Hi Yong HL,
Nice knowing you here. :)

Am so far happy with the school. The most important thing is I can see that my son is happy, enjoying and look forward to attend school every day.

Only couple of incidents that happened cause my worry but I must say I am very happy and please with the school principal, Mrs.James, who has responded to my concern almost instantly.

As for the student care, I got no info about it cause I wasn't looking around for this service.

Look forward to share more with you :)

HI my dd1 is also in hougang primary (p3). dd2 is going in next year. i must say to all that it is a wonderful school and am very satisfied that it provides a more holistic learning rather than push pupils only in tha academic front. my gal enjoys going to school. And as KS_me mentioned, Mrs. James is such a caring person that I can be in peace that my child is taken care of in school.

I noticed they cut down 2 classes from 300 seats to 240 seats this year. Perhaps this is a transition to single session.

But honestly, I like my boy being in afternoon session... segegrated from upper primary. So he only mix with his peers and have their own assembly session and such...
