Singaporean-Chinese.. they're oh-so-politically correct in some aspects ... until you get a peek at their social media groups.
But ... ditto for Singaporean-Indians too ... Everyone passive-aggressively hates each others guts, because they are better than the other group.
Both the groups will then stab you in the face and kick you in the balls if you suggest that they hate each other, because the party line is 'we're integrated'.
I think the kids are more mature about this ... but then I don't have any significant data points there other than some friend's kids who seem well adjusted and open minded.
shri alludes to. My observation is that at our kid's school, the vast majority of ESF students are local, where the family also holds a foreign passport. Native home languages are predominantly Cantonese or Mandarin, certainly not English (from the name English Schools Foundation).
It's for parents who want a non local curriculum option, that will give their kids English fluency.
Mind you, this is a data point, observed from my visits and my interactions around the bus stop. Other schools in other ESF catchment areas could be skewed differently.
Well, non-HK passport holders. So even taking into account the locals with foreign passports, majority of students would be actual foreigners, no?
