In Loving Memory of Murray Jackson: A Visionary Leader and Advocate for Education

The partnership between Gecko on the Move and Edx Education was a serendipitous encounter that changed the landscape of maths education in resource-constrained primary schools in developing countries. It all began when Celi Harper, the founder of Gecko on the Move, crossed paths with Heather Welch from Edx Education, a manufacturer of high-quality maths manipulatives. This partnership solidified the charity, igniting a journey of empowerment through maths education across the globe.

With profound sorrow, in January this year, Gecko on the Move (GOTM) announced the unexpected passing of Murray Jackson, the visionary founder and director of Edx Education. Murray’s unwavering support for GOTM was unparalleled, generously providing essential maths manipulatives for teaching in resource-constrained primary schools. His visionary leadership played a pivotal role in our success, and we owe much of our achievements to his dedication. Murray’s enduring legacy lives on in the countless lives he touched through education.

Edx Education, a leading provider of educational resources, has been making waves not only in classrooms but also in communities worldwide. From its humble beginnings to its current status as a pioneer in mathematics learning and active play resources, Edx’s journey is nothing short of inspirational.

In a recent TV show filmed in Taiwan, viewers were treated to an exclusive glimpse into Edx’s remarkable growth and impactful contributions. Edx Education’s significant contributions to Taiwan’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) landscape were highlighted. Murray and Pony, representing Edx Education, discussed various initiatives, including the establishment of mobile kindergartens to ensure early childhood education reaches every corner of the country. They also touched upon Edx’s involvement in whale conservation efforts, highlighting the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

Furthermore, the clip delved into Edx’s research projects aimed at addressing pressing societal issues and supporting Taiwan’s indigenous communities. Through these endeavours, Edx Education has emerged as a steadfast ally in promoting inclusivity and fostering positive change. Beyond its contributions to Taiwan, Edx’s reach extends far beyond borders. Murray and Pony emphasised Edx’s dedication to providing education for all, irrespective of geographical or socioeconomic barriers. Through partnerships and initiatives, Edx Education is empowering learners worldwide, making quality education accessible to everyone. Unfortunately Murray passed away before the clip was aired, however Edx continues to inspire and empower individuals and communities around the globe

Murray Jackson was an advocate for Education for all and with Edx Education he supported many charities, one of which was close to his heart, Gecko On The Move. As we witness Edx’s evolution and contributions, it becomes evident that the company’s mission transcends boundaries, leaving a lasting legacy of learning and positive change.  Let us remember a remarkable individual who dedicated his life to making quality education accessible to all.
