Newbie & Pri Sch Headache

Postby Saturday » Thu May 31, 2012 11:06 pm

Hello everyone. I am a newbie & have a year 2008 boy.

I am grateful that I found your very informative site.

My son will be due for P1 in 2015. We live in Seletar estate (near Greenwich) & old schools are not an option for us as my hubby is PR & my old school is in the East.

The schools that are within 1km from us are not our choice schools. We are considering Yang Zheng, St Gabriel's, Kuo Chuan Presbyterian, Xin Min & Hougang. Would really appreciate it if someone could share the comparison among these schools, the good & bad points, etc.

None of these schools are within 1-2km. Probably 3-4km. I reckon we will need to do parent volunteer once we have chosen our 1st choice school. Would also appreciate it if someone could share the registration processes (phrase A,B & C??) & rules.... Could we PV in multiple schools? And if we fail to get into our 1st choice school even after all the PV effort, what do we do next? Do we then apply through the next phase or go to 2nd choice school?

Will there be a chance to get into any of these schools if we don't do PV?

I look forward to some advice & tips.
