I don't know why but Raimie's Standard 3 class teacher kept on mentioning that another classmate had got the "Best in Maths" award last year for the year-end exam but the Maths teacher and all his other classmates knew it was Raimie. This reminded me of how incredulous my Standard 4 class teacher was when I somehow managed to bag one of the top three spot for the year-end exam.
Teachers, don't do that to your students. Don't act all surprised or not trusting when your other students do good or do better than your favourite/pet student. It hurts their pride, you know. Especially for a student who consistently perform in class.
Anyway, the error was finally pointed out to the class teacher (albeit at last minute, with the trophies and "Hari Anugerah Kecermelangan" a.k.a excellence day prize giving program (or something) all printed out; they weren't able to rectify the name on the trophy that's rightly Raimie's. And in the event-day program booklet - the wrong name was blanco'ed out and were handwritten with my son's name.
The trophy was returned to the teacher in charge afterwards and Raimie finally got his trophy back yesterday, 3 months after the prize giving day.
And the point of this post? No point actually.
Well, I just wanted to say how proud I am of my son. He was happy to get back the trophy and with his own name printed on it. Well, and maybe gloat a bit about him here. This is MY blog after all. xD
