As parents and educators, we need to recognise that we now live in times where paper qualifications alone can no longer guarantee success. And this situation will only become more prominent as we move ahead in this technological age.
Now the question then becomes: What would we need to impart to our children to help them succeed and excel in life?
Is your child entering Primary 1 next year? Are you starting to feel stressed, anxious or worried about how your child will settle into the school environment? Will he/she make friends? Will he/she be able to learn well and enjoy a great start to their learning journey?
Entering Primary 1 can be a very exciting time for a child and the parents but it is also a time of great adjustment and transition. And a well-prepared child will look forward to school and settle in much more smoothly.
How then can parents make sure their child is well-prepared and ready to learn?
