Thanks in advance.

Hope I'm not too late. :roll: Once I saw the response on this, I immediately registered myself so that I can share my 2cents worth. If by sharing my experiences can help others, that would be great.

My DS 1st enrolled into this sch in yr 1998 coz this was the nearest primary sch (Woodlands Primary not available yet) from my house. Then I enrolled my DD in the same sch (this yr P4) because of the convenience.

Based on my own expectation, I do not think this sch is up to standard (perhaps getting worst). But this is my personal experiences, I do not compare it with other schools around the neighborhood.

When my DS studying there, his Chinese teacher and even the Form teacher often absent (since P1-P3) :rant: . Hence, my DS lost his interest in Chinese despite sending his for Chinese tuition since P1 (once a week for merely 1hr). The Chinese tutor is very good and passionate about teaching Chinese and especially care for my DS. But not much help, as we, the parent is illiterate in Chinese. So my DS lost his most important foundation in Chinese.

Personally think that, because of the sch Chinese teacher every time not around, nothing was taught during the classes for almost 3yrs, by P3/P4 my DS had a really hard time coping with the subject. And he totally lost all his interest too! That was the most visible one that I noticed from my DS as he don't provided much feedback. Every time I asked how was his school? He would just say "Good" :scratchhead:

4yrs later, I enrolled my DD into the same sch because it's the nearest to my house and it is more convenience for my MIL to pick her if needed (I don't allow my DD to go home by herself). This time round I got more feedback (my DD is a complaint "Queen" :oops: ). She is in P4 this yr. Every now and then, my DD will complaint that a few of the periods was by substitute teachers or during sch hours, the subject teacher is not around so she do her work during that time. But then, they make them attend supplementary classes for all subjects after sch till 3.30pm. :slapshead: And during supplementary classes, they go through correction and do worksheets. Waste of time! :stupid:

Very often, the teacher did not complete all the syllabus of the year. My DS do not attend any CCA at all and no teacher bother to check with us.


Hope my humble sharing helps. Feel free to ask anything about this sch. I'll share whatever I know.

:xedfingers:

They just changed to new principal but I have yet to meet her (no event to meet). Normally the results/changes would be seen 2-3 yrs later, which by then my DD will be out of the sch :roll:

But currently the sch is under renovation/facelift. According to my DD, there will be stadium, air-conditioned class rooms and etc etc (sorry the rest I can't catch :oops:) Everyday, she will blah blah about what happen in sch when she reaches home. :sweat:
