First the front of the school, as filmed by the talented Mrs Spragg.
(The voice in the background is our friendly Canadian navigator called Candie (Canadian Driving Information Expert).
I usually walk to school so it is a novelty seeing the school from that angle.
This is Collin's and my classroom. Spacious, well equipped (note the smart board) and a little piece of Australia.
Attached two examples of the display boards.
As we are all aware January 26th is Australia day. I could not let this important day pass without a little cultural exchange at Bishop Lloyd. Can I just say the Tim Tams went down very well. The carton of "Fosters" for morning tea was not so popular.
A group of Canadian teachers could be called a "family" of teachers. The staff at Bishop Lloyd are really a family. They demonstrate a very positive collegiate ethos, are extremely supportive of each other and are amongst the most dedicated professionals I have had the pleasure of working with. I have been very fortunate that I have been welcomed so warmly by everyone at the school.
Just as well I will not be there for Christmas - must cost a fortune to buy all your "relatives" presents!
