Phase 2C: (Updated 21 July 2016)
For all children who are eligible for Primary One in the following year and are not yet registered in a primary school.
Prediction: (21 July 2016)

Phase 2B: (Updated 20 July 2016)
(a) For a child whose parent has joined the primary school as a parent volunteer not later than 1 July 2015 and has given at least 40 hours of voluntary service to the school by 30 June 2016
(b) For a child whose parent is a member endorsed by the church / clan directly connected with the primary school
(c) For a child whose parent is endorsed as an active community leader
