My 9 yr old is in top 5 of waitlist list of school of my choice (For Year 5). He has 8 yr old sibling further down the list in year below. The school said maybe a place for him at Easter 2011 but more realistically Sept 2011. Thinking that if all other schools are full as well I could use a combination of different tutors and classes at Sylvan to make up the missing 2 terms rather than put them in a completely different school for one or two terms? Do people do homeschooling as a short term measure? This could be supplemented with lots of playdates and after school sports so they don't feel lonely. Any thoughts? What are my chances of finding a good unemployed teacher who could also cover the National Curriculum part time?
No option of Corporate Debentures.
We are coming from overseas so would also be a good opportunity to get them started in Mandarin and target any weak areas. Does this sound do-able??
