    Who Else Is At Work Today?

    I am working on a Bank Holiday because the school has been hired by a company running revision classes over the Easter break [and they might need some IT support]

    Fundamental rule - don't offer IT facilities with Hiring!! We don't even allow the use of the Projector in our Main hall when that is booked - although they are allowed the use of the screen!

    Interesting, looks like a precedent has been set here, full use of IT kit with log ins. We support them, but we don't charge extra for it

    We don't tend to have revision such hirings, Ours is mainly just the main hall, canteen and a couple of classrooms for the local music Service. 6th Form common room occasionally. But we have a dual use agreement as have a sports center on the side so most bookings are with them not us!

    Ours are let out EVERY break from Xmas to Summer. In the past teachers and students ran riot, remotes disappearing, LCD tv panel "keyed", ect. Since then I've micro managed them and to be fair, they have now given us a good course leader. I have no real issues now, but glad this has been raised as its good to know I'm not the only one and would be glad to hear if anyone's negotiated extra funds for support/wear and tear etc.
