You know you come one full circle when you start making plans for school for your child. Well, Celeste will be 4 in January and she will be an early beginner in kindergarten then.
We made a trip to Sri Bestari, a private school here in Bandar Sri Damansara, on Saturday, an Open Day at the school. May I say I was well impressed with the place.
We had always been concerned about where Celeste would eventually be schooling and some of the schools in our area, Taman Sri Segambut would not have been the best choice. So, fortunately a friend of ours told us about a private school just nearby that had the best of private school education and facilities with a government school syllabus…
I had always had the notion that private schools generally kept to themselves in terms of studying systems, and curricular activities.. but I was wrong here. There were quite a few inter-school activities which the school participated in, and they had some excellent track records to prove their capabilities.
Well, kindergarten is a starting point for Celeste, but I am quite sure she will be comfortable studying here till she grows up to primary and secondary school with Sri Bestari.
Well, that aside, as a walked through the classrooms, labs and halls of the school, I suddenly felt a bit emotional… there was the sentimental familiarity with the place… almost as if it wasn’t very long ago that I was a student, myself. Not that it made me feel old but that I somehow realise how much fun I had when I was studying, carefree and without any worries (except for homeworks and exams, which I would gladly trade for, with my current responsibilities!)
But, we’ve moved on… the best part of it is that I am able to do it right for my little princess… and I hope that one day, she looks back and realises that we’ve always wanted the best for her.
She’ll grow up to make me proud… 🙂
