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.

Yes, P made it all clear from top down, clear and transparent. No room for miscommunications, no speculations whatsoever. Even girls from same primary schools (107) are spread all over different classes.

The first one month is already so busy. Normally 4/5 day she comes back at 6 pm. Trial, activity, Classes. But can feel DD can arrange time by herself.

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.

Cbk wrote:yes, that is my understanding. 2 years ago classes seem to be by dsa domain, mix with gep girls and psle high scorers. But this is no longer the case this year.

The P often talked about how sensitive girls are and do not want any girls to feel ‘I am not in the top classes, therefore I am not as smart.’ (she said used to hear some girls saying that) Glad she is walking the talk and leading the ‘top’ schools in doing away with the streaming.
Cbk dd in rgs too? Sounds like senior student?

She made her selections but not selected by the cca she wanted.
Competition for clubs tough, even representing her pri school formerly also did not make the cut.
Sports that DD represented pri sch either taken out or not available by RGS
She did considered Judo but need to go external club for training plus she already has weekly tkd training, so no go.
If RGS can offer TKD same way as Judo might work for us. Will be joining NSG via RGS for TKD anyway

No physical advances in RGS but might have spot checks that she is not agreeable to. :offtopic:

I thought most schools will “recognize”/count an external sports/club CCA if the child is undergoing training 3 or 4 times a week. Please check with the school.
