Hi libran269

Depends on where you stay. My general recommendation is for you to check out the smaller scale/niche centres around your area. I've addressed this elsewhere before, but do make the effort to go to the centre and speak not just to the admin, but enquire about the teacher's class (how it's conducted, ratio) and if possible, speak to the teacher as well.

It sounds like a lot of hassle to have to allot time and bring DD down to the place, but a huge part of whether the investment will be worthwhile depends on the dynamics between your DD and the centre/teacher as well.

I second that. After spending some time talking to different centres, I have a better idea on how one centre differs from another.

Among the few centres I spoke to, there are some that emphasise on writing techniques during lessons, writings are to be done at home. Another type of centres will spend an hour or so on the techniques and thereafter, students are expected to craft a composition within a given time. The writing will be marked and feedback given on the spot.

That's just one of the few differences i observed. So, you will need to consider carefully your child's needs before signing her up with the centre.

Hi,

May I check with all parents here whose kids are taking the new PSLE format? My girl is P3 this year and suppose to take the new PSLE English paper but the school gave them do the 4 pictures composition. I understand that this is not under new syllabus . I really do not understand why the school still not implement the new syllabus.
