Meridian has a very good P1 and 2 programme. They are one of the 16 schools that will be piloting the holistic assessment next year and will do away with P1 exams next year. However, I suspect their P3 and 4 maybe a worry.......

just one feedback since my niece is from that school... the teachers are ethusiastic but some lack drive and the principal lacks leadership...

my niece ('95) went through 5 years of primary school chinese class and her standard was like primary 2.... it was only the last year, she had this primary 6 chinese teacher who provided the ram up and she scored an A for it ...

personally i dont agree with such slack as learning is a process ... the school wasted 5 solid years of good learning grounds... according to her primary 6 chinese teacher, it appeared that the school faces such problem every year.... she had to cover all the grounds her fellow colleagues missed in the past 5 years... my question is what is the principal doing????!!!!!

My son's in P3 this year

Postby ChangiGreenDad » Fri Jan 07, 2011 10:28 am

My child is in P3 this year. So far, we are quite happy with the school. His form teacher (Mdm Sofia) readily answers our emails/calls, and so does the principal. The only complaint is that there are not many choices for CCA, especially for P1-P2. Beacuse his Mandarin is not too good, he was put into a class where the ratio was less than 10 kids per teacher; we are very happy about that!

One request: My son needs to get from Meridian to Upper Changi Road East after school everyday. The school bus took more than 1 hr for the short trip during the trial run a few days ago. The public buses will take just as long as he would need to changes busese.

Anyone's kid would like to share a cab with him? It costs about $6 to Changi Green where I live (next to SQ training centre, before the EXPO). Otherwise, any parents drive their own kids who'd be passing that way? I'll be glad to contribute to petrol. Message me here please or to iban71 at gmail dot com
Cheers!

Last night, my son had to do an online survey. Unknown to us (I was helping), there must have been more than 150+ questions and had to be done in one-sitting because there was no 'save' function. Can the designer of the survey really justify the length of this survey??
