  • The 2019 Victorian State Schools Spectacular ‘Made of Stars' will be staged at Melbourne Arena on Saturday 14 September 2019 1pm and 6.30 pm. 
The annual Victorian State Schools Spectacular program is an invaluable performing arts opportunity for Victoria’s government school students from prep to year 12. ‘Made of Stars' will present a galaxy of out-of-this-world performances by daredevil BMX riders and skaters, acrobats, circus artists, musicians, haka and hip-hop dancers.  The three-hour show will feature the arrival of a spaceship with a visitor from another planet, a crew of sassy blue street urchins, and a tongue-in-cheek look at fashion and fame with a plethora of Anna Wintours and a sea of paparazzi.
While many talented Victorian students will be in the spotlight on-stage, other students will work behind the scenes, gaining unique, on-the-job experience in running a professional show.  We have tickets to give away in our Facebook page Things to See and Do- Melbourne Outer East.

  • A maths activity that Kim uses in her tutoring sessions! It starts with counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication and then all concepts 🔢🔠
•
The card on the floor was addition. Our little learner had just finished this part confidently and went on to take away. Our learner struggles with takeaway so Kim builds up her confidence first by using the strengths in addition and helps her to use the picture to work out the subtraction problem 😉😉
•
Only the correct number fits in the slot. A terrific tool for our primary school kids who struggle in maths. All the little ones love it 😍😍
•
We encourage all our tutors to step away from the table and give their learners the opportunity to move around or do floor work. From years teaching kids we know kids learn best when they can move around and fidget as they learn ⭐️⭐️
•
If you have a child that loves to move and learn connect with tutors who understand and let us help your little one grow their confidence in learning this year ~ www.lizardlearning.com/tutoring 😄

  • 🙋 HELP ME PLZ KIND SOULS 😘

I’m speaking at a ‘Networking Event for Year 12 Students’ of my two local state schools tomorrow morning. Which will be 16-17 year olds from Teddington school, and Hampton High (my old secondary school that achieved a ‘good’ rating from Ofsted for the first time ever – smashing work!).
.
The overall aim of this project is to cover the main post-18 options of: university/employment and future career directions. Covering their questions and giving advice on the process of moving straight into work, or onto university and beyond.

Imagine you had this event at your school when you were younger, or come at it from the perspective of a parent: what would be the most valuable areas for me to cover (beyond explaining my current jobs, and history of education/employment) for kids approaching quite a daunting crossroads in their lives?

I’m a bit stuck, but I know that I made the mistake of rushing into university without going to a single open day. Which led to me dropping out of Loughborough Uni after 8 weeks, and working silly hours at my local leisure centre to pay off my accumulated debts.
.
I also didn’t do enough reading around the courses, or really, truthfully ask myself if the career path I had begun to tread with this decision would be at all fulfilling beyond an attractive starting wage.

I also believed that you absolutely HAD TO go to university if you wanted a well-paid job in the future. Really, I had just bought into the desire for the status of a degree and city job (which I now know would not suit me at all). With increased university fees, and a greater ability to craft your own business and prove your skills online/through apprenticeships, I guess this could be an even more important and complex decision to make nowadays.
.
So! Lots of ideas. But your help would definitely be muchly appreciated and I am thanking you kindly in advance. You lovely people you. Xo

  • The enthusiasm of the newly qualified teacher (NQT).... swipe, versus statistics on endurance.  It’s surprising that the average age of a teacher is just 39, but the most telling statistic is that only 18% of full-time teachers are over 50 years of age.  I’m typical in that I’ve done this job for exactly 13 years - just like the ‘average’ secondary teacher (with a fourteenth spent qualifying). That’s a lot of people not sticking around for too long.  Today - a hot day near the end of term - I don’t want to get too far ahead of this curve.  #stateschools #ukschools #britishsecondaryschool #teaching

  • Summer holidays are coming : 
For some, private schools break up at the end of this week or next. Others we have about 2 weeks. Thats 2 weeks before all hell breaks loose and our homes become the carnage we try to avoid Mon- Fri or to keep to a minimum.  That is why it is essential to follow these tips now and keep everything to the bare minimum. Otherwise your kids will be pulling out everything and anything they feel like even if it has not been played with in years or worn due to boredom.  So do this now, set a morning aside. Its so worth it. 
Doing this now, will save you a headache later. Kids change very quickly as soon as they know they are going into a bigger year, use this as leverage. They are too big for those toys, or too tall for those clothes. 
Tips: 
1. Go through their school clothes and main wardrobe and donate everything you know does not fit them or that they wont wear again next term. Winter skirts/ tights/ blouses/ cardigans/jumpers. Last years summer clothes.
2. Go through all their toys/games and clear what you know they wont play with or even notice has gone. 
3. Go through their shoes and make sure anything that does not fit goes. 
4. Go through the cutlery and Tupperware drawer, this dates too! 
IF you are panicking about what to clear- put it aside in a box and see if they miss it, if they dont, donate it. But you are in control.
By doing all this with your kids you are not only educating them to the benefits of having tidier/ clearer rooms, you are teaching them the value of donating. If you can, do car boot sales- its the perfect way of getting them some pocket money back for their toys. Even if they donate ten and buy 1 new, thats still 10 less YOU predominantly are having to clear up. 
REMEMBER - YOU CONTROL what is in their rooms- NOT THEM. Good luck #diddydollies

  • On a #polychromebrick roll, here's the very cute #northfitzroyprimaryschool, built 1875,L. Designed by the prolific #henrybarstow, chief state architect at the time all the first #stateschools were built, following the decision to provide free, secular, and compulsory eduction for all children. Note the #secular bit. All the schools were in often charming brick #gothicrevival when most other public buildings, except some train stations, we're classically inspired.
