Thanks, Dan — I've much enjoyed this sequence. Congratulations on Ollie's birth and all best wishes to you all for your life in Australia.

Really enjoyed this post, Euan. In education (my line of work), pastoral "knowledge" is currently very hard to pass on and dies away the moment a brilliant tutor or teacher leaves a school. The same is true of what really makes for a good lesson — a spirit not usually caught in the snare of an official inspection! Blogging about pastoral life, and even classroom life, is problematic precisely for pastoral reasons, but suitably anonymized and at a distance from the event (where necessary), such blogs could make a wonderful contribution to our work in schools.

This is kind of like what I wanted to write in "response" to Lowri Turner's odious nonsense, but far, far better than what I would have written. Thank you.

I first heard the Pavarotti/paparazzi confusion the week following the death of Princess Diana. I ought to blog the anecdote — it's a classic London cabbie (taxi driver) tale!
