Temasek Junior College [*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.

My DS just joined TA this year. So far (2 weeks old;-)) she is very happy and mentioned that all her teachers are very good, knowledge wise , passion and teaching method. She can finally see the difference between a JC Teacher and a secondary school teacher now. The progtramme is also rigorous, chinese test every Friday and homeworks and project starting to come in...

She enjoyed her orientation and the vibrancy of the JC and classmates are an eye opener to her.

On the downside from parent perspective, the school is not so strict as they treat you as little adult. I guess we have to keep an eye on DS in case she can manage the sudden freedom..

Overall, no regrets.

My girl have not been called up for the interview, so I guessed she was not good enough.

Temasek JC *IP*

Postby JanePang » Thu Dec 29, 2011 7:49 pm

Hi everyone,

I live in the East and am looking at Temasek JC's 6-year IP programme which will start in 2013. I understand that they have been offering the 4-year IP since 2005 and their students have done very well in the A-level examinations.

This year, one of their IP students was one of Singapore's top scorers; she was one of 5 or 6 students in the country to offer 13 AUs (Academic Units).

Does anyone have kids studying at Temasek JC and could they share their experiences please - culture, academic, CCAs etc.?

Thanks!
