IT takes a lot to move an old goat like me.
But hearing the some of the stories from the Standard’s best in schools awards was enough even to warm my cockles.
From the administration assistants and dinner ladies right to the head teachers teamwork seems to be a theme that is running right through the Gainsborough schools system.
And it seems there are plenty of county council employees in our schools who are going far above and beyond the call of duty.
Kind and caring was a theme mentioned on more than one occasion on the night.
I kept a low profile having locked horns with more than one of our town’s educators on occasion.
I almost felt bad for all those remarks I’ve made in the past about long and lazy school holidays.
