Career Day postponed

So Career Day with a Debate had to be postponed for one week.

The idea of the event is to have all the students together to let them talk to career professionals, watch a HIV movie then the debate about it and some entertainment acts.

Well the event is dependent on the teachers bringing the students.

Well, the teachers area striking again, this time for 3 days. We picked the date for our event in April, they pick theirs last week.

Anyway,it sucks but not all bad gives us another to tighten up the ship and the event with get the schools (and police for security) full attention, instead of it being split.

And the worst thing that could happen was a student problem cause of lack of teachers or a teacher using our event to gain a newspaper article.

Everyone so far seems to understand, at least it is a very real reason.
