Back to work yesterday after over two weeks off - oh it's painful! Quite apart from the fact I was still feeling poorly, it was our Senior Presentation Evening where our ex Year 13 and ex Year 11 are invited back to collect their A level/GCSE certificates and we also award special prizes. My colleague and I are responsible for the organisation of this and my responsibility lies with putting the right certificates in the right envelopes (oh the stress! 270 students get an envelope each with at least 3 certificates in them ...) and also getting the nominations in for the winners of the prizes.
It's a pretty important evening in the life of the school and a real celebration of our students' achievements. So when I saw that the 365+1 theme for the photo of the day was excitement, how could I resist taking a photo of the silver cups and glass trophies that were waiting on my desk to be taken through to the stage?
