Sad news

I’m sorry for the lack of posts this week.  Usual service will resume shortly.  This blog was intended to be a posting board for little tips and tricks I’ve spotted over the years working at Cramlington Learning Village and to be a professional (not  personal) space.  But given the events of this week, I feel I must mark it in some way.

Cramlington’s head, Derek Wise, died on Wednesday.  Derek had been undergoing treatment for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma for the past few months, and the signs were quite positive that his treatment was working. 

Given the germ-ridden nature of schools, Derek’s doctors had advised him to work from home.  I personally hadn’t seen him since the start of the year, though his presence was always felt throughout the school.  As I’m sure you are aware, it has come as quite a shock to the school.
