Shelby's school held their Academic awards the other night. We knew she had won a $500 bursary (they mailed us a notice) and she was given a letter from her school saying that she needed to attend. We weren't sure if she had won another one because it was all very hush hush...the students were just told that they had won an award and needed to attend. Well she did win another one! Another $400 bursary! So that's $900 in total towards her tuition which is REALLY going to help! Plus we've applied for this new Ontario Tuition Grant that she will probably recieve too and that's another $770 that doesn't need to be paid back like a student loan! That will cover almost half of her first year in College.
There were only 85 bursaries/scholarships given out and she won 2 of them! We are so proud of her! So I now have 2 girls in College :) and Miss Pearl will be starting JK in another year.
Santana, my oldest, has gone back to school too. She just started a couple of weeks ago. She's studying to become a Paralegal and she's loving the course! She passed her equivalency test (GED) and enrolled in a business college in the city. We are so proud of her for going back to school...it's hard to go back once you've gotten a taste of the working world and are out on your own!
In other news....hehe, I've just listed a new Halloween Banner and Candle Mat on Ebay.
Happy Thursday Everyone!
