Building their 'class nest"

Another back dated post. *sigh*

My boys already in their big school for a month plus, so far so good, they love their new school and they are looking forward to school everyday, not that they love to study, but they got a lot new friends to play with and they got tons of fun at school too!! *worried* Well, that will be in another post.

On the first week of school, we selected the parent class rep, and for the first few weeks we are quite busy, beside than busy with the kids on the new environment, new school and new friends, we parent also have to get to know each other well, exchange e mail, phone numbers, know their kids and not forget we also get together to do the decoration at our kid's new "class nest" on the weekend.

To my surprise, this school, like i mention here, they want we parent to involve in all the acitivity in school, one of it, we have to decorate the class ourself. The previous year students, they moved all their things away to their new classroom and for new standard one class , it will be totally empty except for the tables and chairs.


On the first week weekend, all of us went to school for the "big task". I am glad that, most parent are really sporting, they give in their idea, volunteer to bring things to decorate and cleaning tools and detergent to wipe tables and chairs and windows.



look at the parents, some are doing drawing, some are cleaning, some are wipping...
at the back it is totally emtpy and we have to put up the reading card board.



everyone working hard, except me clicking here and there. LOL!



ok, must show that i am working hard too!! LOL!
Sorry i have to blur out the parent's face without getting permission from them to post it here.


the new cabinets for all the acitivities book & execise books and the new decorate board with all the reading posters.




this is the reading corner. Yes, we even get the tables and chairs from ikea!!



new curtain for the class, oh yes, we get someone to come and tailor made it. Cool ya?



more deco and make it look more fun and interesting place to study.


the notice board near the class entrance, draw and decorate by one of the mummy, i salute her art talent. I admit i cannot do such nice art work.


Each class has their own class theme, we all agree we want to have "space" theme. One of the mummy did this very nice Rocket on the class entrance door! Pending is the children's photo in an astronauts helmet and we will paste it on the rocket and we are trying to look for some 3D planets stickers to stick it on the wall too.






Tada, this is the highlight of the class, the cute rocket!


This is just some update on my boys's new big school.

yikes!!! School certainly changed a lot since my time. During my schooling era, we the student would have do all the work. The last day of school we have to bring sand paper and sand the tables and chairs. Clean up the class room for the next year students. The next year, the student would have to make and decorate their own class.

I'm impressed with the school having so much parents' involvement. At my son's school, I find it very hard even to go in and have a chat with the class teacher :-(

The class is really nice! And so good for the school to engage & bring the parents together. My son's school, none of that. Are they in SK or Chinese school? The tables/ chairs all looked so new. My son's one..aiyo..all not standardized one and broken broken...

Ann said...

Wah....they really get the parents invovled with their kids school. Free labour? But I see most parents don't mind also.

But agree...last time we kids have to do everything and not parents.

i think the mix of students and family background is very important for a gotong royong to work. My daughter's class... half of them foreigners and always late for school. I stay for at least 10 minutes every morning in school and I don't see the kids arriving yet. Kek sei !
