I was looking for "An American Childhood" & "I know why the caged birds sing" at Kinokuniya but was told out-of-stock. Anyone want to sell me their old copy or know anywhere I can find them?
MTIA!

Hi, Flowermonaster, if I am not wrong, the remaining science topics are those in the theme of Interactions (Forces, Energy, Web of Life, Environment, Interactions of Organisms, Adaptation) :smile:

Which schools are your kids in and how did they cope with the change to a new school/ culture?

My DS is from a neighborhood primary school. DH and I placed him there as it is nearby our place. Now he is keen on ACS...

How are the school fees like btw? Is there a huge jump in fees that have to be paid - misc fees, Sch fees etc?


Mine same like your's, neighborhood school w no tuition or enrichment. Is it necessary ? I hv seen earlier post, so many go for Learning Hub, etc. Is it necessary ? My DS ok with his work except for English.

May I know how you determine which GEP sch to go to? What are the strong factors that affects your choice?

I would love some insights on the following schools:

1) NYPS
2) NHPS
3) HHPS
4) ACS

I would really appreciate your greatest advice before we make the important choice..Thank you!!

For us, very simple. Whatever my DS chose, he is the one studying not me. Good or bad, he will have to learn how to overcome it. So far, he is happy with his choice & he is happy, we r happy too. :smile:


The reason I asked was cos DS only wants NYPS but we need to put in 3 choices mah.. I not sure abt the other 3 I asked abt...
