Raffles Institution (Year 1-4)

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 son did MEP in RI. He enjoyed it very much, though the master classes can make him fall asleep. On the whole, he liked it quite a bit compared to other courses in the school. He particularly enjoyed the listening log part and he actually enjoyed the assignments!
Hi 2ppaamm, How is RI DSA (via Music) related to those doing MEP? What is the criteria for doing MEP using piano? and what is the drop out rate like? Thanks.

Does anyone know of a guy who likes to shoot videos of boys in school uniform at Bishan MRT station. He is nicknamed Bishan Gay. He seems to be rather popular among the RI boys. Not only my DS and his friends mentioned about him (they say him weird), I am appalled when one of my son's primary school friend joined his facebook as a fan. This morning my son sms saying that his classmate bluetoothed a photos of Bishan Gay. Well, from the facebook, he looks like a 40 yr old uncle. Maybe he just want to be friendly or what. Anyway, I hope he pose no harm to other kids.

This "bishan gay" has been there for many many years... always can find him at KFC bishan. He's harmless. I wouldn't advise the boys to talk to him lah. He's definitely older than 40s.

Is it true that RI leaves a lot of the learning to the students themselves without much classroom instruction ?

Came across a recent conversation that claimed that both RI & RGS have minimal classroom instructions, students mostly focus on their CCA & projects etc .....

How true ?

Appreciate RI students / parents to clarify

Hi,
DS's MT teacher makes his class memories many words and phrases during lessons through activities and games. His Math teacher does teach but the worksheets given out are way too challenging. DS failed one of his Maths exercise. After making him do some simple drilling on the Math textbook, he is able to manage those worksheets. As DS is the last few in the COP, I wonder if he is able to cope with the rigorous schedule and workload? DS enjoys going to school and has no regrets as at to date.
