Then that night my phone started pinging off and I received a load of messages along the lines of 'You should see what they are saying about our school on Facebook!' Arghhhh! That was enough to send me off looking for something stronger than my cup of after dinner tea!
I almost didn't want to look. Facebook commentary strikes the 'fear of God' through every Principal and teacher across the land, across the world probably.
Anyway, I sighed and took a deep breath and opened it up - and there it was. 'What's the public school in the springs like?'
And then... affirmation after affirmation about our creative community-minded school and it's brilliant teachers and child-focused supportive processes.
And right at the bottom, a note - 'someone should show Gwen Sands this'.
They did, Libby - thank you.
