The Professor recently came 3rd in the whole of Britain in a maths challenge that all schools were involved in. The funny thing is that he hadn't even told his parents he was in the challenge, let alone the results. His mother only found out when she saw the award certificate in his room and asked him about it!
Chatterbox was selected by his school, along with a couple of others, to represent his school in a literary project, where they were going into other schools and talking to younger children about literary things. Afterwards his headmaster wrote to his parents to praise how well he had acquitted himself and to quote some wonderful comments from the other schools about him.

recently won a Leadership award at school. Doesn't he look pleased? I know he was very excited about it. It is his birthday on Friday and I am going down for the weekend, which I am really looking forward to.
