First Day ~ Grade Two
Pip started back at school today under a new headship. The school had an open day yesterday which I attended and I'm glad that I did. The heart and soul has been ripped out of the place :-( It has been replaced by an obsession with testing and targets, stupid unnecessary reward systems and break time detentions for anyone not wearing full uniform. The school has had an unwarranted repainting and is now decked out in a ghastly red and cream colour scheme that is reminiscent of an institution. If I was looking for a school this place would not be my first choice. The only saving grace is the fact that Pip's teacher is truly lovely and that her best buddy Beth was anxiously waiting for her in the classroom. A sad day!
