Returning to School/College

Dear All


Hope you are okay.

Around this time, our children and grandchildren are returning to school.

Some are going to primary and others into secondary education.

There are always nerves at the prospect of something new.


Oh yes, and for our mature friends, college and evening classes are due to start.

Learning as an adult can improve their job prospects, fill in gaps in knowledge or can be for fun.

There are various subjects on offer, held in a variety of locations.


Let us all hope that young and mature students can be inspired by education,
make new and reliable friends and be happy and safe at their place of learning.

So to all those returning to "Skool" (!) as it is affectionately known, :-)
Take very gentle care
Lots of good wishes
Elizabeth, EOS

I think it is always scary - new dorms, new masters, I recall being petrified purely because it was change.

Gentle nudge for the intrepid learners.
