Hi,
Dun think it is very difficult to enter the school (at least not during my time even tho it was the dragon year).

On schoolwork, I guess it's very much dependent on the teachers and which class & level. The higher primary naturally more stressful. Also, the better classes tend to be more stressful.....I guess that's the same in every school.

On remedial classes, (speaking on only P3-P5), believe the kids will have to stay back for 2 days. Plus a CCA.....so depending on the CCA day, the kid will probably stay back 2-3 days a week. And if you sign up for enrichment, more days may be required. For eg, my kid joined 2 CCA + 1 enrichment + special program etc....he's staying back all 5 days till 5pm.

Previously, I dun see much homework, but this year, I sense that the school seems to be pushing harder. Perhaps cos' my kid is P5 or perhaps cos he's starting later at 5.30pm, I do find the workload heavier.

Guess all of us are always in a dilemma. When they have little to do, we complain. When they have too much, we also complain ;) What I try to do it.....IF school too little work, I load. IF school too much work, I try to coach them on whatever they cannot handle....and still load when they are free...ha. Sometimes, it's the kids lah....they tend to dilly dally, walk around, daydream and write too slowly.....then we nag and push loh.

Cheers.

Dear jiyou2003

Kindly refrain from spamming all the Primary School threads in the West. If you are able to tell us which particular school you are looking at, I am sure there would be more than enough helpful parents here to assist you.
