Orientation Day

Z giving moral support to jiejie

Before we could clear up our stuffs, we had to get L's uniforms ready for her P1's Orientation. Yes, her Orientation is on the 28th December, unlike most of the schools. Was she excited? Of coz she was! :) We were as excited as she is.

We were to report to school by 8am. My poor boy has no choice but to go with us. Seeing my girl wearing her school uniform and shoes for the first time bring tears to my eyes. And it was tears of joy :) She looked so good with it and she was very proud that she is going to P1. She didn't ask me many questions as I have 'feed' her as much info as I could. :)

I asked my girl how was she feeling and she said she was nervous. I was just like her.... :) But I had to act cool and tell her to stay cool too. When we arrived at the school, we had to queue to find out which class was our girl in. The queue was looooong..... I think the school gave up and asked everyone to go the hall as there were class lists just outside the hall. I managed to find out which class is she in before we make out way to the hall. Once upstairs, I brought her to her class teacher, introduced ourselves and she sat down with her classmates. We were told to sit behind while the kids settle down.... During this time, we heard many crying children. Throughout waiting, my girl was so cool :) She sit there quietly and turned around once a while to check if I were looking at her. Every time our eyes meets, we thumbs up to each other with a smile.

Finally the children were all settled down, teachers were introduced to us and the children were brought to their respective classes, to spend time with their teachers. I was reluctant to see my girl away from me :( Then the briefing for parents begins.... During this time, Z was playing with his gameboy and soon he fell asleep... The talk last for about 1 1/2hr...

We went to our girl's class when the talk ended. We were very happy to know that she has made friends with 2 of her classmates! After looking around her classroom, we went to the canteen to check out the food and followed by a guided tour conducted by the prefects. I realised the school has 6 storeys! Phew! I was glad I wasn't the one going to climb the stairs. Hehehe.... And her classroom was on the ground floor.

By the time it ended, it was already 11+... We are looking forward to her 1st day of school! I have joined the PSG (parent support group) and I have volunteered to help out for the 1st 3 days and the library once a week. I have always tried to be active with her schools since nursery so when the PSG was recruiting, I did not hesitate to join. Hope everything will turn out well for L :) And we yet get her a school bag!

Jan & Fannie
Thank you for the compliment :)
Ya I think so too... She was very excited and I am the one that was nervous.

Really? I think every time she goes to a new phase, I will be very excited and not her. Hehehe.... :)

Talking abt PSG... Hmmm... I can foresee that liao.. Some of the mommies are not friendly at all and have a stuck up look. Perhaps I will blog abt that.
