Tim Tams, Cherry Ripes & Prospero Teaching


On Saturday 22nd October Prospero Teaching is looking forward to giving away lots of edible goodies to Aussie and Kiwi Teachers and Teaching Assistants at the TNT Travel Show.


Sadly our biggest snack distributor of yore Patrick Kearns won’t be with us this Saturday as he’s back in New Zealand, where he spends a great deal of his time extolling the benefits of teaching in the UK to teachers and support staff from New Zealand and Australia. He has though sent us this snacks missive (think The Sound of Music as you read it)…

“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens …

Eating orange Burger Rings and sucking on Tim Tams

Binging on Onion Soup Dip and loading up on Lamingtons

These are a few of my favourite things

Lashings of Marmite and ingesting Pavlova

Lunching on Cherry Ripes and Cooke Times twice over

These are but a few of my favourite things

Snacking on Bbq Shapes and downing 3 pints of Speights

Crunching on Anzacs and gobbling on Hokey Pokey ice-cream stacks

These are a few of my favourite things

Mince and Cheese Pies on Friday night and Mallow Puffs at all other times

Pineapple Lumps at 4 o’clock and Vegemite with Oxo 

Munching on Milk Bars whilst swimming with Chocolate Fish

Gulping down VB with Prawn skewers …. what a dish!

These are a few of my favourite things

When the head teacher bites, when the workload sings

When I’m feeling sad

I simply remember …..  Prospero Teaching

And then I don’t feel so bad.”

So if you’re missing some home ‘grown’ goodies come and see us at Stand No 30 where we’ll have plenty of these

A VERY sweet taste of home


So who will be at the TNT Travel Show instead of Patrick? Well Aussie Ashleigh, just one of our many Australian ex-teachers here at Prospero Teaching, together with Dani (another Auz ex-teacher), Paige, Kelly (more Aussies) all of whom are Consultants so know what UK schools are looking for from their teachers, and last but by no means least, lovely Liz.


You can see the range of UK teaching jobs we’ve got in our job search and the advice and service our international team can provide to overseas teachers looking for work in UK schools.

Maybe you’re an Australian or Kiwi Teacher who has made the move from home to the UK to live and work here. Do you have any advice you’d like to share with anyone considering this move? Just comment here if you do.
