            ========= 升中統一派位全攻略 ========              

本週二(二十五日),小六生的家長將收到升中統一派位的選校表格及資料,開始為填滿三十個選校志願煩惱。

家長選校要量力而為,因材選校。這裡提供三種不同成績的選校攻略:

子女成績優異的選校策略
首七個志願要謹慎。若子女有能力讀英文中學,可首五個志全選第一級的英中。首志願可大膽選校本身成績略高的中學,而門當戶對的學校作二、三志願;中文中學競爭較少,家長可選質素較好的中中排在第四志願或以後。

子女成績中等的選校策略
首十個志願謹慎。首選略高於本身成績的中學,作為首志願,當買個希望,將質素較好的中文中學置放第二志願,其餘志願選回門當戶對的中學。


子女成績較差的選校策略
首十個志願謹慎。多選門當戶對的中文中學,可集中選一些新開辦的學校,因有發展潛力。建議預先報讀校風較佳的直資或私立中學作後備。

◎ 攻略之外,尚有六忌:

◎ 一忌不量力而為,沒理會子女校內成績名次,不知道原來電腦派位先後主要取決於這名次,容易浪費前列選校機會。

◎ 二忌忘了最少要填十五至二十個選校志願,填太少志願,讓電腦亂派。

◎ 三忌男女校不分,若誤為女兒選男校,電腦會自動取消該選校志願,浪費一個機會。

◎ 四忌一校到底,全部志願填選一間心儀中學,或首五個志願填寫同一間中學,以為可增加命中機會,其實反而浪費眾多選校志願。

◎ 五忌一意孤行,無參考子女就讀小學的派位往績。

◎ 六忌選校表格無簽名,信不信由你,母年都有家長忘記在表格上簽名,結果浪費腦力,因為政府規定,沒有簽名的選校表格,不作處理。

◎ 最後,提醒家長週二取得供填寫選校次序的「中一派位選擇學校表格時」,應即時核對以下資料:

◎ 學生編號,應與小六學生證或學生資料貼紙上的學生編號相符。

◎ 派位學校網,應與獲派發的中學一覽表及附加資料表左上角的代號符合。

◎ 其他資料,如學生姓名、性別及就讀學校等有否錯誤。

◎ 家長可參考本社製作的「全港中學排位表」,了解各中學在地區和全校的實力位置,以助選校。

V. 家長信箱

( 任何升學問題,歡迎提出,請電郵: hked@hked.org 或傳真(852)2887 2519 )

(1) My Son's Problem

問﹕ 
My son is now sudying in P.1 of a famous school. His position in class after examination is around 30-32 out a total of 40 pupils.My worry is that he is small compared to most of his classmates. He is now about 6 years 3 months old while other classmates are usually older than 7. My can demonstrate good memory in studying but rather weak in language application. Do 教搜社專家 think the age difference is the major cause on the result? Would this age effect become less or even more critical when he further grows up and face more complicated syllabus? Please give your valuable advice. Do you think repeating the P.1 class is one solutaion that may be considered? 
(Kei)

答﹕  

有很多因素影響小朋友的學習,年齡可能是其中之一。成長綜合服務中心主席黃重光教授曾表示,同班中年紀較輕的小朋友在學習上可能遇到困難,但小朋友成長步伐有快有慢,所以亦要視乎個人發展,您不用過份擔心。 



您最好先向班主任瞭解兒子的學習情況,深入瞭解他在學習上遇到的困難,再諮詢班主任意見,應否替他留級。 



下面是本社邀請遇到類似問題的家長提供的意見,謹供參考。

Mrs Tang:「I am a mother of two and my elder daughter is also studying P.1. For my opinion, If the teacher didn't complain your child have any study problem, let him go. He is now in Primary School not Kinder anymore, repeat may affect him emotionally or psychologically. Don't really use the position to judge your kid, The first or the last one may only have a few marks different. As it is very competitive in Primary and don't forget they are come from different Kindergarten, according to a very experienced teacher say, they will level up when they go to P.3. If at that time, your child still can't cope with others, then you may think some other ways to help him. 


As you said your child is good at memory but weak at language application. Memory is limited, it can help you to learn faster, but you can't also memorize everything. So the best way you can do now, read with him more story books, no matter English or Chinese. Read with him until he found the interest in reading and he will automatically read it himself. My girl is from a Chinese Kinder, now she is in an English Primary School and cope with it quite well. That's the method I used and now she is very keen in reading. 」 

 

Judith:「I think you need not to be too worry. 
I was also the youngest pupil when studying primary school, Actually the principal had told my mother I may need to repeat P1 at that time. 


My position was rate around 30-35 at P1, and at the first seminster of P2, I got position 22, but my result suddenly jump from 22 to No. 2 in the second seminster, and was keeping the first to third position from P3 to P6. 

Don't let your children repeat in his primary school if not neccessary, it may affect his emotional/ pyschological status. 


The thing we can do is be patient and take care of our children, 
and wait until he/she "開竅", they will give you a fruitful result because of your love and care. 


Never push children to achieve, but assist them when they require your help.」

(2) Think International kindergarten and YMCA international kindergarten

問﹕  I have one 3-years old kid, I would like to know more information regarding parents' comment about Think International kindergarten in Laguna City and YMCA international kindergarten. (William)

答﹕   

Paul: 「My son is studying in YMCA Int'l Kindergarten. YMCA is a very good kindergarten for young kids, although they only situated on the 2nd floor of the building, the kids do have chance to go to the Activity Room, the Gym, the library regularly. 


They only have one half hour class once a week for Mandarin, so I dont think it will help the kids much about Chinese. For us, we buy Chinese exercise book for my son to practise reading and writing.


They do not have any homeworks but they have a lot of classworks to do, the teacher will return all to you by the end of each term, you will see a lot of improvements of your kid. 


The overall school environment is very friendly and comfortable, they decorated the board and the class room periodically to match their theme of study. 


The teacher is all qualified (as far as I know), they are all very affectionate and patient to the kids. 


We also have very close relationship with the teacher since we have a communication book so we can talk to each other very often. 


The school also arranges a lot of activities, like the school picnic, the Christmas show, the Easter show, we have the chance to participate as well. 


YMCA does not have any examination for the kids, but they will do the assessment every term. 


My son enjoys studying in YMCA very much, he learns a lot of things and sings a lot of songs.」
