是否選擇寄宿:
我係會比孩子寄宿的, 因為我住新界。
Many S1 kids are graduates of the SSC Prep. School.  If yours is a new comer (like my daughter), she has to make new friends.  This is particularly important if he / she is going to be a boarder.

Boarder's life can train your kid more disciplined and independent, at the expense of his / her academic result in many cases.  You may need to consider the arrangement if your kid has to attend private tuition classes after school.  The school teachers on duty during the two preparatory sessions (compulsory for S1 and S2 students) may not assist the students much.  The house rules are quite strict e.g. can only use mobile phones after school and before 6 pm; and from 9:30 pm to 10:00 pm ...  Your kid may have to learn how to maintain good relationships with his / her room-mates and hall mates.    S1 boarders need to do physical exercise twice a week in the early morning (6:30 am), even during winter.  And no heater is allowed in the bedrooms for safety sake.  Students have to join mandatory boarding programme during S1 and S3.  So your kid can try the boarding life and see whether he can adapt to.
To me, I prefer the more discipline life for children. The purpose for allowing my son to have boarding is to train him to be more independent. On the other hand, I am quite worried about his academic performance. At present stage,I need to supervise him sometimes so as to make sure his "test/ examination marks" can reach at certain level.
I hope he can manage himself!
我住新界, 我打算給兒子寄宿,另外我朋友分別住荃灣及藍田也有給子女寄宿, 我想若不是住港島(有校車/公共交通公具直達的地方),走讀生都會辛苦。
唔知你地寄宿係咪安排好D, 我問午膳訂飯都攪左幾日先攪掂!!  初初幾日, 阿仔都唔開心, 食飯唔知去邊度食, 學樂器又要學完先食午飯, 老師們又惡, 好在而家好DD!!
要寄宿12星期, 當中兩星期係暑假寄宿. 個人認為唔錯既安排

學業問題:
The exam is quite demanding.  Should be hard working and self-learning.

樂器練習室:

There're several music rooms available for students, may be on first come first served basis.  They're always occupied.  You may consider learning muscial instruments at school so that your son can have more time to practise.  Boarders aren't allowed to play musical instruments inside the dormitory and the areas nearby.

校車問題:

學校有校車,路線都非常多,可以上網查詢或問校巴工作人員
You may obtain school bus information when you are ordering school uniform during the registration of S1 place in July.  Alternatively, you can call the School Office for assistance.  But the school bus operator wasn't helpful when I talked to them


make sure that your kid can go home on his / her own as the students cannot catch the school bus after school since they need to participate various kinds of ECA and pull-out / pull-up programmes usually.

提前適應中一學業:

SSC has its own textbooks for Integrated Humanities and Intergrated Science.  IH is a little bit hard, but not as hard as English Literature.
My daughter is now reading Oliva Twist.  Don't know other materials which she has learnt. But some are poems as far as I can "understand"...

樂器考試:

Q:"Instrumental Class Exam"是否當音樂科考試嗎?
每個學生都要考?考甚麼樂器?

A:Yes, instrumental class exam. is music exam - an exam. of musical instrument.  Not necessarily follow the school calendar. My daughter took it already, rather than in late May.
Every S1 and S2 student (don't know S3 coz my daughter is S2 now) have to learn a kind of musical instrument, except piano.  It doesn't count as an ECA.  Every student has to participate not less than 1 but not more than 2 ECA during the same academic year.  Lunch break is about an hour but I don't think they can have much spare time to learn musical instrument esp. boarders.
Students can choose whatever kinds of muscial instruments, incl. Chinese ones.
Q:咁我仔未學樂器,是否等學校安排,到時再諗學乜樂器会較好?
因為宜家我同佢去琴行睇,除咗piano,佢都唔知揀乜好。

A:You can consider allowing your kid to learn the musical instrument now.  If your kid wants to be taught by SSC's music teacher later on, he can join the classes at the beginning of the forthcoming academic year.  My daughter has been learning flute since S1 after she had quitted playing violin.  Now she's learning guitar too - just fof fun.
Q:如果我的兒子想學長笛, 當S1後老師會不會叫他學其它樂器?

A: As far as I know, the students are free to choose the instruments, except piano.  Yet, you can ask the music teacher during the orientation day.  I recalled that during the orientation day for my daughter (in 2010), the teachers explained in details the College's requirements in different subjects and ECAs.

宿舍生活:

Boarders have their own canteen cos. the fee includes meals.  They can't have lunch at another canteen / tuck shop or enjoy the takeaway fastfood.  But don't expect too much about the quality and tastes of the food.

For boarders, they usually do their homework in the dormitories rather than in the library.  One of the reasons is there are limited seats in the library, which are always occupied by higher form students and the library is closed after 5 pm.  Besides, boarders have to collect their clothes once / twice per week from the laundry.  For the basketball fields, students can use them freely as long as they're not used by the school teams.  For swimming pool, boarders' parents need to sign an authorization form permitting the boarders to use the pool during permitted sessions after school.

運動:

The PE lessons are mainly for ball games, swimming and other kinds of sports activities.

My daughter joined the school volleyball team last year coz. she was also in the volleyball team of her primary school.
The PE teachers are in house teachers.  But the College has outside coaches for school teams and ECAs.
有游泳堂, 但我仔都未開始. 但老師要求學生入學前最好游到50米
S1上游泳堂, 有些矇豬豬無帶泳褲, 無得游水.....

精英班:

聽聞,聖小上嘅學生差不多全部去晒兩班精英班。中一外來生第一年是不被編入精英班。
朋友亞女升中二, 話1C及1D係精英班, 不過朋友話精英班未必係好, 因為有些科目/TOPIC, 老師期望同學係叻D, 好多嘢叫他們自己睇, 唔使教, 反而其他班仲教得仔細D.
