Schools closed - LOL

Recommended Posts

Work this one out.... according to the WBC website, Callands primary is open tomorrow....for staff only????

 

Inset day? Every school has them - basically a day for staff training and admin. My local primary had one before the snow hit and brought in an expert in dyslexia and several other workshop leaders to extend skills for the benefit of the kids. It's better value and less disruption than sending staff out on odd days for training. If they booked someone in advance, they won't get a refund if they cancel.

As for job mobility, our Anglo-Saxon obsession with home ownership, rather than renting, acts against it. As I said - a no brainer. :roll:

 

Ah, the Le Corbusier solution to worker mobility - houses as "machines for living in"!

Well we will be making no progress in the direction of school tomorrow at this rate as thanks to the constant drizzle of rain tonight our untreated road is now turning into one very smooth and shiny glass ice rink :shock:

 

Maybe it will have all melted by the time we wake up tomorrow though... only another 3 inches to go :?

We are currently still above zero, so hopefully the rain and cloud will continue and it will thaw by morning. An awful lot of our snow has melted today. If it drops down to minus 7 again though, then Lymm will be one big skating rink and my family will be staying home no matter what's open. I'd rather they missed a day's school than broke a limb, banged their heads, got wiped out by a skidding driver or fell in the canal..... all of which is terribly easy in conditions like last week's.

How can they be allowed to have an inset day a week after they were supposed to be back in school? It takes the mickey a bit to expect parents to cover a training day when they have been probably incovenienced enough for the past week.

 

Shouldn't be allowed; why don't they do the training on say the first day of the summer holidays?

 

Maybe come in then when the kids are not around then?

 

In fact, why not have them in for a whole week to do all the training they will ever need all in one go when the kids arenlt around? Why? because it wouldn't be convenient for the teachers.... that's why!

Well, anyone else doing training courses for the benefit of the company gets to do it in company time..... but if they have booked people to come in on Monday for workshops and training, then as I said before, they will still have to pay for that, and schools have a very limited budget for training so it's either carry on or waste the money.

...but most company employees don't have 130 odd days a year where they are not at their place of work and so could quite easily forgoe a day or too so that the parents don't suffer

So LP, the inability of millions of workers to get to their places of work due to extreme weather conditions, with the consequent impact on the national economy - is "progress"? :?:roll: Think you'll find, that future trends, for a host of reasons, will mean folk will either be living closer to their work-place or working from home courtesy of IT - but perhaps not in our lifetime, so you can cling to your suburban semi! :wink:

SUFFER? Looking after their own offspring for a day or two - or organising someone else to do so. Suffering? What twaddle!

 

52 weekend, plus 20 days paid leave, plus 8 Bank Holidays makes errrrm, 132 days a year, Baz..... :twisted:

Yes, Obs, it is progress. It is the evening out of choices and freedoms, so that we no longer have a society of idle rich living off drones with no options. We've sort of done away with servants, even in Lymm. Future trends will continue to allow individuals to make choices. Your daft ideas will reduce us all to inbred parochial nitwits who never leave the village and are terrified of incomers. I can see why you'd like that - you'd feel at home! :twisted:

It's apparent that your mind can't stretch from your own limited experience to take in the big picture - must be a gender thing! :wink:

 

I thought you wanted lots of small, local pictures, Obs? And if we're talking about gender things, I don't think YOU want to focus on size..... :twisted:

Thought that had already happened in villages. Have a word with the natives of Great Budworth. They did get invaded by rich townies who more or less destroyed the community.

And isn't Lymm being overrun with housing developments? :shock:

You can't destroy a community by joining it. What destroys a community is nastiness from within. We have our share of pretentious nouveau posh in Lymm, driving round in all terrain vehicles and complaining that the village shop has no truffle oil. We do our best to like them, and mostly, they settle in quite well and turn out to be pretty much like any other ordinary human being. We don't often break out the pitchforks and torches these days.

Empty head seems desperate to score insults - in the absence of knowledge ! :wink:

 

Excuse me for reminding you that you rather over-informed all of us the other day about the fact that yours fits into a bottle neck. On this one occasion, I am prepared to accept that your information is based upon experience and therefore happy to quote you without checking. In fact, I'd greatly prefer to avoid any kind of investigation! :shock:

Come on then, educate us dimwits who can't follow your superior level of thinking. What are some of these 'host' of reasons?

So where does the nastiness come from? The people within who are being invaded by outsiders who want to change things? You must lead a very sheltered life.

By the way, I thought they used pikels in Lymm. :wink:
