Yes too terrible :stupid:


probably caused by more roots of the grass and church / clan members ....??


As the years go by, parents become more well-informed and they join KSP to know all the different routes, competition gets more keen. If you think down the road, our grandkids will be dependent on which schools we send their parents to :!:

thats y we got to be far-sighted. should send our kids to the so-called good schools so that our grandchildren guaranteed a place next time. lol er, that also means shld try to get into good co-ed schools, if not next time grandkids are opposite gender of their parents then we will :stupid:

Let me looked at my crystal ball. Blurry blurry at first. Ok, saw it already. It says that 40 yrs down the road, NYPS & RGS will still be tops. Wait wait, I see something else :| . I also see that SAPS will rise up and challenge both schs. So parents of kids in these schs made the correct choice.

Why not think out of the box? Send our kids to the more ordinary school, help them to excel there and get their names permanently on the school plaques in the school's hall, challenge them to bring pride and glory to the school by doing better than kids in the supposedly better schools, and be seen as the ones that really made the difference in the schools. Our kids can then be the pioneers that brought their schools to the top. Imagine the pride that THEIR children will have when they become students of those schools. Just imagine. :)

It is our children that made the schools, and not the other way around. A good school is one with educators that can inspire our children to challenge their limits, and not one that is completely focused on getting their charges to score all As for academic exams.

Our children's path are to be charted and walked by themselves, not by us, and definitely not by the school of choice. Teach our kids to want to chart their own paths to their dreams using their own natural born skills and talents. Life does not end just because they did not get into that "good school" that we wanted so much to get them into.

Planning ahead

My hubby did tell me he wished he attended a school which is still around, so that he didn't have to go through all the stress now. Well, let's hope MOE doesn't change the ruling again, so that son will not have problems registering his children for P1 in future.
