On the 9th June 2020 we found out that the former caretaker at the children’s first primary school had been charged with 21 offences in relation to children. I have not been able to write anything as I didn’t want to hinder the court case, but today he was sentenced; he only got 5 years! No parent should have to go through this; the guilt, the anger, the disgust. He fooled us all. I am grateful I got to hug them tight throughout homeschooling, it comforted me for that period of time to know they were safe at home.
With the back to school photos covering social media; perfectly poised children and their perfectly ironed uniforms. It made me think about what we do to prepare for the back to school routine. It’s quite difficult going from little study to full on study and this year the kids have more homework than before. Different schools have different rules. A different routine.
