Boarding school

Postby daylight » Wed Nov 28, 2012 9:21 am

Hi I'm currently living overseas but my sec 1 child would like to return to singapore to study and live in the boarding school. Wonder if there is anyone who can share their experiences or any information about the boarding schools that are not run by the top schools?

for example, what is the profile the students eg are there a mix of many nationalities or is there a majority nationality. If yes, from which country's. Are the headmaster or teacher running the hostel able to control or discipline students regarding the school work , behaviour, handle bullies etc. How is the allocation of room and room-mates done ? Are the management of hostel open to parents' feedback? Is MOE the authority who oversees the boarding school?

Any other information is appreciated.

Thank you.


Thank you.

Most of the boarding schools are owned by top schools and most people who stay there are foreign scholars from China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand etc. The ones that are not by top schools are Oldham Hall and St Andrews.

What is the concern with not wanting a top school boarding school?
