tiger tiger burning...well, pretty bright, actually
My bro-in-law gave me "Wigfield" on audio, read by the authors. Pretty funny, but tiresome after a while. I can't listen for more than half an hour in one city-- the narrator and characters are just exhaustingly dumb, or maybe just the writers are exhausingly clever.

One city?

And yeah, the joke thins out after a while, but definately had some "out loud" moments.

Yup-- I usually listen on the bus, heh. And you're right, I've received a few stares thanks to some barely-stifled chuckling while listening.

REACHing for a new school in WD3…Reach Learning urges paentrs to find out more about their proposal for a new secondary school in WD3. As the outlook for access to a local secondary school place continues to concern families across the WD3 area, a new glimmer of light may be on the horizon. Reach Learning is a not for profit organisation which is working to establish a new, non-selective secondary school dedicated to the children living in the Rickmansworth, Maple Cross and Mill End areas of Hertfordshire. To have their application for the new school approved by the Department for Education, Reach Learning must, as one of the Government’s minimum criteria, demonstrate parental demand for a new secondary school in the area. As such, they hosted a series of public meetings for paentrs to find out more about the proposed new school and register their interest in seeking a place for their child at what will be ‘The Reach Free School’.Moreover, as Reach Learning is hoping to open the school in September 2012, applications for school places at ‘The Reach Free School’ are likely to fall outside of Hertfordshire’s scheduled school admissions arrangements. This means that for children currently in year 5, ‘The Reach Free School’ could be listed as an extra choice, allowing them to list four schools instead of three. This ‘bonus’ option is likely to be welcomed by paentrs frustrated by the county’s three choice rule when the children of neighbouring local authorities are able to select six schools. The school will operate under the Government’s new ‘free school’ policy, and is to be led by experienced, highly qualified teachers who are passionate about providing young people with a well-rounded education rooted in community spirit and aspiration.Richard Booth, a qualified teacher and one of the founders of Reach Learning lived in Croxley Green throughout his school years and was lucky enough to attend a local secondary school of his choice. “It’s really important for the local community to feel that all of its children will have access to a great education locally. However, in 2011, it is clear that this may just not be possible for children of WD3 due to the shortfall of secondary school places. In 2012, 2013 and following years, this situation is set to worsen. At Reach Learning we believe can fill this gap and offer a school which will serve the families of Rickmansworth, Maple Cross and Mill End from 2012 onwards and deliver them with the high quality education and prospects they all richly deserve”.Richard and his colleagues at Reach Learning are hoping to open the new school in September 2012, The Reach Free School will admit children solely on distance; no other selection criteria will apply. The Reach Learning website displays more detailed information about the Reach vision, ethos and curriculum. The website also provides access to a registration form for paentrs who wish to sign their children up in principle for year 7 places in 2012 and 2013. Alternatively, call Richard, Martyn or Natalie at Reach Learning on 07552 358 200 or email . You can also follow their progress on Facebook by searching for Reach Learning and joining the group page.
