we moved out here 3wks ago, have put a deposit down in the g.a.u english school for my son who is 5yrs old. it is quite expensive at 200 p/m, although we were willing to pay that. the only downside is the travelling distance twice a day 5 days a wk. There is a turkish school just round the corner from where i live which is free, but they finish at 12pm and would be loosing out on a lot of education i think. i am also worried because he cannot speak any turkish and it is a turkish run school, although there are a few english kids there. someone told me there is another school in belapase which is a bit closer than g.a.u. but i am really stuck on where to send him. could anyone recommend a good school please.............

Apologises if I am wrong, but would your childs education been a priority when deciding where to purchase a property, the state schools have a very good reputation and i am sure your child will fit in and start to teach you Turkish within a week, after 12pm your child can have the benefit of studying on your PC and more importantly after a year he will be able to name all the shrubs and plants in the area and tell you which are edible and what medicinal values they have, something that UK kids regretable dont know (most don't know where milk comes from)!!

A bit of a stereotypical sweeping generalisation from a teacher... not a good start to one's education...

Sorry you can delete as appropriate - sum, all, most, a few, a couple, the minority, the majority, a large sample, a small sample, above average, below average, 10%, 50%, 99% of UK (stereotypically) school children (generally) don't know where milk comes from.



Happy Now!?

The first thing I must pick you up on is the word sum used in the context you have the spelling is some. I have worked in a school in the UK for over 15 years and for a good majority of that time approx 40 - 50% of our pupils were either from Turkey or Northern Cyprus. Yes they came with their inadequacies but thats where the role of the educator comes in. We now have children from all over the world attending our school who have never seen a live cow so you can generalise that lots of children do know that children know the milk comes in a container from the supermarket!

Jackeen,

That is or that's but not "thats"... what ever happened to punctuation..



What are we to make of.... "We now have children from all over the world attending our school who have never seen a live cow so you can generalise that lots of children do know that children know the milk comes in a container from the supermarket! " ?

ouch! What are we to make of the statement? To generalise that it is only english children who do not know where milk comes from is tosh!

Yeah, I know what you were saying but the way you said it just does not make for readable English... re-read your last sentence and see what I mean...



I still can't make sense of "children do know that children know"...

Ah, that will get you every time... I keep telling my children to review their work before submitting it but in the rush.....



My daughter once had a school report from her Primary school in which the English teacher made no less than four errors in one paragraph!

I am just in too much of a hurry to get everything I want down and yes, I know you are correct. I am usually quite good a spotting other peoples mistakes though, quite a trait in my family. Four of us work in schools but not one a teacher.
