Hopefully he will passed

The nephew is done taking the two sets of examination for Kinder 2 in the school where his mom wants him to study. The nephew can now breath and relax after the thorough study in reading, writing, and in math subject. It was like a nightmare for him because he is not allowed to go out and play, no television for the mean time for him to focus and concentrate. I felt sorry for the nephew but this is for his own good, once he passed and will be able to get in, no more pressure like this. In all fairness, the nephew understands the reason why his mom has to do it.

I was the one accompanying the nephew to his last day of examination last week. Honestly, I was so nervous and negative thoughts came in my mind. But when I saw the nephew coming out from the examination room smiling, I feel relieved. I guess the nephew is doing well. The teacher gave us the results of his examination and it is good. The final listings of the students who passed will be posted in the bulletin board this April. I am hoping and praying that the nephew passed the examination. All the effort and sacrifices will be paid off if the nephew passed. Only God really knows. Please God help my nephew. Amen!

JC the Sea Turtle

Last week was the Science and Math Fair at my nephew’s school. We are encouraged to join the costume costplay contest. The kids will be wearing animals costumes made of indigenous materials. It was a challenge for us because we have to make costumes for the nephew. First we did is to ask the nephew what animal he likes. We made him decide by showing him some cartoon movies. After re-watching the five movies, the nephew said that he wants the turtle costume from the movie Sammy’s Adventure. Interesting! Next we collect the materials needed and started making the costumes.

The costume that the nephew wore on the day of the Science and Math Fair is nice. It was his father who made it. And I want to applause him for that because it was a great creation for the first timer. Although he likes his costume, it was a torture for him because it is very hot, he can’t sit down without taking it off and his head is sweating. I congratulate my nephew because he survived. One brave kid I must say. Though we did not win, still I am so proud of the nephew because he develops self-confidence.

Top 9 in first grading

Last Friday was the awarding of honors for first grading. I was not expecting my nephew to be part of the top 10 but hoping he will. My hope was answered when he called as top 9. Oh yeah, I am so proud of my nephew. Although he is too lazy to study his lessons he is able to show up his skills and intelligence. He is able to compete to his classmates that are came from private school. Even though he is just studying in a project hope during his nursery time, he is able to cope up with the lessons.

Their report card also released and saw the promising grades of my nephew. We will double time in studying and practicing him to write his complete name. But will see to it that he is enjoying every time we study so he won’t get bored. It is a long way to go for my nephew and I hope he will enjoy the student life. Hopefully he will improve better in preparation for the entrance examination in the school where his mother wants him to study. Keep fight nephew. Study hard and soar high. Get the top five place, you still have three gradings left. Again, congratulations!

First preliminary examination went well

The first preliminary examination of my nephew at school went well. Out of five examinations he got three perfect score. Seeing the results of his examinations surprises us because we are not expecting it really because he is not paying attention when we study his lessons. Even during the day and night before the examination, he is not concentrating much. He always says that he is tired and wanted to watch his favorite cartoon shows. We did a lot of motivation for him to focus on studying because we want him to get high score. Though his daily quizzes and exercises are pretty high so we are confident that he will do good.

Our sacrifices and efforts for him paid well because his examinations went really well. We are very happy and proud of him because we are not expecting that he will get perfect score. Though it is still early to tell, I can say that my nephew is an intelligent kid just like his mother. We hope that he will continue to do well at school. Also hope that he will develop study habit so he will be so ready when we transferred his to the school where his mother wants him to study. It is a long way to go nephew. Be good and study your lessons well. Good luck!

Telling her my high school experiences

My niece is now in Grade 7 (intermediate level, high school). She will be in new environment, new people to meet and meeting new sets of friends. She is very much excited with her new school uniforms and her new school. I am pretty sure that my niece will have a wonderful experience as she is in her third level of education. They say that high school life in the wonderful life of being a student. It is exciting and challenging level of a student life I must say for you will be experiencing the best and the worse of it. The key is stay focus and embrace every challenges with a smile.

The niece is very open telling me about the happenings at school. She is like a reporter telling me everything when she arrives home from school. I am flattered because she is telling me everything. I can sense that she is enjoying her high school life, though it is too early to tell because classes has just started. More experiences to come her way. Since she is telling me everything, I also told her my high school experiences. I am telling her the best and the worse for her to have an idea if the same situation happens to her. I am sharing it to make her aware so when the worse happens, she is ready to face it. I wish the niece good luck and hope for the best!
