Need your opinion on my dilemma.
Son is about to enrol for P1 next year (born 2007). We are currently staying in Sengkang area.
However, all of us (husband and myself, even my boy boy is schooling and working in west area). My parents are in the west area and so do my siblings.
Planning to shift house end fo 2014.
Now, the question:
Should i pick the school near Sengkang ? Then halfway through, we transfer my boy to a west side school?
Or should i go ahead and pick the west area school?
(but i heard they are measuring 1km, 2km).
Note: All of my parents and siblings employed. so no chance of using the Statutory
Any ideas?Also can recommend any good school besides Rulang primary?and Rosyth school in the northeast (near my sengkang west)?
I am in a similar situation with u~
I live in SK as well, but my parents live in city area..
My initial plan was to place my girl in my old sch (CHIJ) near my mum's place but SK is very far n to think of her having to travel so long distances every day, i feel v heart pain for her..
best alternative option is to place her at my mum's hse but I am not so willing to let her stay there for the next 6 yrs.. she is currently living with my mum since last yr july, cos her CC is in tg pgr and traveling to and fro needs more than 1hr, where by from my parent's place its only 10 mins away.
So my hub n I discussed and thought of placing her in a pri sch at SK, but what we worry is we might not be able to rush back in time to fetch her ( my hub works at Jookoon and I'm working in CBD area.) my current job doesn't require OT, so i can rush back in time, but if i were to switch jobs (which i intend to) there is no guarantee that i can rush back to SK in time. So we r in discussion now, to place her in my old sch, and let her continue to stay at my mum's place and then move to city/town area (or nearby) when our house is up for selling (which is in 2016
any advice anyone?? would this be more rational? My mum might be retiring in a couple of years as well (her job is quite physical demanding) so if my girl is in my old sch, my mum can help to fetch her n look after her... Also since my hub is stationed at JK, seems more rational to move to City area tho the it would prob cause us a big bomb!
