Welcome DADDY rockoil! I get extra happy whenever we get a new daddy member, because it means we are doing something right here at KiasuParents.com.

Hope your alma mater is in or near Bukit Panjang, otherwise you don't really have any other choice of avoiding the dreaded Phase 2C if you haven't "prepared" for it.

Hi rockoil,
Welcome to KSP 8)
My take on Zhenghua and GreenRidge.
Zhenghua - strong in asthetics - was at one point considering that, but my boy is not the performance arts type of person, so I reckon those with girls would love this school
GreenRidge - credible academic track records, but from hearsay, a bit too academic-driven

Thanks for the Tips.

I can see hot favour in my area is Beacon and Bukit Panjang.
Being for sure i am in the Phase 2C and both school is fall under 1-2KM region. I surely will be out.

Hence, left with ZhengHua and GreenRidge le.
I am sourcing for a student care first. Then will see which school is more nearer the student care.

Haiz, Nowadays kids are really stressful....

You mean nowadays kids are stressful or nowadays having kids are stressful? :wink:
Dont think many kids will appreciate our anxiety over the P1 registration. My boy is happily settled in a neighbourhood school and any mention of attempt transfer, he'll go :!: NO!!!!!!! :wink:

He's referring to the school you attended when you were
attending Primary education.. if you attended one of the
schools within Bt Panjang area, then can go through
Phase 2B to enlist your boy for P1 (in your old school).
Would have higher chance of entry if you represented
the school committee or was a high flyer or contributed
to the school in a way when you were in the school then.
Like the best basketball player leading school to national
championship.. or you were leading the soccer team then..
or you were the head prefect, etc.

Zhenghua is relatively near to a few student cares.
Uniform colour oso okay, white and green.

Beacon is most popular cause its one of the newer
primary schools set up there, so it took in slightly
lower P1 enrolment the first time it started. Dunno
about now... must check.

Mine oso happy in neighbourhood school. We didn't
ballot. No wait list. No need to do PV. Very easy breezy
experience, totally no stress. Then when you get letter
of acceptance from the school, some will arrange for
Primary One Preparatory Class - like a few days work
shop kinda thingy to get the kids accustomed to the
school grounds, its facilities, buying food at the canteen
and also some revision lessons for children with their
future P1 classmates.. (for a small fee).

Ya, you're kinda right on the confusion.
Are the kids stressed or the parents?

And yes, Zhenghua is high on aesthetics
with like SYF and oversea performance(s)
opportunities. A friend's girl gotta a stint
last March hols to Hong Kong Disneyland
for a choir recital and exchange cultural
programme with sch in HK. Have yet to
catch up with them since they got back,
but i'm sure there are loads of memories
to share.. :wink:
