The idea of best school in singapore comes from her aunt whose daughters are there. She just like the playground and that its an all girls school. And of course she likes the school uniform and the fact her cousin is there.
RGPS has an exchange program in P5, which I think is very good. Even though in 2008, they went to India. But i like her to be independent and to mix with the different cultures in the school. They have quite a good mixtures of nationalities of students over there.
Agreed that there is no gurantee for good schools to be perfect, they will probably have a different set of problems. Like I said earlier, at least the ah lians there speaks English - meaning there are bad hats even in RGPS, but at least they are not the hokkien speaking type. They would probably be speaking vulgar language too like FO, FU... but not NB or CB (sorry for my language).
Going into RGPS will not guarantee her success, but at least the road and direction to success is there. Imagine in an environment where everyone is using laptops and discuss on issues in the papers.... and in an environment where gameboy and pokemon is the hot topic. My gal is very influence by the environment, she likes to observe and follow her peers, so I believe in RGPS you would probably get that kind of effect than in a neighbourhood school.
Just like what Erictan888 said, I want her to be talking about her future plan and her ambition and what she like to be, rather when we going to roller blade and buy new gameboy games. Its just the environment that I am concern, bec I dun support ranking of school (at any level)....... and I also dun support the idea of parents volunteering service.... all these are craps. Cheers and Merry Christmas!!
