....and relax....

Categories: Geography General
My blog, like myself, has been pretty much redundant during the holiday months, but as usual, in the run up to the exam results, I start fretting a little. I know some of you may find it hard to believe, but for the last three or four years, I've had to pop in to the school on results day to put my own mind at rest re: your results. So I did the usual today, and have to say overall that I'm absolutely delighted with the outcome. I was really pleased with the Higher results in particular, and especially for the fifth and six year leavers who needed certain grades-I don't think there was anyone in this group who didn't get rewarded for the work you put in. I'm hoping that you are reading this soon, as I won't see many of you again. I just wanted to say well done to all of you, and I sincerely wish you all the best in the future , whatever you do.
The Advanced Higher results, while I had limited involvement, were refreshing too, and the Intermediate results were pretty much as forecast, which I'm very pleased about after what I thought was a relatively tricky paper at Int 2. I am glad that many of the people who have left Geography this year to complete other Highers now have a good grade on their certificate first and foremost, but also the option to come back in s6 knowing you can excel in the subject. Well done to everyone on your achievements.
There are maybe a couple of people who are reading this who perhaps didn't get what they wanted from the exams. All I would say to that is that you're all young enough to make amends on that, whether it be repeating a subject, choosing new ones or going into further education, if you feel that is important for your future plans-It's certainly not the end of the world, so keep the chin up!
I hope this post finds you all well and rested after your break-see plenty of you all too soon next Thursday (It's Tuesday for me:-( ).
Mr O'D
