The Divine Miss M is off to a new course today (good luck, Miss M!) and my lovely Son C is home with this head cold that has apparently been plaguing Brisbane. I caught it last week, probably from friends, and he has it this week. We’re a sharing and caring kind of family!! :-)
I’ve been concerned about his high school of choice for next year. Our local public high school is nothing to write home about, and to be truthful, I was very nervous about sending him there due to our previous experiences. We had applied as out-of-catchment students to two other high schools, and I got a “thanks, but no thanks” letter from the first. I was completely shattered, I must say, but I guess that speaks of how highly these schools are rated. Son C is a fairly high-achieving student, and I didn’t foresee any concern getting in, but there’s some competition out there for Brisbane high schools. And private was never an option for this single-parent family.
What about you? Is high school a big decision in your family? I come from a public education background, but there is so much pressure from the community to send our students private.
