Have emailed back, why, and doesn't she have lessons? Lol
She seems fine, but wants more dandy and dr who mags
We were not given the option of a day place because of the level of need as assessed by the school.
Sorry Atticus, I had no intention of prying into your specific family circumstances or suggesting that no local children should be supported in a boarding place.CH has always taken local children . In our very specific case , dd has been identified as having a very strong need to go to CH as a border, and has been also given a governor to support her. Problems within families are not geographically governed.
I'm aware that CH has always taken local children; but it has only taken day pupils in the last year. I'm simply interested to know whether this option is now offered to local families who apply for a bursary place - assuming, obviously, that their home circumstances would allow for this. Quite apart from the potential cost saving to the Foundation, there may well be children who could benefit from a CH education but would prefer not to board if they had the choice.
The day pupils pay a full fee ( without the boarding costs), and there is no bursary available,but I'm not sure about scholarships), but there may be others on here with a better understanding than me .
On a different note - just realised that she has been there for over a week and I forgot to send more named trainer socks - I've been so preoccupied with not getting emails.
Found out about the ballet - she isn't trying to get out of netball or any lessons, it's something in-house

I am very curious to see how she's changed. I am equally as curious to see how youngest DD behaves - she has grown up and matured unbelievably over the last couple of weeks - and it's been remarked on by teachers and friends.
Oh - roll on Friday!

It is soon enough for me to be sorting through my daughters things for some warmer PJs and a blanket, so I can get them labelled though...
Had a reassuring chat with the house mistress earlier, so really looking forward to Friday now! (Was slightly worried before, in case my weekend might be filled with tales of woe!)

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia!
I so agree and it's what I kept telling myself when my ds had a few hard first days. I feel so excited about tomorrow I cannot wait! Hope everybody has a lovely weekend and no doubt will we be back on the forum next weekKatharine wrote:Atticus - I'm sure that is because the leave weekend is really close now, so she is thinking more of home. I well remember the Housemaster (not CH) saying to me that there would be something wrong with home life if it wasn't better than school. It helped me then.
I hope that all the children and their families have wonderful weekends
