Advice on schooling

Post Posted: Sat Feb 05, 2011 7:53 am

I'm thinking of moving back to Barbados in May. I used to live there 10 years ago. I have a daughter of 10 who is half Barbadian (no status tho sadly) who is due to start secondary school in September.
She struggles a bit with school & has a definate problem with maths & english.
I really want her to get the chance of a good education in Barbados, as I think it is her birthright, but without her passing her 11c plus what can I do & where can I send her to school?
Any ideas anyone?
Thanks

Hi janethepainter

Welcome to the forum Cool I am sorry I am unable to help with this question as I have no personal experience in this area. Any chance of some private lessons on a one to one basis? It might be once she has caught up it will motivate her. Trouble is, children do not always appreciate the value of education until they are grown up and look back and then say "if only" Smile

Hope someone can help with your question
Kind regards
Carole
