I was so set on this school in KL for my boy. Bought one packet of fruits to give to this aunty who willingly let us have her Indah Water bill. She didn't have the electricity or water bill in her name coz she never changed it since she bought the place.
So it was really a double bummer for me when....
Hubby called the school and the clerk or whoever it was was so 'pa pai'. Gave him a lecture about geographical distance, utility bill MUST bear parent's name etc. And when he told her we were renting, she said 'then show me your tenancy agreement'. If caretaker then how? 'Sorry....tak boleh pakai.'
On one hand, I kinda pity them. If I was really staying near this school and know of thousands of people pushing to get into this school when they have a reasonable school near their house, I think I would be rather mad too.
And I think these clerks already have a thousand answers for all kinds of reasons and excuses parents think of. In the end, they will just say 'It's up to Kementerian, not us. You just apply lah!'
So....as much as I had initially wanted to send Ah Boy to this KL school, I think I will just settle for one nearer my house. Even if we had to pull strings to get in, I think the chances of getting into this PJ school would be easier.
And well....reputation wise it still seems ok.
Already registered online since it's a PJ school. And now will go over on the 1st.
Lord....guide me in my decisions that Christopher will grow up in an environment that builds a character pleasing to You.
