First day of the new term proper, with all the pupils arriving. It’s a lovely feeling watching them all come in, and seeing the new Transitus pupils sat in assembly with their brand new (and in some cases over-long, you’ll-grow-into-it) blazers. Plus it’s a fairly short day so an easy start to the school year!
I just spotted that they’d updated the new “quote wall” in the school with last year’s S6’s choice of words. Nice font…
Another work picture as we were back for the first of three days’ in-service before the start of term. It’s actually great going back in after the long break and catching up with colleagues, and gearing up for the pupils returning!
Wow. I needed a collage today. One picture just wouldn’t work. In short:
- Last day of term with prizegiving, seeing pupils I’ve known for six years leave and head into the big, bad world
- Drinkies with colleagues who have surpassed “people I see at work” and are very much friends
- One of the best gigs I’ve been to in ages in the blazing sunshine at a wonderful outdoor venue (review link over on Moshville Times)
Today is a day I will look back on when I’m having a downer and remind myself that life can sometimes be so bloody awesome that it’s hard to believe.
A pupil brought me a cupcake at the end of the day as a “thank you” for this year. And I work in the kind of school where I don’t need a taster to check it for poison. It was yummy!
