Today's Gratitude Item: The tutorial class that I held at lunch time went well. We are having a *big* assessment next week at school and I was worried that my classroom would not be big enough to fit all the worried students in need of extra help / reassurance. Happily, only a dedicated few (around 20) turned up and we had a very productive session.
