Has he just moved schools?

How old is he?

He must be one of the youngest in his year - is he the youngest? Would that be a problem, the others might be a bit more 'worldly'? Is it a coed school (I can't remember the outcome of your 'school selection process'wink). My dd2 is now in second year (she is nearly 14, that is why I was asking about the age thing), and mentioned that 'Paul texted me, he is my friend now, last year he had no friends'. (We had had discussions at home about trying to be especially nice to quieter kids). So it can take a bit of time. Is there a counsellor or chaplain or anyone you could chat to - some teachers, in the vague subjects like CSPE and SPHE can be good at helping to integrate the shyer class members. I'd imagine the formal parent teacher meetings will be next year? After Christmas - not next school year, I mean.As for you embarrassing him, that is your job grin
