Pupils often don’t realise the time and energy that goes into running a trip. Neither do the parents for that matter. It’s gutting to think of all the times we have returned from a draining 5 days away with somebody else’s kids for the parents to just collect them and go. No thank you. No recognition. No goodbye. Even worse is when the parents are late to pick up and don’t offer a word of apology. I’m not asking for a fanfare here. But politeness goes a long way. Whilst thinking about setting up this Instagram account, one name I considered was “paid for by the kids”. This is accurate but rather simplifies the idea that I am getting a holiday on somebody else’s dime. As teachers we don’t pay for the trips. But we also don’t get paid to go on them. We have to spend a lot of time planning ahead of the trip and if anything goes wrong, that’s on us. Some teachers I’ve spoken to have said they would rather their own child was hurt in an accident than be responsible for another parents’ child being hurt. That might seem a bit extreme, but being responsible for another person is a big deal.
When we realised that the two pupils with nut allergies had not brought their epinephrine autoinjectors (commonly referred to as epipens) to dinner on the first night of our trip, it was frustrating at first. We probably should have been carrying their spares ourselves. But they also have to learn to responsible. Whilst the restaurant would have made every effort to avoid contamination, it was not a risk I wanted us to take. I volunteered to walk them back to the hostel. On the way we talked about their allergies. The boy had experienced 12 separate incidents of allergic reaction and some involved all manner of emergency service being called out. You’d have thought he’d have learnt his lesson by now. But he was used to his mother literally strapping his epipen to him every time he left the house. I explained that we are responsible for them on a school trip but in just 2 years time they will leave home for uni and have to look after themselves. They carried the pens for the rest of the trip and no one went into anaphylactic shock. #teacherlife#teachersontour#schooltrip#firstaid

It was a beautiful day for a trip to the valley for some apple picking and I was lucky enough to accompany Lennon’s class to @nogginscorner. Here Lennon is picking apples the correct way, which we learnt was to take the apples bum and turn it to the sun if it comes off it is ready to be picked if it doesn’t then you leave it and move on to the next. We also learnt that they have 50 different types of apples on the farm! Wow that’s a lot of Nova Scotia goodness. Lennon brought home a bag of apples and mommy brought home some Noggins cider. A win for both of us. 🍎 🥂
