Welcome to the last post of the year! We want to acknowledge and celebrate all the teachers, educators, school leadership, administration teams, volunteers and everyone else who puts in the hard yards to ensure their students receive a world-class education. It’s been an absolute pleasure to have your company as we explored all things education, school communication and, of course, everyone’s favourite: the recipe round-up!

From all of us at School Stream, we’d like to wish you a restful and restorative summer holiday. Thank you for a productive and collaborative 2023. We’ll be closed from Friday 22nd December and back to business as usual on Monday 15th January. We look forward to working with you again in 2024.

Without further ado, here are the most popular posts of 2022 – chosen by you. Drum roll, please!
