First day of school for 2010 but Fathini's not going to school.......

Salam to all,


Today is the first day of school after a long summer break here in NZ. Fathini who has turned 5 last month is supposed to attend a Primary school because that's what most parents here do. At the age of 5, the children will be placed in the Year 0. It's not compulsory to send our kids by the age of 5 but that's what most parents do here. NZ Ministry of Education stated that the compulsory age is 6 years old.


Why we decided not to send Fathini to a primary school? Is it because we are denying her right to receive formal education? Or I'm don't want to let Fathini go? Those aren't the reasons. Do you want to know the actual reasons?


Right. Let me justify our decision. Here are the reasons for not sending Fathini to a primary school here:
  • we're going to be here only for another 3 months or so.
  • it's too disruptive to her if she's going to a new school and get new friends and then she has to leave the school.
  • we'll send to her to a pre-school centre in Malaysia for 2 years and she's going to receive fromal education too once she attend the pre-school. (tadika, tabika atau apa2 yg seumpamanya)
  • she already have some good friends in Peachgrove playcentre. I want her to spend more time with her good friends before we going back for good.
  • ermm that's all. You thought there's more reason? hehe
Somehow I can't help myself to think are we making a right decision? Is she's going to miss the experiences in the primary education here? If you're in my shoe, what would you do? We're doing what we think best for her. We've explained many times to her and she seems okay. She can't wait to go back to Malaysia and learn at a new school.


You need to know that the education here is quite simple. Their system is totally different from us. The children go to school to learn and enjoy themselves. The focus is not so much on the academic achievements but more on the overall achievements. baik saya berhenti membebel pasal ni sbb tak patut nak banding2kan sistem pendidikan However, I reckon each education system has the pro and cons. Plus Malaysians are so used to our own education system that we've adapted ourselves to it. Right?


In better stop my ramblings here as I know that not all can endure a long....................................
entry. hehe. Until next time, Ka Ki Te Ano.

kadang2 perlu jugak kak banding2kan. nadiah pun sebenarnya tak berapa berkenan dengan sistem pendidikan kat malaysia :p. takde la, kecik2 lagi dah dibebankan dengan kerja sekolah, kalau tak siap, cikgu marah & kena denda. tu sebabnya budak2 tak suka gi sekolah. kalau kita tengok sistem pendidikan tempat lain (jepun ke, US ke..mana2 je la), mana ada sangat kerja2 sekolah ni. enjoy je budak2 gi sekolah tapi bila besar semua berjaya. mungkin kerajaan patut kaji balik sistem pendidikan yang sedia ada tu (ewah..pandai pulak bagi cadangan..hihi..)

ada dah cadangan utk mengkaji balik sistem pendidikan kita. sebenarnya pd thn 2008, kami menerima kunjungan dr guru2 besar dr Msia yg membuat lawatan ke sekolah2 di sini. Mereka dtg utk mendpt idea bg sekolah2 kluster. minta2 adalah perubahan yg elok nanti.
