Thanks for all your support,I appreciate it very much even if I don't always get round to answering within the week ...(month...)
I have found a new school for Brianna and my eldest is transferring to the same school for his A-levels (because he has finished his exams and he has done exeedingly well...a B in Maths,if you please!And another in English...And an A in Arts!I'm sooo proud!) so not only will she have a new chance she will also have a big brother along she can go to if it all gets too scary,although he isn't right in her part of the building but I guess they will find their way around.I know I'd get lost after five minutes,its huge and has stairs all over the place.
I did have reservations about this school at first,because it is a very big school,that combines several educational lines under one roof,the building itself is sprawling and ugly.The pupils are from all cultures and levels,which makes it very loud and colourful.But they have won me over completely and,I'm happy to say,Brianna and my eldest too. The school is aware of the potential problems of such a big,multicultural institution and they have more teachers than other schools and smaller classes,with two teachers per class. They have permanent school counsellors with office times for advice and counselling for all pupils and also work with the class teachers if problems arise. They have additional work groups on all sorts of themes in the afternoons for free,from taek-won-do and tennis to musical and art lessons down to Lego or computer techs. They have classes for social competence in all levels and offer tutorials for pupils. I'm completely happy and I hope Brianna can be transferred there soon,but it's looking good
Of course,for her it's a huge step and she's not too happy about the fact that she has to leave because people have been nasty to her.But she likes the new school and also the fact that she'll be able to ride her (birthday)bike to school,making her feel independant.She's also looking forward to the afternoon activities and if she takes part in all of those she likes,she'll barely be home to sleep,bless her.
It´s still magic even if you know how it´s done.
