It Took 3 Months

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

    1. That's why. In the maths class, it was already announced by the maths teacher that Raimie got the top marks yet the class teacher keep on mentioning another boy's name.

      They gave back the trophy just in time for the PIBG meeting which was held today! Don't want parents to go "attack" teachers maybe. xD

    1. I guess one of the teacher must've put it aside and forgot all about it. We did ask our Son to remind the teacher but I guess he procrastinate long enough and finally got it done before PIBG AGM.

      And thanks! :)

  7. So he's good at languages and maths? The obachan in Tokyo is very proud of him. Congratulations! ^^

    PS: Is the class teacher generally speaking an OK teacher? Strange incident.

    1. He actually sucks at Malay. English is OK, but if I compare to my own "standard" when I was his age - it's not good enough. heh heh

      Arabic - now that strangely he is quite good at, and which I pretty much suck at all through school. I can't even check his Arabic homework, he doesn't trust me enough. ;p

      Science and maths are his strong subjects.

      The teacher - we always have a wee bit of issues with her, from Raimie was in Standard One and we know who her favourite student is. Good thing she's no longer his class teacher or teaches key subjects at school.
