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.

I emailed Ms Ong re my CCA queries and to my pleasant surprise, she assisted DD to get into one of her CCA choices. Thank you so much , if not for both of your suggestions, I may not have sent Ms Ong an email and DD may still be in limbo with CCA arrangement.

BTW, wishing everyone here a happy valentine's day :)
You're most welcome, OrangeJuice. :hugs:

So happy for you!
Glad that your DD's CCA issue has been resolved.
So is your DD in the performing arts, UG or sports?

Happy Valentine's Day to you too,
And to everyone else in this thread! :smile:

fix_you wrote:haha I think its just like, for the past 3 years in RGS we've already gotten used to paper handouts and doing not doing work online? All the new platforms- acelearning, moodle, new moodle, inet, edmodo, google groups/google docs, I guess it takes some time getting used to? I believe that to the Sec 1s, they will find it fun and all but for us, as we've already experienced what its like without using IT for lessons and its quite weird to have to change midway so we don't entirely enjoy it...
I completely understand where you're coming from.
After 3 yrs of paper handouts, guess the yr 4s will need some time to adapt to the new platforms of learning & re-condition their learning styles. Hang in there! :rahrah:

Yes. So remember to work hard in Year 1/2 so you stand a chance of qualifying for ESIP. :)
