As topic, it's a new policy adopted by ICS.

I have two kids and going to send both to ICS in the future. However, $190,000 is really NOT a small amount. is there any parents wanna change your mind?

I'm quite upset as ICS is our dream school with good reputation. however for two kids, $320,000 ($130,000 for the second kid) is definately a large amount,  and the main point is THAT IS NON-REFUNDABLE.

hi rororolee,

i was also v. shocked last wk when i rec'd the news. ICS is our dream school since my pregnancy and we had submitted the application when our boy was only 3-4 months old.

i ve done a rough estimation n found that including the non-refundable debenture, the total amount of school fee (not counting other expenses) spent on school fee for 15 yrs education will be around 1.4 M (http://forum.edu-kingdom.com/viewthread.php?tid=2182191&extra=page%3D1). my other worry was there was a substantial increase on the debenture from HK$60,000 to HK$190,000 in 2008. I fully understand the reason for the drastic increase in the debenture and school fee, but I cannot foresee how rapid the rate will be in the coming years. the freq. big jump was indeed quite worrying.

But my husband reminded me that, "It is a matter of "core value". Isn't a very strong spiritual background and a biblical integreted curriculum our main target?.............."

"人心籌算自己的道路,惟耶和華指引他的腳步。"箴言16:9


May God guide us through and let us know if this is the school He prepared for your kids and my kid. :)

HI bakusensei, 我想你也是基督徒吧,我女兒正讀ICS,對我D打工仔來說,ICS學費真係超貴,不過我個女個老師真係好好,好有心,ICS KINDER 的課程係用聖經做Theme的,我諗無一間學校會係咁的,好似講挪亞就教埋彩虹的顏色。。。,相信對女兒係最好的,上帝的恩典夠我地用嘛!

bakusensei,
I'm facing the exact situation as you.  I think what we can do now is pray hard and ask Him to guide us.  Thanks for sharing the verse:
"人心籌算自己的道路,惟耶和華指引他的腳步。"箴言16:9

Not just the new families are upset of the new debenture program; the present ICS families are upset, too, though it does not affect the present ICS families.  We do, we really do and care but we could do nothing to help.  ICS will loose the wholly hearted ICS families to join us.

rororolee,

i think the more important pt is whether kids from ICS will be granted an interview chance for RC (at least in the first round).

my colleague, a parent from ESF kinder (K1), told me that when they questioned the insufficient seats at G1 to cater the newly opened WKS ESF kinder, the ESF kinder principal informed them RC has reserved seats for ESF kinder students.

my fd whose boy is in Think still hasn't got the chance for interview in KJS, nor RC.

u may wish to check that w/ RC parents n non-esf applicants of RC this yr.

hope u find the solution.

pray for u.

Not as good as you think !!!

I don't think this school worth the money. some of Their teachers in primary and secondary are very inexperienced or some are quite old.

Academically they are not good at all. Can you imagine having no science experiments to do in Science lessons? Learning Science like History!! Math teacher always calculated the wrong math.

Many secondary students have left and are planning to leave. Recently several students take drugs and were forced to leave the school........... really not worth the money. It's totally different from years ago.

睇到段新聞覺得很失望,ICS曾是我的dream school,以前聽聞佢以聖經教導和品德行先,學業成績又好,覺得此校很理想.點知而家变得很重$$$$$$$$,而且見過一個由ICS被踢出校的小朋友,他說自己Eng差,故被請離校,セ學校唔係要教好每個學生,將學生不足之處提升的嗎?汰弱留強算甚麼好學校.
本人所見那小朋友很有禮貌,但被ics請離校相信令他自信心大失.
