Today is the most awaited moment for students, parents and teachers as it is officially the start of the proper class. We are so glad that the school Principal and the staffs worked hard to make things happen which actually get delayed caused by the Teachers’ Strike that took so long to get settled by two parties involved.
On Thursday I had talked to some parents and they were saying that there might be a split class to occur this school year. Well, definitely I didn’t mind about it because plainly I don’t want to think about it yet. I want to wait for the result on the actual date which is today Friday, the official start of the class as the students now have their own respective teacher and a classroom to attend to during school days. Upon arrival to the school today, this is what I witnessed (image below) crowded and everybody are busy looking for their room and teacher’s name.
To my surprised while I brought the kids to their new room, the kids inside are new faces to me. I only saw 1 or 2 faces came from my kids the same old class. And other than that, mostly were big. I then became puzzled. Aha! the school is doing the split classes. Grade 1 and Grade 2 are mixed, grade 2 and grade 3 are mixed and so on. There are also purely in same age level but only few to found. Well, the multiage has been implemented in Nestor! I knew about this educational system back home, being practiced in the remote areas where there often lack of teachers to handle the class. So later on, I’ll post the advantages and disadvantage of multiage classes. Bye for now folks, it is time to pick up the kids!
