Catching Up

It was good to catch up with some old pals, Peter Clifton the principal of Magpie PS and Karolina Kuzmich the principal from Little Bendigo PS. We had a long lunch at the Golden City Hotel and a bit of a catch up. ( I think we only 'talked shop' about 50% of the time which is good for 3 principals.

I'm currently working on a unit for The Last of the Mohicans for later in the term. I'll also read Lynn Reid Banks 'The Indian in the Cupboard'.
It has been years since I read that. I made up a unit for it but it was a cut and paste job and I also remember some controversy about her portrayal of native Americans. It didn't stop her writing a few sequels but I don't think I'll update the unit, instead I'll use what I've got and work on a new short unit for Fenimore Cooper's classic. ( It is not without its detractors as well)
