TIPS FOR FIRST  TIME SCHOOLING OF CHILDREN

(as featured in GMA 7?s Unang Hirit)

by Mrs. Jane Ong

Last June 1, 2007 at around 6:04 am,  GMA 7?s ?Unang Hirit? hosted by Arnold Clavio, Rheas Santos and Lyn Ching-Pascual featured an interesting segment for parents entitled ?Tips for first time schooling of children.?:  For this segment,  ?Unang Hirit?  visited Mother Goose Nursery School and interviewed our very own school directress,  Mrs. Josephine C. Yao. 

Finding the right school,  with considerations on the tuition fee,  traveling time,  physical and emotional readiness of children 2-5 years old in their first school,  is indeed an experience and a challenge every parent go through.  Here are some tips for parents:

   1)     Check the credibility of the school because it is a second home for the children.                 They have to be safe in that school.

2)     Get to know the teachers and classmates of the child in that school.  They are the ones who interact with the child everyday.

3)     Accompany the child to the school before class opening.  Let the child get accustomed and feel comfortable with the new environment.  As Mrs. Yao states,  ?Parents can prepare (the child) by telling (him/her) this is a second home for you,  mommy and daddy will leave you on this particular day and you will be happy (here) because the teachers are you your mommies. . . .?

4)     Explain to the child early on the importance of education.

5)     There is no age criterion on when a child can go to school.  It is up to each parent?s knowledge and intuition regarding their own child?s readiness to enter his/her first school.

6)     Never force a child who is not ready to enter their first school.  ?Children should be happy,  that is the most important thing.  If they are not happy,  they won?t work well . . .,?  advises Mrs. Yao.

7)     Give enough time,  attention and support to your child?s needs and wants.  This will serve as an inspiration for them to want to go to school.

8th World Mathematics Competition 2010

24th April 2010

Singapore

   

  Last Saturday, April 24, 2010, the 2010 World Mathematics Competition was held at the Vista Ballroom of The Hilton Singapore.  More than 90 primary (elementary) school students from Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Japan participated in the competition.  This is the 8th edition of this event which is sponsored by the Singapore-based Sakamoto Educational Systems Pte Ltd.  The objectives of the competition are (1) to challenge, encourage and develop all mathematically-gifted primary school students in all countries, and (2) to foster friendly international relationships among students and teachers.

 

The Mother Goose Nursery School ? Sakamoto students in the Philippine contingent to this year?s competition includes Naomi Anne King, Jared Staniel Yap, and Ethan Anderson Cheng for Grade 1, Gian Matthew King, Paul Elvin Sim, and Lance Ethan Yu for Grade 2; Alexandra Hernandez and Klarisse Go for Grade 3; Vinz Keenan Go, Engelberg Jeremy See, and Phil Elridge Sim for Grade 4; and Selina Go, Ma. Christiana Guillermo, and Gideon Clarence Ong for Grade 6.  Four of these students participated in a contest of this magnitude for the first time while the rest have been contestants in previous editions of this competition.

 

Although the students generally agree that the problems this year were not as difficult as last years? there were really challenging problems for Grades 5 and 6.  There were also fewer problems so the examination proper lasted for only 60 minutes for all levels.  This time is shorter than the average of 90 to 120 minutes provided for in the previous editions of this competition.  Students in the Grade 5 and 6 levels feel the allotted time should have been at least 15 minutes longer because of the tougher problems they had.

 

The final results and the medal count will show that the Mother Goose children did very well in the competition.  The number of medals (12) won this year is more than what was brought home last year (10).  Gian Matthew King was again Grand Champion.  This time he won in Grade 2.  He received a trophy in addition to the gold medal he got for getting a score above 80. The complete medal count shows that the children garnered 12 medals: three golds (Ethan Cheng ? Grade 1, Gian King - Grade 2, Phil Sim ? Grade 4), five silvers (Paul Elvin Sim, Lance Yu ? Grade 2, Alexandra Hernandez ? Grade 3, Engelberg See ? Grade 4, Gideon Ong ? Grade 6), and four bronzes (Naomi Anne King, Jared Staniel Yap ? Grade 1, Klarisse Go ? Grade 3, Selina Go ? Grade 6).  The gold medal winners also received Certificates of Distinction while the silver and bronze medal winners received Certificates of Merit.

 

At the end of the Awarding Ceremonies it was also announced that the venue for the 2011 World Mathematics Competition will be the Philippines.
