It was Secondary 1 Admission
interview today. I interviewed around 40 students and had the chance of talking
to parents from all walks of life. Some are typical local parents fixing a busy
schedule for their children who are not really enjoying all the music and
sports courses they are thrust into. Then there are some lucky parents who don’t
do anything and yet their children are doing very well in everything including
academic studies and sports. Some parents know nothing about our school while
of course, there are parents who have done extensive research about our school
including site visits and “spying” on our students etc.
To me, all these parents share
one thing in common – they want what they think is the best for their children
in this highly competitive society of Hong Kong.
