    How do you evade or avoid staffroom gossip? i tend to have colleagues confide in me about fellow colleagues during my school experience.

    If you dont share about anyone they soon ignore you as being not interesting.and beware of TA's.they can be friends...but they can drop you in it.

    I'm impressed that you have time to get to the staffroom! It's only the TAs who are careless time-keeping who can manage to get to ours.

    I believe that the staffroom should be treated in the same manner as a prey species in a dry season treats an inviting waterhole.
    The water may be inviting but to rush in and drink without care can lead to unfortunate and sometimes fatal encounters with the local predators

    Was at a school yesterday and over lunch in the staffroom I saw three older [probably only 5 yrs old than me if truthful] sat chatting like the old days plus small groups of younger women popping in, eating quickly and rushing out.

    It was an Academy.
