I’VE TAKEN PHOTOS of M’s first day of school since Year One. Where we were before, the school academic year always began on 1st September (unless it falls on a weekend).
M has lived in four countries and gone to school in three countries. It can be tough for a child adjusting to a new school in an entirely new environment. I feel for her as she will always be “the new girl in class” every few years, and will not have “childhood friends” to graduate with.
Still, when I look back at her school photos, I remember those special moments she shared with friends and teachers and the international exposure she gains.
Years down the road, I hope she will look back at her school years as fondly as I have felt in helping to preserve those memories.
When we returned home that October, she resumed Year Six in a new school in November, where she has remained till today.
