REFLECTIONS ON SCHOOL

There is almost one time that is important - Now! It is the most important time because it is the only time when we have any power.
Leo Tolstoy

 

Each morning when I come into school I reflect on the fact that I have only a limited time left.

My school

 Word on the grapevine says that interviews for the new teaching position will be held 23rd August.

I have had no official word and there is no guarantee that I will even get an interview. It is over 3 months since I found out the jobs for the new school to replace us were being advertised. It is 2 months since I sent in my application.

It is certainly a strange sort of limbo to be in. No matter what happens I should be all right for a year from now financially, but after that I will need some sort of plan. As soon as I know I don't have a position with the new school I will begin some private tutoring. It is years since I have done any tutoring but I quite enjoyed it. My area of interest is spelling and reading difficulties.

 

We are doing a simple experiment at school to test how certain plants fare without soil, water,or light. There is a plant under the box that is living without light.

 

Science experiment.

 Polyanthus seem to be quite hardy flowers. After 5 days it doesn't seem to have made much difference to the experiment as to whether they are the control plant or not. All seem to be faring very well - even the plant under the box.  Maybe I should have chosen something a little more sensitive.


The pile of jumpers for the Cambodian babies with AIDS is growing.

We have about 30 jumpers that the staff have made. The students didn't manage to complete any themselves but they added bits here and there.
