    An interesting article about Bui O.

    http://jmsc.hku.hk/hkstories/content/view/709/9013/1/1/

    The population there according to the principal, is now more international than local. The article has got me thinking about my options! There are so many more English speaking kids attending local schools and with rising international school fees, could be the start of a new trend.

    Yeah, I'd like to know too.

    What about Christian Alliance, Kingston, Creative, KCIS?

    i know that in sai kung, there are a LOT of parents that choose local for kindergarten and some continue with local for primary (at the school that i highlighted above). in my visits to the primary, i've seen mixed kids, PH kids, white kids, black kids and everything in between. like i said, i'm happy with our selection.

    I am just amazed at the tremendous pressure on these little children to be "perfect." I was just reading an article about how some children don't get into schools over the smallest things! Kids are kids and yes they need disaplined and need to be respectful and such. But geeze to be rejected from a school from a hour or so assessment of the child, how badly these children must feel (and parents too).

    the thing is, these schools are all so oversubscribed....maybe it would be better to do a "lucky draw"? but that isn't necessarily fair for the school....no easy answers.

    Our LO got rejected in an Int'l KG because they found her to be over active, and they wanted more disciplined ans structured kids. So i think all the schools have their own criteria for selection.

    I am just not too sure about what to do now. I dont want to send her to a local school which does not have English as Medium of Instruction. we are not too sure about whether we are going to live her long term so I really want her to study in an EMI school.

    from tung chung, there arent many options for this. I hope something better happens soon.
