The thing is that my week is nothing compared to my mate who has a motorway being planned to be built through his school, he had the media ringing at 7.30am and the phone has rung constantly for 4 days.
A student at my sons school passed away overnight. He was at school one day and gone the next. He had MD and was slowly wasting away, they always knew it was coming one day, but is still a big shock especially to his friends and teachers.
The thing is, that your actions when faced with difficult circumstances really do matter. These are possibly the most important decisions you face.
School isn't always about reading and writing, it's not always about results, it's about laughter, friendship, life, celebrating success.
Our job is about people, little people, big people, mums and dads, nans and pops. It is about community and we are all part of that community.
He aha te mea nui?
What is the most important thing? It is people, it is people, it is people.
