School’s out Friday

I haven’t used a Hamish and Andy clip for quite some time, and it’s a pleasure to share Hitch-Hike Racing with you today. My husband doesn’t share my love of Hamish and Andy, but they always make me smile with their take on life. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the battle that is Hitch-Hike Racing and hang in there for the fourteen minutes until the victor is revealed.

I’ve just returned home from the School Production, where I marvelled once again at the talent pool that exists in the school I teach in. Evenings like this are so confirming; kids connected doing something they love and sharing their enthusiasm with their friends, family and teachers. There are great kids all around us; kids who value the arts and who are prepared to make the commitment to rehearse for weeks on end for performances that last all of three nights. Our future rests in some good hands. 🙂

Have a lovely weekend. I hope blue skies shine above you and you get to soak some rejuvenating rays into your bones. 🙂

School’s out Friday

OK, time for a bit of good old Aussie humour. Hamish and Andy, an Australian comedy duo (remember ‘ghosting‘- featured here before on School’s out Friday) are here to entertain you once again with ‘Stranger Racing.’ If you haven’t already chuckled through the 6 minutes above, then you need to know that Stranger Racing involves attaching a helium balloon to two strangers without them being aware of this, and then seeing who can make it across the road first. My kids and I were laughing our way through this segment last night. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

I promised last week that I’d post about the work we are doing at my school that has occupied so much of my time this year. I’m halfway through the post, and with any luck, will actually manage to complete it this weekend. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I just haven’t had a spare minute to get to it during this week. My energies went into supporting our Ning for our Yr 8 Inquiry Week, and it was worth every minute of the time invested. The sharing that took place in that space made the learning very transparent, and was due reward for the teachers who worked diligently to ensure the students were supported and encouraged.

I hope the sun is shining where you are this weekend. I don’t think the forecast here in Melbourne is looking that flash, but I’ll gladly grab some moments in the sun when and if they present themselves.

Enjoy. : )
