I am constantly amazed at how different my children’s education is from mine. The volume of homework (they actually have homework in the evening, I don’t remember doing homework in Grade 5, 6 or 7), the rigour (my eldest is going through full 1.5 hour exams in his classes in Grade 7 this week) and the quality of education.

A few weeks ago, our son brought home the class science project …. they hatched them in the class!


Progress, for sure.


  1. awwwwww, the new family pet?When I was in grade 4 the teacher brought in a few baby chicks to keep in the classroom. Within a few weeks, she had had enough, they grew so fast and the smell was unbearable!
