A Memorable Day

The kids are having their long school break. I haven't planned anything for them. So far, they've been having a good time at home, watching tv, playing with toys and tv games all day long. Brought them to MegaKidz @ Mid Valley during the Hari Raya Haji holiday and the Petrosains StreetSmart Exhibition last Sunday.

Let them fully enjoy their holidays for now. I think I'll start giving them (especially XY) some work next week, just so they don't lose track of school work. Anyway, I won't burden her, maybe just spend half an hour a day for "revision". Got to prepare for Standard 2, right? She has to work hard and keep up her effort next year, to maintain her results. She exceeded my expectation by getting 1st in class. And she surprised me further when she was selected to receive the award for Best Subject: Mathematics. Unbelievable! Although she did some careless mistakes in some papers, looks like she really checked her work thoroughly in Maths.

We attended the Excellence Awards Ceremony at her school in the morning (very early, had to be there by 7:30 am) on 13th November (didi's concert was at night). She received a certificate and RM20 cash voucher (from a bookstore) for each of the award. The school awards the top 6 students in each class. Quite odd hor, usually it's just 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Maybe because there are only 4 classes per year so they can afford to award more students from each class. :-)

~ so proud of you, ah girl ~

As for her reward, she wanted to go to Kizsport. We brought her to MegaKidz instead. And she's just as happy.

The mommy must be very proud of her. Not easy to ace the class, she must be very careful with her work and has pretty neat handwriting, I guess. My boy always loses marks to these. Hahaha..

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Slavemom, congratulations to your kid. Outstanding!
And nothing like receiving a prize....that will encourage them to further exceed their school work results.

We have several new Malaysian families who migrated here past one year, and all were surprised their kids telling the parents how much they love the schools here.

And one young girl about 10 can't wait to go to school too.
And all the kids have shocked their parents scoring 90% above in their school exams.....

Even their teachers are impressed seeing the kids are new here and their previous language was other than English.

Already a few of the kids have lost their, "yes laaa", ha ha and now talks with a Canadian accent.
You have fun, stay young and keep well, Lee.
