Re: St Andrew's Junior

In fact that is what I did with my P4. He takes to the tablet pretty comfortably. I bought him that Creative 7in Ziio with the stylus together with a year subscription to a local Chinese portal for him to pick up his Chinese.

Re: St Andrew's Junior

My son's in P4-4 this year. Computers were an added "feature" for those in P4-1, -2, and -3. I'm not sure how this will help them in their grades. I have a tight control of my son's home computer, though. He can only use it only on a need-to basis. Hi Cervelo, What do the boys in these 3 classes do...

Re: Guangyang Primary

just chanced upon this forum, and just want to comment that teachers who blackmouthed their (new) principal, esp. within earshot of parents or members of the public, perhaps shouldn't be entrusted with the great responsibility of teaching young children, they seem to me to be bad examples.
