    No...that's how the schools in our area do it too.

    When get to school tomorrow ask around if there is a parents meet up for coffee at a local cafe. It is great way to give yourself something else to focus on. It is a good way to have support and to meet other parents.

    The school where I work just tell the kids on the first day. They all know it's not official until numbers have been confirmed. Two years ago, we lost one class due to numbers. If we had one extra child, we would've retained the class.

    Some schools stay in the same class as the previous year for the first 3 weeks until numbers are sorted.

    How did today go, for those that started? DS was so excited and ran into class to introduce himself to his teacher. He happily waved me off and appears to have had a good day. He's not at all interested in telling me what he did all day, but he was the same at kindy too!

    I did ok, went off to work so that kept me busy. I did clock watch a bit though and wonder how he was doing. I had a couple of tears on my lunch break but overall the day was a success for us both!

    He did great. I thought he would be sad as all his friends went up to grade one and he was kept down. Instead he felt important show other kids around. So happy with how he has handled it.
    I took another mum out for coffee and we were still sitting there chatting at 12. So the day went really fast.
