This is my last chat for the next 6 weeks. I am off on a long awaited vacation to the South of France followed by some speaking in London. Then it is back to Singapore for a few days of relaxation before heading to Sydney, Australia for a week of leading learning in schools. I will be on and off Twitter for the next 6 weeks and the #whatisschool chat questions and archives will not be posted on my blog.
