Since I have started telling people that my dd got a place at Habs many people are smirk and say things like "oh you're happy now but you'll soon find out!"
Can someone enlighten me. It doesn't seem to happen to my friends with dds going to St. Albans or St Margarets.
One even told me that her friend's dd couldn't get a uni place here just because she was at Habs.
Today someone sent me the link to a Daily Mail report about Beck's kids not being welcome to Habs as they were not bright enough and asked if I wanted my dd at such stuck up school.
What have I missed?
I assume you and your DD liked the school, did some basic "research" into what the school stands for, what it feels like and what it produces - and are happy with it.
Nothing else matters... just ignore
If you dig deep on the internet there is no "sought after" school on which you will not
find anything "negative" about.
There are also clips on a famous video sharing site which show some concerning footage from very highly regarded schools in this forum.. private as well as state (including ones which people say they cannot find anything negative about).
