Sigh, why can't they start school on a brand new Monday instead?

I like school to start on friday .
Let the kids go to school for the first day, then be relieved that weekend is just next day. Then they get to relaxed before lesson proper starts on monday.

Why so inflexible? Start following Monday lah.
Especially for those starting p1...after separation anxiety on first day of school then a weekend and all from scratch come Monday.

No...don't get me wrong...we all like long weekends.
Just that if 2nd jan falls on Friday, then let kids enjoy 1-2 days more and start school following Monday.

I think the best day to start school is a Thursday. Let the kids have a couple of days to settle down, get to know the teachers and each other, warm up the engines, then have a short break before serious work begins. Starting on Monday means a long week ahead before the engines have warmed up.

Good idea...starting on Wednesday or Thursday...settle some admin stuff like forms and then what books to leave with the teacher and hopefully by Monday the kids can bring lighter bags. I remember several forms to sign beginning of the year for edusave and updating parents' particulars.
