As a parent, you always have concerns – particularly when it doesn’t fit the ‘traditional mould’. Firstly, I wondered if pulling Joshua out of mainstream school was the right decision and whether now was the right time. Secondly, I wasn’t sure if online schooling was suitable, however after seeing how long InterHigh had been running for and conducting my own research, this put my mind at ease. I concluded that it provides Joshua with the environment that will help him further build the skills required to thrive, not only academically but personally too. The benefits outweighed any initial concern, and we all see this as an exciting opportunity for him to grow independent responsibility and his football career.
Additionally, I feel the pandemic has normalised online schooling. While Covid-19 has certainly been a challenge, learning online is something many students have adjusted to, including Joshua, and in some instances, have responded better to their studies than before. It fits with Joshua’s lifestyle, and we want to continue making the most of this experience. We are really excited to see what the coming months and years have in store for Joshua!
