I am alive!!!

Causing great hilarity amongst colleagues at the moment was the announcement of my demise and the presentation of the 'Gareth Long Memorial Cup' at a School Leaving Celebration last week. Even the Hon. Minister looked round to check that I was sitting near him, as he had thought, as this announcement was made.

Eventually, after a minute or two, the Master of Ceremonies realised his error and corrected his announcement to another Gareth. I was actually due to present some awards as per the programme, but the poor chap got so confused he then called the wrong person up to present those as well! He obviously thought I was not in a fit state to be able to perform this task, either through shock of the announcement, or the concern I may not be actually breathing! As this ceremony was being broadcast live on Cayman television, many many people listened to the announcement! Numerous comments are still being made, with much humour, mainly on the theme of how well I look ..... considering!

I am very pleased to announce that I am, indeed, very much alive and hoping to be doing many more exciting things, with great energy and commitment, for many more years in the world of 21st century education!

As they say, announcements of my demise are greatly exaggerated! :)
