    Ok fellow spelling and grammar peeps I need your help!

    I recently finished writing my yearly reports and I got pulled up on this comment:

    "Well done, Lily, and all the best for Year Two!"

    My Deputy Principal checked my reports and made me take the "and" out so it read like this:

    "Well done, Lily, all the best for Year Two!"

    Was this necessary? Thoughts?

    I think you're right. I always have an ongoing battle with my principal over 'ands' and commas...

    I think your first comment was correct. The second one could use a semi colon after lily.

    I would have taken out the first comma & left the 'and' in. I don't know if it's right, but it's how I'd say it.

    See that's what we used to do ("Well done Lily, ..." but our principal insists on the extra comma. These report wordings are a bone of contention!!!
