News of Old Friends, But Not How I Would Have Hoped.

I found out from my dad in a phone call yesterday that the school in which I started my teaching career (the Alfred Barrow School) is being closed down as it, along with two other local schools, gets subsumed into a large new academy.

My father doesn't live in the area - he stumbled upon the fact when reading about some altogether insalubrious circumstances connected with the new academy in a national newspaper.

Stories like these are catalysts both for humble gratitude for all that God has done in my life thus far and for sober reflection lest I make the mistake of thinking I am immune to such folly as this.
