Day 289 - the extinct long weekend
As a government school we used to be able to take the day off before Cup Day as long as we could demonstrate we had completed 8 hours PD. Last year we were granted a long over due pay rise but we had to lose some of our student free days as punishment. So here we are at school today - more teachers than students. I've just finished my bus duty waving off about 12 students in 5 huge buses that are still obliged to do their runs.
At least we had a pleasant luncheon (that we provided ourselves) and some fun and games so our spirits have been boosted....I think.
