My P6 daughter has been selected by her school to go to Melbourne for a 7 day exchange programe in late May.
Only 10 students from the school have been selected.
I am still wondering should I let her go?
* This is a home-stay - so dd will stay with the aussie family and attends the same school as the girl. Not sure what type of family and what sort of checks the school will conduct..
*This will be her first out of country experience without us - naturally we are a bit concerned. And this is during the winter period as well.
*This is her P6 year - not sure if this trip (and the subsequent hosting in July where the aussie girl will come to our place to stay) will affect her studies.
What will you do? I did joking tell my dh that we should go to melbourne during this period too
