My new term starts today, though the other foreign teachers aren't due back until next weekend, due to a calendar mix-up last term! We had our usual whole-school meeting yesterday, preceded by a finger buffet! Our teaching building has a lovely little rooftop garden, owned by the residents of the next-door building. But we got special permission to use it for the afternoon, and had sandwiches, cakes and fruit to kick off the meeting. A nice change from the usual "meeting+banquet" format". The main item on the agenda was the school's tenth anniversary celebrations next month. The school have decided to update their logo, which currently shows the union of (Chinese) dragon and plum blossom with the (British) lion and oak branch [see above]. Having won their last competition to create a slogan ("Education for Communication") I'll have a go at this one, too. The winner gets a pair of tickets to a beauty spa, which caught Ava's interest! A teacher/artist combination ...we can't lose!
