First nak ucap Selamat Hari Malaysia to all Malaysians tak kira di mana jua anda berada.
Second, nak ucap thank you for all the get well wishes and doas. I am feeling slightly better than semalam but still not 100% better.
The Other Half is ok now but Miss 7 pulak makin teruk with her coughing. I guess it’s because of all the mucus that trickles from her nose onto the back of her throat which tickles her throat and makes her cough.
Poor her, bila dah batuk batuk, surenya muntah lepas tu. Kurus lah dia lepas ni kan, hahahaha….
But dalam semua tak sihat ni, our day today was made bright by what Miss 7 brought home!
Remember how nervous I was when she sat for NAPLAN for the first time and how she wanted a present as soon as she finished her tests. And I told her that she had to wait for the results to get one.
Se, she brought home her NAPLAN results today, finally!
4 bulan getar menunggu results kamu, hikhikhik.
Bila you duduk in a country yang takde exams every month nor every year so bila ada tests/ exams macam ni, barulah boleh you judge how well or how bad your kid is doing at school kan compared with her peers.
Setiap kali pergi parents teachers meeting, they will just tell you that your kids are doing well at school and not to worry too much. They can’t tell you how well your kids are doing because they don’t have tests at school.
Kiranya NAPLAN ni ajelah yang sort of tests our kids abilities academically.
I’m going to put up the results here, bukan untuk membangga or menunjuk but untuk explain to people yang tak pernah tau system NAPLAN ni macam mana. Masa first time Miss 12 sat for NAPLAN, memang we all tak tau apa yang dia nak and what were they testing for.
I tau ada a few bloggers yang duduk OZ and ada anak at schools yang baca blog I ni so bolehlah you all tengok what NAPLAN is.
This is basically what they test for in each paper. Instead of dapat percentage, they use the ‘band’ system.
On the paper that your child takes home, it will show the child’s results (how well your child is doing judging on the band she/he’s in). It will also show the National’s average for that year and also the student’s school’s average for that year.
Kira macam SPM dapat A1, A2, C and so on lah. We don’t know what questions they did wrong nor what their percentage is for each paper.
This are Miss 7’s results.
Miss 7 is so extremely pleased with herself for doing so well in the tests. We are extremely proud of her as well.
The Other Half whispered to me, “I told you she’s clever and you didn’t believe me!”
Bukan I tak percaya tapi bila takde tests and what not and she is always doing silly things and asking silly questions at home, sometimes you wonder jugak lah kan, hikhikhik….
Now, baru lah boleh dia demand presents from us kan! Hahahahaha….
