Questions answered:
Q: Are there any suggestions or guidance for parents so that we could brighten the future of our child?
A: Choose a good school. If not a public school, consider sitting scholarship tests for academic, music and/or general excellence scholarships. It's fine to apply for multiple or all types of scholarships. Prepare early and practice and practice. Considering using a private tutor or going to a coach school. Visit the following links for more information about scholarships:



Q: If public school what are the requirements?
A: I think it would be you live in the school zone. That's the requirement in Victoria.

Q: If private school what are the requirements and how to get assistance in fees (scholarships etc.)?
A: As mentioned at the beginning of this post, try to get a scholarship.

Q: How to get admission in the best high schools if we are not in the Zone?
A: If you are not in the school zone, you can consider open entry private schools or catholic schools. Your children can apply for academic, music and general excellence scholarships. Preparation and practice is the key.

My Son is in Year 4 this year (9 years old). We are already making him practice some books and the selective test papers. Please advise if it is good to do the preparation lightly this year without giving him much stress and get serious when he gets in year 6. Please advise if on line tutoring is good or should we go to some personal tutors.
Q: Is there any cost effective yet good way to teach our child without giving him much stress?
A: The earlier you start, the better. Your child will be outstanding in his class. This will boost his confidence. Then he will push himself. This would be much easier for parents. I think you need to coach him seriously from year 5. You can buy some practice books from a bookstore or second-hand books from our website. The most cost effective way is parents spend lots of time and coach their child. This is simply because you will understand his needs and teach him effectively. Then comes with coaching school as it’s cheaper than private tutors. But if you don’t have time but want very effective result, you can use one-on-one private tutors for particular subjects or areas including music instruments.
