Err...sorry to intercept here. I thought I read in the papers today that HPPS has clarified that her son is not a student of theschool.
which paper did you read today that clarify her son is Not a student of Henry Park primary (HPPS) ? is it Straits Times, what page ?
if Henry Park primary school confirm in black and white over newspaper press that her husband was never from HPPS, then next logical qn to pursue is - was he ever an alumni from which other school ? SJIJ ?
i) if her husband was SJIJ alumni - they could have registered under phase 2A, SJIJ. If they had registered under this earlier phase, then nothing wrong. He is an alumni, and in accordance to MOE P1 registration rules, his child can enter. Period.
ii) but if her husband wasn't an SJIJ alumni - means she can only register her son under phase 2C, since she failed to quality for Nanyang under phase 2B, because she stayed more than 2 km, wasn't given any chance to ballot.If the family is of catholic faith, can go SJIJ under Phase 2B through church affiliation, right? No need to wait until 2C.
so next logical qn to ask is :
under 2C, what is the distance from her house to SJIJ ?
is it < 1km, 2 km or greater than 2 km ?
if she stay less than 1 km or less than 2 km that doesn't require balloting or she got in SJIJ through balloting, then is ok. Nothing wrong. is her luck that brought her in.

regardless of whether celebrity or not -
During P1 registration exercise, the rules do not bend "special" for anyone in particular. If public suspect any "foul play" DURING
Registration exercise, then public has the right to question the Principal there and then. He has to step forward and answer to public.
the entire P1 exercise ended, P has the authority to overide and decide which child he wants to take in next.
P doesn't need to explain to public why he take in this child, and not another child.
