Smileys for Grade 1

Student Life in Philippines is different from Germany.

I remember waking up early at 5 in the morning, cold shower, breakfast, 3 kids riding at the back of my father’s motorcycle, school from 7:30 to 4:30, going home, assignment, and finally sleep. We have mini-exams and 4 major exams in the whole school year and this served as basis for the grading report.

So, imagine my shock with my girl’s class being from 7:45 to 11:20, no exams at all and to get a smiley for grades.

Mann said that its good. No need for stress. Life does not end with a failing grade in Germany.

Still, I cannot show the smiley grade to my parents or they would think that its a joke.
