Excellence...


...am a proud Mama this morning...

Well, always a proud Mama but that bit prouder today. Last night was Matilda's school annual awards night. Matilda received an award for excellence in all 6 of the subjects she is studying this year. She has been a straight A/A+ student all year, has worked hard and deserves the recognition. Unfortunately I was the only one who could go to the ceremony last night...it does tend to be a little tedious and go on a bit, last year it didn't end until after 11pm and Myles really needs to be in bed before then. Josh wasn't home so John had to stay home with him.

Would love to scan & post photos of her awards but they include a bit too much information...last names and school.

On the way home she was talking about the Year 11 & 12 student awards...I have no doubt she will be up there in two & three years time. Year 10 next year is the year that really starts to determine the way her education will pan out...she is quite determined to study Medicine at University (and specialise in Paediatrics or Emergency medicine), so has opted for the Maths/Science stream with French as her "fun" subject. Her school offers Uni Maths & Science subjects in year 11 & 12 so she will almost certainly study those.

It's starting to get to the serious end of her schooling...I hope we all cope.

Congratulations Matilda. Smart girl. These days you need to be. Congratulations to you too as I am sure you had something to do with it all, he he. Visiting you from WTBAY on your feature day!

Congratulations on Matilda's hard work and well deserved awards.

My son is year 9 and very reluctant to study or work at all ...argh.

I think her choice of profession is fantastic - I worked as Paediatric nurse for over 10 years.

Congratulations! Great to hear how your daughter is going. And yeah --- Year 12 tends to feel like the whole family is sitting for the HSC. :)

Congratulations to your daughter!!
My son just started Year 10 in September and apart from the fact that I can't possibly be old enough to have a Year 10 child, you're right about the serious work kicking in. No going back now :o)
