Spring Progress Report, 2015-16

We’re a quarter of the way done with this school year.  Here’s how we’ve fared so far against our Program Plans 2015-16.

Oldest who is enrolled in university is a couple of weeks from finals.  She will be completing her second semester by the end of the month with one less course compared to last semester (math, biology, physics, and Greek). As she is finalising her decision on a major, she’s hoping to take one or two courses during the summer semester before heading back home to spend time with her siblings.

Second child who is graduating from high school this year has been accepted to the same university as oldest and still waiting for other results.  Here’s a summary of how she’s doing in her last year as a Distributed Learner in BC:
