I have been given an additional seasonal responsibility by the PE Department, namely the counting of all the Active Kids vouchers from Sainsbury’s, which makes a very pleasant change from rush photocopying and laminating. I adhere to a rigorous, fail safe counting system; I staple the single vouchers in sets of ten and then when I have ten sets I put them together with an elastic band so that I am then able to count them in hundreds. The vouchers worth five points (from the rich people) are a little trickier …. so at the moment just I staple them together in sets of twenty which makes another set of a hundred points.
It takes a lot of concentration on my part and I don’t like to be disturbed during the counting process, but with due diligence, by the end of the summer term my work will be repaid by a mahoooosive delivery of balls, sticks and hoopy things as well as some rolling pins and saucepan stuff for the Food Department It’s all very exciting!
