I have just come home from the set of 'Waterloo Road'! (For any non-UK readers, this is a secondary school based TV soap with the usual daft story-lines). I wish I could tell you all the gory details but - for professional reasons - I've got to be a bit careful.
So... here are the edited high-lights.
A member of staff has been making wild e-mail allegations about a piece of blu tac and her handbag.
Many staff are refusing to talk to each other. One member of staff has been hiding most of the day in my classroom.
Some-one actually walked out of school and is talking about refusing to come back.
As a sub-plot another member of staff has completely alienated their area of the faculty through a sequence of highly inappropriate comments.
Music seems to be the only area where any sense of sanity reigns.... Although it has to be said that we DID briefly consider making a few small blu tac figures and placing them outside the office of the offended member of staff. (Common sense has prevailed since then and we're keeping our distance.)
More seriously, a Year 11 class have rebelled and my boss is being 'hauled over the coals'. I'm just waiting for the cameras to start rolling. You really couldn't make this story up!
Two more days to half-term.........!
