This article explains, firstly, what spirituality as a human attribute entails, also from a Biblical perspective. It then goes on to explain that the “spirit of education” is ideally born in the interrelationship between the role-players in the education process, in this case, the teacher and learner, particularly in the confluence of their spirits. This kind of animated (“spirited”) education leads to integrity of personality, creativity and creative problem-solving which, in turn, could be regarded as a prerequisite for coping with life in a globalised and cosmopolitan future.
