Activities after PSLE

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

I randomly went to one Primary School's website and it says that PSLE results would be released on Friday 26 November. Though it says "tentative", chances are it is usually a confirmed date, but just that most schools would put it as "tentative", just in case to play safe.

You are given 5 days including 26 November and weekend to submit your 6 choices for Secondary Schools and even that, you don't need to go to the Primary School to submit your choices physically unlike previous years, so means online submission can be done anyway, anytime. You just need your son's result slip and the PIN given with the results slip to submit your Secondary School Selection online.

But to play safe, I would suggest a holiday after 1 December, and I would suggest that you come back before 20 December. The Orientation for S1 is usually held a day or few days before Christmas.

The secondary section of the same primary school that I checked randomly says release of S1 posting is on 22 December and all P6 students are to report to the Secondary School on 23 December. Again they say that it is tentative, but I have every reason to believe that it should be those dates.

After the Orientation, you will be very busy, sometimes the uniform size for your child is not available or some textbooks are missing etc, so you will need those few days after the Orientation to scout around for those missing items.

Speaking from experience, hope that helps.

queing up for text book can be time consuming on 23 Dec itself coz everyone buy on that day. You might just want to get the book list and go back another day such as Saturday morning to buy them if the school is not far from your home.

Hi parents! What activities/things you or your kid plan to do after your kid's psle?
For my ds, I suppose he will play computer games like siao as he has stopped playing his favorite online command and conquer game since after june holiday. Other then tt, if time allows, I will sign him up for 2 weeks intermediate Weiqi course...
Still thinking of some more activity for him to do :scratchhead:
