Endeavour Primary

There's nothing quite like being able to discuss issues and network with other parents with children in the same school as yours. Individual Schools' Official Parent Support Groups are welcome to come in and help out the incoming groups of parents.

Hello all,

My kid will be joining the 2010 Primary 1 intake.

Endeavour is my 2nd choice attempt <SHY> but personally I am pretty comfortable with this choice so far. It offers single morning session, has higher chinese, within walking distance (no traffic crossings) to my house - - perfect combination for me now ! Hopefully it's not my Ah Q spirit working. :oops: Well, the take up rate in 2010 jumped from half empty/full last year to balloting required > 2km this year (& there are several primary schools nearby) - if anything else, word of mouth for this school must be pretty good so far.

We were in the school for the registration. Compound is clean and serene. Visited the school's websit - pretty rigid presentation but love the teachers' respective blogs with pictures and the personal touches. I, for one, will be eagerly looking forward to my child's class and updates and hopefully a peek of him in the picture blogs :lol:

See you folks on coming Nov 28 orientation! I will write about what I expect on the orientation day in my next post (I am sure Endeavour staffs will read KP web right?)

And there's nothing wrong with Ah Q spirit. It's the way people cope in the face of adversity. There is always a silver lining to every bad situation that we are in and those who can take the trouble to find and capitalize on this silver lining are those that will find true happiness!

That said... Endeavour is by no means a bad school at all! As you have already expressed, it is forward looking and raring to prove itself. Your child has now the privilege to be amongst its pioneers to do great things!

Check this out - RGS has 250 replies and >14k views & I am here "talking" to myself only in this thread? Perhaps this is a SIGN that Endeavour parents are less kiasu? <HURRAYS>

One more try - can any one tell me if Endeavour has after school care programme or any nearby good BASC to recommend?

Kekkkekke... poor radiantmum... sigh... it just means that Endeavour parents are more shy about identifying themselves with the school. Which is sad, because all it takes is some parents talking proudly about a school here to bring up the profile of the school by several folds. Nothing like a real life account of the school to get people intrigued.

Shirley, welcome - FINALLY I got someone ! Looking forward to the exchanges too :D

Jaslin, sorry looks like both Shirley and I can't help as our kids have yet to start school. For me, the push for Endeavour is higher Chinese.
