Teachers awaited the announcement of "How many?" with baited breath. The leadership team struggled to create fair criteria for their distribution among our 117 teachers.
Then came the letter: four laptops to "distribute". Had we really wasted valuable time even talking about them? We'll draw names from a hat.
In the next round, Estelle, I suggest sending every teacher a personalised letter with gold coloured print saying: "You have already won a prize." At least that way they will know what to expect.
