One very important thing to report is that I have now reached the magic number, which for me is £5,000, and I am now in a position for the Realising Dreams Foundation to step in for the last £1,200. I have been sitting on about £4,600 ever since the Global Citizenship non-uniform day, just biding my time until my last scheduled bake sale. No sooner had I had my last official day at school than I was back, selling lots of delicious cakes, cookies and tray bakes at the S2 parent's evening. After selling leftovers at break the next day (honestly, that place can't get rid of me!) we made £301.05, taking me to the total of around £4,960. This took me by surprise a bit as I wasn't expecting to be so close to the end!

More exciting news to make next year real was getting my placement email. I was expecting it the last week of April. And then the first week in May. And then came the second week of May, still without an email though Project Trust promised it was coming! But they still made us wait until the end of the week!
There are lots of practical things to be taken care of like vaccinations and disclosures now that I definitely know where I'm going and I'm now on the countdown to training back up on Coll and then to my departure! Not long now...!
