He's doing well

By the way, to those of you interested: The Kid is doing well in his new school. Well and thriving!



We've had no problems with anyone/anything. The teachers are good, the principal understanding and accommodating, the school well-resourced and The Kid happy. He is patient, focussed, respectful and hard-working. The teachers say he is their fastest puzzle-solver.

And I am very, very relieved. After the experience we had with the first school, to now see everything working so well reaffirms my belief that it wasn't just me being some sort of an overbearing, protective parent - that there, genuinely, was a problem with the school.

It does mean that we now make several trips with the car every day - the school is not walkable from where we live - but at least The Kid is doing well, and that means a lot to us all.

He is happy and thriving.


PS. Haha, makes me smile to see that even on these photos it's obvious from which direction the Southwesterly wind is blowing - look at all the trees "bending". Welcome to Southland!

  2. Tore, et teise kooli kasuks otsustasite. Poiss on ju tegelikult väga nutikas ja tubli, imestan alati tema raudteede ehitisi ja mänge.... Nüüd ei pea ta koolistressi taluma.
    Et kas see on lumi teil seal? =O

    1. Ei ole lumi - härmatis on. Siin ükspäe' oli kõva öökülm, vist -7, ja maa peal oli hästi "kopsakas" härmatis, selline... püstiseisvate jääkristallidega, et kõik rohulibled olid justkui kõrgemad, kuna nii palju härmatist oli peal. (Vist ookeaniranniku niiske õhu tõttu?) Seepärast näebki piltide peal välja, nagu lumi oleks.

      Lumi on muidu mägede peale tulnud küll, ca 300 meetri kõrgusele, aga meie siin 10 meetri kõrgusel merepinnast saime ainult vihma ja lörtsi ja rahet. Dunedin'is pisut ida pool tuli lumi ca 50 meetrini alla tormi ajal, aga siis sulas jälle kiiresti ära.

  3. Glad to hear school is going well. We, as parents, are our children's only advocates and shouldn't feel bad about doing our best for them! Stay warm!

  4. Super! Mul on nii hea meel, et kõik lõpuks hästi lahenes. Piltidelt juba paistab, et poiss tunneb end koolis üsna koduselt. Jään huviga järgneviad koolipostitusi ootama :)
