Thanks for the info. Yes I did get a good feel for the school when we had a look around. My older son and I did the tour, he thought it was great too. His main thing is he can't wait to start playing rugby for the school. He is very athletic.

We have the school books for the one starting in P1, but am waiting until next week to get his uniform (I actually need him here to try them on to see what fits) although we did order the name tags.

Yes I do have some questions about how things "operate" at the school, as very different to Australia. What is the best way to contact you.

thanks again :)

my boy is at P1 in pei tong, too! not blond, as he's eurasian, but during the orientation and first days of school when parents were allowed into the school, we saw at least 2 other blond boys--all P1. pei tong might just soon become the tanjong katong primary of the west!

My too are both "dirty" blond and very tall for their age. When we had a look around the school they told us that they had a few foreigners there.

This is all great news, and makes it easier now for the choice we made of school.

First of all, there was no 'Liberal Arts' course offered to Michael Fay. Second, he was expelled from his International School, so obviously the school saw him for what he was -- a troublemaker. Thirdly, that was in 1994, ancient history. Let's see what are we one now... Fourthly, his school has graduated over 3000 students since then.

If anyone really wants to know who is attending any international school, I suggest you go onto their wikipedia site and look in the Notable Alumni section and not get regurgitated sensational information from the biased posters here.

SMS, since we're in Singapore do you call that thing on your shoulder a crisp or is it still a chip? :D C'mon. Michael Fay? What a cheap shot.

Find the right school for your child, your family and your circumstances and don't worry whether it's a local school or an international school. The lines are getting blurred, and really what does it matter?

Gee, I'm only a newbie but I reckon this was a pretty heavy handed reply to a comment that was obviously (to me anyway) tongue-in-cheek.
I wouldn't have thought cyber bullying went on in a forum like this but have to say this is the 2nd example I've read in a very short while. The poster you attacked made a lot of very helpful suggestions and I think you might have taken into account their whole contribution rather than singling out one comment which I really believe you
