  1. Dear teacher,

    Good morning.
    I am a form 4 student from SESERI. I am in a bad situation now..are we allowed to reduce the number of food labels in our chemistry folio? This is because I cannot find all 12 different labels in my house..what if I cut images of the cleansing agents and food labels from a magazine..and find out the contents from the Internet? That way it is more convenient as I have more different range of products (from the mag)than what I already have in my house.

    Please teacher, I hope you approve my idea. I only need to complete the 'collections' part in the folio, after that I am done with the assignment so that I can continue with the homework piling in front of me..

    Thank you. I look forward to read your reply. Have nice days ahead!


  2. thank you, teacher! now it is very clear. I thought we are only required to collect floor cleaners..
