Decision Made For Now


On Monday, the Baby Angel was looking very glum and had not come to any firm decision. She wanted to stay but she was worried about being the only girl left in her year. Seriously. I suggested we try it for a term.

So that's what we're going to do. If it's too awful and sad, St Saviour's is aware that we may still come knocking.

On a positive note we heard yesterday that there are 13 girls left in her year level (out of 60). As gut wrenching as that number is, we actually felt encouraged. She had thought it was more like 5.
I still say that it is like the grain of sand in a oyster which forms the centre of the pearl. You just need that critical mass to start things rolling.

The BA's dad is not in agreement and so there is a bit of tension there. He is worried that she will not have a school the following year, to complete her SACE . This is a legitimate concern but we'll cross that bridge if we come to it. At the moment I feel encouraged.

First day back next year could be interesting though.

My gal has only a handful of girls in her class too. It's hard for her socially (it wouldn't be so hard for B.A. because my gal was trying to make her way into a small, tight knit group that had been together since preschool) but as far as academics go, it's wonderful. I hope it turns out to go okay and I hope dad handles the leap of faith okay. When does the trial semester start and end? Very best of luck!
