Being taught to knock a tune out on something and understand the rudiments of musical notation is a fine gift that will enrich the lives of any children exposed to it. As others have opined, I'd cance

Weird topic to pick. Music is very important.  Do geography teachers have a higher worth? Don't get me started on religious education. 

I'd say it's important that there is a good music service in schools. Not everyone can afford take little Henry or Victoria to private piano lessons.

Looks like the summer break for teachers of 6 months might be curtailed after the cm’s statement today. Plans to get everyone back to work.

Thanks all for paying my pension

I have also been reliably informed that there are a number of teachers throughout the island who requested special leave of absence to go back to the other islands on FULL PAY before the lockdown was put in place and it was granted!!!!!!

Not great for those teachers left on island to cover the schools......

I suppose you can set and mark work remotely as easily from a computer in Liverpool as you can from one in the Isle of Man.

Absolutely, but hardly being in this all together, when teachers left on island have been in schools looking after "essential user" students on rota though?

Bit more to it all than just sending a few powerpoints to students Declan?

Seems like a handy wee jolly away whilst on full pay................
