You won't be saying that when he picks up a rugby ball and suddenly finds he's a natural talent at the game
He's not showing any natural talent in the sequences on the DVD showing him playing rugby
. However, he's enjoying it so far which is all that counts as far as I'm concerned.
This sounds like a lovely idea, reassuring for you and helping all to feel settled in. As for the rugby, how bizarre! Did they say why?
It is a lovely idea, and the other parents are quite a likeable bunch. I imagine the rugby thing is about making sure everyone feels part of it and gets involved at some level. While it's potentially a traumatic and stressful experience for determined non-sportsmen, I have full confidence in the school making it a positive and enjoyable one. They seem to be good at that sort of thing - very warm and humane.
