I am back from my primary 1 registration.... it was raining so DH decided to send me over... thought why so nice of him...haha...
The basketball compound. It was raining heavily outside. The same place where the school children assemble each morning & afternoon for the National Anthem.
Year 2010... i was aware of the Primary 1 registration in year 2011 but did not think too much about it; told myself long way more... fast forward to 2011..
Jan, Feb, Mar, April.... stop...as the months passed by, its time to think abt the registration...and to start doing my homework - which school i had in mind, the location, the academic improvement in that school & the CCAs which would help pull up one's grade.
With so many things to consider, what am I to do?
Relax lah... no need to be so kiasu. New Singaporean parents tend to think that planning for Primary One Registration years in advance is just plain uncool. Some even believe that as long as they are staying near the school, there is no reason why they would not be able to place their children in that school.
Perhaps the following facts would help put things in perspective:
Here's the 2010 edition of our annual Kiasu Analysis of PSLE results.
Finding #1 - Top Honors
Without a doubt, 2010 is likely to be etched in the annals' of Rosyth's history as the Year-When-We-First-Believed. For not only did Alex Tan grab top honors for the school with his red hot T-score of 282, two other of his peers from Rosyth entered the national top 10 list too. With this feat, Rosyth moved up 2 places from 5th position to be amongst the Big Three schools in KiasuParents.com's academic power rankings.
This is contributed by a parent who wish to remain anonymous: Thank you for sharing this valuable resource.
When my child started P4, I was clueless about what a DSA portfolio is. There was the Social Studies portfolio, the creative writing one but nothing about this dsa portfolio.
To have a better idea, we attended the dsa briefings while my boy was in P5 and P6, and looked at the ones prepared by former students who were invited back to the school. (Thank you, particularly Claire-NUSH, for sharing yours. )
The one I’m sharing below is suitable for academic and GEP dsa applicants. It’s definitely not recommended for applying for music/sports/sota/sst/sss etc. I’ve seen a kid submit a scrapbook which really stands out from the plain ones like my son’s and I’ve seen those who couldn’t be bothered and handed in only a measly portfolio of a few pages.
Updated 25 Mar 2013. Parents are often concerned about the competition for places or vacancies available for Primary One Registration in the year for which their loved ones are due. Traditionally, the birth rate peaks during the Year of the Dragon.
For the convenience of parents, we have mapped Singapore's birth rate data for the years 2000-2011, against the available vacancies for Primary One Registration in the years 2006-2017.
Note that the Birth Sign refers to children who are due for Primary One Registration for that year, ie. they will be attending Primary One in the following year.
