Recently I wrote about how school and my son have entered a lovely phase. Fortunately, it continues. Bless his teacher. I think she’s got a lot to do with it. Of course, he has as well.
We recently had the parent/teacher interview and it included JJ this time. She pretty much told me what she’d already told me at our first chat three weeks into the school term.
She did note that his work has improved out of site. That includes his written work and his maths.
I mentioned how he had his heart set on going to a particular high school and she said something that completely blew my mind.
She suggested another one that’s more focused on academic work. She even suggested another school that has an Ignite program for accelerated learning.
It blew my mind because I think I’ve gone on record saying that my son is not academic, but it turns out he is on that track.
Apparently he’s a joy to teach because he’s very inquisitive, and all the senior school teachers enjoy teaching him.
Could my heart swell any bigger at this time? Probably not.
He’s got a year or so until he has to start applying to high schools and sitting tests and so on, so my tactic will be to apply for everything and see what comes out in the wash.
The world is his oyster. Hope this continues.
Oh, and the photo above? That’s him being a koala. He couldn’t get up the tree so he dragged a big log over to act as a stool so he could climb up it.
