I have always been a keen postcard sender, I make a point of taking pre-printed labels with addresses on wherever I go. Really quite organised for me, but it is a method which I routinely stick to.
In return I often receive cards from colleagues and friends from all over the world. One from Emma, the young, inspirational member of my staff, another from a close friend who teaches geography, both from Australia. Another from Croatia, two from France, I could go on.
It always strikes me that such a simple card – merely a few words and a picture – generate such feeling. I am always happy when I receive a postcard.
Perhaps the simple things in life are the most effective?
Maybe I should try a simple approach during the next term’s work as SENCo – my seventh year in the role.
I will aim to do something simple and positive each day. Watch this space.
