haha... Yes, math selection test over and seems not ez. DS1 shared one question w me and i'm like 'huh?'

All of us seems to be in the same boat... Kids are cool and relax, basically bochap abt IDP. Parents are concern and worried... Maybe shd consider teaching kiddo a lesson on timely preparation, and consequence of not doing it. Anyway, decided to bring him out today to enjoy.

He has the leadership camp in June. By the way, how many participants are there in the leadership camp? Is it similar to the one run by OBS?

Yup, he has lots to do this weekend... IDP and SS projects....sigh, so much to do and so little time.... :roll: But he is still so cool, calm and collected.


OK. Thx.
Heard in passing about d OBS camp, but don't know d details. Anyone?

Quite a lot of homework for my ds this weekend plus projects. Sometimes quite frustrating for us as parents too. This year, find that we don't have much time for family outings and family gatherings with extended family or friends.

Thanks. Didn't think he would be selected for leadership camp.... DS is the quiet sort but seems quite popular with his peers.

Agree. Have been wanting to arrange an outing to the zoo, mainly for my younger kid... and keep shelving it... :roll:

Congrats, Herbie!

For the leadership camp, I guess the teachers in my dd's school could not decide how to select.

First, the kids were asked to complete a questionnaire and they were asked to name a person whom they feel should attend the camp. In the end, from her class, only prefects and class monitors were selected. :roll:
