As a parent I put a lot of trust in the school educating my child. Sadly with the recent events at the GSIS and the temporary move of the primary school to Ma On Shan. (Temporary even though it is going to be for four years.)I am beginning to question this trust and the motives of the school. There have been numerous meetings, consultations, school visits, beautiful artists impressions of the new school and countless words on the web site about this move and the long term benifits it will have.
The one thing that has not been addressed is how this is tearing the school apart and destroying the ethos of the school. The board is adamant that this move must happen even though there is a large parent population that disagrees and wants to help come up with a more palatable solution. There have been accusations, counter accusations, lawyers have gotten involved and even the press has been supplied with articles but I still have the one question
"Why can the board and the parents not come together as a community of rational, intelligent and connected individuals to create a plan that will satisfy all. This should go a long way in returning some of the trust that has been lost?"
I am interested to hear other peoples views on this matter.
