I pay a fair bit for my son's education. It's not one of those schmancy private schools or anything - just the local catholic school - but I have certain standards I expect to be met. I guess you could call it value for money.

But as time goes on, this school baffles me more and more.

I read the school newsletter online yesterday, and came across this little gem....

Iced coffee flavoured milk?  For primary school kids? Call me a fuddy duddy, but that's just absurd.

Then Master 8 gives me a note from the Year 3 teachers. It outlines what they'll be learning this term blah blah blah.  All was well until I got to the end and saw this:

And these are supposed to be the people educating my child??? And don't even get me started on the so-called punctuation of that list.

I never thought I'd be one of those people who whinges about everything, but this school really grinds my gears sometimes.

Do you have any "issues" with your child's school?


  1. Far out - they'll be selling lattes and espresso shots next.

    My kids just go to the local public school - who likes to think it's a private school so we're still spending a fortune on all the kids activities. Can't win.

  2. Gee, that's a bit of a worry. The coffee-flavoured milk in particular! Imagine a school full of kids bouncing off the walls?
    As a journo, I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to grammar and punctuation too. So I don't blame you for being frustrated by that. Why send children to school if they can't even get the basics right?

  3. ROFL :D Don't even get me started on the money they're always sucking out of us. That could be a whole other post in itself!


I love it when you comment, makes me feel all warm and gooey inside. So go on - make me feel special!
