I think you’ll be pleased to know that we have been named on a list of great school blogs, as part of the Edublogs blog challenge. It works something like a chain letter: each recipient nominates another ten blogs. Judging will occur “later this year”. The following message came as a comment on one of my posts:
I am pleased to inform you that you have been chosen for an award. Burton’s Scholars presents you with The “Blog Chain – Pass it on” Award. Your blog has been named as one of ten blogs that I am “passing on” for others to follow.

Congratulations. Keep up the good work, your hard work is appreciated.
So many thanks to Mrs. Burton, and congratulations to all of you!
More congratulations, this time for the ‘Names & Faces’ project. Mrs. Grace White, who teaches in the United States, has this reaction:
I have to say WOW! What fine examples of writing authentically, and with a purpose in mind. . . . Please share my compliments with both your students as well as with the support staff involved. Great school community synergy. Lovely work!
And from Tom Thompson, a university professor who teaches teachers:
This is so good on so many levels. Kudos to you and your students!
