A week in the Borders

I just can't stay away from schools.

This week, while many of my fellow NQTs are earning a crust stacking shelves in supermarkets or pulling pints in bars, I found myself visiting schools in the Borders.

Hawick High SchoolThe view of Hawick High SChool from my B&B. If only my Probation school were so handy ..!

Putting my PhD to good use, I became involved in a research project which has been running in Primary and Secondary schools across the Scottish Borders council area.

It was really interesting to meet some great youngsters with challenging needs, and chat about their learning experiences. And all without the use of a Borders-Glasgow phrase book.
