Be prepared for longer hours in School for self-directed group work and CCAs. These long hours in School are not required by the School but it is usually the Child who wants to stay back for self-practice or group work.
I would like to hear from SOTA parents, for your kids in their Sec 1...do they stayed late at school till pass dinner hours? 😅
Generally in the lower years they don't stay after dinner hours, most official classes finish before 3-5:30pm on most days. Attached is a reference of one of the classes in Year 1.
