Squirrels


Can you see the squirrel in the garden outside the front door. Opotiki Opossums feel kinship!

Conference going OK. The best workshop so far was by Greg and Richard from Kaiapoi who have some wonderful PD activities to work with staff to keep the process moving along. Another dude, Ken Pierce, who seems slightly crazy in a good way, challenged us to look at bullying (and any traumatic incidents) in a different way. Start by asking victims what have been the good things for them about the incident! Sounds weird but he explained things well and I bought his book.

The conference dinner is on tonight and the final day is tomorrow with my presentation in the last workshop session in the afternoon!

Have met some great people, including a further meeting with Howard Zehr the acknowleged founder of Restorative Justice as an area of study. We presented together a couple of years ago in Auckland. He has used some of my material in his work and wants an updated copy of our Restorative Handbook for staff!!!! The boys from Kaiapoi had to acknowledge me in their presentation because their workbook was heavily based on ours, but quite enhanced so I will steal some ideas back!!!

For those who miss my normal food postings will be glad to know I had a beautiful Malaysian takeaway on the beach last night.

Sounds like some good stuff. We could have just sent you to Kaiapoi for the day! All the best with your presentation. Usual day in the office here.

Pleased to see that you are tasting the local medicine. I can't understand your comment about this "crazy" guy, all RP fanatics are crazy, thank god. Looking forward to catching up with you next week over a few beers

You haven't mentioned any of those churches and museums that you have been to -you obviously need a tour guide to point out the important stuff!
