    Will there be dancing or dinner only?
    Let me know before I decide if I will come or not

  2. Please see updated information regarding the dinner.
    We all know Colin to see of course. With his agreement and help I’ll post a brief pen picture of him soon.

      SO looking forward to hearing Colin – one of our elder statesmen! – a comment I made to Malcolm and to my delight – and relief! – he took it as an unequivocal compliment – thank you for your postings John, esp your third year pupil’s joke – I’m supply teaching at the moment and the kids are keeping me alive with their humour – and cheek!! regards to all Dan

  3. Very much looking forward to listening to Colin Holroyd and to the company , food and fellowship. One doesn’t realise the importance of the colloquium until this point in the calendar when ‘nothing obvious is happening’. As Chairman, however, I can assure you many things are happening and I am recently off a long conversation on the phone with Christine (who I’m sure will happily acknowledge the help of Julie).

    Thought for the Day:

    Q: How many educational psychilogists does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: Depends on whether the lightbulb wants to change!

    (This joke was told to me by a third year boy). “Can I tell you a joke Sir”, he said. I suppose it could have been worse.

  4. Thanks for your contributions Dan. As promised your E-Mail address remains protected. If you (or anyone) would like their photos published alongside their contributions – let me have jpegs . You are premitted to choose flattering pictures whether they resemble you or not.
