Hi

During my child's P1 orientation in 2007, he was given some maths(number) and English(alphabet) worksheets to do in his class. I wasn't aware until I checked with him after the orientation. Thereafter, I heard from some parents that their children were identified to go back in December or to attend remedial lesson wef January. I didn't hear anything from the school for my child 'screening test'.

:!: now... it's scary to think that schools seem to think that kids need to be prepared before P1. I guess your son "passed" the screening test.

Ya, I think so. Some children progressed well after the remedial and has even done well for their CA and SA this year.

Hi,
My son will also be going to P1 at ZDPS next yr. I'm new to this forum. Accidentially found out abt this website a few days before the 2C registration phase. Found it to be very good. Didn't know that I'm not the only parent facing problems choosing betwen RV and ZD. Had initially registered in RV but withdrawed my application at 4.15 pm and registered at ZD cos didn't want to go thru the torture of having to ballot and stressed up again. Look forward to sharing more information with parents whose kid will be going to ZD next yr. :celebrate:

Hi all

My daughter will be attending ZDPS P1 next year. Hope to learn more about the school and its culture.

I didn't know there's a screening test prior to school starting next yr! And got remedial if they don't pass the test? Stressful even before school starts! :shock:

Is it true that ZDPS does not have any exams in P1? How about P2?

BTW, are there any parent who is interested in signing up for the parent volunteer group? :lol:

Hi,

Saw at the school's calendar of events that the orientation will be on 21 Nov 09. Wonder it is confirmed. Think they will let us know by 6 Aug as we suppose to hear from them ? :?

Hi,

do we still need to do volunteer work after we have gotten a place at ZD? I'm worried about the screening test :idea: not sure if my son is ready for it... haiz... by the way, how's the standard of the school and also the teachers? :roll:
