Nostalgia UPSR.....

Yesterday was the results. Very pleased to hear that 2 of my nieces had 5As and one nephew the twin of one of the nieces, gotten 4As 1B. When I bought Utusan for my FIL just now, i browsed through the papers before i handed them to him. What i noticed were, firstly more girls had better results than the boys (would this be more mat rempits soon??) and secondly Utusan had a few write ups on those students who come from less privilege background but did very well in the exam. I read that some of the students are 'anak tukang sapu', 'anak jaga', 'anak nelayan' and so forth. I am not undermining students from the more privilege background , but i am just admiring the will of these students. I will be using these stories for my younger kids to appreciate what they are having and by right they should be doing much better when their time comes. I too just happened to watch a lovely movie on channel 702 Hallmark titled "The Triumph", story about a determined teacher and students to prove that being poor is not the hindrance to success, albeit a difficult one.

I congratulate my nieces and nephew for the excellent results and to the rest of the students who did well. For those who did not do as well, it is really not the end of the world. Some people 'peak' later in their studies. This UPSR is a small first step, if we slipped a bit plenty more time to get over bigger steps ahead.

Just sharing the picture taken on the day my first born gotten his UPSR results, in late 2005. I was just as anxious as any mothers who's kids getting any exam results. I would be very happy if he had gotten just 4As because he was having problems with his Bahasa subject. But with the help of his Bahasa teacher and his determination he managed to get what we were hoping for.

Well.....that was almost more than 2 years ago, next year will be double stress for me as he will be sitting for PMR and the younger brother will be facing UPSR.......hmmmmm better start exercise soon and a lot of vitamins for me ha ha ha...

Zai,
I'm in total agreement with you here.
Yan who went to the school yesterday is still recovering from the experience - she did not expect to witness such "pandemonium" by the parents. LOL
