the shoe-deposit borrowing system

May 14, 2018

Sir Year 7: “Can I please borrow a set of headphones?”

Me: “Sure. Please give me a shoe.”

Sir Year 7: “A what?!”

Me: “A shoe.”

Sir Year 7: “You mean, like a SHOE shoe? Like, on my foot kind of shoe?!”

Me, internally: “What other type of SHOE is there?!”
Me, outwardly: “Yep!”

Sir Year 7: “Wow, it’s hardcore here at Pulteney, isn’t it?!”

#hardknocklife😂

And the thing about having brand new shiny Year 7s is that you get SEVERAL kiddies with the same size foot, and the same level of newness/scuffness to their shoes, so when it comes to actually collecting their shoes at the end…well, GOOD LUCK. 😝

Sir Year 7 No. 1: “Nah, that’s mine!”

Sir Year 7 No. 2: “No way! Mine’s newer-looking!”

Sir Year 7 No. 1: “Okay, well…does it smell like your shoe or mine?”

Sir Year 7 No. 2: “I AM NOT SNIFFING MY SHOE! JUST PUT THE THING ON, I DON’T CARE IF IT’S THE WRONG ONE!”

invincible? no, very very human!

May 5, 2018

I pulled out a white hair this morning and discovered that it was going “back to black” (reference totally intended 😁) at the root. 😎

I felt AWESOME! 🙌
I felt INVINCIBLE! 👊

And this feeling of invincibility lasted until approximately Lesson 2, Year 7 Prac. 😂

This made me laugh MUCH MORE than I anticipated! 

this guy is A W E S O M E

This guy. WHAT A CHAMP.

Apart from being a total HERO and making me laugh out loud into my coffee, he made me wonder if I’d have the courage to stand up (or not!) and fully embrace myself if I could not talk or stand. Would I have the grace, and the shit-load of humour and wit, to do what he is doing?

What a serious example of courage.

But he’s also just DAMN FUNNY.

Made my morning. Totally.

raising muso nerds

April 25, 2018

My Year 12 Music kiddies and I are trying to out-meme each other.

Found this in my inbox.

BLUEGRASS + ALTERNATIVE!

when secondary teaching makes you a little too honest…!

I enjoy the post-it note function on Sibelius much more than my Year 12s do.

the cheese war is on

April 23, 2018

I’m about to head into our holiday Concert Band rehearsal + I dropped by Woollies to pick up lollies for my kiddies, and PLASTIC CHEESE STICKS for Sir Year 11 who told me my jokes were cheesy, then left a mini-camembert on my desk.

The Cheese War is ON. 😎

Everyone else gets a lollie, and he gets “Dairylea All-Natural Fridge Sticks”.

THEY DON’T EVEN PROCLAIM TO BE ACTUAL CHEESE IN THE TITLE! 😂
