Report Card Day

There is actually a report card day in John’s school. Parents are invited to collect their kids report card from their class teachers directly. The school has allocated half a school day just for this function. Suzanne can’t make it. So I went on my own wondering how I was going to communicate with John’s class teacher. Do national schools have report card day? My memory sucks but I don’t remember such.

Anyway I was amazed to see the number of parents queuing outside the classrooms. This must be a big deal in chinese education. John’s class teacher had to attend a course. So she wasn’t around. I collected John and went home.

John scored an average of 89.4% in his second semester exams. He had all A’s except for B for 2 subjects. To my surprise, his position was only 26 out of 40 students in his class. His position in the entire form was 400+ out of 600+ students. Wow. Talk about high standards.  I am guessing the top students must be scoring 100% across all the subjects. Now I know why chinese education is valued so highly. So parents who are not from chinese educated background, kindly prepare yourselves for this culture shock.
