School safety, know who is around!

Working in a School or College is exciting, rewarding and provides a different challenge every day. The children and young adults that attend your Educational place of work are vulnerable, bright, intelligent and relying on you and your colleagues to educate them and keep them safe. All Schools and Colleges must have a policy in place regarding Health, Safety and Security so that they can respond quickly to any incident.  Alongside a Safeguarding policy any security plan must compliment and run coherently so that all students are fully protected from threats, abuse and danger. Recording all visitors to your School or College can be a time consuming, arduous and tedious role.  There is however an easy way to keep these details safe and secure apart from manually writing them down into a visitor log book.  There are several different companies that can provide a Visitor Management System such as https://www.ofec.co.uk/web-and-software-development-services/digital-visitors-and-staff-signing-in-book.aspx

From the Queen, to famous footballers, the Prime minister, the Pope, pantomime troupes and science shows everybody has to be recorded and signed in securely.

Two Fun Party games for all ages!

When organising a party try to think of fun games specifically aimed at the age group attending.  From children’s games to more adult entertainment, plan ahead and you will succeed in providing your guests with the right level of fun.  Musical Chairs, can be a suitable form of entertainment for children and adults alike. Played along to music, the participants walk around a wide circle of chairs until the music stops.  As quickly as possible everybody runs to sit on an empty chair, there is always one less chair than players! The one person who remains standing is out, another chair is removed from the circle and the music starts again. This continues until only the operator chair and two people remain, the last one to sit in the final chair wins a prize. It’s advisable to probably use chairs such as Best Buy Office Chairs as the game becomes very competitive as the contestants run and fight for the last chair.

Pass the Parcel is an incredibly popular musical game enjoyed again by children and adults alike.  A small prize is wrapped up with in several layers of paper and passed around the circle of guests while music is playing.  As soon as the music stops the person holding the parcel removes one layer of paper, the music starts back up and the prize continues around until all the paper is removed.  The last person to take off a sheet of paper wins the prize.

Should you Buy a Cat or Dog for Your Home?

There is nothing better than having cuddles and affection from your pet; if you live alone or don’t have kids, then getting a pet for your home is perfect. When deciding on what pet you want, you will need to consider your living situation and your family dynamic; some pets require more care and attention, whilst some may not need constant attention and fuss. If you live in a tiny apartment, but still want a pet, you could always consider a smaller pet to look after.

Firstly, it is important to weigh up the pros and cons of owning each pet to see if it fits with your personality. If you are someone who gets lonely easily, and perhaps works from home, then you may want to consider a dog; dogs are highly sociable and loyal pets, and they will require plenty of attention – dogs are pack animals, so it is in their nature to live in family groups. If you live a busy lifestyle and prefer to be left alone a bit more in the evenings, then a cat will be the best option. Cats are solitary animals, so they do not need constant attention and fuss from their owners, but they will be more than happy to sit and sleep on your lap whilst you watch TV.

It’s important that you think about your living situation before you buy a pet; if you want a dog, but live in a small apartment, then you will probably need to wait until your living situation changes. Cats also like to be able to go out when they please, so if you live in a flat above the ground floor, then you may need to think again. Dog’s can most likely adjust better to small apartments because they get walked, but this will need to be a smaller dog that won’t require too much space. If you live in a big house, then you will easily be able to provide a home for a cat or dog; as long as you have a catflap, your cat will be able to come and go as they please. If your house is small and has limited garden space, then you might want to opt for a small dog.

Dogs are much more complicated pets as they require proper training, effective discipline, and walks; dogs will strive to be the ‘pack leader’, so if you don’t assert your dominance, then you might find yourself to be the lowest in the ‘pack’. Cats are much simpler, they don’t assert their dominance over you, and they tend to be more independent; cats go out on their own, they clean themselves, and they require little care apart from any medication and food etc. Cats need to be litter trained, but in general, they don’t particularly need any training at all. Cats provide a lot of love and affection to their favourite humans, but they are also more than happy to snooze by themselves. Dog’s are known as ‘mans best friend’, so they will regularly be by your side when you need them. If you decide to get a dog, you might want to treat them to a fancy dog collar; there are many online retailers that sell Designer Dog Collars for your pampered pooch – these collars are great quality and will fit comfortably on your dog.
