Some rest 'n a semester
A new term starts today. We had the regular "whole school meeting" yesterday followed by a big meal. The school appears to be developing fast - based at 5 sites now (compared to two when I joined 3 years ago) and offering 3 languages (only one when I started). One of those languages will be Mandarin (for Western students) which I hope to take advantage of. My Chinese is pretty rubbish after 8 years here! The" start of term" meeting seems to get bigger every time. I probably know the names of about half of the 80+ staff, but a fast turnover makes it hard to keep up.
