Raffles Girls' School (Secondary) [*IP]

Having survived PSLE. we still need to network with other parents with kids in the same Secondary school. While giving our teenagers their own space, we can update each other about the school.

Wow, wish you all could see one of the local matches. I go dig the video out.
See the Olympics:



Around 28s mark. Scoring a point with a punch.

Donwan lah, no eye see ler.Last Dec tourney, saw our Nat Jr team pitted against ASEAN country rep, just club level rep not even province rep.Lost quite badly, no chance at all.
The way I see it, the strategy and techniques were outdated compared to current international standard.
If our poorer ASEAN neighbors can afford to pay for quality training, why we cannot afford to do it?
Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam TKD has gone on to world stage and won against other countries.
Like with many sports in SG, more money and professionalism has to be put in before we can see any results.

Spot on, esp looking at Thailand Muay Thai kids.

Hey any competition coming up? I ask DD go cheer. Whoever the opponent, just whack.

Yes you are right. High chance of getting in UG. Why didn't choose any? Your dd can also "walk in judo". Learn how to fend off unwanted physical advances, not much use in rgs though.
Can I ask, what is “walk in judo”? As in it is a new cca that will take in anyone, so you just have to walk in? Judo is not in the list of CCAs on the school website.

I am hesitant to post this publicly because I have not personally verified this, but some parents had shared that it had worked for them, so RGS parents, you can try to see if it works for you too.
.
I think it is this web to get free ms . Thanks for sharing .

hihi,
has anyone tried to download the free ms with your girls' RGS email?
