My little girl, not so long a baby so tiny that she could slip through your fingers starts ‘big school’ today.
Almost 5-years old she starts Primary school at Bermuda High School (BHS) today, and watching her last night help lay her school uniform out and runaround in her new school shoes bought a lump to my throat. Where did that time go?
Almost 5 years ago, Phil Parkinson was trying to lead us back to The Championship as the Addicks competed in their first 3rd Division season for 29 years. Seems like an eternity ago doesn’t it when put like that?
Bermuda High School is the only all girl school on the island and runs from years 1 to 11. Although we liked the idea of an all-girl school, even at this age, it was also we thought simply the best school we visited.
My little girl approaches everything with confidence and steely determination, unlike her father who cried his eyes out on his first day at Primary and chased his own mother out into the playground.
Good luck to any other parents who had a lump in their throats this week taking their ‘babies’ to their first day at ‘big school’.
