Week 4, Term 4

Expect the best.... no less

Judging by the mouldy Jack-o-Lantern pumpkins in my local supermarket, Halloween is almost here. An autumn festival in the northern hemisphere, it doesn't really relate to our spring, hence, the mouldy pumpkins. I think that I am supposed to wish you all a happy Halloween - but as I don't really know what for, it seems a little senseless!

If you check out the desktop this week it gives you a great overview of what is ahead and what needs to be accomplished. It's a good idea to start plotting backwards and to share the load with your team to ensure that there are no tears and tantrums. We are all busy people with busy jobs and home lives. Everyone needs to do their bit, on time and to the best of their ability. Simple!

Our Art Show is getting close, just remember - QUALITY and mass planting is what we want on show.

The aim of education should be to teach us how to think, rather than what to think. James Beattie

And also.....

  • Thanks for your generosity in covering Lenore's duty
  • Don't get caught with parents at morning assembly - you need to be assisting in settling your students for a great day of learning. Be smart, stand in a place where they can't get at you, or keep walking up and down the line with a warm smile on your face
  • Keep at those reports and use your time wisely. I hope that you get some 'you' time over the long weekend
  • Keep cheerful and enjoy your teaching
