Will be attending this IRS Presentation for P4 parents at Republic Poly this Friday. Is there anything that I should pay more attention to? Thanks.




Hi, I thought the IRS is only for the students? My child's consent form is for his attendance only.. any confusion here? :?

Parents r invited too. Each child can request a max of 2 seats. Need to send in request form for admission tickets, 1st come 1st served basis.

Thanks vlim and 25hr mama . Now I vaguely remember a form that was filled up couple of weeks ago asking for no. of seats required. Probably we were not fast enough to be allocated seats for parent.

Me too. Very Confused! Last Monday, my dd gave me a form to sign for the IRS Whether I allow her to go or not.

I thought I had already signed one few weeks or month ago, asking the parent to go. I asked her whether the parent must go, she not sure.

Will check with her again.

Her school has a lot of activities for these few weeks.

Can anybody advise which science encyclopedia is good for the kid to read? blurred......... My dd's science not so good, teacher advised to read more encyclopedia. Please help! :?:

Wanted to buy a few books for DS to read first.

TIA.

Pls include me a copy too. Thanks.

Anyone can share any website to purchase e-book for the reading listing.


Hi,
One of the p6 gep English assignments is on Biography writing...hence part of the books in the p6 erp list are books abt biographies. Therefore they have to read some of these books to be quite familiar with this genre..

partial list from p6 gep erp on biographies

1. Anne Frank - Diary of a young girl
2.Annie Dillard - An American Childhood
3.Esther Hautzig - The Endless Steppe
4.Eudra Welty - One Writer's Beginnings
5. Jill ker Conway - The Road from Coorain
6. Kendall Hailey - The Day I Became an autodidact
...

(again not sure whether 2012 does the same thing)

Of all the recommended books, I think Diary of a young girl can be easily purchased from bookstores such as popular or kinochuniya...or you can try to borrow it from the library...If I did not remember wrongly, I only manage to get 2 of the above mentioned book for my ds to read....
Good luck all :smile:
