    Anzac Day

    Anzac Day was yesterday, a national day of reflection for the Australian and New Zealand troops killed in action over the years. The veterans march to dawn services, but so do schools and scout groups etc. Seeing young kids with their Grandparents or maybe even parents medals pinned to their...
  2. Election 2010: Education

    So the next area for discussion is Education. Exam results have improved significantly since Labour have come to power but is that down to the investment they have put in or because of grade inflation? The Conservatives are talking about bring private schools into the public sector; good or...

    On Strike

    Surprised some of our resident "right wingers" haven't picked up on this.... I am on strike tomorrow and Tuesday. I am on stike to protect my redundancy payment, which for me means HM Government want to steal £25000 of my accrued rights. More importantly, they want to make a shed load of us...

    The Day the Immigrants Left

    Evan Davis investigates the impact of immigration on the employment market in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, by challenging local people to take over a number of the jobs normally done by foreign workers. Moving beyond the workplace, he also explores how the town's public services, such as schools and...

    Backlash against the Bankers

    I know we may have one or two on here, but just wondered what, if any campaigns people have signed up to... Firstly we have Billy Bragg's NoBonus4RBS - "If you pay tax in the UK, you are a major shareholder in several banks - Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Lloyds and Northern Rock - who were...

    Blair: Gaza's great betrayer

    It's more than a year since Israel launched its immoral attack on Gaza and Palestinians are still living on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. So what has Tony Blair done to further peace in the region? Virtually nothing, argues the historian Avi Shlaim Comments (98) Buzz up! Digg it Avi...

    Adrian Clarke - SMS

    I was not aware that Adrian set up the SMS service!! Good luck to the fellow: http://soccerlens.com/interview-with-former-arsenal-and-southend-player-adrian-clarke/3768/ Although, this interview seems to disapper 5 seconds after loading so I will copy and paste for those interested.

  8. Ref Watch ...... Hartlepool

    The man in charge of Saturday's rather important fixture is Phil Gibbs from Birmingham. He is employed as Assistant Headteacher at a boys' secondary school in Kings Heath. In his second year as a League referee, he has never refereed Southend before and Hartlepool only once (they lost away)...

    Teaching Assistant cuts

    Absolute joke - without TAs in the classrooms these days schools would fall apart. I spent the whole of Thursday dealing with behavioural issues which no teacher would have had time to deal with. They can't have it both ways, they either want inclusivity or they don't - and if they want cut...
  10. The I Phone and Technology

    I like to think of myself as a young pup at 23. Even since the 90s there has been a massive development in technology from the Sega Saturn and Mega Drive to X Box and Playstation and Wii. Brick like mobile phones with children lucky to have one and perhaps parents well off to almost all...

    Breaking News Guess what I heard today....

    Went to the '2 Smart 4...' road show today up the Cliffs with my school amongst other 'lively' schools in the Southend area (Shoeburyness, SHSB, Futures etc), and Mr Tilson made an appearance on the stage. During a question and answer session, one student from my school asked him 'Is there...

    Don't Panic, Arsene

    As dawn broke on the morning after the worst night of his career, I wonder what Arsene Wenger was doing. For some reason, I imagine him stood at the back door of his house, watching the sun rise slowly over his dew-drenched garden, sipping coffee and shaking his head pensively, wondering what...

    Southend United v Everton

    Sorry about the late match report but I've been a bit busy these last 78 years: SOUTHEND SUPPORTERS CLUB In connection to the benefit of Jack French and Billy Moore a collection at the ground on Saturday realized over £13. Collecting cards and tickets for the Everton match are now available...
  16. Chairman's Blog - 24th March

    Chairman's Blog As promised the Club’s media department has sifted through all the emails received to date and amalgamated these into the most frequently asked questions including some unusual ones. I am told that some of the emails have been paraphrased but I am sure they include the gist. I...

    Soccer AM is ****

    This used to be so fecking good, but it seems to have completely died on its arse. They drag out the same old guests, bore us to tears with the same old Skill Schools and to be fair there is only so many skills you can do with a ball before it gets boring. The Soccerets have gone right down...
  18. Alfie Patten, father at 13

    If you don't know the story, go here: When I was 12, I was more interested in my ZX Spectrum, and kicking around a football rather than trying to get my end away with girls. Absolute shame that kids seem to go from kids to young adults without the fun bit in the middle. I think kids get...

    Calling all you teachers out there....

    Apart from TES and County's Jobs in Schools, what are the other decent websites out there for job vacancies?
