Within a week she was looking forward to going to school, her self-esteem had improved and she was finding learning easier and more enjoyable. The smaller class size means that it is quieter, there is more one to one educator time and everyone has individualized learning plans and assessment. I also like how there is no BYOD, because at the previous school her spelling had deteriorated since its introduction and she would complain how she missed writing stories. Now her imagination and creativity is encouraged.
The new school site at Halswell is great. She likes how she can ride her scooter, or roller skate at break times, and is looking forward to the new bike track and playground.
