Like many other teachers, it is annoying to get different information about the likely release date of the syllabus and new text list.
When I rang the previously named BOS, I was firmly told that there would nothing before the end of Term 1 because there was still lots to done or finalised.
When I spoke to someone else 'in the know' however, they were quite positive that it would be in early February.
We already know that AOS and related texts are out and more textually specific analysis are in but only some seem to know anything more detailed than that.
Since there are already dates being posted for teacher workshops regarding the new syllabus, it seems likely that it will be not that many weeks away. It is not worth getting concerned about information that the vast majority of us have no access to.
The powers that be, whatever new acronym is used, will release the long awaited documents to when they think fit.
I only hope that they provide 'rich' resources for new indigenous and other prescribed texts.
Hope this week is not frenzied.
