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.

CAN SG SCHOOLS EVER MIX FOREIGNERS, LOCALS, ELEMENTARY AND SPECIAL NEEDS STUDENTS UNDER ONE ROOF?

There are 250 students, including 12 special needs children who are mixed with the overall student population. It has 58 teachers and 25 staff, which works out to a teachers to students ratio of about 2.3 : 10, and a staff to students ratio of about 1 : 10. The teachers’ salary range from 2.5 to 5.5 million rupiah (S$265 to S$582).

The school is licensed to operate by the Government and has been refusing to take certain government funding for many years, because of the conditions that come with such funding. Needy students also get scholarships to study free of charge. Of the about 250 students – about eight of them are foreigners. No distinction is made between Indonesian and foreign students.

Many graduates from the school keep coming back to be volunteers. I spoke to one who spoke in perfect English, who was full of praise for his experience as a student.
