Holidays in August 2019


In the blink of an eye, July came and went and its now August. What can we expect in August? Hari Raya Haji on Sunday 11 August which means Sunday or Monday is a public holiday depending on which state you are. (Dates may vary). National Day Holiday on 31st August 2019. 31st August this year falls on a Saturday. School Holidays start on 9th or 10th August and ends on 17th or 18th August 2019. (again depending on which state you are from) Meanwhile our group is abuzz with parents who just received the results for their school applications for those starting school (standard one) in 2020. Congratulations to those who managed to secure places in the schools of their choice.

Below are the discussion threads and useful links for parents - Std 1 School Application Confirmation or Appeals - Std 1 School Application Documents Required by Schools - Std 1 School Application FAQs (Note that these FAQs are those that were brought up by parents from the year before for your reference)

Other questions parents raised this week include: - What type or brand of digital piano to buy to cultivate interest in learning piano?

- What parents think about the inclusion of Khat writing in the school curriculum?

- What to do about inappropriate touching by special needs child in school?

- Does the new syllabus in Tahap 1 (std 1 - 3) include a lot of projects requiring parents help? Topics for parents with kids sitting for UPSR - What words of encouragement to say to child sitting for UPSR exam - If child does not do well in UPSR, can they resit? Until next week. Happy August!
