Hi Parents,

Holidays are here again!  We just had a 3rd term holiday in December 2022 and a Chinese New Year holiday in January 2023. However, we are heading towards a month long end of term holidays from 17 Feb 2023 to 18 March 2023 (Group A schools)* or 18 Feb 2023 to 19 March 2023 (Group B schools).

The new academic year is also around the corner ie Group A schools* will start school on 19 March 2023 whereas Group B schools will start school on 20 March 2023. The top trending topics in our FB group right now are:

What should I prepare for my child for starting school?
Should I start preparing now for starting school or can wait later?
Should I get an Ergo bag or a trolley bag?
Which brand of school uniform should I buy?
What is the current rate for school transportation?
Which brand of school uniform is iron-free?

Meanwhile those moving to secondary school are also eagerly waiting for secondary school placement and whether their kids have to go to remove class/form 1 placement for current std 6 (2023/24 Form 1 cohort).

Other topics in the secondary group include:
Is IGSE harder than SPM?
What calculator to buy for Form 1?
What tuition does a Form 4 student need?
Discussion 1
Discussion 2

Although the school holidays are around the corner again, we parents are busy planning for the new academic year ahead. With only 2 weeks left to the academic year 2022/2023, what activities are your children doing in school now?

With warm regards,

Masks are one more thing we parents need to include in our starting school or back to school checklist. Buying masks for kids is more challenging than buying masks for adults because kids faces have very different sizes since they are  growing rapidly. It is important to check out the sizes of the kids masks before you purchase.
