Hi Marko,
The last School Meeting did not discuss your request, as there were too many
Agenda items to consider. It will be considered today. Although we have
discussed the potential of your sort of request in the past, this will be
the first time formally. It is likely that a $value will be put on it,
because it does represent 2 months of solid work for 7 days a week and then
usually 16 hour days, and then it integrates well over 100 years of
collective experience. The School had been operating for about 3.5 years by
the time the document was written, and we had a lot of experience in that
time. I'll get back to you.
Regards, Derek
