Nadine is the latest casualty of the local education system. She has withdrawn from the College after it became apparent that her relentless 'maths and science' schedule was not likely to improve at all over time. She made the decision herself. It wasn't that she 'couldn't do it' but more 'why would you do it?!' and I guess that it easy to understand.
Again, we are very very grateful for the opportunity Nadine has had to experience a state school, and though it has only been a month for her, she has learned a huge amount. The school and her teachers have been really wonderful.
Nadine will 'home-school' with Celia, Adam and I. We will try and model her work more closely on Dunstan's Year 10 curriculum - so any worksheets and project tasks from Year 10 students/teachers would be great!
One bonus is that Nadine gets to continue as part of the school netball team, for which we are also really grateful. The photo is of the gymnasium where the girls' slept last night as part of their team 'camp'... hmmmm.. floor doesn't look too comfortable huh?
