Something Positive

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Something Positive

Post by Mishmash »

Here is something I would like to share with you.

My daughter's first day at school.

It brings a glimmer of hope into life.

To all the parents on here I wish you the best.

Good one,,, and make sure those photos are kept somewhere so she can see them in ten years and twenty years time, and again when she sends her kids to school in maybe thirty or fourty years from now.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Which school is this?
Is it purely Khmer language, or an English curriculum?
Location?
Cost.

PM. If you prefer.

I suspect that our two shall be changing school again judging by the attitude demonstrated by the Head teacher at Suvarnabhumi.

Is both Khmer & English. Location Kakap

Jasmine is Kindergarten here for 25$ a month.

I gave up Sovanniphumi as was getting nowhere with my son. 2 years behind in development.

I send him to school really just for social skills and friendship in a secure environment.

The academic side as discussed in another thread we have to homeschool.

Saying that - this school is friendly and approachable. It's become quite popular in my Sangkat.

Thanks for the encouragement @Freightdog

Until year 4 or so thats all school is about + simple english language skills. I still look back at my daughters photos from her first day at the Montessori school here in Phuket (2000) and wonder
where did the years go....?
