DSA 2011 (Page 40)

DSA 2011

Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

Funx3, thanks for the link to RGS DSA - was looking for it but somehow the link from RGS website (http://www.rgs.edu.sg/newsite/) "Admission to RGS" links to last year's DSA.

Anyway, for admission to RI/RGS 2012, application date is from 25 April 2011 to 8 Jul 2011.

[Pls note that GEP students are encouraged to submit their applications by 26 May 2011 (my speculation for the earlier date for GEP kids could be for the school to have time to decide who needs to take GAT)].

RI and RGS open house are scheduled on 21 May 2011.

Yes, we will be at the open house. So far, only NYGH have posted their programme online (http://www.nygh.moe.edu.sg/).

Will probably just do 2 schools on 21 May - RGS and NYGH.

Holidays finally over and packed kids off to school. Now got time to post DD's SOTA Talent Academy for Theatre Studies on 14 March.

Session was from 8 am to 3.15pm. Students were split according to art form that they audition for - hence my account applies only for those applying for Theatre Arts. However, I should think the topics for writing (which is compulsory regardless of which Art Form your child is auditioning for) should be the same and there might be some overlap for interview questions.

Following the welcome address by the Principal, students headed off to different venue depending on which art form they are auditioning for. For Theatre Studies, students were split into 3 groups (about 10 plus students per group). They started off with ice breaking activities and some other activities led by a teacher. There were 2 observers in the room - one from the Academic side, and the other from Theatre Studies.

After lunch break, some students proceed to do their monologue cum interview while others headed off to take the writing test.

DD did the monologue first. She said she was led into a room with 3 persons - 2 were the same observers from the group activity and the third person is a new face, probably from Theatre Arts.

After doing her monologue, DD was asked to read aloud a passage. Then she was asked questions like "Why SOTA?", "Why Theatre Arts?" and "Recount a memorable incident."

Then she proceeded to do her writing test. They were given 3 topics to choose from. She wasn't too clear about the exact wordings but roughly "What are the qualities of an artistic person?", "Are hobbies important? Why?". She simply couldn't remember the last topic.

Session ended at 3.15pm and when I picked her up, she told me that she has enjoyed herself tremendously and felt rather good about her monologue and interview.

So, one down for us. Next on agenda - open house on 21 May.
