I relieve at two schools - Nuova Lazio High School and Roma Girls' College. The girls at Roma Girls' College are very well behaved, to the point that it is a long day sitting around. Things are a little more exciting at NLHS.

Getting the tail end across was a bit scary at times.
Most of the girls were not very big but, as a 57 strong mass, they seemed to own the footpath and swept other pedestrians aside.
We made it to our first destination (Il Papa) and, once the girls had been given worksheets to complete, we three teachers settled down with a coffee to chat. Easy work.
The only real drama occured as we made the trip from the waterfront to the cable car that was to take us to Chalberno. The science teacher, who was our leader, didn't seem to have a very good knowledge of Roma streets and led our party in a circle that seemed to take us across most of the busiest roads in the area. We finished up virtually where we had started on the waterfront. Still, no girls were lost or run over.
The planetarium was very interesting and I'd advise anyone to visit it. I'm doing the same trip on Monday with some different classes.
Okay, I hear you all saying, "This is all very interesting Richard (of RBB) but we want an update on the music practice!"
Sorry. I will give you more details later.
Suffice to say that I'll be hard at it again today - on this day that feels like a Saturday to a relief teacher who is having the day at home.
