Schools are reopening here this week after the summer vacation. We are still waiting to hear back from the School Admissions about Kanna’s admission. According to the Admissions Office, we will hear back from them before September 18th.
It’s a long wait. Kanna hasn’t been going to school since we traveled back to Inda from Worcester. That was at the end of March. We are yet to buy his school uniforms and stuff. The problem is here in the UK, admissions happen through the county, not the schools. All we can do is fill the application form with a choice of three schools and send it to the admissions department and then wait to hear back from them. The Solihull School Admissions department will review the application and contact the schools of our choice and will place the kid depending on where a seat is available.
They are bound to give us admission within our catchment area. But since we are far too late in applying we never know. There is only one school in our catchment area. So we might or might not get admission in that school. So until we get a solid confirmation, we can’t buy uniforms, school bags, etc.
Now, I expected to see me panicking in this situation. But I am not. I am making lists and planning things, but not panicking. After all, my Word of the Year was CALM. And I feel calm. I think whatever lesson the Uncertainty God wanted to teach me, in fact, got through to me! Otherwise how and why will I stay calm at this point?
