After a long summer break, many parents are now busy planning the next phase of their child’s learning – entering primary school. Choosing a primary school is a big decision for parents. Preparing their child for the transition can be daunting. In light of this, the CDC held a “Primary 1 Admission Talk” for both the parents in CDC and Watchdog on 23rd August 2016. The talk aimed to give parents information and tools to choose a school that best fits their child’s needs, as well as prepare the family and their child for potential challenges that they may face in the transition.

The talk was led by our Chief Executive, Virginia Wilson, and Head of Psychological Services, Dr. Yvonne Becher. Parents were given useful tips on school options. Our Lead Teacher, Evita, Psychologist, Isabel, and Special Educational Needs (SEN) Teacher, Jessica, also advised parents on the differences between international schools and local schools. The talk was received with great engagement and enthusiasm with lots of questions during the Q&A session. We are pleased the talk has helped parents in making this big decision.
