I know I’m going to find this coming week a bit difficult. All my colleagues return to school and so do the students. Although they will no doubt survive without me, a little bit of me hopes you miss me terribly! However, my colleagues are absolutely brilliant and it will be me that will struggle without the laughs, help and friendship they provide.
Good luck to the year 7s starting! I’ve met some of you, and you don’t seem too bad. Enjoy your time at school, respect your teachers and work hard!
And finally to my year 10 boys and media, who will be starting year 11. I have complete confidence that you will do me proud, if you do the work. You are some of the most hilarious, rewarding and brilliant people I’ve had the privilege to work with. Make sure you knuckle down and don’t get yourselves in trouble (yes, Taylor and George, I’m talking to you).
All the best with this next year.
