A letter to appreciate school

Time flies, the day KB had to attend school, we cried. The day it was time to withdraw him we cried. Despite which, we had to move forward in view of long-term benefits.

With beautiful memories, we will soon close this chapter comes Sept as we launch fully into homeschooling 2 toddlers. We thank God for how much he is adapting in school during this period.

The teacher had this to say "Theo is an independent and fast worker, way to go!"

Dear principle,
We have spoken with teacher xx of N2 and informed her of our decision to withdraw Theophilus from school to homeschool him.
We were in great praise of the time he spent in school, proven himself to be independent, secure and confident. We feel extremely blessed to have a gentle and experienced teacher such as Mrs xx; she is able to speak with the children and manage a class of kids with ease. I witnessed that on my first day with Theo and has been impressed with her. We also thank God for Guo Lao Shi (ex-chinese teacher) who is extremely pleasant and cheerful. My son, Theo spoke fondly of both teachers.
However, we wanted to facilitate a greater child-directed learning and fuel Theo’s need to keep enquiring in his discovery, as well as to create more opportunities for social interactions, not just with peers but with the society-at-large, hence our decision to homeschool him.
Arise Kindy comes across as peaceful & structured – a comfortable place that young children can go to and feel secure. We certainly are very pleased that Theo was able to enjoy his time there! We will miss Mrs xx very much and I’m sure Theo will as well.
We were wondering if we could have Mrs xx over for one of our family dinner? We want to thank her for all the love and care she has invested in all the kids and also in Theo.
Theo would be finishing his final term this Sept.
Thank you so much,
