How many days a week that she had to stay back late in school? Did she take any CCA?
I am lazy to refer back to the forum, may I know which school your girl go? I am just afraid that my DD will be very tired.
Rosyth and Tao Nan which one is better? Sorry, I have to ask this kind of question. Really, really very tired or should say 'stress'.cluelessmama wrote:thmejlfm wrote:Hi, after reading all the forum regarding GEP, still quite worried. Last night, tried to talk to my dd. She cried n cried non-stop. She kept on saying that if she knew had to change school, she will not agreed to take the test. And we also promised her that we will not changed the school. But, now.??
Saw her cried, i was so heart pain. Last night, i can't sleep.
Afraid after changed school, she can't cope. She will start blaming on us. Before that she kept on saying she can look after her sis next year. Now, if change, she can't. I know all these are minor problem. But, can see that she so sad n disappointed. Becos we broke the promise.
Really thought of letting her stay at the present school. I am sure sure kana scold by a lot of people. Got this chance n still don't want to take.
I am also worried that if my dd take the GEP, she has to stop her kumon, ballet n piano. She after getting her sa2 result, she told me that she would like to take out the science tution class.
Today, she looked so sad. Really don't feel good. My dh said let her decide after this sat briefing.
Just wondering, is there any parent regretted after letting your child go for gep?
Last year, I have to convince both my kid and dh that kid should try out the GEP till the very last moment. Kid shed buckets after buckets of tears. The main reason for kid's resistance was that she wanted to remain in the same school with her friends. However, she was intrigued by the programme after the briefing.
Before the submission, we went to talk with her principal to get the reassurance that they would take her back if she was to quit GEP. We also talked to her form teacher whom later talk to my kid about why it was beneficial for her to join GEP. Also, we promised kid that we would take back to her old schools regularly to meet up with her friends. (Till now, she still go back regularly.)
Looking at how well she has adapted to GEP, I'm glad that I have listened to the advice of parents from this forum and that I have persisted in my persuasion. I asked kid the other day if she still want to return to the mainstream - she said:" No way, I like the GEP."
Stay back twice a week coz of CCA,Ch supp and IRS/CEP.
For 2 and half term, stayed back 3 times because of debating workshop/speech and drama/ maths olympiad workshop.
She used to go for drum lessons (her own hobby) but dropped it because she has become bored.
Goes for ch enrichment during the weekends.
