My main concern is distance. Intention is to send my boy in morning, placed him in student care and fetch him after work. Worried for the long hours as heard no afternoon nap in student care.


I don't know what's a typical student care schedule. You can call them to chk.
Talk to the student care person-in-charge, you will have a clearer picture.

What's the alternative if you do not place him in student care?

Found it online. Maybe helpful to you.

Student care subsidies

Student care centres provide before- and after-school care for children aged 7 to 14. If you need to put your child in a student care centre but cannot afford the fees, you can apply for help under ComCare.

Who can apply

The child must be a Singapore citizen or permanent resident (PR). If your child is a PR, at least one immediate family member of the child must be a Singapore citizen;
The child is between 7 and 14 years of age and is attending an MOE-registered school;
Both parents of the child are working; and
Either your monthly household income is $3,500 or below, or the average income of each family member is $875 or below.

Please check up the info at http://www.ecitizen.gov.sg/Topics/Pages ... -care.aspx

Agree, should go for the 1km one. The other one too far away requires balloting-higher risk.


Not true that 1km means you get in. CHIJ TP at Phase 2C requires balloting among citizens within 1km. OLGC also sometimes requires balloting. Would advise you to monitor the situation for both schools.

If both are unsuccessful, can consider Marymount Convent. Very near to TP.

Are there separate bathroom (separate female from male students ) inside the student care centre, for kids to bathe ?

Pro-Teach have.

If you are worried about bathing, then tell kid not to bathe. It's not compulsory to bathe. Most just stay in their uniforms till evening.

Hi, I am new with this Forum. My child will be going to P1 in 2014 as well. Two schools within 1 km from my place are Rosyth and Hougang Primary. Have done PV for Hougang Primary. Heard Rosyth's registration is super competitive. We are neither alumni nor PV. Only done PV for Hougang Primary. Can someone share experience with either of this school? How's Hougang Primary? My priorities are distance + CCAs (performing arts).

i) Phase 2C Rosyth
113 registered, 43 places (based on last year, 2012)

Balloting occurred for SC - less than 1 km.
Intense competition. ratio is 3:1
ie. for every 3 Singapore citizenship kids involved in the balloting, only 1 lucky child’s name will be called out.

refer Rosyth historical P1 registration balloting statistics:-
http://www.rosyth.moe.edu.sg/cos/o.x?c= ... &rid=78756


ii) Phase 2C Hougang primary
110 registered, 91 places (based on last year, 2012)

same as Rosyth –
ie. Balloting occurred for SC - also less than 1 km.
but competition less intense.

http://www.hougangpri.moe.edu.sg/cos/o. ... &rid=76425

iii)
if fail to ballot into Rosyth successfully under Phase 2C (touch wood), you may choose other primary schools available, under Phase 2C Supplementary (go next phase ):-

for Serangoon :-

(St Gabriel, Yangzheng, Zhonghua - are available for 2C Supp)

for Hougang :-
http://www.kiasuparents.com/kiasu/content/hougang
(Punggol, Xinghua, Xinmin, Yio Chu Kang, Montfort Junior - are available for 2C Supp)

==========================================================

btw, this coming Saturday (4 May 2013, 9 am - 12.30 pm), St Gabriel plus Ang Mo Kio schools are involved in the Parents seminar, organized by MOE. Schools will set up their booth there. The schools involved in this seminar include :-
