Haven't posted in quite a while, been looking in though

As some of you will remember when we first arrived here with all our worries about the kids being at awkward ages (13) (15), will they fit in, find friends etc, Wednesday night this week we were so proud of our eldest who is now 17 when we went to his School Graduation Ceremony in Mandurah, he won an award for the year 12 Senior business studies highest achiever! I had a lump in my throat when he got up to receive his award. We are just so proud of him,

Congratulations, it's a great feeling when your kid goes up for an award. For those that aren't already out here, they make a big deal of Graduation Day, whether it's primary (year 7) or secondary (year 12), like the Americans do. Also the "Dux" award is a big thing - an overall student of the year award, any parent whose child is picked for that reacts like they've just won lotto!
