This cake was baked for me to bring to dear daughter's school for the principle and teachers during the Parent-Teacher day.
I was requested to see the chinese teacher, which was not required for last year since her progress was good then. I was a little worried, thinking is it because of the chinese spelling that she has not been scoring good since end March after my ex-maid has gone home for good. Actually she was a little out of control ever since the departure of my ex-maid, be it home work, spelling, temper, behaviour etc. Surprising she is behaving very well in school, she is well-liked by all her teachers and principle especially her speech n drama teacher which called her is the gem of hers.
The reason of chinese teacher wanted to see me was to inform me about the situation of her late submission of home work, other than that she is doing very well, she is star student according to the teacher. I ensured to the teacher that I was awared of this situation and has been addressing to it and dear daughter has been getting better now.
Another news which was shocking to know was her teacher told me dear daughter used a pencil to poke one of the girl classmate's hand, she and another boy classmate poked one at each hand. The poor girl, kena attacked by 2 monsters at the same time for both hands. I was a little upset with the teacher that didn't inform me when this incident occurred which was happened a few weeks ago. According to the teacher, she slipped off her mind due to too busy and the poking was not serious. On top of that, my dear daughter is always very well-behaved in school except for that incident and moreover, that poor girl's parents understood and didn't puruse the matter. But this is not the case, I still owe the parents a apology for my dear daughter violet act and I also need to keep educating her not to do it again. Haiz... so upset with dear daughter and gave her a big scolding and councelling.
