What better on a cold, wet and windy October day than jumping into the North Sea?  Sorry, what’s that you say?  Oh, not jumping into the North Sea!  Ah, but you don’t know our pupils here at Dunedin.  They insisted that they should jump in and, not only that, they doubly insisted that staff should jump in as well.  Fortunately this blogger drew the long straw and stayed shoreside.  Yes, maybe there was a little bit of envy, a small regret that a wetsuit had not been donned, a missed opportunity to join in the immense fun that was being had in the water but, you know, that’s just the way it goes sometimes, the small sacrifices a blogger must make!  No, please, it’s ok, just a bit of dust in my eye, honest.
