Hi,
My daughter has been accepted to Grade 1 in CDNIS and Year 1 in Harrow. We are now trying to figure out what is best for her. Any thoughts?

I know the curriculum is different.  So any thoughts on IB vs AL also welcomed.
I Presume the culture is different too, and wonder what would suit her more.

How can you tell what school would be a good fit for your child?

Thanks in advance

Since my son had the interview last week, may I ask did they give you the result through email or mail?

I got a phone call... but I think it was to explain why they offer grade 1 instead of what we applied for. The actual offer letter have not yet recieved.

Interesting. Does it mean yr child will be the one yr younger than most if not all kids in Grade 1 (CDNIS)?

Yes that is another one of the factors that is affecting our choice.
She will be the youngest in CDNIS but one of the oldest at Harrow.
I think she prefers and will be happier to be the youngest as she is more mature and find kids her own age "Babyish". Or perhaps as kids get older I hope that delvelopment difference isn't as much and she may still be happy being of the oldest.

Any thoughts from parents experiences on this would be most welcomed.

Actually she is sept baby and cut off date is Aug so she could be just a little younger that some of the kids in her own class if she goes to CDNIS

兩間學校。。。一個係港島南。。。一個係新界西。
我會先建議比較近的一家,似終小一年紀比較小。

一般來說,AL比IB田鴨D,英式比較重紀律。

無錯,我估住港島跟本就不會考慮Harrow

Have closed friend’s child studying in Harrow now and a cousin of mine was studying in CDNIS. Here is my thought:

Both schools are great school, but Harrow seem like a fame to go because of its Uk background. My friend’s kid like reading so much but I don’t know if is just kid’s or overall students’ Practice. He is very polite and well behaved and very gentleman. Not sure about academic but according to my previous school visit, school facilities are great and expanding. And seem like more mainlanders prefer it because of location and it’s fame.

CDNIS emphasises more on personal development, quality teachers and great school facilities as well. Happy school and very chitchat character. Seem school has more focus on chinese.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Both schools carries different culture and i would ask which one sit your child more?

留意,英國學校會除著年級上升上課時間會增加。哈羅在小一時已比一般國際學校長,除著年級上升有部分日子會去到6至7點,最後會進入寄宿生活。所以如果家住港島而唔寄宿會好辛苦。

Thanks for your comments and replies.

Harrow is better for us in terms of location.
IB vs AL : guess its just too early to say which would suit her more.

本人會建議你選最近的一間,原因是車位程太長小朋友番學好易無精神。如果你很喜歡CDNIS,我會建議你搬。

仲有你可以問下小朋友感覺,我認為兩間都好好。
