Regional Meeting Road Trip
A big trek up to Paengaroa today for the last of our ICTPD regional meetings and so i took the opportunity to detour along the way to catch up with Clare bear at Otewa School. A great little 3 classroom school in a quiet rural valley 10 minutes out or Otorohonga. As with new beginnings it has been tough especially as when she arrived the school office/admin was in her house! But she is really easing into her new role, getting involved in the community and seems to be loving it :-) She has big plans for new computers in the school - if only she could find some money... A lovely new SmartNet server and top class cabling throughout but no computers to hook up to this great new network. Uuuummm think the MOE is missing something out of the equation here.
