The night before a trip?
Er I don't. I get excited!
Not at all.
Even when you're in charge?
Why would you be nervous? What sort of trip is it?!
I think I know what you mean, leaving the known behind and embarking on the unknown, it's always easier to do nothing than something. Maybe it's an age thing, I didn't used to feel nervous, just excited, but these days I do get a little unnerved. It doesn't last long though and once I'm doing things rather than just thinking about them it gets exciting instead.
I can imagine being at a different point on the scale though.
It's not the type of trip - it's 120 children!
where are you going?
Ach, school trips, it happens or not, you deal with it, like any day in the classroom.
The Globe. Fab day out but largest trip I have ever run!
well - i presume they're a bit older - i find taking small children out terrifying - i'm always convinced i'm going to lose one
are they likely to be well behaved?
Yes - the majority of them anyway.
ah I see.
Yes, I often have to organise large events (not for children though).
Yes, I am a bit hibbly the night before. Not nervous, just excited. I have it all planned down to the final detail, with contingency plans (and a team to cope with plan c).
That calms me
You'll be fine!!! Enjoy the trip xxx
