Paya Lebar Methodist Girls

There's nothing quite like being able to discuss issues and network with other parents with children in the same school as yours. Individual Schools' Official Parent Support Groups are welcome to come in and help out the incoming groups of parents.

Any idea what is the selection criteria for PV? Also what are the available duties that parent can volunteer for?

Lushlush don't worry too much about PL moving or not cos it may not even happen; reno/upgrade is always ongoing for most schools : ) Actually people are more worried if they can get in.

Don't worry, my girl's primary 4 homework is still manageable cos this is not some schools which focus mainly on academics and psle results. PL is a very 'balanced' school as mentioned before and they also focus on values and character too. For the christians' parents here, you will be glad to know that once a week there's 1 period scheduled for christian devos and worship singing. Good luck to those hoping to get their girls in : )

:yikes:

This isn't the case from the small sample size (just a handful) I know of the mid-primary top class. By 'homework', I'm referring to ONLY school assigned homework.

I know of kids who spend a lot of time doing 'homework'. I faint just by looking at their practice papers, spelling and tingxie/moxie list from their various enrichment classes/tutors.

Just sharing my observation.

Blissedsher, not surprised to know top class usually has more homework due to school's high expectation but I believe it's not the case for the rest of the classes (not uncommon in all schools though not just plmgs). So I would say majority of the other classes' homework in PL is still manageable; at least my girl still has time to play slime in the afternoon (I think she's in top 2 class) : )

The girls are taught to record the day's homework in their sch diary since P1. This also gives the parents an idea how much work is assigned daily, unless the student is not diligent in recording the homework.

The subject teachers will write the assigned homework at one corner of the board so that each teacher can have an idea how much homework there is for the class, to avoid overloading the girls.

For the benefit of your niece, your sis might want to review the homework entries in her school diary and if necessary, have a discussion with the FT or Level Head.

PL used to be more relaxed but recently my sister whose daughters are there have started to see greater and greater emphasis on academics. Her eldest who is in the best class is bogged down with homework, weekends are also busy doing homework. She talked to the level head but it seems more parents like this emphasis so she just has to go with the flow.

My hb and I like PLMGPS as we heard good feedback about this primary school but we are staying more than 2 km from the school. We hope to sign up as Parent Volunteers and hope we could qualify for Phase 2B. I went to the school webpage but cannot find any Parent Volunteer Form? Can anyone send it to me at yt_yeoh@yahoo.com, please? Or is there any WhatsApp chat group that could let me join to know more, please add me 90104019. Thank you.


HI Beanie

Hope all is well with you!

I am new here too. I read your post and would like to know if you have any luck with the Parent Volunteer thingy? I am thinking to be a PV too.
Hi SofeAfiq
I have submitted my PV form. I don't know if I am successful ...praying that the school will call me.

Would any mummies here tell me when do PV start clocking the hours...from July 2018?
