Back to School Updates

School reopening was delayed for CBSE schools and soon after that we went back to holiday mood in Chennai owing to the Tamizh Maanadu. Just when the school routine was setting in, there's the bandh today! Here are some school updates...

1st day of school: We heard that Pattu insisted on sitting in her previous teacher's class (previous teacher has been promoted to class I). She walked out of her class and sat in Class I saying, "This is my teacher, I'll sit here only". And a few others followed her. It took a few teachers, ayahs and other staff a good one hour to get her to accept her new teacher, it looks like.

Reality Strikes: It has been three weeks now and we are already getting home work! I avoided my homework very well, but looks like I can't do that with Pattu's.

Go Pattu :) The teacher must hv been so happy :)

Home work ??!! Maybe you can teach Pattu how to ditch home work - unfair to have to do HW at this age !

How you doing otherwise ? Not many posts for a while

Uma said...

Asha - Don't scare me... I don't even want to think of it!

Hema - Right.. the stakes are higher with Pattu's homework

Swaram - True, but wonder how the new teacher felt

PV - I don't have to teach Pattu that - I'm sure she'll master that art - it's in the genes ;)
I'm ok...just been a bit tied up .. Thanks for asking :)
So, now we'll get some non football posts eh ;)
