Sleeping beauty & Circus ring


A break from my Inzago…a little update on the kids..

Kylie has been away from school for over a week due to cough and cold. It was not that serious but I didnt want her to go to school to infect others. However, since it was the last day yesterday before the holidays, I sent her to school to collect her homework.

She was so eager to start doing her homework but I insisted that she finish her milk and go for a shower first. After the shower, she quickly took out her books (all in her own accord while I was  facebooking working..). She was doing halfway and then suddenly I looked up and saw this…

She was about to fall of the chair but I wanted to take the pic first…thank goodness she didn’t fall down..

You can see she started writing quite nicely on the first few lines and then you can see she’s falling asleep…

As for Kieran, he did ok for the exams, passed everything. He improved for BM which was quite an achievement. The tuition centre also bucked up after my screaming session. Why did I scream??

His tuition teachers (husband and wife) had to be away for 2 weeks to attend their son’s convocation in London and thus left the tuition class in her daughter’s care. For the first few days he didnt complete his home work. So one day, I went to pick him up instead of Apah. Upon walking up to the house, I could see kids running all over the place, a few boys jumping on the table and of course it was really noisy. I opened the door and shouted..

Me-Is this a circus? Huh??? What is happening here? (my eyes were surveying the whole room and didn’t see any adults supervising the kids)

All the kids scrambled into place and stood straight and didn’t move a muscle and then there was a young girl walking down the stairs.

Me-Are you in charge here? Are you supposed to be taking care of the kids? Why are they behaving like monkeys? This is absolutely shocking! What kind of a tuition class is this? Just because Madam *** is not here, you guys have transformed into a circus!

Girl-So sorry so sorry, I went upstairs for a while.

Me-Even if you walked up for a while, this cannot happen over a few minutes. (the kids were sweaty in an air-conditioned room ok!

Girl-so sorry..I will make sure this does not happen again..

Me-You better be! Kids! Make sure you guys sit down and do your work and not running around tomorrow as I will bring my cane and will personally whack you if I find you running around like today! Do you understand me?

The kids were still standing straight and nodded..

When the tuition teacher got back, I didn’t have an opportunity to complain to her and the she called me one day..

T-I need to threaten Kieran but he will not listen..bla bla bla(her usual complains about Kieran)

During the time she was talking, I could hear the background “music” just like that day when I found the “circus performance”.

Me-Excuse me Mdm ***, why is it SO NOISY? Aren’t the kids supposed to be doing their work now? No wonder I do not see any improvement in Kieran. How can you teach in such an environment? Sounds like a fish market!!

T-Oh no no..Kieran is inside the room, I am outside now..

Me-What? With the noise at this level, don’t tell me the kids inside the room can’t hear? Don’t be ridiculous ok. You better make sure I do not hear such noise next time. If not I will surely take Kieran out from your class.

Too much isn’t it? This tuition teacher really think she can pull a fast one, I know my Kieran is not an obedient student, but it was her job to make sure he obeys and studies. But she can’t even control the kids! All she does is complain and complain about Kieran. I have no choice at the moment as I can’t find another tuition teacher who can pick him up from school and then give tuition until Apah comes to pick him up after work. Sigh..Well she has since managed to control the class and Kieran did improve, and also managed to score 100% for the first time in Chinese spelling. So I will leave it as it is now…
