Err buddies...Orchi has 2 children who sat for this year's UPSR exam.
They have both gotten the result back home...

Orchi asked..."how many A's...":D

One of them scored 5 A's at a Kebangsaan school...
The other scored 5 A's + 2 B's at a SJK(c) school...

Bet the other parents whom may have children who sat for the UPSR...
would be asking..."how many A's..." :D

well, to me is not how many A's is important but the most important is how much "values" can the child have and kept with them till they grow old. Teenagers nowadays are losing their most important "values" and it's at alarming stage. :( very very sad

As with BOTH the little Orchis...that had sat for UPSR this year...they got A for Maths...
which could mean they would know exactly how to count their daily pocket money... :D

One of them is 1st Poom(TKD)...going on to 2nd Poom soon.
Both of them play Badminton...albeit at this stage...not as good as their Old man...

But one of these days...they might kick the sh**t out of Orchi...for short changing them for their pocket money... :D

Oh btw...in their UPSR result sheets...there is this..."PEKA 1" stated in it...
what does "PEKA" mean...??? :confused:

Reward? Orchi has been telling them to count their blessings ...
So they should be able to figure it out by now... :D

Wifey might reward them though...behind Orchi's back. :p

Congralutions Orchi you must be a proud father..well done!Err thanks buddy Firefox...yes Orchi is proud when they behave themselves in school...do their home works...
there is no complaints from their teachers...n for as long as they don't fail any exams at school...

ABC don't matter as much anymore...coz Orchi feels there are more important
things in life later on that they should excel in...rather than just scoring straight A's.

They can if they could...but if they can't...so be it.

Maybe scoring full A's nowaday is very common (I heard that over 40,000 of them got it) and it is really mean nothing.....BUT it is still something to be proud of, for the kid and the parent. Congratulation!

PEKA is the science practical.

Err buddy Uma...thanks so much...

Hmmm...how come the result for "PEKA" is shown as numeric grade
instead of following the same alphabetic grading format...?

It's kinda odd...

Yeah ! Really weird. I would send both of them to SJKC. Better communication in the future.

Past or future...the Cantonese/Hakka/Hokkien n other relevant dialects are NOT taught in ANY schools...
yet millions of people use the respective dialects to communicate...rather well. :D

Heck many more don't even have formal education...many never did...yet they communicated well with others...

For instance...how did you managed to communicate with your parents...before
you were old enough to attend school...? :D

I am still wondering what Orchi is getting at, starting this thread and insisting on the discussion to be the number of A's and B's

Congrats to your kids and you&wifey too. I know how you take good care of the kids and give them as much time as you possibly can, no matter what time you hv to rush home or to the school. Great job!
If you dont want to reward them.. at least go for some nice fml outing that is out of the usual thingy lah. Will be something for them to remember by when they grow up.

Please note when you learn the chinese language in school, it is essentially learning all the dialects because the grammar and most of the words are the same ONLY the sound is slightly different.

It's easier to learn other dialects once you have a strong foundation in the chinese language.

I had difficulty in communicating with my parents and others because they didn't send me to sjkc in the past.

firstly, must congrats your kids and you & wifey for the job well done...

I think pucman is just curious, as I am, about why didnt you send both kids to the same stream (either SRJK or SRJK (C)) together ? It's my opinion that siblings that are exposed to the same school/teachings will likely to have similar idealogy and able to communicate more effectively...

I hv 2 girls, one of which has started pre-school..my hubby and I will ensure that both get same education system and go to similar schools so they hv same idealogy and can communicate better.

My sis and I went to different schools ie one to SRJK and me to SRJK (C), as it turns out, my sis always have issues with ppl that are chinese educated (albeit just primary level) - as she claimed "mindset is diffr" but as to what excatly it is diff or how would this so-called "differences" make me less exposed/intelligent/successful to others - she couldnt tell...

How can we build a country one one can't even understand one family.. hmm I think
this blog post (http://deminegara.blogspot.com/2008/11/racial-polarisation-and-forging-of.html) has some merit.

There is a prevalent misconception that those who are chinese educated are poor in the english language etc.

This understanding was true BEFORE Malaysia converted the English medium into Malay medium schools in the 1970s.

Nowadays, when local university graduates can't even write or speak proper English sentences, who are we to question which medium produces better students in the English language ?

With the emerging superpower status of China, the chinese language has been increasingly learned as a second language by americans, australians etc. Kevin Rudd (PM of australia) is another example.

Congrate orchipalar!

Asking how many As may not be a bad thing! To my daugther, asking means concern. In my case, I didn't have to ask as she was one of those called on stage to receive her result. Anyway, she is the type when she get good result she will express her happiness, like recently when she got her Music Theory result, she was laughing and "Ha ha ha, I got distiction!" the moment she saw me. She is not all that arrogant person, when she received the outstanding prize for caligraphy contest 2 days ago, she said, "Wah, nowadays I am really lucky!"

As to Wong Chun Wai's opinion, I think in Chinese schools, be it primary or secondary, the As are result of knowledge and hardwork. Comparing what I learnt and know during primary school with my daughter's, I only learnt half she studied in Chinese language, for BM she learnt 300% more, English vocab 10 times more than me, Science probably 3 times more. So, she and many of her friends' result are reflection of their knowledge.

As for SK school, I don't know what A represent, but if I were to judge base on the BM paper, it is really not surprising to have so many As. While waiting for her daughter's result one Malay parent told me, "everyone(she knows) in SK school are getting straight A, tensionlah!" , luckily her daughter got 6As and 1B. But I felt sorry for her and other Malay parents who sent their children to Chinese school; first their children have to endure a tougher school life and deal with a foreign language, then, the government does not allow them into boarding school no matter how good their result is. I felt sad that the government is so unfair to them, sort of penalised them for being open minded.
