I had my interim professional development review meeting with the Principal at Leeds Trinity today, Professor Freda Bridge. Each year we work out various objectives for my work as chaplain. Today's meeting, six months into the academic year, was a moment for me to demonstrate the progress that I had made. My first job was to remind myself precisely what my objectives are! I enjoy being goal-oriented, but, to stretch the metaphor, I have a tendency to take my eye off the ball. Hence the usefulness of the review. Fortunately I have made a few advances, or rather we as a Chaplaincy Team have (I work with the Administrator, Mrs Domincia Richmond and the Assistant Chaplain, Sister Anne Hammersley, cp). There was one objective, however, which remained resolutely unmet: to circulate more on campus.
