Starting Primary 1: Delayed but Advanced

After an extended 4-month long holiday, I finally started my first day of Primary 1 in a guoji xuexiao (international school) on 18th Feb. I joined in as a new student for Semester 2. The school term here starts in August and I've already missed half a year of classes. According to my class teacher, I'm doing fine in class and do not have any difficulty catching up with my lessons. Phew!

First Day of School
Mummy did not accompany me at all (she was not encouraged to) on my first day of school and I had no qualms about going to school on my own in a school bus! I came home in the afternoon exclaiming gleefully "I love my school! It's so fun... more fun and better than kindergarten! I love it. I love going school". I went on and on, explaining how my day went at school and how much I enjoyed myself.

Surprisingly, being an extremely shy and timid person, I made friends quite easily. I already had 2 best friends on the first day... T from India and J from Korea. I sit beside J in class.

Parents-Teachers Conference
The first PTC was held just 2 weeks after school started. Ms M, my class teacher said I'm doing good in school. I am not as SLOW as daddy and mummy have perceived me to be. I write fairly fast in class and I am able to finish all my class work on time. I can even finish my meal (lunch) within 20 minutes, much to daddy and mummy's delight! Not bad for a slow eater who usually takes 1 hour to finish a meal!! Ms M also gave me an English test (to assess her existing pupils while new pupils like me are exempted) and I scored 19/20. Ms M was quite impressed :)

What Do I Study in School?
I spend 7 hours (8.30am-3.30pm) in school daily, studying the following subjects: English Language, Chinese Language, Mathematics, Science, Music, Art, Physical Education, Chinese Culture, Social Study, Information and Communication Technology, Dance and Drama and Co-curricular Activities (I joined the Chinese dough-figurine making class).

Every Monday, I also learn "tai chi" in my PE class! I guess this must be a China thing hahaha... I come home with homework everyday but the amount is manageable.
