Just got back from a weekend in Busselton / Dunsborough I have always loved the North west for its rugged beauty and constant weather and always imagined retiring there to take advantage of the never ending summer and the social life. My eyes have been opened to the appeal of... Continue reading

After composing yesterday's post I started to think about my school days and realised that they were full of little snippets that would turn a modern educator's hair white. Days before duty of care , ADHD, individual learning packages , political correctedness and indeed any degree of sensitivity or caring.... Continue reading
