Accepted!

Yay! I have been accepted into the Chinese primary school that daddy & mummy registered me in last year. When mummy brought me to the school to confirm my placing last week, we found out that all the classes have already been pre-assigned...

I will be in class 1P

Mummy was told by the school's administrative clerk that there would be sixteen Year 1 classes in the school next year. If these classes are sorted in alphabetical order, guess what? I would be in the last class! :(

  4. Aiya, I forgot to mention, did you check out the location of the class 1P? If it's beside the toilet, please ask to change. It really stinks, and I pity the students. I can ask Vic for you.

    2. Confirm that THIS YEAR 1P is next to toilet, suggest you check with the nice ladies in the school admin office if it is the same every year, then ask to be changed to another class. Because it really REALLY stinks. This was one issue we brought up to during PIBG besides installing air con but no action so far.

    3. You really got Vic to check it out for me? Please thank her for me ya :) Actually being in a classroom right next to the toilet is a good thing... convenient ma BUT if only it's clean and smell-less la. Will see how it goes. Don't think it would be so easy to request for a change of class just because of this. Thanks for highlighting this issue to me. At least I know what to expect and hopefully they would have done something by next year to solve this problem.

    And congrats to Chloe for the acceptance!

  8. 16 classes with nearly 40 kids per class, that's huge. Are there teacher helpers for each class? How does the teacher managed? Hope you don't get lost in the masses. Over here, my youngest girl's school has two Yr 1 classes with 28 kids.

    1. I'm afraid there is only 1 teacher per class, no assistant. It has always been like this even 20+ years ago during my (mummy's) time back in a smaller school in a smaller town.

    1. I guess this is a norm in many urban Chinese schools nowadays, esp those big and "famous" ones like this. Not enough Chinese schools and shortage of Chinese language teachers in the country... hopefully the school can still cope!

  12. Oh btw, just read you last comment about last class, don't worry P is not the last class. Got S, T also... hehe... apparently they follow the alphabets in the school name but I don't comprehend it totally. Just pray for good teacher. Vic's is mediocre. : (

  13. Sixteen class is a lot. Ziyi also got to the Chinese school of our choice.
    We went there in the afternoon on the 1st day, and she is placed in the 4th class already. They followed the name of the school, ziyi got class 1S. :)

    My time, there were about 50 students to 1 teacher in one class....
