Student of the Year 2009

Joseph called me in clinic yesterday as soon as he got home from school. He was so excited!

Yup....he did it! He received the Student of the Year 2009 award for Jasmine Class.
I was very pleasantly surprised. I didn't know there was such a thing because the awards day was last Sunday and it only involved the 6-year-olds who were graduating.

Over the phone, I told him I was very proud of him and asked him to wait till I got home to take photos before he opened his present.

I am indeed proud of him. From crying and vomitting on teachers at the beginning of the year, to Student of the Year....he has certainly grown a lot this year.
At the mid-year parent-teacher day in June, Teacher Esther did tell us that Joseph is usually the first to obey her instructions. I was surprised because I have to call him 10 000 times before he does anything at home.
Today is his last day for this year, and it's Party Day! Will post photos later. And tomorrow is the year-end Parent-Teacher Day. We will find out what teacher has to say, and also his 'exam' results!
