Another proud Mum moment

Just throught I'd share with you, James has been at summer school at his new secondary school, that he starts in September. Its away for the Year 7 to meet each other and get to go around the school and meet some of the teachers.

The days have been structured with Science, Math, English, History, PE, Textiles and Drama, but is a fun way. Anyway today, the parents were invited to attended the last hour were the school talked about what they had done and gave out awards, well James won Best Boy of the whole group, approx. 60 pupils, as well as Best Behaviours in his group, about 20 pupils.

He is so looking forward to starting school, and this has given him a more positive feel for the place, not that he was worried about going anyway.

Me and Jon decided that has his birthday in at Christmas we would get him a present now, so we got him a new bike, to stay at home. We have told him that it was for his hard work with his SATs and throughout the year at his Junior school. So Jon, picked it up today and he is so chuffed. Will upload photos later.

Thanks for stopping by ...

Well done to DS on his awards... that's some achievement given the numbers of kids involved.

What a star you have. I feel his award maybe, just a little, due to how you have brought him up and backed him at school.You must be soooo proud ... and he has good looks too.
My friends daughter had a few problems but was quite shy, however she ended up quite a few GCSE's and now has a College diploma all because her parents pushed for her to go to good school that gave her extra help and encouragement along side the normal timetable. She was introduced to music too and at last count had a Grade 6.
It is hard though when children become independant.

Sorry... forgot to say how much I liked your teachers cards and what a great idea those school autograph books are. xx

My first visit to your blog and I'm sure not my last! You must have been very proud of your son!

Ah, proud moments. To remind you that they do pick up on positive role modelling! I bet he's loving the bike, the whole reward idea makes it so special.
