Re: 3 weekly grades

Hi Voluptoraptor, The average grades are important as there are academic trophys awarded to a boys and a girls house, but I don't think the children get too get up about it. Dd is competitive with herself, but as long as its mainly 5's with a few 4's she's happy. What she isn't happy with is the 3c ...

Re: Gary Lineker

Dd couldn't understand the fuss everyone was making over 'the man who sells crisps'.


So we explained about him being the most famous English footballer of his day, and current sports presenter. There was a pause, and a 'oh..... that makes sense now' ! Lol

Re: 50 years ago, in the snow.

Hi Pinkhebe, You should be fine to take your ds out tomorrow. We took dd out last night and back this morning. All the main roads to Horsham are clear, and the main town roads are clear.

Hi CHdad, aren't you going to the Christmas Fair this afternoon at school? ;)

Dd calls both home and school 'home', and I'm very pleased that she does ;)

6 page article in today's Telegraph magazine

There is a lavishly illustrated 6 page article in today's Telegraph newspaper magazine. I have only just bought it, and won't get to read it until later, but one thing really leaps out at me. There are only two photos of girls. Looking at the photos, you would think that CH is a boys school !!

Re: Could someone tell me

Washing the uniform would terrify me.

We take it into Sainsburys in Horsham. They have a new dry cleaners ( different from last year who weren't brilliant). The new guys did a fantastic job - not a yoghurt stain in sight and for £4.20 for the skirt and jacket together.

Re: laptops

Windows enabled tablets are like the iPad, but with windows office on them ie PowerPoint, excell and word which they use at school, and are generally cheaper than the iPad. They can also get onto the wifi to access the school network. We want dd to have a laptop so she can watch DVDs - the day room ...
