"Getting to grate" a valueable oppurtunty at Park West School

May 8, 2015

We just received this email from our children's school, in Halifax:

Just a reminder that Friday, May 8th is the last day to complete the Getting to great Surveys.  Voluntary participation in this survey provides valueable information to help us identify strengths and challenges at our school, so we can do our part to enhance the oppurtunties for our students to learn.

I always grumbled that they were more interested in spelling than creativity at this school... but that is some pretty creative spelling!

For 15 years, Conrad lived in Mexico, where he worked as a freelance radio and print journalist. His work took him into a minefield, a gunfight, a dugout canoe and the homes of many fascinating, brave and generous people. He is also an avid teacher and has led classes in radio, robotics, soccer, physics and anthropology in a diversity of places, including office towers, lecture halls, fields and palm thatched huts.
