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 :)
Hi Orange Juice,

You're most welcome. :lol:

:congrats: to you & DD on getting into her CCA of choice. :dancing:
That was the club & society that she really wanted too, right? :boogie:
yes it is the club that she really wanted so she is really happy, now I tell her she has to do her part and be an active contributor to the club - that is only fair to the teacher i/c as well as her fellow members.

Yes. So remember to work hard in Year 1/2 so you stand a chance of qualifying for ESIP. :)
Hi, can I ask what sort of grades our DDs shld be keeping in order to keep the EESIS for the next 6 yrs ?

Is there a min GPA score they must meet in order for the EESIS to be applicable each yr ?

Hi OrangeJuice,
You have asked a very difficult question which I doubt anybody can answer.
Even if you check the MOE website, the answer is very vague.

To continue getting EESIS, "the scholar must make good progress each year" (quoted from MOE website).
The question is, what exactly is good progress?
Hmmmm... :scratchhead:

We'll just have to tell our DDs to work to the best of their abilities...
And hope that is enough. :pray:

Hahaha...I've gone one big circle,
And did not give you any answer.
Sorry...can't help. :smile:

MummySTay, thanks anyway ! At least, it would appear that everyone seem to share a similar understanding :smile:

Perhaps whether the student made good enough progress or not would be subjected to his/her relative (rather than absolute) performance.

Maybe another way to find out is to ask whether any EESIS recipient has lost the award mid-way and what sort of performance merited that?

Very true indeed.

So those that have EESIS, will need to continue to work hard to maintain and those without EESIS, can work hard to get ESIP. :wink:

Hi Orange Juice,
I'm sure your DD will give it her 100% since this is what she's really interested in. Have fun!! :wink:
