Now that he is going to P3 and have formed rather strong friendship with a few of the kids in school, he is resistant to changing school.
My elder boy was resistant to changing school after P3. A few months into P4, he was happy with our decision. At least, there were 2 proper PE sessions plus other non core subjects on a weekly basis.
Can share your process for getting you boy into the new school?
Elder boy has a good academic track record since P1. He also passed GEP screening round 1 and went for the round 2 but was unsuccessful. With these, we submittted applications at a few other pri schools - Henry Park, ACS, Nanyang, Nan Hua and Pei Hwa. We first recd offer from ACS and went down to discuss the sch transfer. As the class allocation were already set for its pupils, the sch was unable to offer us the top class. So we rejected the offer. Then Pei Hwa called- also not top class, but at least it is a SAP sch. Hubby thought it was better to be exposed to HCL earlier.
