The thing is that kids leave schools and go elsewhere for lots of reasons, parents and kids, it seems, have that choice. The thing for me is that in the 80's when Podgorani wore walk shorts and sandals, moving schools was tantamount to treason. Kids that left a school to go elsewhere were not tolerated. Now basketball, photography, golf, lawn bowls all provide opportunities. People, parents, kids all realize that we don't all have to go to grammar to be lawyers, and everyone at grammar doesn't have to be a lawyer. We have a choice, and we should be proud that our education system and the people in the system recognise opportunities and kids can chase their passion while getting an education.
I know that the walls close in on those stuck in the poorer areas, but there are so many opportunities for everyone who looks hard enough. This young girl is living proof of that.
