Help needed Certificate evening for former Year 11 students has always been voluntary in the past. They (the people above) have now decided that it comes under teachers directed hours. We have never had a copy of our guided hours budget and the event goes on untill 9pm. This does not seem right to me. The even starts at 6pm so I believe the time 3.10pm (school closing) until 6.00pm (event start) should also count as it takes nearly an hour to get home so would not be worthwhile. Really do not want to attend this event, any advice welcome.
