Well, the new Christ the King College has been open for the past two days, and I’ve just about survived!
Monday was the last chance to get things done with no staff around (save for a few admin personnel who were very understanding when things temporarily fell over). Tuesday and Wednesday were spent in a whirlwind of last minute tweaks and fixes, along with my having to give a 45 minute presentation to the entire staff on the new network. When it reached 10pm on Tuesday I gave up on the idea of planning the talk, and somehow I managed to fit the whole thing into exactly the time-slot provided (even allowing a few minutes for questions!).
It’s been almost like old times, as I’ve spent pretty much the whole of the week at the College – leaving Luke to run around like a lunatic visiting all the other schools with the usual ‘new term problems’. With a bit of luck things will return to normality (whatever that may be) next week.
The official opening of the College is later in September and is likely to involve some interesting ceremonies (or so I’ve heard).
