    Teachers's Rest

    HORT
    By HORT,
    When I went to school in the 1950s and 1960s, we had Summer Holidays of 5 or six weeks off as they do now. Then in October we had another holiday from school that all kids and parents called "Teacher's Rest". It was 6 weeks after the end of the Summer Holiday and about 6 weeks before the Christmas Holiday Now its called Autumn Half Term. Is this political madness gone mad? Does anyone else remember it being called "Teacher's Rest"?

    Asbestos within St Helens Primary Schools

    Pick
    By Pick,
    i am concerned after learning nearly ALL primary schools within the St Helens area contain Asbestos.  I am fully aware of the dangers surrounding this material and I was alarmed that the council hasn't removed this for protection and safety against the kiddies. i managed to obtain an official list of schools which contain Asbestos along with the details of type, the current state and inspection dates. a number of these schools who also had a nursery unit attached, hadn't had an inspection for over 3 years!!! i am awaiting a list from the NHS detailing children under 10 who have been admitted or treated with breathing difficulties, and more importantly the school they attend. am I over-reacting or is this gravely concerning?

    Would you sponsor your local authority or school.

    By non sibi sed omnibus,
    Reading about St.helens looking for funding and wakefield schools acadamies failing etc And looking for new sponsors for their academies.Would you sponsor any part?As a possibility why shouldnt residents LOAN their council money at a reasonable COMMERCIAL RATEand get interest at a higher rate than the banks give?Many years ago when worked for st.helens.There was the availability for the council to take and give SHORT TERM LOANS to businesses .So surplus funds could be loaned etc.Surely there must be many people with reasonable amounts just sitting in banks.
