Coming home from school today the oldest of my three sons, the Thinker, presented to me his beloved father the latest example of his achievement at school. A metallic magnet plate telling him that he had reached the point of having ten stars in his class. Stars are given for good work, good behaviour, good time keeping and helping others. I think of it more as ‘citizenship points’ than ones for education. He does well every year in this and his teacher has told me that he looks out for others constantly…if only all human beings were this way.
Well done me laddo!
