I am poor.....We got a bursary,but it was up to us whether we paid the rest. There are probably more upper class children in my sons school than middle/working class...All i can say is God help them,because my baby is smart......
I wouldn't start comparing other children unfavourably with your child before he has even started at the school. You might be in for a surprise. It is amazing how clever some rich kids are - mine for example has an IQ of 174.
Before war breaks out here, could I say to the most recent "Guest" that a number of us have seen Juliette's struggles on a bursary, and she is entitled to be proud of what her son has achieved. It is very difficult to fight for "financial assistance" of any sort, and even more so when you are fighting for your child, as it can feel like an admission of failure on the part of the parents. She is proud of her son's achievements, and also proud of the fact that she can manage to pay the reduced fees for the new school.
I am sure that she has no intention of belittling other people's children in the process.
Recent Guest, I am sure that your son will do well on his IQ of 174. I hope that Juliette's son does just as well.
See you both in Rehab, maybe?
