Well, we are nearly a week in after all!! Our dept has been 'moved' into a new wing of the school. 'Great' I hear you say - new equipment and classrooms, all state of the art etc etc. BUT, the classrooms were not ready until the absolute last minute meaning desks/storage cupboards/shelves have been being delivered all week. We have been totally uprooted, and had to move base as well. New base is MILES from our new rooms (I'm not exaggerating, I have to go through 3 other departments to get to the base!!). We have no storage yet for the new rooms meaning we are trying to work out of cardboard boxes. Trying to find the prelims for higher appeals was just fun fun fun!! PC's in our base are not networked meaning we have no access to dept documents, resources etc. To add insult to injury we still only have 4 rooms and 6 members of staff in the dept meaning (for the 3rd year running) I am peripatetic and having to lug all my stuff back and forth all the time, only making the long journey to our new base all the more arduous. I am sure all the debris we have lying around is a health and safety hazard. Also, when are we expected to sort all this out and unpack? Oh, that's right we've to stay behind after school or come in at the weekend - no chance of getting time off timetable. Add to this the palpable resentment from colleagues because we are so 'lucky' to have the new rooms and I honestly feel like going off with stress and we're only 3 days in!! As usual, none of my problems are actually related to me doing my job or the pupils....someone make the bad man stop!!!!
