IT CAN BE DONE! Dear Annabel, I have just picked up a copy of your magazine and thought it was a really interesting read. I found it useful, especially the focus article about university choices. There has been a lot of stigma in the press lately, about single parents


who can’t do a good job with their children, that they are happy to receive benefits and live off the state. Well I’m a single parent and I live on a council housing estate and I don’t have any money. But I decided I wanted the best for my two sons so that they could escape from this area where I live, which is depressed with few jobs. With help from my Mum and Dad, I decided to look for the best schools, where my sons would have an opportunity to do well and to have a chance in life. Well after years of hard work, my elder son has just had his GCSE results with 10 As and my younger son has just been awarded a scholarship at the Manchester Grammar School, where Prince Charles is patron of the bursary fund for boys from poor backgrounds. So I know that it’s through hard work and giving them direction that has helped them both succeed. I also read in First Eleven that chemical engineering is a great career. I


am crossing my fingers that my son will study it. Mrs C Keane
