dd has got into a grammar school? We've moved recently (at last, I'll need to change nickname again) and half of me thinks I should let her former head know since most of her eduction was there. The other half thinks it might seem like boasting and anyway the message will get back next week as we're having some old friends for a sleepover. Opinions please, especially from teachers.
we had a mixed educational experience with the school - not good in the earlier years, better when she got to the last class (taught by the head half time). However we always had friendly relationships with the head even if we weren't always happy with the quality of the teaching. Wasn't planning to write ( I did the thank you letter/presents when she left) - just thinking of phoning them up.
definitely think you did the right thing in phoning the school, hopefulmover - I sure your dd's old head teacher will be so glad to know of her success. I'm sure she'll see it as reflecting well on the school, and the teaching your dd received. I am sure teachers there are fond of your dd and want to know she is happy.
I made a special point of thanking ds's teachers today - the school were holding parents' meetings.The teachers knew ds had got to his first choice grammar and were very pleased for him. I wanted to make sure ds's teachers realised how grateful I was for their efforts.
