I have been out of school for a week and I am slowly getting my head around being away for the next 32 weeks from Muritai School. After 8 years at the helm it feels weird not being there. I been removed from all distribution lists and am receiving no emails at all from school. It has given me a huge realization about how much time, effort and commitment we put into our schools.
This is a great opportunity for me and I have a heavy study workload as I aim to nearly finish my Masters of Administration and Leadership through Massey University. Just one week of being away already has given me some new ideas about how to tackle issues to do with learning and management at school. What I am particularly enjoying is the concept of being a learner again. We never stop learning but there are times I think that it is prudent to concentrate and be disciplined in the learning process. This year is my year.
The school is in good hands and you may like to sign up to Matt's blog as he keeps you in touch with the day to day life of Muritai School.
