Today was a new milestone in Blake’s life. It was his first day of school visit.
The school that Celine goes to tries to make things easier for the new entrant children beginning there by holding an integration process. This involves the child attending school for a whole day one day a week (usually the Wednesday) in the term leading up to the child’s 5th birthday. Then should the child be ready, they begin school full time.
Celine had her turn of a weekly school visit in the last term of the year leading up to her fifth birthday. Today, Blake started his visits. He was so excited about today that he was already dressed in his school uniform the minute he woke up. Before he’d even had breakfast!
We took Danielle to kindy first so that I could go in to school and make sure that Blake had settled in nicely before I left him. He quickly found some of his friends from kindy who had either already started school or were on their own school visit and started playing with them. I then left happily in the knowledge that Blake was in good hands.
