Yes, the end of term one and the start of a one-week break.
But, what break? A busy, busy week ahead despite the "break".
We have a dental operation on Monday for S (she has to remove 6 teeth),
Make-up mandarin class on Tuesday for both S & N
Interschools chess tournament on Wednesday for S
Enrichment class for both S&N on Thursday (as usual)
Interschools Chess Tournament for N on Friday.
Not counting the homework the school has dished out to the children to be done during the break, portfolios and projects which are due just after the break.
Seems pretty back breaking for me.
Sometimes I wonder why the school call it a term break when the kids still have so much work to do during that time. Cant they just have some time: To stand and stare? To smell the roses? To laze about and be kids? To do nothing?
Looks like the only one that can have a break is little D - but her school is a child-care, so it continues as usual. AND I am so tempted to just send her.
