SCHOOL REFUSES TO COMMUNICATE ON ADHD STUDENT APPLICATION

While many other parents who are nervous about their children's performance, I have to deal with a different kind of anxiety because of the school inefficiency. My son has a ADHD condition and the school has not been very efficient in getting the approvals in time with no assurance except a call last Friday (after calls to MOE) with a non-committal of "we submitted the application".

Why then does it take so long to be approved when the Dr's report was already given since April? Till now, no response from the Principal.

Time for corporal punishment in schools?

MS CATHERINE Ng's letter ("Timely reminder for 'monster parents' "; last Saturday) reminds me of similar stories I frequently hear from friends whose spouses or children are school teachers. It underscores the great stress teachers face from the exacting demands of not only their schools and the Education Ministry, but also unreasonable and disrespectful parents. Some teachers are chided and blamed when they notify parents of their children's habitual tardiness, refusal to submit homework, misbehaviour and so on.

EX-MARIS STELLA HIGH PRINCIPAL LOSES APPEAL, SENT TO JAIL FOR 5 MONTHS

Former Maris Stella High principal Anthony Tan Kim Hock was packed off to jail for five months on Friday after the High Court dismissed his appeal against conviction and sentence for embezzlement.

The Marist Brother used the money from a school chapel-building fund to renovate Champagnat House, the residence of his Catholic order in Flower Road. The money paid for granite surfacing on walls, stained glass windows and kitchen appliances.
