  1. Elmhurst rent out their facilities to help keep themselves in the black. I’m sure RBS/White Lodge are gaining financially from this arrangement.
  2. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/oct/20/teenagers-death-after-being-given-antipsychotic-was-potentially-avoidable Oliver’s poor treatment and death is still making headlines. His parent’s and family show such strength continuing to fight.
  3. But if you’re a self conscious 12 year old, say for example you’re one of the first in your class to reach puberty, and a number of the observing parents are watching you intently and whispering behind their hands rather than watching their own offspring how do you think the child feels?
  4. And the children are very aware they are being judged by the watching parents.

    Over the last few years there have been increasing amounts of huge organised cycle races that start at local public school and head towards coast, they claim to be raising money for charity. In May we normally have a sunrise cycle that attracts hundreds and at the same time a two day triathlon that also goes past in opposite direction. When I still did night shifts I had to make sure I wasn’t working otherwise no sleep was possible.

    And then look at you like you shouldn’t be there? 🙄

    I’m back to put groups of Lycra clad cyclists in Room 101. I hadn’t realised we’d had a blissful few months without packs of shouting, Lycra clad, entitled cyclists until they are back this morning. For the past 5 hours we’ve had groups going past the house every few minutes, shouting to each other as the approach the junction ‘LEFT, LEFT, LEFT’. Not sure why they can’t see the various arrows that have been put out or the actual road signs that inform all road users of the T junction. And don’t get me started on those that think the drive is their special stopping point for a drink and a chat
  8. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/local-covid-alert-level-posters Don’t know if this helps
  9. I can’t imagine anyone is committing to arranging a face to face winter course this year. Maybe some will plan a remote course via zoom
  10. My Dd made the decision to quit ballet a couple of years ago and follow a different path. She deferred her university place this academic year but we’ve had lots of conversations about those still in vocational training or auditioning for company contracts and how although her year isn’t as planned she does feel she is in a better place than her dance friends
  11. If you don’t feel able to speak to your son’s school about his anxiety please consider investigating private counselling for him. He needs some help with his anxiety. It is unlikely to disappear without support.
  12. I believe Ruth Brill trained at Tring lower school and then ENBS. Joseph Sissens trained at Tring and then RBS. Just two I’m aware of.
  13. I’d never heard of Erdem before today. It says net profit donated but doesn’t say how much that is per mask?
  14. I can’t help with info regarding that particular institution but were you aware that Elmhurst had posted about taking late applicants onto their sixth form course? There is info on their website under the news section
