    ESF Primarys

    I learned that the same class teacher assigned to your child at Kennedy School will teach all subjects except for subjects such as Mandarin, PE and Music will be taught by other specialised teachers. Is it the case with other ESF primary schools? Anyone has any comment?

    This is true - and it is standard practice in Australia and the UK for yoru child to have one teacher for literacy, numeracy, science, humanities etc. ESF requires that their staff have the appropriate degrees/diplomas to teach at this level, so staff are 'trained' in all these areas.
    Art/Music/PE/Mandarin/other LOTE are usually taught by specialist teachers.

    This is not only standard practice in the UK and Aus it is standard practice as far as I am aware in all primary schools in HK. Many schools do not even have specialist teachers so you will be doing very well to have specialist teachers for Mandarin, PE, Music and you will also have specialist teachers for special needs. It is not until secondary school that your child will get different teachers for each subject. Understand the school has a great reputation.
