Re: Opinions of the Primary School Registration System

If my daughter gets 250, I would probably be scolding her for she is usually scoring at the 90s

Re: GEP 2013 - Class Starting P4 in 2014

It is not that terrifying as you may think of. Being 1st time GEP parent as well, P4 is certainly a wake up call and P5 is accelerated at high speed with loads of projects / assignments.

Re: Some students fail to thrive on Integrated Programme sch

My dd is not disciplined in studying ie mugging but displayed high interest in out of classroom learning. So should she go into a IP school ? She is suitable to go to one but she must change her attitude all she'll be beaten. That's what I learnt from my daughter Rosalinda (15) and my son Marcus (1...

Re: Secondary School Science

Um hi, do you guys know any good tuitions for Chemistry and Biology for IP (Interragated Programme)? My daughter Rosalinda can't cope. Any tuition centres besides Joystick? I am already considering Joystick but I still have to think of at least 2 more to compare. Anyone knows?

Looking at the MOE flowchart, it seemed my part time helper's dd made the wrong choice after O levels. She was accepted to poly (after my helper helped her to appeal) but chose to go ITE instead to be with boyfriend. Since ITE will eventually route back to poly, looks like she'll go one big circle....

Re: All About Choosing Piano Schools And Teachers

I think the piano schools in singapore are: Yamaha, Christofori, Mandeville, Oppus One, Edvox... Is there anything else? My eldest girl goes to Christofori, my second, third and fourth all go to edvox. I think Yamaha is the best from some of my friend's experiences but none of my children want to go...
