We are planning to go to India for good this summer and thinking of booking tickets. If we go one week before the school closes the tickets are working out cheaper than if we go after the school closes. My daughter, 11 yrs old, does not agree to go before the school closes. Till now she has perfect attendance and by the time we go (one week before the school closes) the counting period for awarding perfect attendance will be done. The last 3 weeks are not considered so she will not miss getting the certificate. She may also get some awards for some subjects too. But the awards day is on the last day of school and she wants to be there to receive the award. Even if she is not there, her dad can collect it for her and send it to us. The schools in India start 2 weeks after we go if we wait till the last day which is the awards day, but I am thinking if we go little early like one more week early then they (11yr old and 7yr old daughter) will get time to adjust to the climate and other things. Suggest me some solution here.
