It the one with the lowest COP for PSLE S1 among the schools on our DSA list. So when needed to cut the number down, it's eliminated.

I recall last yr June holiday for my ds was very 'eng'. Oh yes, just make sure your child read Chalotte Web.

Thks thmejlfm and Zann, for your reply. I was just wondering is it the same for other GEP sch students. Zann, may I know why must read Chalotte Web, is it they have to do book review about it later on?


Oops! it is only for P4 GEP only. Are you referring to P4 GEP?

Yes, I am referring to P4 Gep. So is the Chalotte Web still valid?

DD just came back from the leadership camp crying cos she lost one bag of her clothes (new Adidas track pants, new Adidas 3/4 pants, new long sleeve T shirt, sch socks etc) and some other stuff.

If anyone of the kids whose kids has attended the camp and found the bag which contained the above mentioned item, please let me know..

Many thanks!

Oh poor thing... How about calling the camp organizer to check? Ask the teacher in charge for the number.

My girl also just returned from the leadership camp. I cooked her favorite dishes for lunch. Now she is sleeping like a baby :love:

She enjoyed the camp very much but said she was very irritated by the endless complains by some of the kids. There was one girl that hated everything, no air con, food not good enough for her, etc,etc. One even said she wished she never had to be at the camp. She went because her mother promised to let her play computer after that. I seriously think MOE GE Branch have to review their selection criteria for kids to go for this "LEADERSHIP" camp. :lol:

I think not a good idea to consider school just based on COP. I have nothing to do with ASCI but I think also need to consider school culture and curriculum also, that is, holistically. Getting a school that best fit a child's profile and nature more important. I know one boy in HCI, unhappy because the culture does not suit him. He wants to be in RI but have to obey mother. He just bear with it but what for, if things could be better and he could have a happier learning journey. Poor boy.

Sometimes, the 'leaders' chosen by the teachers are good academically, know how to behave in front of the teachers, but don't really have much leadership skills.

.emmm...the ge branch should give opportunity to all geppers to attend such leadership course...so that all of them can have the experience. Since most schools have leadership course for their prefects, monitors and cca leaders, so the leadership course organise by the ge branch should cater for all geppers (just my opinion...)..so that they can learn some skills and have fun all together... :dancing:
