    Lovely and Quiet!

    Its amazing how much more work you get done when absolutely no-one is here to distract you!

    This is my first summer working in a school, and with everyone apart from 2 admin staff + 1 caretaker and myself off for a few weeks I'm spending my time alone getting through my large list of jobs.

    I wish I knew how to relax - I should chill out a bit more!

    Summer hols started over here at the end of June, pupils back start of September.

    Re: Lovely and Quiet!

    Its wonderful this time of year.

    Our school broke up last Friday and with the exception of the office staff and us in ICT there is hardly a soul about.

    Now we can get on with the real work

    It's alright for some!

    We've still got the rest of this week, and one more to survive!

    But I don't work holidays :P

    Re: Lovely and Quiet!

    We broke up just over a week ago... i was really looking forward to a quiet summer doing jobs around the college. That was until i found out the School was rented out for the entire 8 weeks of the holiday so half the jobs i wanna do i cant because it's being used. And the accounts department are keeping me busy, so much for my quiet summer.

    Hide some asbestos tiles in the ceiling and wall cavities where they are working. That'll shut them up.

    Re: Lovely and Quiet!

    It'll be my first summer, looking forward to the time off but not until I've finally had the chance to do the jobs I have been trying to do all year. Never take on a job as an IT Technician AND Teacher Of ICT!

    Re: Lovely and Quiet!

    I dont work the holidays, but I am going to come in as there are a few problems that can only be sorted out without the constant day to day annoyance. I got a switch to 'sort out' a new room to cable and some stuff coming in on delivery (next bl00dy tuesday, why couldn't it have been this week). Apart from that, just waitin till my 2 weeks in Tunisia, have fun all, I wont be posting for a while.

    It would be lovely and quite usually, if we weren’t sat on the other side of a building site!
