Surviving Pri 1 registration phase 2c balloting

Thank God Em got into P Pri school through phase 2c balloting. 120 registrants for 81 seats. God is faithful. God showed Mr Eio 1.5years ago that Em will get into P. We bought our current place 2.5 years back without thinking which sch to enroll em. We just want a place nearer mrt. 1.5 years ago, when we are praying about which sch to enroll em, around the same time Mr Eio dropped his hp after we all get off the taxi. (We don’t have a car then). An old lady found his hp but dunno how to answer his sumsung hp. (See pic for the number of missed calls!) 

Cut long story short, they manage to arrange to meet somewhere. Aft retrieving Mr Eio’s hp, he took a taxi home but somehow the driver make a detour & pass by our new place & a road sign that show P Pri School. Mr Eio even took a photo in the cab & showed me.  

(See picture taken in Jan 2014) I asked him if I should sign up as a parent volunteer since God showed him P Pri sch. As a teacher, It’s more likely for me to get through the interview for pv. Mr Eio told me trust God & not to spend my time this way. 
The reality came this year when we wanna register El to sch & didn’t get into the Pcf nearest to our new place due to dragon year babies even though we registered her last year. The center told us to try again next year 2016 & they also somehow lost our form. It’s divine when the center call us in April this year that there’s a place for El when we planned to shift to our new place in May. So timely! And the best thing is that El’s pcf is just next to P Pri school. 
Last night, Mr Eio told me there’s no need to go P Pri sch to witness the balloting. Just call the sch at 11am to confirm that em is in the sch. I said if we all sleep beyond 8am, (which is usually the case for the kids to wake up around 8.30am) then I’ll not go. But this morning somehow em woke up at 7am!! So, off we go to P Pri school after having breakfast at a coffeeshop. Frankly, when I stepped into the sch hall, the atmosphere is very very tense. There’s many parents & some brought their kids. I thought ops!!, I should not have brought em here. Can see some parents rubbing their hands & grabbing their hand bags tightly etc. 

  
Em sensed the stress & he prayed to Jesus to help him. Thank God we didn’t have to wait too long & can exit from the hall in less than half an hour after seeing that his number is drawn. 

     

 This wait is not so easy though I tend to forget about this enrollment issue most of the time in my busyness & as I try to entrust it to God, plus there’s nothing I can do. I’m not suppose to be a parent volunteer as instructed by Mr Eio. We have to miss the phase 2A1 registration early this July at Mr Eio’s alma mater. The intensity heightens when friends & neighbors with kids registering for Pri 1 starts panicking & asking me questions etc. (while my hubby is totally cool about it.) At times I wonder should I just register Em elsewhere as we heard there’s some discipline issues in P Pri sch & all students have to study HCL which means more work & stress for em & me right? I was sharing that if em don’t get into P Pri school, I’ll just try to enroll him in any other primary school near my place. (Well.. That will be for the next 9 years as El will enter em’s sch) Thank God em got into a sch nearest our home. P1 reg would be easier for El (the dragon baby) in 3 years time. His revelation to us come to pass. I know this is a beginning for all of us, especially for Em. I’m not sure what is in store but I know in all situation God is with us! God knows how this mommy lacks faith & hence told us 3x that her 1st born shall be named Em- God is with us! All glory be unto God!!!
