Hi Hi, my boy P4 this year and my girl will be P1 in this school next year.
Any parents from West Grove would like to share your experiences or school worksheets here.

Being kiasu, hoping parents whose child P5 this year could share their chid's P4 worksheet to prepare my son....hehehe....

When I signed up as PV for my son one year before my son P1 registeration at West Grove, there was around 40 parents. Now I heard 130 parents for Yr 2004 P1 registration. My colleague wanted to sign up also cannot liao, too many and this will lead to balloting. My time only 40, so no need to ballot.

Lucky, my son already in, so no need to worry for my daughter. Every year, there only 100+ seats left for phase 2C and there are normally 300 to 400 parents apply. :sweat:

If you ask me whether West Grove is good or not, I ever heard a comment:" Don't worry! West Grove teachers will make your child work hard". That's also one parent told me this school is very Kiasu, sent their daughter's whole class including another 2 classes for supplementary class and their daughter has to go school from 10 am to 6.30 pm since she's in aftn class. And she's only P1.

As for my son, he's an average student. So far, he has no problem to cope with school works and studies and they get to attend enrichment classes during ciriculum time. :D

No doubt that I am happy my boy got into West Grove but what gets me irritated is that everyday he has a few pages of homework to do.
