There are plenty of schools within Hamilton. Several quite close to us.
But of course we like the one close to Steve's work.
Ben has passed this school on many occassions and quite happily tells us that this is where he wants to go.
As this school is an area that we are not zoned for, then we have had to make an "out of zone" application.
Ben came with me when I filled in the paperwork and that has convinced him even more that he is going to the 'blue and white school' (colour of the buildings!) as he calls it. Their uniform is actually red and black.
We have had to wait several weeks for the ballot to take place and finally we got the call today....
Yes, Ben got in and so he is going to the school we wanted, that is a great school, has a good reputation and is located in a great place for us with our morning set up getting everyone to their relevant places at the right time.
Everything just seems to be happening right for us this year.
