I am messaging you with bad news, dd has come home from vocational not only has she struggled with terrible homesickness but she has struggled with her dietary requirements which we always knew was going to be a BIG risk!!! We are feeling very emotionally drained and quite obviously gutted...as well as leaving a financial nightmare to sort out with fees and funders to pay back!!!

 I am very proud of Our dd she has made a very brave choice knowing what she has given up!!! But we will continue to support her 100%...

 

Thank you once again

C xxxx

A great big hug to you and your dd, she has made a very brave choice. Two of the Brits who went out to Russia in September have or are returning home, one to go to Elmhurst and the other will give up dancing. Vocational schools are not for everyone and it certainly does not mean the end to a dancing career. Good luck to your very brave little girl. xx

I'm so sorry to hear this; a tough time for you all. But there is life beyond vocational school and it sounds as if she has made a brave decision. I don't know your story but whatever, I think it is one of the toughest decisions to make.

 

Wishing your family and daughter the best and success on the next step.x

All the very best to you and your dd as she settles back in at home. A brave decision, but clearly the right one for your dd at the present time. The toughest bit is actually making the decision, after that you breathe a big sigh of relief and just get on with things. We had to give up a year 7 vocational place a few years ago, for different reasons, but it certainly wasn't the end of the road. Most important thing is that she is happy and that you are not constantly worrying. Good luck.

C4D - you have been amazing in supporting your daughter not only to enable her to fulfill her Hammond dream but also supporting her in this brave, difficult decision. And you will never have that 'what if...' moment - you should feel so proud that you did all you could for her. Whatever she has gained from her time there will not be lost and she is still so young that her dream is still very much within her reach.

Sending you both all our very best wishes and lots of hugs xx

What a tough decision for your dd to make. There's no shame in trying vocational school and finding that it's not right for her for the time being. It's much better than not trying it and thinking "if only" for years to come. I do, however, agree with hfbrew that perhaps a final decision should be postponed for a week or two in case your dd has a change of heart once she has had a chance to take stock of the situation. I don't know your dd or her specific reasons for wanting to leave vocational school but I do know a few children who have gone to boarding school and have had a very rocky time for some months before they eventually settled down. Only you and your dd will know whether vocational school just isn't right for her now.

What a tough decision for you both. Hope your DD is OK and at least she gave it a go. Boarding is not for everyone and children leaving during the first term is not as unusual as you might think. Often they decide to try again when they are a bit older in year 10 or 6th form.

best wishes and good luck to you both. I echo what others have said - you can only do what is best for your DD and if at the moment that is staying at home and dancing locally then so be it. If it is meant to be I am sure she will get the opportunity again when she is more ready to cope with it all. At the end of the day, whatever path our children take in life all we want for them is to be happy and healthy.

Oh,and just to add,thank you also for sharing your news with us all on here. You could have kept that private and we would have been none the wiser,and you would have had every right to do so. Thank you for your openness with people you have never met.

So tough to get to this point but I am pleased that some of the stress is over for you all. I know how hard it is waiting for a call and hoping so badly that there will be a cheerful voice at the end of the phone. Better to have a happy healthy daughter who can sit at the kitchen table telling you about her day. There is always next year, and the year after that....xxxx
