But there is one more English assignment which he confirmed not joining and he don't even bother to tell me more.. :| ..?

Here is the link for NUSHS

http://oas.highsch.nus.edu.sg/NMOS/

And Hwa Chong Institution organized the Asia-Pacific Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (APMOPS) and the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (SMOPS 2010)

So there is quite a lot of choice for the school on Maths olympiad.

Tk U vlim for providing the link, it is most helpful. I have browse thru the link and from the What to Include guidelines, it is still vague on whether total portfolio submission shld be 4/5 including the given topic short story.
Think will ask my dd to clarify wif her teacher as she told me her teacher told her it is just 4 in total. Oh and they were not told to submit any past essays/poems earlier. They were also not provided wif the link for the application form as I think they need to submit their portfolios to the teachers for assessment. Only the selected ones will be informed to fill up the application form :|

it was written in the guideline as follow
4.
In summary, the portfolio should contain four creative writing pieces, the reflection notes for these four pieces and the story based on the Creative Writing Assignment....hope it help u to clarify..maybe u can further clarify with the English teacher. :D

oh I ks parent find out from the moe website myself :wink: ...before i get to know this kiasuparent website...I used to go moe website very frequently.. :lol: ... Only the selected ones will fill up the form ? My ds was not informed of them. It seems that those who keen to participate will hand in their past essay/poem for the English teacher to vet thru for advise... But with other assignment dateline lining up and common test coming up in May, wonder would he be in time to do it or no
