Gilboa-Conesville School welcomes us again…and a party!

Gilboa-Conesville School, NY

We couldn’t wait to get back into Gilboa-Conesvile School again! We loved catching up with the staff and students.

Pre-K…artists at work!

A 2nd Grade student announced that Lynne sounded like she had “stepped right out of a Harry Potter movie” and looked a little disappointed when he found out that she couldn’t do any magic!

Along with High School Algebra, Pre-K painting and meetings with staff, we were also invited to make bowls in the Art Room – part of a community project called ‘Empty Bowls’.

Pre-K Painting - first time they had used paint!

(As it was Royal Wedding Day in the UK – Dunkin Donuts arrived! They made speciality ‘Royal Wedding Donuts’ – interesting!)

Royal Wedding Donuts!


The day ended perfectly with a social evening hosted by Pete and Jane. Lots of laughter and stories!!

Like-minded people…

Losing yourself in a shop that feels like home…

Our own CPD is important to us and this year we are developing our ICT capacity. The Apple Store, Cardiff is our chosen place! Their One-to-One tuition and Personal Projects Workshops are really beneficial. Time passes in a ridiculously quick way as we explore the many creative uses of our Macbooks! 

(And yes, it was Andrew’s BIG birthday and of course I had to make sure we celebrated there!)
