Anyone in my situation? I'm a Canadian born chinese, kids born locally. As parents, we want our children to learn chinese so therefore, looking into going the local route for Primary schools. However, it has been challenging trying to enrol my son in all these 'classes' he 'needs' to take to prepare him for the entrance/interviews of some of these schools! Also, trying to DECIDE what school would be appropriate. I've been talking to only a handful of mothers who seem to push their kids into 2-3 classes after schools hours. Is that really necessary? Is this what the schools are really looking for?? I've been told that I shouldn't go back to Canada for this summer (as we do EVERY YEAR) since it would intefere with classes that he 'should' be taking to prepare for the interviews?? Can anyone share their advice or experience in getting into local schools. Much appreciated.
