First Day Chaos

So here I am at the Induction weekend for this Summer School. I think they want us to think they’re organised…not exactly. We seemed to have a lot of aimless waiting around and quite a lot of pointless wandering round in the rain. I’m a tad worried as the children arrive tomorrow afternoon, and we still haven’t been told what age group/ level we’re teaching, or who our partner teacher is.    …And breathe, Dormouse!

Still, everyone seems very pleasant and friendly, and my fears of being older than everyone else is nowhere near the truth. There are several older, and possibly much wiser than I! I’ve sort of linked up with a group of five others who are in the same boarding house as me, and we all get on well: two from London, a Greek, and two Eastern Europeans (one Hungary, but I don’t know the other) We’re already saving each other seats in the dining hall (which will all change when the kids arrive and we have to eat with them!)

So. Report from the Front: all calm on the surface, at least, but several concerns and worries have yet to be addressed.

    Hello from Rhodes! 🙂
    I’m sure everything will go well, sending you love from the blue Aegean and… your earrings will be awaiting you when you get back! 🙂

    Breathe! Good advice I’d say. It’s great you’ve already made some friends and you’ll be able to help each other out as the time goes by. Let’s hope the glitches get sorted and the kids are fun and interesting. I’ll be thinking of you.
