Hi beautiful day,
Ya. Thks for supporting my view point.
I know many schools normally organize events on the sat morning especially if it involves parents. If parents are working in a organization that have annual leave of only 14 days or difficult to take leave , the parents are going to miss out a lot of the school events. With 6 years in school , the parents have to take quite a number of leave just to attend to the school events.
With frequent meetings at work , I find it hard to attend those sessions . I have also missed out meet the parent session. I merely spoke to the form teacher over the phone regarding my girl's progress .
On the homework , may be she is in lower primary , hardly any homework or worksheet given for her to complete at home. Unlike my elder boy who was from another school, he used to have ton of worksheets to complete even when he was in pri 1.
On the school performance , I find it meaningless for the school to show just the mean T- score of the cohort . If the T score is 211 , it show only that most of the students can only go schools that take in such score .Actually, will this kind of score , not much choice of good neighbourhood schools. Can't even get in zhong hua at all which is just next door .
it make the parents worry even more.
I also don't agree with what the school said that the school performance in a certain subject is not reflective of the individual student performance. It is reflective in general . For school that is strong in Chinese eg. Pei Chun, the students in general will have a higher std n that will translate to better result for Chinese in PSLE for the students in general . Parents know the school std is higher than that of PSLE.
I m not sure will YangZheng share the details of the school performance to the parents of the cohort taking PSLE . Any parents can share?
If the school is so secretive , it is not assuring . It will make the parents more worry. Will take the assumption that the school dare not share as result no good. Hence,parents need to ensure the child to be the top 10% to get in to the better sec school .
