We had to dress warm this morning as it was cold, raining and at one stage there was even sleet as we entered the academy.
We soon got down to work seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Victoria and Athelia got into some good conversations. The Academy was open again after being closed last Monday for a teacher training day that caught us unaware but things were back to full swing today.
As we entered into Satellite there were a few cases of some students who were feeling a little disillusioned with the school and the discipline. Some were quite hard to get through to but through patient listening we begin to earn trust and earn the right to offer advice.
We have one more week before the Winter break and we can sense the anticipation in the Academy.
We are looking forward to the break and to making a new beginning in 2018.
