Moderation in national examinations does not come cheaply. In Italian, for example, all the moderators come from the central belt and can be required to travel substantial distances when plying their craft.
Giorgio Pitisci, a modern languages teacher at Bellarmine Secondary in Glasgow, has been asked to moderate a department in Stronsay Junior High, Orkney, certainly a more scenic assignment than some we could mention.
What is notable about this moderatorial visit is that there is only one pupil involved, which seems strange bearing in mind the number of Italian prisoners who saw out the Second World War gazing over Scapa Flow.
Buon viaggio, Giorgio!
