“How did the interview go?”
It’s a question that peppers conversations daily across the island and beyond, here in The Kong.
You probably think I’m talking about a job interview – for a grown-up right?
Wrong! I’m talking about interviewing a two year old.
Yes – a very small person who can barely communicate (verbally anyway).
What’s the job? Well, it’s school! Pre-school even.
To make the cut, you’ve got to pass with flying colours and kids that means no tantrum throwing or displaying even the tiniest hint of separation anxiety!
Yep! Forget the days of choosing a school based on how close it is for the kids to walk and then popping into the classroom for a quick ‘meet and greet’ with little Johnny’s teacher. The fact is, in Hong Kong, demand for an education outweighs supply. Significantly.
