Similarly, my DS is used to staying back for activities since P4, so not much difference except a much longer transport time. It does seem that some do enjoy their new stage of Sch life.
My DS has all along been self-disciplined in finishing up his schoolwork. So no issue for me. But the homework is quite little (~1 hour a day). I supposed since its not as structured as the 'O', they are supposed to do self-learning, so this is where my concern is, cannot just do homework. Anyway shall wait for mid year to assess again
My P6 DD, pout her lips so frequently cos she is still rushing her work while ge-ge already in dreamland. Her P5 was comparable to his P6 load & her P6 is worse than his Sec1. Let's hope my DD will enjoy her Sec life like the bro next year. Now must find out which girls' Sch is 'holistic'? Any advice?
Your DD looking into IP, dual-track or O level? Sorry, I am not familiar with girl's school. I just feel Cedar Girls not bad. As for the 2 branded girls school, think here must be a reason why they r so popular though I m not sure if there r "holistic" or not. Must go visit open house to learn more. I always wanted to visit girls school but no chance.
