Yeah, they're not supposed to officially start until next week. This week it's all prep and getting the students acclimated to their new classes and homeroom teachers, and making sure schedules and materials are ready to go.

That I didn't know :p
Last year, I think our first day back was a Friday or something, and from the Monday after, it was go from the start. So was more expecting it to be go from the start this year.
So basically it's another week of deskwarming :'( I'd like to start prepping the grade 2 lessons, as the textbook is changing, but we don't have the new textbooks yet. :(

Sorry, I'm only now catching this.

This is only official for my own school, not really too sure about how official it is at other schools, but it's one of those flexible things that can go any which way according to the needs of the school and the teachers.

My school is also semi-private, but it's special even for a semi-private and is closer to being a private school than it is a public school. It has a lot of funding from both the government and the community, but it retains full autonomy and operates completely on its own rules and schedule.

Dat face when you're hungover as hell but you've been doing this so long that your 'straight out of uni' co-teacher says, "Kevin Teacher, you're so energetic."

Actually it's an ad to stimulate women to have +3 kids to get life-long income tax exemption.

Most women with 3+ kids donít make much money afterwards, so itís not much of a break.

Knowing Orban... probably not haha! ;D

Quote
Orban, the leader of the ruling right-wing Fidesz party, has been using tax breaks, housing subsidies and other incentives to encourage families to have more children.

He said instead that governments need to great incentives for its existing citizens to have more children, warning that 'the survival of our civilization and our culture is at stake.'

Kinda glad I never paid for a subscription here once they started that nonsense. Can you imagine paying for a site that has a 503 server error every other other time* you try to access it?

When you start a new job, you meet many people the first couple weeks.

Donít expect business cards for at least three weeks.

I'm pretty sure if the Ajummas who clean the school were to supply all the restrooms with toilet paper, it would be 10x more useful than whatever else they do  :undecided:

Oh, you think having toilet paper is more useful than making sure every inch of the bathroom is dripping wet?

Ha.

Ha ha.

You poor fool.
