Got 0 over 10

Last Friday was the week test of my nieces at school. Her mother wanted to teach her for her to get a highest score. While her mother is teaching, her eyes are looking outside to see other kids playing. I can see in her eyes that she wanted to play with them. Her body is present but her mind is absent. The mother got angry and close the door. But then she said to her mother that she knows everything already. No need to study because she knows already. Even the mother is insisted on studying her lessons, her being absents minded makes her mother to just leave her alone.

Today the result of their week examination was given to them by their teacher. It was a surprised because my niece got zero on English subject. Her parents are so angry especially her mother. The questions are so easy if she reviewed her lesson. Well, nothing we can do but to just remind the niece of what had happened. She learned her lesson and she got a punishment from her father. No more going outside and no more playing after school. I hope she learns her lesson and that she will do better next time and study her lessons.

First Day of School

Tomorrow is the first day of school here in my country. Students are excited to go to school because of their new things and new set of uniforms. One perfect example of a very excited kids to go back to school are my niece. They are arranging their bags, shoes and socks. All are set and they are ready for school tomorrow. In fact they are now sleeping for them to wake up early in the morning. They are enrolled in new school and I hope they can cope up with new environment and new set of friends. House will not be so messy, less noise and no quarrel starting tomorrow. It would be a quiet day in the house tomorrow. I can get more rest and less stress.wink!

Reading Skills

In two weeks time my nieces will be going back to school but in different school. New environment for them but good thing is they are enrolled in a school where my sister teaches. Because of financial problems they will no longer be in a private school. Their parents are just being practical because times are really hard nowadays. Today, they are finally enrolled in the new school with the help of my sister (their aunt). Part of the rules as a transferee and in first grade is to test if the student can read. It is important for them to recognized letters so that not difficult for a teacher to start the teaching class. I am so happy that my nieces can recognize letters and can read even slowly. They are now ready for school and I must say they are excited. I am proud of them having the skills in reading because it is an advantage for a kid to know how to read. Thanks to their previous school and to my sister who is a teacher who give her time to teach them how to read.


Education as a Tool…

One of the responsibility as a parent is to send their children to school.  A very important thing a parent should do so that their children will have a better future.  Education is very important to each and everyone of us.  This is the only thing that no one can take it away from us.  One thing that we can be proud of because not everyone is give  the chance to go to school.  Others do not value this things because they did not put in their hearts the importance of having a good and complete educational background. 

Education is a big tool to bring us to a place where we want to be and be a successful human beings.  After all the hardships and struggle to finish school, we will be rewarded with good knowledge.  A knowledge that will be our weapon in a journey of life.  A new chapter in our life where we can make our goals, dreams, and ambitions in life come into reality.  With complete education, we are fully equipped with things that will us to a life of our dreams.  Slowly making our plans and will have the will to make it come true.  No matter what happened it will remain in us forever.  We can bring it anywhere we go and be proud to have it for we work hard to achieve it . And we owe it to our parents for their undying support and love for us.
