What a relief!!

What a relief, my concerned regarding the age issue of my daughter is over. The memo from Private Institutions Section, Ministry of Education stated that all students studying at YR 1 in 2009 are debarred from being retain another year in 2010.

I received the official memo from SMSS regarding the exclusion for this year student and I was so happy for my daughter.

I would like to say thank you to the school management for their approach to the Ministry of Education officials and it was highly appreciated when they approved the exclusion of this year student from being retain next year.

Is this Fair for the Children?

Some of these smiling faces will be retain in 2010 at Year 1


I received a memo from Seri Mulia Sarjana School inviting me to attend a meeting relating to the ages of students allowable into Year 1. And as the footer of the memo says “THIS MEETING IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND IT WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED IF ALL PARENTS CONCERNED COULD ATTEND THIS MEETING” and yes it’s sure are Extreme when I attend this meeting today at Seri Mulia Sarjana PRESCHOOL.

I was shocked that my daughter who is studying in Year 1 at SMSS will be retain another year just because her age is less than 5 year 9 month as of 31 March 2009. As according to Education Act of Brunei Darussalam, children must be 6 years old on 1st January to be in Year 1. In 2009, students in year 1 must be born between 1st April 2002-31st April 20003, which make my daughter not eligible to be promoted to Year 2 next year.

Wow what a waste of time for my daughter, having to sit another year doing the same old things just because she’s been considered “under age” by the relevant authorities. As an old saying ” Melentur Buluh biarlah dari Rebungnya” that is one of my reason sending her early to school at the age of 3yrs 6 month. For me education has no age limit. The sooner they learn the better. Why have to wait to a certain age if the children could manage to cope up with the curriculum provided by the school. I really don’t foresee any problem in that. The sooner they are in school the younger they will graduate in higher institutions. Is that too much to ask for making it a reality?
