Hi Sorry for the Late Reply,
Have not Been Looking at this Thread for Some Time ....

I Used to Work Full Time in my Gal's 1st 4 years in Primary School, but have tone down to Part Time Last Year ....

My Gal is in the School Competitive Team since P2, till Now.
Yes, Squeezing Time Out to send my Gal to Training is Rather a Strain to Me during those Days ....

My Gal Trains 3x per week in school, and 2x per week in External Gym ....
On top of that, during her P1 and P2 days, she's Got Chinese Dance and Ballet at NAFA, on top of other Enrichment Classes Like Abacus, Piano, Chinese Compo, Taekwando, etc.

I Rely A Lot on My Live-in Maid to Send My Gal to and From Class ....
Most of Her Classes R in the CC Nearby or in School (we R within Walking distance to school), So No Problem for My Maid to Handle ....

I Make it a point to Handle All the To-and-Fro for Far Away Classes like in NAFA, etc

Must Say it's Rather Taxing, But AS LONG AS My Gal wanted it, I'll Gotta Squeeze Time Out for Her lor ....

By Upper Primary, She has Decided What She Like to Keep and Drop the Rest ....
Reason Being :
1. Cannot have So Many Classes - Got Time Constraints ....
2. Lose Interest in Some Classes Already - No Longer Enjoy Them

So Now, Her Main Interest is in Rhythmic Gym and Chinese Dance ....

And, Oh Recently, Late Last Year,
She Develops interest in Chinese Caligraphy,
So Added Chinese Caligraphy Class in Waterloo Street to the list ....


Wow Funx3, I wonder how your DD handled all these... excellent! :salute: :salute:

Yes, I think that rate is acceptable. Mine is about there too, but only 2 hours. So yours might even be cheaper than mine.

$500+ for twice a week is quite cheap I guess. Mine is $420 for once a week 2 hours.
