Every now and then every set of parents need to issue a rallying call to their children.
Our thoughts and inspiration can swing widely over a range of famous speeches that begin with familiar words:
“Once more into the breech dear friends.”
“We will fight them on the beaches.”
“Come on England.”
“You can only do your best.”
“What ever happens we will still love you.”
So long as the message is heartfelt I am sure that parents are allowed a little poetic licence – they don’t have to be word perfect.
With some Eleven Plus examinations only days away it is time for the `Annual Eleven Plus Letter’.
My dear son / daughter
In a few days time you will be writing your Eleven Plus examinations.
Naturally we all wish you the best of luck.
Read questions carefully.
Think before you write.
Do the best you can.
Lots of love
Your Mum and Dad.
