As we finish up our first term back at a school institution, I find myself reflecting 0n the past 3 months.
It has been good. The boys have been able to compete in many swimming events and WizzKid just missed being the Victor Ladorum(in swimming) by 1 point. He got to compete in a major gala and won 1 Gold, 2 Silvers and a Bronze. CoolDude made it into the Junior Tennis Squad and did his first oral(in front of 25 other kids), and got 85%. (I was so proud of him!)
Both have made new friends and are very happy! BUT........................
My concern is that they do very little work at school! The standard is much lower than home-education. The maths they are doing now, they did 2 years ago!!!!! CoolDude keeps reminding his Class teacher ...... "I did this along time ago Mrs Perks!"(.....oops.)
WizzKid is going to grade 8(High School) next year and we are not sure what to do. He loves his swimming and is so good at it. His goal is the Olympics!!! But we don't want to compromise his education. And of course there's the other issue of leaving this country that is a big influence!...... urgh!
Any suggestions? What has/what is working for you?
I'd love to hear your suggestions and advice.
