I had school today! On a WEEKEND! Why do we need to replace school for Hari Raya? If they want an extra holiday why didn't the people in charge plan the school holidays and public holidays properly when they were listing out all the school holidays? It gets pretty irritating and tiring when your weekend is cut short.
Why shouldn't there be school on a Saturday? Every student need a rest after a long week at school. You can't expect them to go to school everyday and study. You also need to give us some time to work on our hobbies and interests, and also some time to rest. When can we work on such things if we have to go school on a weekend? By the time we come home from school, it would be in the afternoon already, and we'll be most probably too tired or either no time to work on your hobbies.
The plans we have planned out for that day too also have to be canceled. It's a hassle, you know. Some of my friends rather not go to school but attend their tuitions instead. The reason they give is: "Teacher is not going to teach in school anyway, may as well go tuition. There at least you learn something." At least a quarter of my class today were absent. Furthermore, not all the teachers were at school today...
If the people in charge want an extra holiday for the festive seasons, think of us students also please! It's torturing us when we have to attend school six times a week! I thought they banned replacing of school days already? Can't they follow the rules they planned out?
