Today sees the start of half term, after an eventful seven weeks.
The school has a new Head teacher, and that with the start of the academic year has brought fresh challenges, transparency, joy, and a real buzz.
No two days have been the same, and I have been pushed to my absolute limit: HR, payroll, event planning, gift making, legal advice, supporting staff new to their roles-just so much. I can feel a cloud hovering and this time I am aware of what that means and after Thursday I have realised how little finance, budget monitoring and review fills my time, so I intend to have some time away, refocus, room decorating planning and be creative, in an effort to go back stronger for the next seven weeks up to Christmas.
No doubt once back I will see myself pushed again, but I must learn to give myself time to do my job and not be distracted.
I’m having a sign made for my door, will post a pic when it’s done!
