dear CDNIS parents
Ccan anyone share with me about the actual pros and cons of school? I have concern about the teacher quality and Chinese program. Are they teaching traditional or simplified Chinese?  Do teachers care about each kid’s personal development? Does school encourage readings?

Is there lots of leavers every year? (Especially pre-reception to prep) and why?

Great thanks!

My son only joined CDNIS (reception) since Sep, below commends are very personal. maybe some ppl feel differently: -

Pros: 1. superb admin (after join the school); 2. care for kids their own development with their own pace; 3. play based learning- nurture creativity; 4. teach them be responsible and respect; 5. my son very happy to go to school.
(2, 4 - can only say for my son's class. guess really depends on the class teacher)

Cons: 1. school fee expensive; 2. school bus not too good; 3. need to wake up at 6am; 4. if off work late can't see the kid much

你想知什麼, GRADE 1 - 12 , 邊個grade ?

老師質素 -中間啦

中文算教得深. GRADE 6 時 寫250 字文(好少少的中文班)

一般 ,  正路中文是教繁體, 好差那班(與鬼仔一齊上堂)才用中文簡體

去到GRADE 12 , 中文書 是本地中學的書, 早幾年

如grade 11,12 , hl lang b chinese  用中三,四, 本地中學的中文書

學校積極鼓勵閱讀


grade 4開始自己會去睇故事書, 開始自行走入圖書館.,

圍內的同學大概5天左右看一本(100-120頁), 當然有人唔太睇書

但大部份(>50%) 都養成看書的習慣


收你就讀, 難入的

grade 7  後開始多人走

教的野,開始難

grade 6  或前, assessment 簡單, 功課少
如果收, 我強烈建議入讀

走的人唔多, 好多一齊讀上來14年



要CDNIS IB 成績每科細分, 我要搵搵

Appreciate for your comments! Very personal and detail! But they are valuable to me!
My son is now at another school K1 but seem like he doesn’t enjoy much. Wanna see if any other school suit him more. Wanna have caring teachers in good teaching quality while not loosing chinese too much, seem it is difficult to find.

If you want to find a school that the kids enjoys, then CDNIS is a very good choice.  My son cried when he could not go to school because he was sick.  So you can imagine how much he loves the school!But there is one thing that the parents need to consider before accepting the offer.  Don't ask what has he learned in the school, it is a play-based school.  He learns things but may be different from the other schools.  The teacher has bought them to the car park and let them see the engine in the Prep year and a field trip to the bakery in Grade 1. Also they are taught about the human body and the environment resources which I don't remember I have learnt any of these in my Grade 1.

小學中文分4個stream, 最低二個是簡體, 其中低中之低就真係比d新手學. 高一班的簡體其實會每年加深, 所以會有個mix of 中國人同西人讀.  最高2個level係繁體, 4年班都會讀下孔子生平的文章, 比本地學校當然仲係不足, 但我覺得最主要係因為中文係is係一科學科, 而非immersion, 所以學校教得再深, 應用上始終比唔上LS, 都係靠父母自己在家輔助.繁體班都會有西人或非中國人, 但比例明顯少好多.

到grade 7 and 8, 學校會再細分中文程度, 為IB鋪排.  若讀最高level中文的, 可選讀extra Mandarin代替法文, 絫IB 中文 Lang A準備. 其他學生基本上沒得揀, 全體上法文課. 若英文寫作或數學不達標的, 會被學校提議不用上法文課,而是上math或寫作workshop, 師生比例1:6.  真正自主選科和細分其他學科程度是G9開始.

基本上直至grade 3/4 流動性不太大, 五六年班會多d (每年年尾五六年級各有十幾人走), 但小學基本上每級都人滿的. Grade 7 則由Grade 6原本125人會加開一班至150人, 所以中學會比較多位. 2018 Grade 6 畢業, 會走十鬆個人,再加開一班, 所以2018/19 Grade 7會有卅幾個新生.


老師質素...我唔知如何衡量, 小學我覺幾好.  老師都好清楚孩子性格, 學術問題, 有耐性.  中學我暫不清楚.

debenture 對入學沒有大助力, 所以學校都不會特別推.

this year's provider is Sun Bus.  last yr was Kwoon chung and the coming year also Kwoon Chung.

Kids told me Kwoon chung bus was smelly.  They are happy with Sun bus.  I hope the school has complained to Kwoon Chung about cleaning up the bus.  

No issue with bus nanny since my kids are older and they couldn't care less, but they told me their nanny is nice.

Bus schedule is super early, but that is probably to avoid traffic.  by 7:10 to 7:15, a queue starts to form at the bottom of 南朗山道 coz many ppl drive their kids to school.  So if bus arrives before then they can avoid traffic but that means kids getting up early.  But it's better to spend time at school than staying in car, queuing up - depends on your point of view.  for younger kids, the schedule is a bit harsh I agree.

Can anyone share with me the reason of buying or not buying debenture? The debenture is now 1.1m, capital levy 35k, which will increase yearly.
My thoughts is 1.1m in bank saving cannot earn 35k interest, the only risk is the price drop of the debenture that is not too possible.
Am I thinking too simple ?

i talked to the person responsible for debentures at the school.  Debentures only useful if you're placed on the waitlist - they'd consider you first if a spot comes up. they don't help much in the first round. as of 2018-19, a debenture is worth 1.1m but there's a long waitlist to buy the debenture. the person also told me there's an extreme case where a kid couldn't get in after trying 3 straight years even though the parents are debenture-holders.

on the other hand, citizenship definitely helps. my daughter didn't do very well at the interview and was placed on the waitlist. we got a call back with an offer sometime in may. but we'd already made other plans so didn't take it.

It depends on how many 1.1m do you have, and your investment plans. I’m not good In calculations, below figures are estimation only.

ASSUME you send your kid to the school in 3 years old, and graduate in 18 years old, the debentures value is 2.2m when your kid is graduated.

1. Debenture, the school will share 50% of your profit, and deduct admin fee, around $5000. That means you can get 1.645m when your kid grad, you earn 545K, that means you have less than 3% annual return in compound rates, based on 545k profit.

2. Capital levy, assume no increment, you need to pay 525k without return.

1.1m + 545k + 525k = 2.17m, annual return is 4.7%, that means if you have an investment for 1.1m which earns more than 5% per annum in 15 years, you should buy capital levy instead of debentures.
