Mummy is writing this special letter to share with you my thoughts on your journey and completion as a Primary One student. I can imagine how tough it was for you to transit from a kindergartener to a formal school, the stress that you may need to go through in a change of environment of familiarity to something new (school, teacher, friends, routine, school work) and of course having to wake up early at 6.20am.
You did extremely well in your academic for Term 1 & Term 2 which was awesome. In every journey we take, there will be ups and downs; yup, you dip in your grades in Term 3 but somehow you seem to realize and tried to bounce back in Term 4. We are proud of the resilience spirit you demonstrated and how proud you were when you were awarded the badge in school.
Mummy wants you to know that behind the constant “nagging and harping” is our heart’s desire to want you to always give your 100% in everything that you do; doing things with a spirit of excellence and a never say die attitude. This is above an beyond the grades that we want you to catch in your spirit. Daddy will say “Ya, grades are important but it’s not everything. The character molding and building, the values you have in your life is more important than grades”. And I can sense him trying to chill me down when I see you not trying your best. In that sense, Mummy tends to be more “kan cheong” than Daddy.
You and I have some “hair-tearing, tear dropping” moments as both of us learn together in adjusting to this new milestone of our lives. But hey babe, we survived and soon, you will be promoted to Primary 2.
I have absolute confidence in you and I know you will always try your best as you mature. Whatever it is, please know that we love you very much and have faith in you. We pray that as you continue this journey, we pray for wisdom to be upon you as you study hard, play hard and learn to serve your friends and teachers, living out the values of a Fairsians.
Leaving a picture of your class this year, which just seems like yesterday…
