Information & Parenting Tips for College Parents
Transition to Junior College
The transition from secondary school to junior college is an important milestone for your child. Our aim is to build on your child’s strong foundation, and prepare him/her well for university and beyond. These two years are thus crucial in developing your child’s independence and ability to adapt, for a fulfilling and engaging life.
To achieve our aim, we need your help and support.
Getting a new school year off to a good start can positively impact your child’s attitude, confidence, and performance, both socially and academically.
All our students soon learn to adapt to a more rigorous and structured GCE A-Level curriculum. They also learn to confront the demands and expectations associated with preparing for an important national examination. Other than the academic rigor, your child may face a more hectic schedule from co-curricular activities (CCAs), especially during national competitions, or when preparing for school projects or drama productions. As a young adult, it is important for your child to learn to manage his or her time effectively, as well as strike a good balance between studies and non-academic activities. Here, a positive mind-set can help your child to navigate the transition successfully.
Different students develop different coping strategies. You can help by encouraging your child, planning ahead, and being realistic. As partners, we also need you to support our teachers who are committed to seeing our students succeed. This website will provide you with more information to guide your child on his/her transition.
