I live in punggol.

Greendale Pri is jus a few blocks away. And all his cousins are studying there. Meetoh is the popular one in punggol. Yet like all kiasu mothers, i am not sure if my boy will miss out anything if i dun try meetoh.. since its so hot.

My hubby is keen on Catholic high as it impart good moral values and is rich in chinese culture. but its out of the question as we are not eligible for any of those phrases.
" Why aren't you an old boy?????!!" I wld scream at him. :x

Hi TAMummy,

many times I wonder is getting the kids into a SAP, GEP or popular school is really a must and necessary? :?

Which is why sometimes i am caught in between...

On one hand, i feel that very much is dependent on the child's own ability and parental support. On the other hand, there's no denial that school environment plays a vital role as well.

Greendale's locality is ideal for us but my sis gave me feedback that her one of her son's tr kept taking mc and another tr has poor classrm mgmt as she is very new.

At this point of time, i jus hope to get him into a school where he can learn, have fun and have trs who are experieced and committed. Hope that Greendale can deliver and i dun have to crack my head over where to register him.

Punggol? Catholic High?

Even if you are in time for PV, they will not even consider you as PV if you are not within 1km.

check the stats to gauge if you have any chance with Greendale at Phase 2C supp should you fail (touch wood) in Meetoh Phase 2C.
