Hi,

I've the intention to enrol my son for P1 next year.
May I know is there a ranking system for P1? Such as they need to go through an entry test and segregate them according to the grade they get?

Any mummies can share alittle bit more the advantages and disadvantages in this school?

Registering for Edgefield

Postby ALim » Sat Jul 31, 2010 2:54 pm

Will be registering my girl in Edgefield Pri. Before that, was considering between Mee Toh & Edgefield. Although a lot of pple hv been saying Mee Toh is gd, I hvnt seen anything outstanding abt the school frankly (sorry, dun mean to offend anyone...). So I decided based on the following:
(a) School session & school care svc - Edgefield is morning session, Mee Toh afternoon session for P1 & P2. I feel it is better for my girl bcos both hubby & I are working, so will hv to send her to school care service. If she were to be in Mee Toh, that means she hv to wake up very early, abt 6.45am so that we can send her to the school care centre. She probably will feel very tired during her lessons. Moreover, the Edgefield has after school care in the school premise. That means we can save on school bus fees.
(b) CCA - Edgefield offers a wider range of interesting CCA compared to Mee Toh.

Good to hear tt. Although my dd is years away fr p1, good to hear abt this as I stay very near the school. Like tt it has after school care too as we are FTWP. Good luck to all parents going thru balloting!

Edgefield Primary

Postby joylly » Mon Sep 20, 2010 11:26 pm

Hie

My boy is in Edgefield Primary P1 his year.

Id u're living within 1 km or even 2 or 3 km of the school, there's no balloting required. All applicants go in. This is so for the last few years.WOuldnt know for the next few yrs tho'

However, if u've noticed the Parents Support Group of this school is ..... bad ! Dont dream of having an active support group in school or discussion over the forum. The school however do occasionally organise seminars and talks for parents on how to help their kids in their academics studies.


The only good thing of this school :

1. after school care in the school - but yr kid gotta eat at the canteen everyday.
2. Have a wide range of ECA and other form of enrichment activities.
3. QUite active in sports.
4. For P1 and above, they provide different aspects of music education to the students.


SOmehow the list of what are good are listed here. However, somehow, I dont feel any soul to this school. Dont ask me why.

Hi

thanks for your feedback on efps. How about the teachers? Are they good and thoughtful to the students? To me, the teachers are the most impt. Whether they kids are motivated or not depends on how well they like and "look up" to the teachers.

I have a DS going to Pri 1 in 2 years' time and now in dilemma whether to choose mts or efps.

Thks!
