April; finally getting up to date!

8 May, 2017 | 0 COMMENTS

OK! So I'm finally getting to where I need to be this year with blogs and updates. Again, sorry for the lack of news from this end! I'm grateful that God has got me through this year of school, and all of the pressures and stresses, but also praying that next year is a little bit more manageable! I have found out that I will need to do a little bit of teaching next year, but it won't be more than 3-4 classes per week so I should be able to get down to what I'd rather be doing! Towards the start...

March This month has been a little less busy in terms of Bingham work, though I am feeling the pressure a little of less and less time to prepare my GCSE and A-level students for their exams as they finish at the end of April. However, I don't have too much of the course still to cover, so hopefully all should be OK. At the beginning of the month, we had the Bingham High School Banquet. This is another annual event, often organised by the parents of the high school students, as a sort of Bingh...

So no such joy as yet. Anyway, I...

I've been so busy with many different things that have happened, and have been chasing my tail trying to catch up with it all. I'll post a couple of posts, to try and cover everything that has gone on here! January... Back in January, over the New Year, a number of us at Bingham went for a trip to one of Ethiopia's most incredible landscapes, the Danakil Depression. This is an area of Ethiopia abou...

Happy Merry Christmas! I'm currently on a much needed 3-week holiday from school, which is really nice. The last few months have been busy as always so I'll try and fill in on the recent happenings! In the beginning of November, we had Guy Fawkes night. This is definitely not something that I'm familiar with as we don't seem to celebrate it at all in Northern Ireland. However, it's very big in England and Wales, so we had a celebration together. One of the history teachers is from England so sh...
