Starting a new year

Well I have been in at school a couple of times over the last week. It never changes, well some parts do, staff come and go, new computers come and need to be unboxed and setup. Unboxing and setting them up takes a fair bit of time, considering there are few staff around the school, most have IT problems, whether it be a interactive white board setup, SMS problems or they have been away for a year and there laptop has been setup for a completely different site. Where are the technical staff to help, on technician isn't enough, considering they have eighteen laptops to setup and get out to the new staff before Thursday. 

Students came and went today clasping their results in their hands, fearful they would not get into the subject of their choice. With their N, A, M, E, and the new one of SNA, some students surprised by gaining results in externals, while other have only just managed to reach double figures in Level 2 NCEA. It is a shame that the subjects they will be taking, the teachers will see then go before the year is up, as they leave school having not attained one NCEA certificate. Put in the work, attend school, and if there is homework, there must be a good reason for it. Do it!
