|and still they arrive...|
|Written by Elspeth Dugdale|
so now it is the 2nd week of term - and every time I step outside the classrooms in between lessons, another load of trunks, mattresses and water carriers have been dumped outside the staffroom signifying the arrival of a new batch of students... and the class numbers are creeping up accordingly... about 60 each in S3 and S4 and S2 - always the bigger group are at 92 already (why did I set them a piece of written work which will need marking later??). And to my real surprise a bunch of S1s have arrived a week earlier than expected... but a very select 14 so far - and they look so small compared to the others! They had not been warned I would arrive to take a lesson this afternoon - and consequently looked both amazed and alarmed.
However, the dormitories are nearly full already....all the beds are taken, every inch of floor space is covered with trunks, clothes dangling everywhere - and already they are sharing mattresses..... as you can imagine if you have been here. Patrick says they should send word to Lira to stop any more coming down, but difficult to turn away anyone who has already registered - especially when they arrive late at night....ah well, am SO glad not to be deputy head...did I hear someone mention new buildings and new dormitories? - They cannot come soon enough.
