Seriously considering sending my kids to the school with no easy transport options.


Because I'd like to send my kids to a school where we can walk together (when they're young), and then they can ride their bikes (when they're older), and on wet days they can catch the bus (from literally across the road), and when I'm not home I can tell them to walk to Grandma's house instead, because it's on the way.

But...

There's this school which is none of those things. They couldn't walk there. They couldn't ride there. They couldn't catch a bus there. It would involve me driving them every single day until they turned 12.

...and it's a bilingual school. A bilingual English/German school, where all the grade 6 kids are legitimately fluent in German, and they have maths classes in German, and art classes in German, and science lessons in German, and literally half their schooling is in German.


Today I learned that the two bits of schooling that matter to me most are the independent transport options and the languages. And that I can't have both at once.

Or move closer to the school you like... 😊
