A three word writing challenge from Rachel this week.
There had been a lot of unrest, secret meetings and collaboration when things had finally come to light, and she had a hidden agenda when she arrived as Guest Speaker at her old school.
Walking through the familiar corridors, she remembered the taunts and bullying tactics from her teenage years, the ridicule and hours of detention at the hands of one who should know better, one who had used and abused their position to climb the ladder of success.
As she took the platform, she shuffled her notes and addressed her audience of staff and parents alike. She kept her personal feelings in check throughout and few anticipated the curve ball she delivered directly to The Principal at the end of her speech.
‘For services NOT rendered and for years of dedicated squandering and misappropriation of school funds for personal gain, I have the ultimate pleasure in confirming your removal from office.
You, Ma’am, are a disgrace to your profession. You have no compassion for your students or your fellow staff, and The Board have sufficient evidence to dismiss you without honour or reference. You have twenty four hours to clear your desk.’
