Starting school

Post by AussieBritLu » Sat Jan 21, 2017 9:20 pm

Eeek my oldest is starting full time schooling (Kindy-nsw) on the 31st July!! I'm nervous for her because of how she is with people but I'm excited too.
We are still needing to sort out her school dresses as the new sized ones are still massive on her....seeing the seamstress on Monday to sort it out.

Anyone else got a little one starting full time school this year??

DS2 starts prep and DD1 high school!!! DS will be in grade 4. Exciting times. I don't think DP and I will know ourselves....

Schools are not too far apart. Encouraging DD1 to ride/walk to school as much as possible. Traffic around there horrendous if driving.

Good luck!!

It will just make planning with work that little bit easier, knowing that all 3 kids are in school 5 days a week. And if DD1 isn't required at high school, she'll be old enough to stay home by herself here and there too, if she's game :-D

I think high school will be a big learning curve for all of us. DD1 is in a French immersion program, so that should be challenging for her! Everything is done in French (except English :lol: ) - even PE we think! :shock:

Ahhh awesome.

I used to be fluent in French....no longer these days though. I lost most of it when I stopped speaking it....it came in handy when I worked in a London airport though as I understood the French passengers and they didn't know it ;) lol

My baby starts prep (Vic) in a week so after being a SAHM for nearly 11 years, Im feeling very apprehensive about no kids home full time. But shes excited so Im trying to roll with that! The boys are in grades 5 & 2. I remember my eldest starting like it was yesterday!
DS1 2006 - breastfed for 5 years
DS2 2009 - breastfed for 5 years
DD 2011 - breastfed for 4 years 9 months
