[With various Singapore campus issues related to teaching, other surveyed topics, infrastructure and transport continuing to be ignored or pushed under the carpet, this talk of more 'horizontal growth' is not making any parent salivate. This, by the way, includes even the PSG appointees who will privately admit as much ! Cost increases have already been alluded to in the 'fee hike' mail from Kaustubh Bodhankar, and this will only make it worse. What is the guarantee that the Vietnam venture will not become another Auckland ?
So, we demand that GIIS Singapore principals and GIF work together giving first priority to delivering the promised quality for GIIS Singapore. This, before anything else !
We had already suggested as early as November 2007, that 90% of the fees collected should be spent locally, which would then make the GIIS schools not-for-profit, and at the same time help to improve infrastructure, teaching and transport by proper allocation of funds.
