Welcome to our staffroom! We had a meeting with a view and sound tracked by the ocean.
Here we met our colleagues from the Sabre Trust who are steering and coordinating the LRTT project. They gave us an important insight into some cultural norms and customs (don’t use your left hand for anything). We also spoke about the school visits that we will be starting tomorrow.
Walking out and about in town and seeing the level of poverty has given me some understanding of what to expect. I feel that tomorrow will be confronting as I won’t be able to avoid making comparisons with schools I have taught and learned in. But the teachers who are welcoming me into their classrooms are professionals with a job to do, as am I.
