How many of your kids DID NOT have a 1 week break?

Postby kamom » Tue Apr 02, 2013 12:06 pm

My kids had lots of homework. We only managed to bring them out for a movie on Friday.

I thot MOE has said that schools must allow kids to have their hols. OR did I read wrongly? :scratchhead:

I brought all my children for the Jack the giant slayer show after school and they finished homework by Monday. The rest of the days were all out either spending time together at the zoo.. going up the Singapore Flyer.. time with gramps.. out shopping or at home doing nothing..

It was a chillax-ing week for us. :boogie:

I did not give them extra work to do. They got to do their homework from their tutors.

My elder boy is preparing for a shooting competition, so he goes for practice from Mon to Sat.

My P6 boy went back to school on Mon and Tues morning for oral practice. Not many school assignment. The rest of the week was F&E

Kiddos finished all their homework on Friday afternoon before the 1 week break. The rest of the week was free for them. DD had to go back only on 1 morning for CCA. So they practically had the whole week free.

My sec 3 dd spent all the time rushing her work. She spent 2 full days in sch for forum (end at 6 pm). She has 100 chem questions to complete plus at least 2 assignments from each subject , plus project work, plus a competition research, ALL squeeze into a week. Worst than a normal sch week.

I think it happens to most sec sch than pri students. Most of her classmates still need to go back 2 to 5 times for CCA.

So she would rather NOT have a holiday...

Pls don't give them so much work for a short holiday , let them rest!

May I ask which school is this? 100 chemistry questions is scary.

Hi 'TheAnswer'

I can only tell u it's in Tampines. My child end up having no time to prepare for next term, she felt stressed. She actually plan to revise her A maths but too bad....
