Can we have a new catagory under Pirmary School?

Postby gajidouma » Thu Jul 16, 2009 9:51 am

Can we have a new catagory under Pirmary School where we have each primary school in Singapore as individual thread.... so hard to find discussions about one school.... scattered everywhere.

Tried search function, still not very helpful. And the posts under each school map page are quite limited. Can we find a better solution? :pray:

Hi gajidouma, I understand your issue. But we have nearly 180 Primary schools in Singapore, so you are talking about creating 180 threads. And most times, when people talk about schools, they like to compare them some other schools in the neighbourhood. Do that long enough and we'll have a complete meltdown, and people will still have to use the Search function, anyway.

In any case, as you have noticed, each school already has its own section in the main KiasuParents.com portal, and people are free to leave their comments about the school there. That is meant for doing exactly what you wanted. But we cannot force people to leave their comments there... if people have something to say, they will do so - at the own time and convenience.

Yes... but the intent of the new Forum is really for parents who ALREADY have kids in the school to network with other parents with kids in the same school. Of course, the side benefit is that outsiders now have a source that can go to directly ask questions about the school. Try not to talk about "What are the chances of getting into XYZ school" in these new threads :)
