’Tis the Seasons

Our winter is just starting in the Northern Hemisphere, but in fact our days are now getting longer, so we can celebrate the holiday season with the certain knowledge that spring is coming.

To help you enjoy the holidays, we made this animation to explain why we have seasons.

At Victory, we’re always trying to look at the big picture and make meaningful connections back to the work we do in education.

Hopefully, you just watched our animation.
