemistry teacher at the United World College of South East Asia – East in Singapore. I am also involved in peace education at the school, helping the run the Initiative for Peace (IFP) programme.

I started out my career as a participant on the Teach First Leadership Development Programme. This had given me a lifelong passion for education and fairness. Everyone has the right to a high-quality education no matter the circumstances. Poverty, war, mental health, parent’s wealth. None of these things should prevent you from getting the education you deserve.

This website primarily serves as a place for me to share the following:

  • my life philosophies and principles
  • my learning in the form of blog posts. These will be varied and centred on book reviews, classroom learning and peacebuilding.

I do hope that you enjoy visiting the site, and I welcome feedback in any shape or form!

  1. Good morning, my name is Soraya Alkaff, we have registered the 2 day classes -for Sky School on 6th to 7th June. Unfortunately we are unable to attend. We are running Rohingya Refugee school in Johor Bahru. We have students for secondary level and it will be a great help for me to know more about this program. Below is my contact.


    1. Hi Soraya,

      Thanks for this. I am replying here because I can’t see your contact details. We were not expecting you at the Sky School hackathon. May I ask who you spoke with about this event?

      In any case, thank you for your interest and it is great to connect. I look forward to getting your contact details so I can let you know more about Sky School 🙂
