For many families August has mixed emotions. The joy and relaxation of holiday time mixed with the excitement and nervousness about the changes that will occur in September. For many young people in the village September brings an exiting new chapter in their lives. Starting nursery, primary school, high school, study for GCSEs or A-Levels and even leaving home to go to college / university- a time of great change.
It is a time of anxiety for parents too. Will Johnny make new friends? How will Sally cope with all the older children on the bus?
The Tarvin On-line team don't have any great pearls of wisdom, but do wish all those in the village faced with change in September all the very best. We thought the following quotation was particularly relevant.
"It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched..."
C S Lewis
We'd also love to hear about your new life. If your moving away from the village and wanted to be reminded of home all you need to do is to log on to Tarvin On-line and find out what is going on.
