Effective communication

Spent most of the day catching up with my overflowing email inbox and shooting off more replies than I remember ever having done in a single day before. Some of these correspondence were quite crucial, so I'm very gratified that the results have been quite rewarding.

The two playwrights whose scripts we wish to use for Drama Night have given us their royalty-free blessings, as long as we keep the integrity of their opuses (at least in spirit) and they wouldn't mind a video recording of the performance, if we would be so kind. Hmm... now where can we find a competent and reliable camera crew to help us out here?

Also, quite unexpectedly, a guest speaker materialized to help out with a presentation I've been tasked to organize for the whole JC1 cohort. Here I was mentally girding myself up to take on the flak all by myself, and suddenly an expert arrives to lend a much needed hand. Yay!

I'm slowly being convinced that people are indeed willing to come forward and contribute to the education of our young. They need a very clear statement of objectives within a well-crafted, succinct missive, but once they know that they are needed and what they are needed for, they'll do it for the sake of Education.
