New daddy here...

Postby Lightning_Mc_Queen » Thu Apr 21, 2011 3:57 pm

Hello everyone! Just signed on to this great community! I am the proud daddy of a 20-months old toddler and am now thinking of his future educational path.

Trouble is... I am a Singapore PR who studied primary school in Malaysia and continued my secondary (St. Patricks School), college (VJC) and university (NUS) in Singapore.

Does that mean as far as primary school goes, I am totally at a disadvantage already?

Would appreciate any advice anyone has on this topic.

Thank you!!!

not totally disadvantage, just lack the advantage of priority enrolment to a ex-primary school. Majority of PR & Citizens are in the same boat.

Thanks! Looking at all the info around here just made me realise I should have started my homework even before my boy is born! Gosh...

Just a quick question... so in my case, the only way to have the best possible chance of getting to the school I want is to move within 1km of it right...?

Thanks again and I look forward to interacting with everyone here:-)

Not only that. You should also apply as a parent volunteer (PV) with the school you are interested in sending your child to.
