Last PGCE Seminar Ever

By | PGCE, SD - ICT, Seminars | No Comments

This seminar we have been asked to think up a few different ideas on what is the best starter plenary and general lesson.

Its all over and it has been great to get to know the other people on the pgce and to share ideas.

I wonder if we wil keep in touch but i reckon we will always be able to call up each other and ask for ideas.

Cheers guys.

After what has been a challenging yet rewarding PGCE Year I am back with my photography. Its so good to have it done and be able to get a bit of my life back. I did really well and had some good results.

I do hope you enjoy this one from Kenya taken at the Nanyuki Golf Club.

Is it too dark?
