Hello to all, we have just been relocated to Hong Kong from China. We were based in China for the last 10 years n my daughter attended a local kindergarten for the last 3 years. We were offered a chance to be based in Hong Kong for at least the next 5 years n we quickly jumped at the offer as I was concern about the education system in china n hope my daughter could go to a school where the curriculum integrates with the local system (Singapore) where we ultimately will be.
I put in an application for SIS PY2 n was told chances of being admitted is very slim, almost nil n my next best bet will be P1. However the admission tests require a sit-down 2-3 hours doing math, English n Chinese. Does anyone know what do they test? Writing essays? Comprehension? Easy addition? I'm really worried as I know my daughter has certainly not reach this level yet. She has not even started writing yet! Except for alphabets n numbers not to mention writing essay or reading!
We are here in Hong Kong now with no school to go to till the next intake for P1 which is sept 2013. Her interview n tests will be in march n honestly, I have no confidence at all although I do have a few months to prepare her but I hope someone can share with me what exactly do SIS test the children on so I can better prepare her.
This has been particularly stressful for us. I hope someone can enlighten us.... TIA!
