Interim reports

Education Learning Log


My friend Kevin’s wee club celebrated its fifth birthday recently. He often has wee gems of this and that on at it for those who like a bit of American and/or folk.

Bob Dylan has apparently maybe got a new album out soon! Yeeha.

I went to see the vagina monologues at the weekend and found it pretty tiresome. Why is it that cheap laughs and riske words are such a cash cow? Maybe its just me but I found it pretty disturbing to be in an audience hooting with laughter at this, especially when “serious” bits suddenly appeared in a really inappropriate way in the midst of what felt like a pretty sleazy hen party.

On the work front – Standards and Quality reports – for those within the area who would like an exemplar, there is one available on the area glow site as is a match document which Elaine McDade put together showing the links between the Journey to Excellence and HGIOS. I’m continuing to bang on about Journey to Excellence to everyone – use the resources there – spend the time to trawl through it and more time is saved in the long run looking at all of the processes in a school not just the curriculum. Maybe it’s time we had a wee stop the bus moment and drew breath before jumping forward too fast…
