Hi Samsel,

I am also interested to know about Yangzheng as my daughter due for P1 next year.

Perhaps you can start the ball rolling by sharing how the sch is like so far, the teachers, facilities, etc.

All I know is that the uniform has nice colours (my DH calls it Subaru colours) and I am quite impressed by their PSLE results. Also, there is an after school care opposite, so it is very convenient.

Thanks!

Hi

I'm preparing for P1 registration for my boy next year and just noticed Yangzheng for its rating in the Academic Excellence listing. I've asked people around me about Yangzheng but it appears that the school / name is quite obscure. Can anyone share with me the plus/ minus info regarding Yangzheng? Much appreciated

Looks like Yangzheng is not discussed much in this forum...

My DD just started P1 this year at Yangzheng. Was even captured on one corner of the photo on ST frontpage on 4 Jan, when they published a photo of the parents bringing their kids to school on first day...

Nothing much to share here yet, except that I accompanied my DD to the school dental clinic on 2nd week of sch to ask them to look at DD teeth. one incisor was still there when the new tooth was growing behind it abt 2-3 mm already, and slanted at that... so the nurse extracted the (already loose) old tooth. quite fast process. need to call up to tell the clinic first though...

Attended a tea session with the Principal (VP was there too) yest. i was told that such PR/outreach/communication sessions are quite popular nowadays.

Useful info that anyone interested in YZPS include:

- school is supposed to be relatively stress-free for P1-4, where school makes students like school (learn, make friends, play bit) and homework is not really heavy. but when it comes to P5 onwards, they really pump up homework in order to start prepare students for PSLE.

- for P1-2, students are put into classes based on race, gender distribution. Nothing to do with ability/grades. P3 got 2 classes (3A and 3B) that contain students who did well in P2 for English + Maths. All other P3 classes are equal in ability (like P1, 2). For the good classes, students are stretched more by their teachers.

- for P4, there is national streaming, where they now grade students according to results in English + Science (no longer Maths). Good students who make some cut-off are included in a 'Alpha Programme', where they are stretched. They are stringent in their cut-off, so forget about appealing.

- some of their better students might not be from 6A or 6B. Eg. the principal said they are expecting a dark horse this year in 6C (or was it 6D).

- the school chose to use soft teaching methods like drama for lower pri, rather than use journaling.

- there is also swimming lessons, but it's really to instill water safety and water confidence, rather than to groom competitive swimmers.

- the school will move towards single-session as part of the national initiative, but it will not happen in 2011.

Hope this is useful...

not sure if it's good, but there's a student care centre at void deck of the block just across the road from YZPS, just 1 min's walk from the main gate.

then at the church besides that block, i heard also got student care inside.
