Thanks ChiefKiasu for your reply. I seriously thinking of giving Rulang a miss. Never been lucky with lucky draws in my life.
I share the same feeling as the old auntie when I see my friends doing volunteering work in schools and giving so many extra classes and tution to their children. I even commented that they are giving their children so much stress.
All my friends commented that I am not in Singapore that's why I can't feel the pressure. Our family have been away since my son is 9mths old. We hope to be back next year for his primary school education.
In fact, I never pressure him on his work and never send him to any extra lessons or activities. I think bulk of his time is playing and watching TV after school. No homework No spellings as the Montessori school he is attending believe in making sure the children are happy
Initally, my plan is to put him into any primary school that my sister (staying around Lakeside) has chosen as I wanted my niece and my son to be in the same school for convenience. She was thinking of putting her daughter to Lakeside which is within 1km from her place and 2km from my place. The school seems to be very new and don't have track records.
After I read the postings in this forum and the comments from friends and relatives, I am feeling the pressure to send my son to a better school so that he won't fall back too much (according to my friend).
By the way, do you have any recommendation of student care cum childcare with tution services around Jurong West?
