Left home at 5.50am to get to Dundee for the conference. Edinburgh bypass was clogged at 6.30am!! Got to Dundee for 9.00am. My
presentation seemed to go down reasonably well. I had lunch with Heather Reid “BBC’s Heather the Weather”, who was chairing the event; Bernard McLeary, Chief Exec’ Learning and Teaching Scotland ;and Colin Brown, who is heading up the Curriculum for Excellence programme for the Scottish Executive. Also met some “old” chums – John Hall and Andy Wishart from Scottish Borders and Colin Tucker from Earlston High School and Ally Morgan, my former teaching tutor – 63 and looks younger than me!
Couldn’t stay for the afternoon session as I had to be back for the Prestonpans School Board cluster meeting. The evening event went well and these sessions seem to be very worthwhile. One particular point of note – only one person had heard of the A Curriculum for Excellence
