Weekly Photo Challenge: Fray

A submission to this weeks photo challenge – Fray

The frayed edges of the Mouse Bird’s tail; the frayes crown on it’s head; the frayed leaves of the tree in our new garden in which it sits.

Isamilo

T + 4

We have had our first two days of Induction at Isamilo School. The first day involved a relaxed tour of the school which is set in pleasant surroundings. With a role of less than 300 overall the school is smaller than a single year group at my previous school. Both primary and secondary are sited on the same plot and there are classrooms (named after a prominent figure in that field of study) for each subject but usually only one. However, there are two ICT rooms Gates on the Primary Side and Babbage on the Secondary. Both have a reasonable number of computers for the class sizes which I believe number in the region of 15 students.

We followed the tour with a lunch at Isamilo Lodge Hotel. The food was excellent but the service was painfully slow – it felt like almost two hours for food, but it was a good chance to chat with new colleagues and to find out about the place.
The view from the verandah at the hotel is amazing.

Today we have had a health and safety chat and this afternoon we have a trip into town to sort connectivity 🙂
