There is a lot of talk out there about the parents with their little ones starting their first year of school and with good reason. It is such an emotional time for both the parents and the children, with that heart wrenching first break from home.
But today I am contemplating my youngest child starting their last year of school. As we head towards the HSC I know that this year will hold many challenges, not the least with University expectations and finding time to fit in all the required study
and assessments that lead towards the final exams.
I have actually been here before – as I say, this is our youngest child, but the experience will be wildly different this time I feel.So have a bit of a thought tomorrow for those of us who are saying goodbye to childhood and watching our kids enter the real
I wont have to do the school drop off, he can drive himself. I wont have to meet the teachers, pack his lunch, or even give him a kiss goodbye (can you imagine how embarrassing that would be!!) But I will be thinking about the fact that this is his last
ever first day of school!
I guess I need to take my own advice and Keep Calm – Let the last year of School Begin!
Best of luck to all the kids beginning this wonderful experience – believe me when I saythat you will look back on these years as the best years of your life in most instances!

And to all the parents with little ones starting Kindy tomorrow, good luck to you as well!
Have your tissues ready and make sure you meet up with someone for a cuppa and a bit of a cry! You will feel all the better for it!
