What a week! I was tired, sure. But it was so good to be back: to see the students, hear their excited stories about summer and their anticipation of the new year. The building is abuzz once again.
Yet as I listened to the news this week I was reminded of the students and teachers in BC, still not back at school due to labour negotiations. Internationally, school is overshadowed by the reality of war and instability in places such as Ukraine and Russia, Syria and Israel.
As the leaves turn colour and the forecasts already containing the word ‘snow’, it can be easy to wonder why we live here! And yet, how lucky we are.
