Next year would be the first year QQ attends school; she will be in Year 4 class. Of course she attends the same school as HQ. The school takes an extra effort to fit the kids in by having 2-hour orientation daily for a week, starting today. Not only for new kids, but kids of all ages, 3 to 6! I guess the school wanted to make sure there will be no tears when school really starts next week.
So, here's QQ all geared to go! :-D.
And HQ will be joining Year 6 class next year. Next year will be the last year HQ attends kindy, before he starts Primary One in year 2012. He insisted on wearing his new Ben 10 sunnies for the pic :-). When HQ started school for the Year 3 class in year 2007, I just left him at the school gate and went off to work. Popo fetched him back when school ended at 12 noon. No tears :-). Same as QQ, I left her at the school gate today, and Popo will be fetching HQ and QQ back when school ends.
HQ was happy to see his friends again. And QQ ran in to join him. I heard QQ waving and saying "hello" to other kids. When I wanted to leave, I called out to her. She turned and waved bye bye at me, sporting a happy grin.
I'm sure my little girl is going to love school, just like her Korkor :-D.
