Online results

Another good development!

"Students are to get their exam results and see their marked paper online via a secure internet site. Exam board Edexcel will pilot the scheme with a small number of A-level students and GCSE maths candidates. All will be able to get results online - the GCSE students will also be able to view their marked paper, with scores for each question."


Will this work?

There is a plan the prevent cheating on Coursework. Only do it at school! Wonder how this will work? From the BBC - link

"GCSE pupils should not take coursework home as part of efforts to stamp out cheating, the exams watchdog for England has advised.

The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority warns that copying from the internet and help from parents is "a threat to the fairness" of GCSEs.

Ensuring more work is done at school rather than at home will also reduce the burden on students, it adds.

The government is expected to comment on the proposals later in the year."

Far flung friends!

With it being so hot in the UK at the moment, Benjamin does not tend to sleep late in the mornings. I was woken up at 6am, which is not great during your holidays. The bonus is that I was able to Skype Brad Cuff in Perth, Austrialia. We chatted about life and the bum had been surfing today, and he had to send me a picture! It great re-establishing contact with him and the family. He has put me into contact with Paul Botha and Phil Smethurst. Wow, those are some characters of the past.

Thing return to normal

The joyful nature of the English has diminished after the elimination of the England soccer team from the World Cup on Saturday evening. We now have to watch, wait and see who will win! Any bets?

Now this is clever thinking...

This is a classic solution to taking kids to a noisy environment (like a soccer match) and letting them have a sleep! Well done ladies!

It is over

Term has come to an end. We have been in Bloxham for 6 months now and loved every minute of it. I am on holiday until the 4 September, so if anyone wants to visit, or have us visit please let us know.

About me

I am an African living in Scotland. A son, a father, an ex-husband, a boyfriend, a teacher and friend trying to piece together the stories that my God, my parents, my ex-wife, my girlfriend, my pupils and my friends are telling me, so that I can tell my own story. Thanks to all for your support and advice. I still love good coffee and popcorn.
