Time is flying really fast and with a blink of an eye, we have completed 1st half of this year. I feel lucky to have kids around to keep me busy and active (tiring though). I am writing this a bit late as we were enjoying our school vacations at grandparents home. Before the school holidays have begun we had our 1st Parents-teacher Meeting(PTM).
Usually for Primary 1 there are no monthly PTM’s yet but we can approach teachers whenever there is a need to check on the status and they are really prompt in replying. I really appreciate the way they connect with parents which I feel is very important to build that confidence and understanding between parents and teachers as we all come from a different background and culture.
We got the opportunity to speak with his teachers and were so glad to hear that he is doing really great in his class and all his subjects. Deep inside my heart was the feeling “WOW !” That’s what every parent want to hear about their child.
When his teacher said,” He always want to finish his work 1st before anyone else can do and he is really a brilliant student ! Keep throwing brain teaser at him.” -Maths Teacher
His English teacher is very sweet and he seems to be her favourite types,” She was praising a lot that his communication, reading skills are superb and been a class monitor he does perform his role and responsibilities perfectly, sometimes a way ahead been too much into his role of a monitor by monitoring everything (wink).”
We got his progress report file to track for next 2 years which he took responsibility to keep properly. (Fingers crossed)
As a parent, we love to hear good things but at the same time, my husband has a rule to always know in all his PTM “3 good things and 3 things to improve upon” which I completely agree with him if we know we are doing good then what should be our next level. It is easier to mould and make them learn values and make role model at this tender age.
Overall I find him more groomed and confident boy over last 6 months of the journey in his primary school! Way to go and more to learn …
Really sweet of his teacher to give this lovely token of appreciation to him for performing good in his subject and scoring full marks.
Will write again after next term!
