More competitions!

As mentioned in my earlier post, most of my time lately has been attending to Anastassia with her back-to-back competitions.

However, let me first share the kids March exam results.

Mia has improved tremendously in this exam. This year Mia became closer to a studious Perak girl, and this has made my Mia more studious too. And it confirms my beliefs that it is important to have the "right" friends for our children. Moreover she has passed the 'adjusting and blending" in college. She is a different Mia this year, more mature, more focussed to her academic abilities.

"Congratulations Mia, you have more "A"s than before. You have definitely improved" I said, patting her back.

"No Mama, I'm not satisfied. I am still weak in Maths and Sejarah" Mia menggeleng kepala, sulking.

"Tak apala, at least ada improvement. Your target tu tinggi sangat dulu. Now with your results, okayla for you to aim 9As in your next exam." I said.

"mmm..... gerammmmmla, Mama....." Mia mengetap gigi, still tak puas hati.


Anastassia had fever during exam, I was called to pick her at 10 am on the 2nd and 3rd day. I did not expect much from her. However, she managed to get highest in Penulisan...... which is unbelievable. I guess it has something to do with the nonstop coaching she got for her Bahas, Syarahan and Pidato competition... hehe..... As i told the teacher who coached her (BM teacher), Anastassia dapat tuition BM free.....

Puteri........ mmm...... I sort of neglected her during the exams, as I had to concerntrate on Zaryff and Anastassia who was not well. But then.... what can I say, she got no1 and became the best student for std 3 again this time round...... (During exam, memang dia belajar sendiri..... she still continued to study even when I asked her to rest)

Zaryff...... alamak, his results dropped slightly....... I vow to really mengadap dia for his May exam..... *sigh*



Last Wednesday, I accompanied Anastassia and her teacher for her Pidato DiRaja Competition. Wow...... tercengang jugak Mia tengok. Pidato ni terbahagi kepada 2. The first part is the normal pidato which the students prepared earlier. However the 2nd part is the Pidato Spontan. The student kene berdiri atas stage, was given a topic and was given a minute sebelum mereka start berpidato. Memang susah. Anastassia got the topic "Ibubapa memainkan peranan penting dalam memupuk perpaduan kaum di kalangan anak2".

Out of the 12 patricipants, only 3 of them, Anastassia included managed to give a full 3 minute pidato. The rest could only stand up the stage waiting for the bell to ring before saying "Sekian, Terimakasih". Kesian. Yela, berdiri aje atas stage tu terkebil-kebil tak tau nak cakap apa. Tapi its a good exposure for students, and from there memang nampakla Anastassia tak gugup langsung and tak ada masalah bercakap dihadapan orang ramai. And memangla tak sia2 cikgu BM dia preparekan Anastassia on this, masa school holidays hari tu. Must be good in General Knowledge.

It seems dalam Public Speaking pun ada macam ni.

After Pidato, I rushed her to the other part of town for her Choral Speaking Competion. Lega the teachers bila tengok Anastassia sampai. Apa taknya, she is one of the main speakers! hehe. She arrived just in time.

During ther performance, memang nampak dia all out. Her teacher puji dia kat Helena. Later when I told Anastassia that she was superb, she said "Kita menangis masa tu, Mama. I really got into the character". (Anastassia jadi Mak Si Tanggang, who was frustrated with her son yang tak sedar diri)


So now, more rehearsals and practise for the next round........

i don't know that some school (including Puteri's school) ada ujian pertengahan penggal? My kids' schoold only got pertengahan tahun & akhir tahun when the school actually tabulate the best student. Yang lain2, they call it ujian bulanan (3 x in a year apart from the pertengahan tahun & akhir tahun exam). Their Ujian Bulanan satu was before the school break last 2 weeks.

Helena said...

dear supercalif with a long name......

hey thx for dropping by. In Pu3's school there are 4 exams - March exam, mid year, Aug exam, Final year.

Mula2 only in midyear and final year exam will the teacher kasi numbering. Tapi the students dok bug the teacher for their numbering in class and aliran for March and Aug. If cikgu ada masa, dia layanla. If cikgu takda masa the students akan buat sendiri.

Now i guess the school decided, might as well buat numbering for every exam....

Furthermore, streaming for classes take into account ALL the four exams tu.....

Having said that, teachers memang look forward to know siapa yg dapat the highest result/best student.... so immaterial they tabulate or not, they will still check it out. Esp bila belum start streaming, bec class teachers dok lumba2 nak anak murid dia jadi best student.....

itu yang helena tau la....

hope to see u again here....

Keep up the excellent work - Helena juniors and Helena alike ;)

MAMAMIA said...

Well done Anastassia. Nanti bila masuk National Level (when is that?) bolehlah Aunty tengok kat TV...

Helena, u deserve a pat on the back too!!

maklang said...

bertuah punya anak2 yang rajin2...

Helena said...

kak lady, thx. Mia and Pu3, memang own initiative. Tapi Anastassia and Zaryff kena ngadap. Tapi lately Anastassia pun dah start ada kesedaran sendiri, tapi tak cukup lagi...

kak lady, darjah 1 tu critical jugak.... sebab pada helena mesti ada strong basics.

However, I am guilty tak mengadap Zaryff the way i ngadap his sisters. Dah penat pun yer, I'm tied up pun yer....

Helena said...

thx wan shana.....FYI Helena dah tak kiasu macam dulu.... dah penat la.... *sigh*

I NEED A VACATION! hehe

Helena said...

mamamia, eh boleh masuk tv ke.... mana ada... for secondary school ada kut. But not primary school.

eh entah.... helena tak tau la.

Helena said...

maklang.... kena ngadap maklang..... itupun helena dah ngelat2 nak ngadap they all. Planning nak ngadap Zaryff ni, dia ni playful sikit. His sisters selalu kata that I'm not being tough with him....

helena,
I read this on Harian Metro today.. so scary

mom-of-three said...

oppsss.. maybe x dapat link.. tp it's about sufiah yusuf, the genius girl who got to Oxford at the age of 13...

Helena said...

dear mom of 3,

yes its really a shocker. A friend sent me the link to News of the World, the paper that published the story, OMG there are naked pictures supposedly to be her.

The story also revealed a bit more about her past, i'm just dumbfounded. The things that she had to go through.

I feel for the mom, she must be very broken hearted for what had happened to both her husband and sufiah.

Sigh..... sayang sangat.....

mom-of-three said...

mac,
yup, it was a real shocker... Risau I, I relate the story to my hubby, dia kata, yalah, budak2 x leh push sgt, let them enjoy their childhood but we, as parents kenalah monitor.. discipline lah jugak, x kanle masa exam week nak kasi main PS2... tp I kasi gak diaorang g main ngan our neighbours' kids after revision masa exam week ; ).
Sian mak dia.. what happen to her, ek? X balik M'sia ke?
