P6? How's the PSLE preparations going? It's coming soon :scared: I can imagine how stressed we can get during this period! Do you think PHPS has effectively prepared your boy for this upcoming milestone?

PHPPS PSLE preparation

I think PSLE should be ok. Very pressurised last year. This year more relaxed, less homework compared to last year. So unlike other schools which has supplementary lessons daily, PHPPS only twice a week.

#1 has been quite consistent in his performance since P1, so not very worried till I came to this forum and learnt of other avenues like the maths olympiad training classes. Though PHPPS has engaged a 3rd party (Hot House) to conduct Maths Olympiad Course, I think it is insufficient. If only I knew DSA favours Platinium/Gold holders, I would hv spent the money to get more training for the boy. But no point crying over spill milk now.

Rightly or wrongly, I've always felt that it is better for the child to make it to a good Secondary school by his/her own performance in the PSLE, and not have to rely on external boosters such as affiliation or DSA. Then again, that's me. As long as your boy works hard and do well in PSLE, nothing can stop him from getting what he wants!

Sadly there is sth called "quota". Many places are already reserved by this group of highly trained personnel :P

We had the choice of sending him to ACS Pri then. After knowing the cutoff points for ACS(I) affiliation, we also did not know whether to bang our heads together. Then again, we are also would like the child to achieve "great things" on his own. I am not making much sense here hor.

Aiya, just let whatever would happen happen lah.

Congrats shuting28, and welcome, IJJ! Which school did your daughter get transferred from? How long did it take you from the time you applied for the transfer?

My daughter was transferred from Bt Timah Pri. She was on waitlist since P1. Was #30+ on the waitlist, thot that we got no chance at all, lucky us. :)
