My kids' school has decided that this year, instead of putting up whole class lists on the noticeboards on the last day of school to put a note containing the name of their teacher and room in their report cards (no names of other children in the class were disclosed). These were handed out to the kids on Thursday. New parents of Prep children receive theirs in the mail. Fair enough.
I have an older child at the school and DD2 is starting her FYOS next year. On Thursday last week we were informed that we can ring the school office to find out the Prep classes as they have been finalised and were posted out the same day. I was curious and rang and was told my daughter was in Mrs G's class. I was over the moon and so was DD2 as she was DD1's previous Prep teacher (the other teacher is new at the school so we have no experience of her). The next day I saw Mrs G and told her I was very pleased DD2 was in her class next year. So was she and told my daughter she was looking forward to teaching her next year. I also shared the good news with other parents who asked me about DD2's class.
Fast forward to today when I checked the post and found the letter from the school. To my surprise, it says DD2 is in the other teacher's class . Of course it's too late in the day to ring so have to wait until tomorrow to ring the office. I'm so confused and the more I think about it the angrier I get about the mix up. I haven't told DD2 yet in case it will upset her. I know it's not the end of the world if she's in the other class but do you think I have grounds to request DD2 stay with Mrs G if she is indeed with the other teacher? WDYT?
