SJKC Yuk Chai Standard 1 Orientation

January 2, 2009 at 9:16 am 1 comment

We bought John to his Standard 1 orientation at Yuk Chai today. John was sleepy as usual. The school hall was hot and humid. It was expected since the hall is not air-conditioned. So remember to bring some water if you need to accompany your kid the next time.

A teacher started the orientation by explaining the rules and the layout of the school compound. Then the school principal took over. I believe 2009 is Yuk Chai’s 70 years anniversary and they are planning to build a new school hall to replace the existing hall which is becoming too small.

A gentleman from the PIBG was the final speaker for the morning. He actually translated his speech which I am sure was helpful to some parents. The first two speakers spoke entirely in Mandarin.

Finally, the parents were allowed to go to their children classrooms. John is in Std 1K. There are 44 other students in his class. John has two of his kindy friends in the same class. So it should be easier for him to fit in. We were given more forms to fill and submit them on Monday. We also paid the school fees of RM 150.00. Later, we went to the canteen. We got John to start practising buying his own food and drink. A bowl of noodle is RM 2 plus a cup of drink is RM 0.60. So the minimum allowance for Std 1 is at least RM 3 nowadays. You can also cater food for your kids with the canteen operator.

This marks the end of John’s orientation today. And I can’t believe I am a dad to a Std 1 year old kid. The challenging journey would commence on Monday.
