The Sir Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop Learning Centre exemplifies Sir Edward's values. Preferring sport at school, his pathway to learning commenced later in life. Famous for his defence of those not capable of work, his hallmark was not leaving anyone behind. "I have a conviction that it's only when you are put at full stretch that you can realise your full potential."  - Sir Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop
