vlim,

No need to worry, SA1 get average above 80%, interview ok will do. No need public speaking skill lah, just try to show a bit of confidence, haha =)

My son shy shy kind, I just asked him to go thru his presentation with me a few times. During the interview, 1 of the RI teachers commented that DS spoke too softly.

As for those 'funny/out of the box' (?) interview questions, as long as the kid can back up his choice with reasonable explanation, that will do.

1 of the questions that was asked by most of the interviewers (so you need to prepare your son to answer the question) :

Why did you choose our school ?

All the best to your son =)

But for my DS's case, he was sick on SA1 (Math), so I decided to get him a flu jab after SA1. Yet, even with the flu jab, he was sick on prelim (Scn and CL) and PSLE (Scn and HCL):cry: , so it seems to be due to stress ~ his teacher said so (although he didn't look stress to me :| )

I will get flu jab for my Sec 4 girl this year, just being Kiasu, again.


Hi fruitplus, tks for the tip on flu jab. I mentioned it last night to my hubby who is usually very bochap. Even he agrees to DD getting the flu jab. Will get it probably later in the year, when the vaccine for new strain is out.

My DS felt sick last year during the PSLE oral (eng and mt) and maths paper so it is a good idea to get the kid to have a flu jab..

Do take time to enjoy the festive holidays. Schools will intensify their preparation after the first term and pupils will be asked to report back during June holidays for remedial.

From here, its chiong all the way!.
