I work at schools so maybe I can do with a bit of forewarning. Can you name the school Faerie?

Alberview Primary School - Alberton

The last couple years saw it going from one of the best schools in the area to one of the most problematic. Some info (the school's not very forthcoming) would really be interesting.

I'm relieved he's only got a few weeks left there, the poor lad's had a hell of a year there.

@ Boogie, I didnt allow either of my son's at the veldschools - due to the experiences I had way back then. My s/o also have horror stories to tell about his veldschool. I've allowed them on the leadership camps (3 days/2 nights) but was extremely particular and visited the venues beforehand and ensured that the teachers etc KNOW who I am and that I'm watching, both those experiences turned out to be positive. My youngest will beginning next year attend a three day induction camp to the high school, but I'm not overly concerned about that one for two reasons - my eldest loved it and everything is on camera, and the parents are allowed to view it if they so wish, the kids also receive a dvd with their experiences - the camp takes place to replace the routine "ontgroening" and I prefer the manner that they deal with it. Its very controlled.

what was the final outcome Faerie? did your son go and what was his response?
Faerie (November 10, 2010, 15:11:35 PM):
I gave him the choice and he decided to go. He seemed utterly unimpressed with it, and upon prodding delivered his usual "'twas boring" - which I had to be satisfied with. The only thing he did complain about was that lunch was a hot dog and he doesnt eat meat.

A bit of an anticlimax really! :-\

I still think they're too young for it, aside from my initial concerns, I now tend to think that it was probably a bit over their heads actually.

probably depends how it was presented to them to make it 'not so boring' like show them the torture chambers and solitude lock ups and let them sit there with no lights on! NO! i'm just joking...glad it was a damp squib though.
