Laugh, laugh, I nearly died (The Rolling Stones)
Okay, so funniest thing that happened during my first meeting with my management team (of 6) was when I was asked how I wished to be addressed around the school in front of students.
Erm, Mr Purdy was my response.
Then I was asked how I wished to be addressed by staff in the staff areas - was it Mr Purdy, Head Teacher or Head?
Erm...Warren...was my tentative reply!!
They all laughed and so did I.
Seems they are used to a higher level of formality in the school than I need.
And way higher than I am used to at Kaipara Campus in the mighty Maungaturoto.
I'm sure my colleagues there will get a kick out of that!
