As soon as recess began, the room was a flurry of teachers, chatting, filling up their plates, and enjoying the spread. Today’s Snack Attack was a hit! As we snacked, we caught up with our fellow colleagues, enjoying the opportunity to chat with people we don’t get to see often. The rule during Snack Attack is “no shop talk,” so once a week, we all get together for a half hour and get to know one another a little bit more. Since it started 6 weeks ago, we have seen an improvement in staff morale.
Frances, the Head of the Junior School, and I hosted Snack Attack today. Next week it’ll be the foreign language teachers. All teams host on a rotation, about once every 8 weeks. We also rotate the day of the week, so that if someone has recess duty, they don’t always miss out. I hope we continue Snack Attack next year, too!
