Last Day Of School!

Today is the boy's last day of school.  There's no Parent-Teacher's Day this time, we had it once in June this year.  Apparently, it's a once a year event.  The boy brought back his report card last Tuesday.  He managed to retain his first position in class and  positioned 17/294 in the whole standard of 6 classes.  Well done, boy! Daddy and mommy are so proud of you.  You not only survive in a chinese school environment, you thrive!
His school starts streaming from standard 4 onwards and he is going to the top class next year.  I know, more hair pulling moments await but what the heck, school is out after today and we are going for a shopping spree this evening after school. 
Prior to that, he had a drop in his Chinese papers during the 2nd and 3rd term of exams.  We had a talk with him on the possibility of sending him for tuition, for Chinese subject alone.  He was so upset that he cried his lungs out insisting that mommy to remain his Teacher Mommy. I know he was extremely upset when he cried as he hardly shed a tear ever since starting primary 1. :(  He promised to work harder to improve his marks in the final term and he did.  So, a note to mommy, better buck up and work harder to improve your Chinese knowledge in preparation for tougher mission ahead next year. Amen..*keeping fingers crossed*

Kudos to Ian for doing so good in his studies. Bravo to his mummy teacher too. It wasn't easy to retain position number 1, but he did it.

I believe Ian and Mummy will continue do the best in the coming years.

In a chinese school, to be in the top 10% is no joke! Your son is indeed very good...congrats to him!
I remember one time my friend chided me when I scolded my son for not getting top marks for all subjects.. she said,"you know how to scold your son only, how about you sitting for exam? See u can get top marks or not!"
I thought about it.. yeah, why want to stress myself so much.. as long as he is doing fine, it will be alright... If I were to sit for the exams like he did, I dont think i would get half the marks of what he got... hahahaa..
