Re: Is it acceptable to assault a 2yr child in public?

Yesterday, whilst shopping in Isetan Parkway Parade, I witnessed a Singaporean man push his 2yr old daughter over and then strike her across the face two times. This was in front of many other shoppers who just looked on 'gorking'. I screamed at him to stop and confronted him but he struck her agai...

I'm answering the question the OP asked on what is the difference between the schools. No offense intended unless it's offensive to have international schools in Singapore who employ foreign teachers.

What grades/subjects are the local teachers teaching at Chatsworth, ISS and OFS?

really? which international schools employ local teachers? I would think parents paying mega $$$ for international teachers would be kicking up a fuss if this was so.

some of them are close to the mrt line but there are many that are not. It's a big rectangle shape with a pool in the middle and only one section is along the mrt line. So there are units there where you wont see/hear the mrt. Definitely worth a look.

I am actually amazed at the huge lines at the cash deposit teller machines. Surely it would be so much easier and faster to use online banking.

I think there may be some-thing not right. It could be a variety of things one of them ADHD, a friends daughter will misbehave badly when she has had colouring in food. I think you need to research on the net some of these things that can cause nice kids to not cope and therefore misbehave. My older...

we didn't give any-one our home number as we use mobile phones all the time. The only people that call our home number are myself and my husband. If we are both at home and some-one rings - it's telemarketers and we have never given a card or number to any-one :( we probably get 2 to 3 calls a week.

You put your son in an awful situation by putting him into an English speaking school where he wouldn't understand a word. I am not sure why you would do that? My advice for you would be to spend time teaching him English, get a tutor. Obviously you have some English skills so you can also help with...

I agree with the suggestions made by the above poster, Rosemount raised its fees and now charges the same fees as schools with much better facilities. One World International school also offers 2, 3, 4, or 5 days.

UWC east campus will be moving up near Tampines so you will be closer to there if you are here for the long term. One World Interna...

just googled it - there is a Changi campus also. I was looking for houses out east a while ago and kept finding ones "near the japanese school." The condos advertising were in Tampines/Pasir Ris.

I didn't realise the main campus is out west!
