OK, so I have some daft questions to ask and don't want to make a fool of myself at Marling parent's evening. The trouble is dh didn't go to school in UK and I went to boarding school, and I am realising that I know nothing about an ordinary secondary school
Can anyone answer these for me?
1. How does the money for lunches work? Do they have cards? Parent pay? Cash?
2. p.e. kit - I am used to primary where they leave it in school all the time, so at secondary, do they bring it in on the days they need it? Do they know which bits of it they need? Is the towel for swimming, or do they shower after all sport? When do they need athletic support? Where do I buy one! Are the white socks normal white sports socks or are they like football socks? Or do I just ask Bateman's?
3. Do they have lockers - or more precisely, do they use their lockers?
4. Do they wear coats in the winter? (most kids I know don't)
I feel totally useless - no idea what I am doing!
