- Leave of Absence to go biking.
I'm a science teacher so I have set holiday dates. I have no complaints about this whatsoever.
Unfortunately the Pass'Portes du Soleil event is not during my holiday time. I can however apply for leave of absence, but I need to write to the school governors requesting leave of absence.
So- any suggestions as to how to make it a good letter? I don't want to appear too ingratiating!Posted 8 years ago
Just in case the humour police swing by, the above was mostly Tongue in cheek. I actually have a lot of respect for sports jackets.
I'd suggest you're up front and honest with them, mention it being the dream of a lifetime and something you need to do whilst still able. Surely there's some science related experiment you can combine with it? Get the education board and governors seeing it as an opportunity rather than a problem of how to fill your vacancy?
If it's around the same time as school budget review the head might be grateful of a way to temporarily reduce the salary cost?Posted 8 years agobrukSubscriber
Have a good idea and proof of level of money raised, possibly some way of linking your experience into your teaching and emphasise the hardness of the 'expedition'
Don't say, it'll be great fun and I'm only raising money as an excuse so I can skive off school.
Or just spend few weeks before complaining of stress and then take a sickie to last past when your broken body will be recovered enough to go back.
My sis once got my dad to ring up her work and claim she was off with flu whilst she was away skiing! How she explained the suntan and broken arm 1 week later I've never discovered!Posted 8 years agovalleydaddySubscriber
can you get a student teacher to cover you??????
or play with the gas taps again and get the lab shut down 😉
As they say if you don't ask you don't get so give it a go, at worst they can say no.
and for the record Ambrose would have been an awesome teacher to have so leave off about sports jacket, it has reflective strips on it for biking duties lolPosted 8 years ago
