back to school hunting

the results of the UPIS KAT were released last April 29. my son sadly did not make it (sad face!). o well, back to school hunting again. i wish the Philippines had more state schools so quality education would not be limited to the elite or those who have money. but sadly (again), our country is plagued with corrupt officials that the government cannot even provide the basic necessities for its citizens. *sigh*

i'm now scouting for schools, and in the coming days we'll be visiting them. funny, when i told my son that he did not pass and that we have to look for another school for him. he wasn't affected at all, and even said if he can go to swimming school instead. and THAT put a smile on my face at the end of the day.


  1. This sounds harsh but you know what. Everything is for the better. You know how sometimes you want something so much and when it doesn't happen you don't die and the world doesn't end! Exactly then you let go, relax and help what was meant to be to come to you.

    I don't know how old your son is but he seems to know this :)

    Best of luck!

  2. thanks, Kanelstrand! my son's turning 6 this month, and i'm happy he didn't take the news badly considering that he enjoyed his entrance exam in UPIS.

  3. i have a little funny feeling that they prioritized "special people" there? I'm glad kuya aoi was A-Ok and just cool about it! :)

  4. there is a 60-40 ration of students to be accepted, favorable to those whose parents are UP employees. *sigh* i hope they have openings for Grade7 when the time comes!
