At the school centers we do not have specialized staff for cooking, cleaning, maintenance and gardening.
DIs, students and teachers do the practical tasks together. Each morning starts with a short teachers meeting where different issues and tasks are discussed and organized. One student is sick and needs to go to the doctor, the car needs a check up - a student and a teacher can do that, there will be an inspection tomorrow, so we make extra cleaning and preparations for that - etc.
Around once a month we have a building weekend - either at our own school center - or one of the care homes - or we are invited to come to another school center in a bigger building weekend.
The DIs help to clean and cook at the school as well as taking care of their Responsibility Areas on daily or weekly basis. It can be the kitchen, food, the cars, the garden, the workshop, the sports hall, equipment and sports time / tournaments (involving other schools also), it can be music and Tuesday café, Weekend Tours, Weekly Tour to Town, Film evening etc.
