Day 167: A New School Year

After nearly 3 months of summer vacation, Jarred is back in school and ready to face the challenges as a Grade I student. He's bound to discover many changes in this new school year. For one, short pants are no longer part of his regular uniform as he's required to wear long pants already. Secondly, his daily school schedule has shifted from half to whole day. He has to wake up early in the morning and prepare for a full day which starts at 7:30 am and ends at 5:00 pm. Another big change is the introduction of a couple of new subjects like Computer and Sibika. When he was in preschool, he only had two teachers, one who taught subjects under the English Department and another who taught the subjects in Chinese. This time around, he's going to have a different teacher coming into the classroom for each of his subjects.

On this first day, it was noticeable that a few of his former classmates weren't around as they've transferred to other schools but there were about 5 new students in class that Jarred easily befriended.

I'm sure he's looking forward to another year of learning, challenges and fun at BFCS.
