Today is the last day of exam (not mine…but JS’s)…yup…even for a 4 years old she has got to go through exams already. This is the 3rd time during this school year.. I suppose there will be one last time before school terms end.
Even kindy’s exam today is like a “no play play” affair. Weeks ahead, the teachers already handed out revision sheets for them to do at home and with a notice to parents to guide their kids and also an exam schedule is distributed to parents…(hecks..this is only kindy la)
The 1st time I received such thing..I was shock…heck, I only want to sent my girl to socialize and have fun (there’s no play school here) and I got so stress up and putting a lot of pressure on my poor little girl…I did the drill…a lot of own made flash cards according to the revision sheets and it was no fun…really no fun. After all she doesn’t know the concept and the objective of EXAM!!!
The 2nd and 3rd time I received such notice..i really couldn’t be bothered anymore…I just make sure she doesn’t have to skip school that exam period (which is make sure she’s on top health and not fall sick)…no more revision …no more drill and I just treat it as any normal school days….i reckon she’s just too young to have to be put on this kind of pressure…. I wonder what has become of all the pre-schools, why has it become so result orientated???
