Yep, yesterday got R’s nursery ‘results’ and the brat has been passed and promoted to Jr.Kg…
Not that it was like any marks or anything..but just generally they has asked the parents to come and get the report card which had her class photo where the brat is looking somewhere into the space! and her skills described in terms of social interactions, etc etc and some words by the teacher for each of the assessment through the year…
Did I mention this is the first assessment I attended personally? The first one, I was in London, the second one, we were in Ahm and RD went on both occasions…..so this one, I had to go 🙂
Here are few snippets of what the teacher had to say about her
R, when you are 30 and cursing your mother for being a pain for losing your nursery report card, please read this and realise that I took the effort to type out all this just in case I lose the report card…(Errr..chances are high that I lose it 🙂 )
Anyways so this is what the teacher said
Ist Assessment – R has a pleasant personality. She is working to full capacity in all subjects.
IInd Assessment – R exhibits excellent attitude. She is very helpful to her peers
IIIrd Assessment – R has matured nicely this year. She has a good attitude towards school.
There, the brat gets good reviews eh?
Anyways, her skills etc etc are pretty good as per the teacher..and then of course, they showed me her English and Mathematics Paper (She has to write the missing alphabets and the missing numbers and do some counting) It was neat!
Amma, yes yes, I know you are astonished reading this, so was I when I saw it…There was no kaccha mucchha rubbing dirtying..the brat actually KNOWS how to write neatly..though her handwriting resembles that of a Giant Spider trying to catch its prey on the wall while simultaneously doing Salsa on ‘Sita Kalayanam’! …
I asked the teacher ‘Errr…I am R’s Mom’ you know just in case she got confused since I hardly meet them and the brat barely resembles me…
Teacher: yes yes I know
RM: Errr..so this paper?
Teacher: Its hers
RM: This is her paper???? (almost screaming! most astonished)
Teacher smiled and said ‘ it is her paper only, she did everything on her own as well’
RM: errr…okie…*Wondering why the paper is not torn and how come there are not eraser stains all over the place*
so, there, some neatness from the dad’s side is showing up…Gah!
Anyways, then of course I am a teacher’s daughter and I know how important feedback is..so I ask them for a paper for feedback..the teacher starts smiling..I say no I want to give..and then she gives me her diary and I thank both the teacher profusely for whatever they have done for R…like Amma says, a good teacher ensures that the child is ready to go to the class everyday..and in R’s case she was lucky…(Note to self – Start praying that R gets good teachers in the next class as well)
I took her books and her report card and a certificate she got for the second prize in story telling! and rushed to work 🙂
So, the brat is now a Jr. Kg student..heheheeh 🙂 *giggles while typing* (the last laugh is for myself..I cant believe I am a mother of a kid who goes to Jr. Kg..I always thought people whose kids go to Jr. Kg are so old…imagine I am one myself now!!)
And in other news, RD is leaving me and going 😦
He will be in Bangalore for the Bangalore Marathon …after his run in Mumbai, he seems to be pretty confident this time of finishing and has decided to run for a cause…so he is running for Nanhi Kali – an NGO for girl’s education..
So if anyone of you have some money to spare, could you please go to this link and donate as much amount as you want..Rs.10, Rs.50, Rs.500 whatever…I have also added a widget on the main blog page in the side *Looks proud at this accomplishment* You can click on that and go to the donation page as well
