As first days go it couldnít have been more enjoyable. Today and tomorrow have been set aside for new staff, while Thursday and Friday has been allocated for all the staff to intend a series of in-service meetings and workshops. Next Monday is allocated for further meetings and planning time while the girls themselves donít walk through the gates until next Tuesday. Itís the longest period of pre-school preparation Iíve ever known at a school but itís a wonderful way to ease into the routines of a new job. As for the staff themselves, I met some wonderful people today.
