Back to School

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010


On September 1st Zoe starts xiao ban. Since this is the equivalent of the first day of kindergarten, there are orientation days this weekend and next so the kids can get used to the school. Today’s activity¬† consisted of each student standing with the teacher saying their name and singing a song.They then had a pee, drank some water and we left.

The good news is that Zoe has made ballet class — which is actually pretty competitive (I was warned last year that she might not make it). Auditions (who knows what they consisted of) were held last spring and today I was told that out of 5 xiao ban classes Zoe’s is the only one that focuses on ballet rather than chess. I eagerly await the first performance.
