Hi, 我已經報咗hillside K1, 有幾個問題想請教下:

1)請問學校分幾多個category?
2) 我同我先生識English & Cantonese, 而我個     仔淨係識English (form 上面都係咁填),咁會係邊個category?
3) 係咪唔一定每個報嘅小朋友都有得play visit? Playvisit 即係interview?

Thanks a lot!

What do u mean category ? 唔明。play visit 也可以理解成interview, 大部分IS 都用play visit 呢個字眼

唔好意思講唔清楚。即係學校會將報名學生分類為category 1, 2.. etc.

想知道有分幾多個category 同埋自己仔仔係屬於邊個。

Thanks!

我估你冇去school tour ,或Esf kinder admission talk. 佢地話冇咁様分,有外藉人士問外國人有冇priority or advantage , 佢地publicly 答冇。咁我想問你地大人英文是否native 呢?點解小朋友只識英文呢?

For kinder admission , 除了有sibling 等等有priority 人士,所有applicants 都係同一組別,以random number 決定。wks campus 近幾年都in 晒所有applicants , 聞說hillside 用random number 選人去play visit.


如果以wks Esf 計,小朋友pass 到play visit ,即可以用英文effective 地接受教育,咁就看random number 去收人了。

The 'category' system is no longer in use.

Just a warm reminder, Esf 支持小朋友學好母語,所以小朋友識廣東話係唔會減分。反而一些local 家庭,父母英文不是native , (play visit 老師一定知),強行在家只說英文,反而可能有壞印象。當然,如果你們的英文native , 在家只說英文當然冇問題啦

the following messages are from the RC administrator. I captured them from a forum in Facebook.

If I may: when asked about your child's first language, please do NOT put English if it is not the case. ESF ceases to focus on English first and welcomes a mother-tongue-first approach believing that only when built on a strong mother tongue can a child develop a strong 2nd language (Englsih, in most of the cases). A MTD (mother tongue deprived) case is no favor to anyone, least the child. Please believe me when I sincerely advise you young parents to embrace your own language/heritage. If you are not a native English speaker, please do not limit yourself to English when speaking to your child. At this young age, they need all your guidance, inspiration and stimulation to fully develop .... and imagine if you are not even using your mother tongue to give them 100% of you (and more) ..... I often wonder about so many 'language delay cases' we encounter at the admissions.... in most of the case, the children are not raised by their parents' first language. I wonder if there are connections? Maybe yes, maybe not. It is not the point here. Just think!! Why deprive the child the pleasure of understanding everything YOU know through YOUR language? They are YOUR child, they should speak YOUR language first!!

P.S. Scenario one: Child A and Child B demonstrate exactly the same level of English proficiency (not native and with some EAL issues) during the interview (when it really counts, not what said on the application form anyway). Child A is a self-claimed 'first' (or even the ONLY) language English child and Child B is not. Child B actually shows us the potential of a good bilingual case and Child A a question of whether there is a solid foundation of mother-tongue for him/her to build on. (In most of the cases, none of the parents is the first language English speaker but 'insist' to use English raising the child and deprive the child the real mother tongue.)

The Cat 1 & 2 system has been abolished for a few years already so you don't need to worry about it.
"Native" is not an absolute measure, how native is native? Could 河國榮's Cantonese be considered native? What about 喬寶寶 or 陳明恩's Cantonese? Would we think there is anything wrong if 河國榮 decides to speak only Cantonese to his children? So just exercise common sense, if your English is as good as 河國榮's Cantonese, by all means use it with your child, even if exclusively, but if it is more like Mr "Try our breast", then better don't.

We fully understand ESF only look for good proficiency of the applicants on admission interviews. As parents we can only choose what we think is the best for our kids( english as 1st language ) in order to secure a place for them in IS)

I think it depends on the individual kids and how's the English level of the parents (though it's non-native). Some kids can really handle both languages at same time but some kids don't. And I have seen an ESF dad in the playroom supervising kids who can only repeat one single line " I don't think that's a good idea ". I really think the dad should  change back to Cantonese for benefit of better communications with the kids and for more efficient parenting.
