2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 300 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Problem: The Oxford Academy’s starting time changing from 8:45am to 7:00am.


The teachers would have to plan more lessons to fill the day and this would me coming to school at an earlier time. A downside to coming to school earlier, is that it will mean  that the teachers are more tired and have less time to spend with their own family. Another thing is that teachers will have to do more marking and even more abuse from grouchy teenagers.


The students will have to wake up earlier and this will lead to them being even more moody in the mornings. Students will have to attend more lessons and in some cases, take up more subjects. They will have less time to spend with their families and will have more homework to do at weekends and after school.

Parents of Students

The parents of the students will also have to wake up earlier to make sure that their child is up and ready for school. This could also include giving their child lifts to school but this could be a problem as many parents work and this could cause a problem for their work arrangements.

Local Community

The local community will be woken up by the sound of the traffic outside their houses and this means angry neighbours. The community will also have to make sure that the children are able to get to school safely.


The suppliers will have to provide extra equipment for the extra lessons and extra curricular activities. Some equipment will have to be added because the school may not be suited for the new curriculum. More books will be needed as the students will be doing more work. More food will have to be bought because their will be more breaks.

Cleaners and Other Staff

Cleaners will have to clean up more litter as students will become careless with their rubbish. Other staff, such as security will have to be increased as the students will retaliate to any form of consequence.
