I did not reapply, failed a few times before. These days it is hard to get in due to excess teachers

Hi, need some advice about dealing with direct ROs.

My RO is quite an old, blur and forgetful HOD. Not that I have anything against his age, but he loves to dump a lot of workload on the new or younger officers (newly transferred in or within 5 years of service).

Not that people are unwilling to do the extra (or even sudden) work, but it's very unfair when we are not being recognised for completing these extra workload while he takes credit. In the meantime, the older and experienced teachers usually don't get any new extra workload.

Because of his failing memory sometimes, certain duties are also not rotated. Even after telling and requesting a change, he refuses to budge despite the fact that certain roles have a heavier workload.

After speaking to other KPs from my own school and even from other schools, most responses are just about sucking it up.

I love my school culture and colleagues. But it seems like having a good boss also matters a lot. Any advice?

Be proactive. Ask the seniors for help. Voice out that you need support and then speak to your RO. You need to phrase it in a way whereby you need additional support and in a way where itís difficult for them to say no. Follow up with an email. Instead of doing it alone, get a team to help you. In this way, you can also use it as an opportunity to showcase your leadership.

Hello,

Does anybody know how long it takes for MOE to get back to you after an application's closing date?

We can do online learning or need to, cut into the June / Dec holidays. Just thinking out loud
Cut all ccas first, those are non-essential programs in my opinion.

The issue is everyone is grumbling about it, but don't dare to speak or act on it. My department colleagues are scared that their own performance grades will be threatened.

If you donít dare to speak up for yourself, then I guess you have chosen to live with the situation. Thereís no point complaining if you donít take any action.
