Last week of term

Tomorrow starts the last week of school term and a period of real disruption. While I'm looking forward to the holidays the fact that the schools are only open for 7 days in the whole of April will look excessive to people looking in. It has to be pointed out that there are no more holidays than usual but is just the way they have fallen this year. Easter being so late this year doesn't help and who do we blame for that?

I'm off to Portugal for a week in the holidays and I intend to enjoy it. While I may be worried about the continuity in my teaching, I'm afraid that when it comes to holidays I have an uncanny knack of leaving guilt and worry where they belong: well tucked away!
