EDUCATIONAL POINTS TO PONDER
There is a lot of asbestos in the structure of government (and I suspect) private schools. Following a major scare in a northern suburbs school 20 years ago, the Education Dept undertook to review the asbestos registers of all schools, necessary because of errors in the asbestos records of some schools. This was never done and the issue remains. Government reacts to asbestos issues but does not take a leading role in managing the issue.
Happy Australian Primary Principals for your special day of remembrance this coming Friday, August 6. May the day be one where you can reflect on the good things about your schools and the positives of the educational system of which you are leaders. Be proud of all you do.
There are plenty of challenges about education and criticisms come easily. Make this a day to reflect upon the good things and celebrate and rejoice in the roles that you fill.
