Frequently Asked Questions
The general rule is that the child does not need to be of Chinese origin and he or she can join the Mandarin School once they are in Year 1 of their day school. However, we could only accept children where their learning will be supported at home. From past experience, we find children without the additional Chinese language support at home tend to lag behind those with the appropriate support. These supports entail going through homework or tasks set. Since lessons are only carried out once a week, the teachers are not able to provide extra support to individuals during lessons.
What is the minimum and maximum age for my child to join the school ?
The child will need to have good concentration levels and basic handwriting skills due to the intensive nature of learning Mandarin. We recommend the child should be attending at least Year 1 in their day school. From experience, we find they settle in easier and are more receptive in class. The maximum age is 16 years old.
