So whilst out and about with my mum on Friday my phone gave that familiar beep indicating a text had arrived. I fumbled in my bag and withdrew my phone, it was school, I get a lot of texts from school. Don’t forget today is this or your son is bringing home a letter about this, all very useful as my boys tell me nothing and bring me very little, but not that interesting to receive.
So I glanced at the message which read ” Stig is going to the High School today for a Gifted & Talented event. We will be back in school for lunch”
I shared the text with my mum and joked that it almost made it sound like Stig was the Gifted and Talented one, but imaged instead that the children were all going to witness some older Gifted children showing off their Talents.
Fast forward after school and Stig comes bursting through the front door with a sample bottle full of purple liquid.
“Look what I did at the High School today” he beams.
So it transpires that he was chosen as one of only ten children in his school (400 pupils strong) considered gifted and talented in science, to go and do experiments in the labs at the High School. Well I could not be prouder and I’ll be keeping my doubting thoughts to myself because he is full of pride for himself too, as he should be. Oh and the sample of purple liquid; extracted red cabbage juice of course.
