Orientation day and 1st day of school

Destinee was registered into one of the Chinese school in Cheras but so unluckily dat she was rejected by the *duh* Ministry. Pappy wanted to appeal but the principal told him it was not advisable as there were already 9 (NINE) Primary 1 classes and there were about 50 students in a class. Wuah seh! I told Pappy to forget about it.

Destinee was placed in a school which was not to my liking and I was quite worried where to register her. My friend, Ah Nee, came to my rescue. She recommended me to the school where her kids are attending. This school is semi-government and is 48 years old situated in Persiaran Chulan, behind the Chinese Maternity Hospital. She told me I wouldn't have problem registering Destinee in this school as there were not many students. The school is small compared to other schools in KL and there are only 200+ students. Yes, u read rite, 200+ students in the school (from primary 1 to primary 6).

The procedures were: We brought the rejected letter (posted to us) and Des to the school (where she was placed) to be stamped to show dat Des's name was 'cancelled' off. A note was handed to us from this school and we brought this note to the school recommended by Ah Nee. We showed the letter to the new school and was informed there wasn't any problem. *phew*

We were shown around by one of the teachers (very friendly and courteous) and after some 'surveying' around, we were satisfied with the surroundings and environment (could hear birds chirping every now and then). Des told us she liked the school and without hesitation, we filled up a form (transferring Des from one school to another) and the rest of the procedures were done by the school. So, behind her BC, she has a record of 4 different school stamps (heehee).

Orientation day (29th December, 2008) was a week before the actual day (5th January, 2009) of school. There were only 19 students (10 boys and 9 girls) in Des's class and was the one and only Primary 1 class in the school (kekeke). Dat means not much comparison, wonder whether it is good or bad? To me, it's good cos the teachers will be able to control and will be more responsible.

A teacher led the kids to a classroom and I didn't exactly know what happened cos I was busy filling up lots of forms and making payments (RM88 for school fees, RM150 for donation and summed upn to about RM200+). Luckily Ah Nee was around to help me take some pics of Des. I supposed the girls and boys were introduced to each other and later were made to line up and brought around the school. Des was one of the small pint size (if not the smallest size) pupil of the class ... sigh ...

Gee, she held hands ... with the one of the biggest size boy. Hahaha.

Happy moment -- gift from her teacher.

One moment she was happy going around the school with her new friends but the next she was like dat:

A sad face

She asked me why her friends from kindy were not around and she started to have tears in her eyes ... sigh ...

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL (6th January, 2009)

Pics below were courtesy of Ah Nee.

During the very first assembly. Primary 1 were without stools so were made sit on the ground.

I could see a lot of 'yawinings'

The 9 girls.

Her new shoes.

I found out dat Des was not only the smallest size, she was oso the shortest, thinnest and the cry baby of the class *slaps head* ... sigh ... sigh ... sigh ...

Des's school textbooks:

Most of the books were borrowed and has to returned at the end of the year. Took pics of the books as proof of evidence dat the books were old books esp. the Chinese book which is quite worn out.
p/s: A big Thank You to Ah Nee for helping me out.

Msau - Ya ya, not easy to find such school, dat was why I registered Des into this school.

I can say dat the teachers there are, so far, very responsible. I get to talk to them (even to the principal) personally every now and then.

Jazz -Ya ya, 200+ students in the whole school. Des and her classmates are still treated like kindy students by the teachers. They still get stickers, sometimes sweets, for good performances. Good hor? And I get to know not only the teachers and classmates, I oso get to know the parents of Des's classmates too. *heehee*

What school is that? Semi government means what?

Must pay? But 200 students only, I also won't mind.

At Sat Jun 06, 08:23:00 PM, Blogger Zara's Mama said...

I mean your RM88 is monthly or 1 time?

At Sat Jun 06, 10:31:00 PM, Blogger etceteramommy said...

Is the school a new school? Maybe you want to find out about their past PMR/SPM passing rate etc? Hehehe.. i know.. sounded so kiasu right :P

Chanel - I really don't know whether it's good or not but I hope I did the right choice.

ZMM - Semi govt school means the school's half controlled by the govt and half by the private sector i.e it's not totally a private school.

Des's school's a Chinese school situated in Persiaran Chulan behind the Chinese Maternity Hospital. It's SJKC Nan Kai.

The school fee is to be paid monthly which is RM88 whereas I gathered dat u only need to pay a little sum (about RM20 or less) for the school fee in govt school.

Yvonne - No No, it's not a new school, it's oredi 49 years old this year. There's no PMR/SPM in this school cos it's a primary school. FYI, The passing rate for UPSR is not bad.

Magictree - Ya ya, I'm crossing my fingers and toes dat everything will go smoothly for her.

阿霓 - 真的是谢谢你. No worries, no worries, I'll spread the word around about this school.

Jacss - U'll have one more on its way for u to worry. Hahaha!

Ginie - Yes, I'm sure it's a lot easier for the teachers to manage such a small group.

Aiyo, u think I'm not scared meh. I enquired from Nan Kai if there was any place left before I cancelled the original placing.
