    Is schooling always on your mind?

    i guess it is in HK anyway.
    im tired of thinking and worrying about this whole school thing here.
    i worry about international primary school fees and have no idea about
    the other local english medium schools here ...... just venting i guess......

    Same here. Till my dh told me that "expensive" school was not a guarantee for a successful life later on. His friend told him that his cousin studied in one of the "pricey" international school but now he had a better job than his cousin! (But, somehow, I'm still worry abt my ds schooling!)
    But I'm not going to put him in the local school. Maybe I'll find an international school that's not very expensive. And teach him some stuffs at home.

    Yeah, I know. I can't send my son to local school either as I don't know Cantonese/Mandarin.
    How old is your son?

    Fees as high as college education

    I totally understand what you're going through as I'm attempting to do a spreadsheet to figure out which schools I can look at within my vicinity and how much it would set me back. While surfing the web, I've even found an international school for kindergarten for over 112K. Does that sound insane or is it just me?

    lynn - my son is 4. i dont know chinese/mandarin either. hubby does but he works too many hours to be able to help son's homework.
    HK for now - its not you, its an insane price, bet that kindergarten you mentioned was Yew Chung which is like mega $$$$$$$$ ridiculous.

    i am applying to ESF this year and also a local english medium school in tai wai so we'll see........ good luck you all,

    Shaz,
    You sure know your schools. Yes, that was the one I happened to stumble upon on the web. Luckily I don't live in that neighborhood so it's not even an option.
