Yes, the exams are over and the school holidays are fast approaching.
It is true that your child could use a little "down time" to rest and relax ... but the holidays also represent a good time to CORRECT some of the mistakes of 2014.
There's a common saying - "Things change only if you do" and unless your child fixes the errors in thinking and preparation, it's inevitable that these will appear again next year and wreck havoc again.
Also, it's important to get to the heart of the issue affecting your child. Trying to paper over the cracks by sending them to "more tuition" doesn't work, because it doesn't address the REAL problem.
Often, kids don't lack intelligence and they don't need another class teaching them how to solve math or science problems. What they really need is a REASON WHY to put in the effort and do well in school.
After the hard work of mugging for exams, the year-end holidays is a good time to think about teaching your child about doing heart-work.

BASF is the world’s leading chemical company and has been operating in Singapore since 1978.
About BASF Kids’ Lab
In 1997, BASF set up its first Kids’ Lab in Ludwigshafen, Germany. To this day, Kids’ Lab has been launched in 33 countries. Since its inception, more than 200,000 have attended workshops/events organised by Kids’ Lab.
In 2003, Kids’ Lab was set up in Singapore. It is expected that more than 1,000 children aged 6 to twelve would be attending this year’s Kids’ Lab workshops. Interactive experiments were conducted so that children could learn first hand, about science.
The partners who work with BASF to make this happen
Playeum, or The Play Museum, worked together with National Library Board to organise Kids’ Lab for 2014. For a span of almost 2 weeks, with 4 workshops running back to back, more than 1,000 kids had the opportunity to get in touch with chemistry. The public runs spanned from 31 May to 7 June.
