How to spend the p6 year end holidays

Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

Find a hobby, learn a craft, learn an instrument.
Volunteer for a community service project.
Read a lot.
Watch a series of videos as a family activity, something long like Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter etc. Read the books as well.
Get some board games (the strategy type for older kids and adults, not snakes and ladders!).
Plan for Christmas - presents, cards, parties etc. - and execute the plans.

My problem at the moment is that my kids (already in sec school) are too busy and we have to wait another couple of weeks for things to be over before we will have time to do any of those things!

Plan a short trip (doesnt have to be overseas) for the family! I know my kids for sure want a break from the books. I don't bug them to read or study, but i do encourage them to take up an activity which they enjoy. Its good to have a balance, and we parents need a break too

Revival of an old thread?

P6 holidays should be spent preparing for O Level. Only 4 or 5 more years to go!
