Well, I wrote a long reply and it got deleted! So here goes again!
hi Moseley mum and all other parents dropping off children for induction day.my daughter was ok until we sat in car park
30 mins early
the nerves really kicked in then
had to remind her that all of the girls will be feeling same and that when ceremony starts at 2pm she will be skipping on to stage
I am sure your DD was ok by 2pm. How did it go?
Went off smoothly . DS got green bus to FW . Good thing is he has 4 second cousins who go there and he got the bus with them. One of them text her mom when they arrived and to say DS was with his year.
Also had txt off DS a little while ago. Having a great time and has made some friends already.
He will get bus back with his cousins so they'll make sure he's on the right bus, so that takes some of the worry out of it for us!
At least you got a text from someone. My DD didn't bother
Hi m/m,glad it went ok. Which school did you pick then?
DS seemed quite reluctant and withdrawn, which is not like him at all. KES had their admission ceremony last week and he was taken aback by the amount of people that already knew someone. KES organised an extra induction today for boys who were the only ones from their school which was a nice touch. I am hoping he will come back in a different mood.
Very organised though: drop off at the gates and KES boys waiting to take him in.
Am worried about him though ( and I have never worried about him before)
Hi UmSusu. After taking advice from a friend with daughters in both KEHS and CHG, fm and others, decided that all the schools are much of a muchness so went with the closest grammar I.e CHG.
We had already ruled out KEHS after going around again after results, despite it being next door to my sons school and therefore very convenient.
As for the previous CHG v KEVIHS dilemma, I managed to change preference to CHG a week after deadline without a problem. As soon as I changed preference, DD was completely on board and happy. Made me wonder why she was pushing for KEVIHS at all
in any case, everyone is happy and the drop off today was so easy that I feel it was the right choice. As it happens, no one in her year at primary chose KEVIHS so it made everything easier.
Dropped DS off at KE Aston with another boy he knows. They were quickly taken in groups to the hall and he was chatting with some of the other boys, so this was encouraging. He has to get the Green Bus home and like Happy Dad I just hope he gets off at the right stop!
Hope he's home safely by now!
