Headache?
Take 2 Panadol Extra and then take a nap.
When you wake up, choose the one suit your child and u also feel comfortable with.

Dont know if you are comparing SJS and RC but definitely RC is better on the 'hardware' side.  SJS has a longer history and is more traditional than RC so nothing should really go wrong.  But then RC will be a more adverturous version and might be good for some.  Although SJS has the biggest chinese poplulation among any other ESF schools, I seldom hear its children talking in Cantonese (or any other languages).  The school does provide a natural environment for children to communicate in English.  As others have said...pick one that you are most comfortable with.  I had experience with teachers from both schools and they were equally friendly and professional.. that IS for sure!!  I had the same choice 2 years ago and I chose ESF as the RC campus was a bit 'too' big for my daughter.  Good luck.

Knowing that ESF primary has so many campuses (about 9 campuses) in addition to PIS, I see they should have enough capacity to absorb all the ESF kinder graduates.  How come I heard many parents complain that their kids graduating from ESF kinders may not be able to get a seat in its primary?

Well simply because ESF schools have to accept kids from elsewhere as well.

The reason is simple.
ESF/PIS only grant you priority to the interview. You HAVE TO PASS THE INTERVIEW.

So that means I might not get into ESF primary schools even I am graduated from ESF kindergarten?

Do you know are there any extra points will be added if they are ESF kindergarten graduates? Thanks!!!

ESF 幼稚園從來都唔係直升 ESF 小學, 係要面試的.
如果唔 PASS 面試, 當然唔會入到 ESF 小學.

Just priority interview.  English proficiency, maturity, social skills are evaluated equally amongst candidates.  Of course, there's categories and priority within categories.

My personal experience not with RC or SJS is the child will be interviewed by 2 teaching staff and asked to draw something and talk about the drawing.  Responsiveness of the child and proficiency in English will be observed.  Creativity enhances chances. Priority will be given according to category and if the child has sibling at school.

my friend's son is in secondary section now. At that time, her mum told me that teachers in Beacon Hill are more experienced than in RC.

I heard a few declined the offer of Shatin Junior/Beacon Hill and stayed in RC.  Meanwhile, I also heard a few switched to other IS.  It depends on oneself.

hi people 3,

congratulations to you!  I hope I can have this kind of headache later...
Well, it's difficult.  But I think you should visit them and see which one you feel more comfort with.  I think different parent will pick different school, so pick the one you think it suits your kid more! and good luck on your choice

Could you share which kinder is your kid studying, esf kinder?  and do you mean SJS? well, do you know SJS picks students from?
thank you so much!! I'm headache, too... help...
