... today (except for some that Nicky bought to take back for the dogs in the school) and had just papaya salad and white noodles. It was even spicier than yesterday.

The first worksheet required the children to match the worker with the description of his role. Most coped quite well ...

... recognise the persistent troublemakers in each class which helps a little, but often they are the class comedians and sometimes very bright as well and so it is hard to deal with them too heavy-handedly. It was Josh’s first visit to the school and a wit in the first class of the morning gave him the nickname of Harry Potter.
