We had a note come home earlier this week inviting us to come to the school assembly as Grace was getting a Merit Certificate!! I was so excitied when I read it but had to be cool as Grace had no idea what the note was about. I asked her, "do you know what this is for?" and her causal reply was "Oh something about the teacher telling us to invite our loved ones to the school assembly." So we all went up today to watch her! Being in year 1, their names are called out first, two kids per class get one. When her name was called, I saw her turn her head to her classmate as if to say "hey thats me?!" and then she got up, walked over to the Principle, shook his hand and stood in line with the rest of the kids.
It says: Grace completes all tasks quietly and efficiently, taking considerable pride in her work. An excellent start to Year one Grace!
Week 4 of Year one and a Merit Certificate already! I have my proud Mummy hat on today!
