Magazines for Primary School

The exercises

I regret not placing order for these magazines during the start of school early this year as they were cheaper to get directly from the school with postage exempted. I only ordered the 3M which was compulsory.

When Ian started bringing back his 3M magazines, I flipped through the pages and found that apart from pictured stories, there were also exercises relevant to the syllabus taught in school. Ian's class teacher got them to do the exercises as revision before the start of their 1st exam. Me too, got Ian to finish the rest of the exercises at home and I found it quite helpful as a way to reinforce and comprehend what had been learned.

I had tried Kuo Liang, the distributor of the magazines for back issues but was told that they only ordered enough for subscription distribution. I then called their publishing company, Hup Lick and was told that they did accept back issues orders. They then faxed over an order form as I wanted to place order for 6 months' subscription otherwise full year subscription can be done online here. I will get the remaining 6 months' subscription through Ian's school as it will be cheaper.

The staff working at Hup Lick was friendly and helpful. She even took the trouble to call and explain to me that among all, I had actually made duplicate orders for two titles, the only difference was the language, one BM and the other English and suggested the alternatives.

The back issues came via Pos Laju a week after payment was made. Ian was so excited and couldn't wait to finish reading all of them. He would never be seen without a magazine on his hands the 1st week after getting them. He reads while eating his meals, sitting on his throne doing business and before the light is out at night! That's how much he loves reading.
