Re: Cedar Girls Secondary School

I have no idea how they calculate CCA points with the new guidelines. Anyway CCS participates in SYF, and some other competitions like Chinese debate, or Chinese speech or Chinese calligraphy competitions. I'm not sure if the school still have Arts Festival (I forgot what they call it already) but i...

Re: Alevels or IB

Which subjects' syllabus do you want? I have some. I think you should be able to find them online. I got some from the internet, the rest from my teachers. In ACSI, we don't normally use textbooks. Students use textbooks as reference most of the time, not used in class. The school gives notes. I thi...

Re: JCs - Parents Networking Group

DD went to ACSI too. Like what twilight said, no issue. Boys make friends in a different way from girls generally. Girls tend to be more cliquey (in my opinion), so the "new girls" who joined ACSI do not have problems mixing around Twilight... i remember you giving me some advise some time ago. Hav...

I was from AV&Photography. During my time, there was no fee to pay, and no need to own a DSLR. They lend out cameras. I think they should still be doing that.

Re: JCs - Parents Networking Group

Tks jtoh. Another thing I'm concerned about is whether the jae students generally fit well into ip schools since they are the minority. Wonder if any parents can share about this. I went to ACSI in year 5 and being from O levels wasn't a problem at all. Social wise, in the early OG days, I asked th...
