Tags: my opinions, The Princess
Today I went to The Princess’s school for a morning of talks about the transition from Kindergarten to Year 1. Our eldest will start her formal schooling next September. We had first a child psychologist advising us how to give our dearest a positive but realistic impression of their new school and some simple games we could do with them to help form their kids for writing. There were a couple of ‘aha’ moments for me that made the whole long morning worth the effort of going there with The Star who behaved impeccably well throughout the whole meeting. Then the school counsellors introduced themselves and asked us not to bury our worries but to contact them freely and as often as needed. Lastly the Head of School gave us details about what will take place on the first few days of school and what we need to prepare over the summer holidays to avoid the rush on the first day of school. All in all – 10 out of 10 for our school’s management team.
I’m happy I took my man’s advice and enrolled our 3 princesses here. They will be in safe capable hands in this their other home away from home.
