I have transferred my children from a private mandarin school to a normal government school.. why? Because my children doesn’t want to learn mandarin anymore, can’t blame them.. it is so stressful to see them doing their homework, I can imagine how they go through the learning everyday in the class. As much as I want them to continue in that school, I can’t force them either.
They seems so happy in the new school but everything so different, cannot compare because everything is so different, from the environment, the subjects, the syllabus, discipline …everything.. even the uniforms. The first time we go to the new school, most children look at my son like he was an alien.. no wonder because my son was wearing short pants while over there all boys wearing long pants. The sports attire in the previous school was tshirt and short pants while in the new school they need to wear tracksuits. Tell me about fashion, why can’t they just wear tailored sportsman breeches, look nicer don’t you think?
Well whatever it is, as long as my children can adapt and happy with the new school environment, I and my husband support whatever they decision in what they want to learn. As long as they love to learn, we are fine with it. I just hope they can settle in calmly and make new good friends.
