Some schools are known to hold "sorting" tests to sort the children into classes. I'm not sure Ai Tong does that, but Ai Tong is part of the Hokkien Huay Kuan and my son's school which is Konghwa is part of that organization. To my knowledge, there were no such "sorting" tests for Konghwa as my son remained in the initial class that he was placed in for the 1st 2 years.

Hi, I was ex-ATS girl and my girl also ex-ATS girl. She graduated last year. I was quite actively involve in the PSG during the 2nd half last year. Mainly on helping out on the P6 graduation magazine. It was tiring but fun !

When my girl entered P1, my principal retired (Mr Ting) and replaced by Mr Ng. When I saw Mr Ting again 12 years ago, I was so emotional inside my heart. I could not believe myself, seeing my principal again, during my girl's time. As for Mr Ng, he is a very chinese oriented person and very caring to the children. I can feel his love and caring towards the children during the SARS period and again when I attended the P6 parents talk.

Ai Tong really leave me lots of memories, during my time and my girl's time. I love the chinese school song ! :D :love:

ATS does not has sorting test. P1 and P2 same class. Streaming based on P2 results, split class in P3. Then another streaming based on P4 results. That means, P3 & P4 same class. P5 and P6 same class. I hope I still remember it correctly. :D

Not sure whether this information holds true. According to a parent whom daughter is in Aitong P1 now, she said that the class allocation is based on the phase you registered your child i.e. Phase 1, 2A, 2B, 2C.... Her daughter was admitted via waiting list. Hence, was in the last class.

My daughter is going to P1 Aitong next year. Cheers.

That sounds exactly the same as Konghwa.

thanx for all the info ...

it's good to hear that there's no sorting done, at least then all children get a fair chance to excel somehow.

really hope my child will enjoy her school life in ATS from next year ... and same for all the new kids joining too ...
