Good work, Tony, but who's got the funds you and your fellow PTA officers raised?

Dear Maxsims,

The PTA, as far as I know, has the funds. These won't be enough.

I'm interested in finding out if you have had similar experiences, or worse.

Thanks for your interest.

Dear Tony,

What a text to receive from an education official!   It says much.

Quite apart from the language aspect, it would appear that your money has gone walkabout, as we say Down Under.   I sincerely hope that you won't let the matter rest.

Max

Dear Max,

Walkabout. That's a new one. I thought we were being given the run around, which is probably the same thing.

Yup. I'll be watching this closely.

You didn't mention any similar experiences, if any. :-(

Dear Tony,

I've never had such an experience.    If anyone in this country played fast and loose with money belonging to a PTA, he (or she) would be found swinging from the school flagpole!

Tony,

It's been some time since I queried the fate of your PTA funds.   Any progress?

Hi, Maxsims,

Thanks for the interest. I haven't had the time to follow this up with the PTA. I'll fill you in.

No, the PTA is still around.

I guess the education secretary realized his folly and haste in trying to do away with long-time partners. It does make you wonder if the elections have something to do with it.

As far as the comfort room project, no updates. Again, elections, the number one stimulus for politicians and wannabes to get high, have a way of putting everything on hold in this country. Decent toilets are low on their priority lists. Perhaps they do not realize that this simple project multiplied by the number of schools that have a great need for them, translates to vital votes. That's if they did their math at all.

Max,

Good news! 

I just got word from my son that the comfort room project is in progress. He laments, thought, that the males still have to bear with the dirty "discomfort rooms". I jokingly answered that that was ok.  The girls can't just turn themselves around and do their thing anywhere.  ;)

That may be a project for the near future.
