All in all I can't believe the year has gone by so quickly.
Just about to take D.S back for his last 2 weeks, he cannot wait to get back as he has his house outing tomorrow, I think for him home life is all rather boring now!
Bet that brings a tear to your eye! Especially if you see all the leaving band members afterwards crying. It's lovely to watch, and yet moving at the same time.CHDad wrote: We still have Parents day and Beating the retreat to look forward to as well.
After viewing various threads On this forum over the past 6 months - you seem so connected, caring and in the know.
Congratulations on a great first year. x
I did find it very difficult to "send" him away to boarding school. However I thought that C.H would be perfect for him (he did as well) and it would appear that we were correct. However I must say that I have really enjoyed keeping as involved as possible in his life at CH. We are lucky as we live close to CH so visiting is easy.
My one big regret is that I did not go to CH as a child myself, I would have absoloutely loved it!

Even more so when you're in it !!!CHDad wrote:I find it moving every time I see the band so beating the retreat is definitely going to leave a lump in the throat.

Theoretically, CH would have been such a life-changing experience that you would be earning too much to be eligible for anything but a full fee-paying place for your son!CHDad wrote:My one big regret is that I did not go to CH as a child myself, I would have absoloutely loved it!
Delighted that it has been such a success for your son.
