    Offer to make a large sculpture for the school reception or mini sculptures with your chosen class based on your Australian experience.

    Thanks again for your response! The festival that we are attending had pagan origins, although on further reflection this would not be a valid reason to ask for the leave as the dates of the festival doesnt actually line up with any of the observances that we tend to celebrate.

    As mentioned before, I have now got a meeting with HT on Friday to discuss.

    @numberoneteacher celtic paganism is the route of the majority Christian festivals, we follow observances of equinox, solstice, and Yule tide (Christmas) and it is a religion within the Uk. Please do a quick Google before making comments on other people's lifestyles.

    Hi all, just a quick update for you.
    My leave of absence was APPROVED! - on the basis that I use some of the time to create curriculum links with a school out there.
    So thanks for all you help, just goes to show, if you don't ask you don't get! :)
