We spent three days and two nights in Hanmer going over the business part of planning and expectations for the 2014 school year.
Sue Graham who is now an independent advisor spent a day with us to challenge us about our maths teaching.
As always there was a lot of laughter and a lot of high pressure learning.
Rochelle introduced the new school wide phys.ed. programme Sportstart and had the nerve to make us do some of the activities.
It was a good way for us to get to know each other as we have five new teachers this year who are either full-time or part-time.

|Always time for food and more food.|
|Still smiling at the end of the day. Bless.|
