The Australian school year comes to an end on either 5 or 12 December depending on what school your child attends.
Last year Alexander was awarded an academic award at his College's end of year Speech Night. A great achievement, but I sometimes think I should have got that award.
I am pleased to report that once again he will be receiving an academic award. However, this one is far more important and special because he did all the hard work by himself, he achieved the grades by himself (just needed mum to push him along from time to time).
Anyway Speech Night is November 27, and I'm sure to have some pics to share.
Award night is what we would call it. I've gone to a couple...for me it's one of those things you do for your children...but our children don't make speeches, the teachers do....I think I'd like it better if the children gave the address.
