A Brief School Tour

We went back to my boy's school last Tuesday to get his uniform and PE shirt.  I prefer those sold at the school with school badge ready than getting the badge for RM0.60 each at the bookshop and iron-on myself like coupons. Lazy mama here. Hahaha...  The school was as usual bustling with activities eventhough school holiday had already started as the primary 1 (for next year) and primary 5 students were having their enrichment classes  and additional classes respectively.

While we were there, my boy gave me a tour of his classroom for next year.  It is located on the 1st floor, not 2nd floor as I was previously told by my boy and the class teacher.  Apparently, the school management has decided to move all classes of standard 2 to 1st floor by converting the 2 bigger rooms previously used as science labs to house 50 pupils in each classroom for the two classes.  *sweat*  I know both my boy and the mommy must work extra hard so that he will not end up last in the class. Imagine having to maintain at least 96% in overall performance in order to stay in the class is simply no easy task!  If only he could improve on his handwriting and check his work more often.  Yes, if only.... 

A note of reminder to myself:  I just hope and pray that I will not turn into a monster mommy in the process and succumbed to the "kiasuness" attitude.  The last thing I want to hear from my boy is "I hate to go to school"..

I can feel your tense there. Only 1 year, you aleady needed to buy a new set of uniform for Ian, he must be grown up a lot last year. This is a very good news. Who doesn't like to see the kid growing up more?

Yes, keep reminding yourself that! So sad that many parents are not aware of that - keep pushing their kids, tuition left, right and centre - some even beat them, refuse to sign their report cards if they do not get first...and one sick parent even stripped his son and made him stand by the roadside in the sun!

I look at the faces of the students these days and I feel sad for them - all stressed out, no happiness in their eyes or on their faces and no joy in studying - it has become a chore, simply a matter of scoring A's or nothing.

Reading your entry here is making me anxious even though my girl is still in kindergarten until end of next year. I could feel the stress of every mother watching her children in primary school and hope I wont turn into a monster likewise.

Yan: The sets that we bought him early this year still fit but a little bit tight now, that's why I got him bigger size this time.

stp: Give me a piece of your mind whenever you deem fit. I can be very kiasu at times. Hahaha.

Hayley: Must learn to take it easy, don't want to die young. Hahaha..

Yvonne: Must keep reminding ourselves that.

Mummy Gwen: Must do the breathing exercise more. breath in breath out. :)

Alice: really scary wo.. My boy got almost 97% in overall performance and positioned 9 in class.. competitive to the max, huh? *shakes head*
