A New School for My Daughters
July 19, 2017 5:05pm CST
After more than two months of searching, we finally found a new school for our two young girls. We've been to as far as the capital (Metro Manila) and a neighboring province (Rizal) in hopes of getting a good placement with partial academic scholarship for our daughters. We ended up enrolling them in a Catholic school about 30 minutes from where we live. By far, this school is one of the most competitive in our province in terms of academics and athletics. The cost of education (tuition and miscellaneous fees) is kind of steep compared to other private schools and Catholic schools. But we've been assured by colleagues and friends that this one is a good school. I hope that my girls will quickly gain new friends and adjust to the new environment. Have you ever had to transfer school when you were in grade school or high school? How was it like for you? * Image by Pixabay

I went to a Catholic high school in Metairie Louisiana which is a suburb of New Orleans in 1978 after my relatives left Panama after the Carter-Torrijos Treaty ended the Canal Zone in 1979. To put it mildly it was worse than being in boot camp for 1 and a half years.

Your kids can easily adjust especially if they themselves are friendly. Our daughter, changed school in a far place when she was accepted as a scholar in Philippine Science High School in Goa, Camarines Sur. She would go there by a van together with classmates from Albay too that send them off there on Sunday afternoons then fetch them on Friday afternoon after their dismissal.
