Thanks eileen_ng11! Glad you managed to get into Compassvale. It's strange that the orientation is held so late in the afternoon... where got time to go buy books and uniforms?

Hi,

I missed balloting for Compassvale Pri school last year for 2010 P1 due to fear of being balloted out and left with no many choices of other school in Sengkang.

I left my son's name on Compassvale Pri's waiting list and today got their call which offer to get my son transferred in their school.

Can i have some feedback from parents whose kids are attending this school ?

My son is in another young neighbourhood school in Sengkang and he is happy there, but i find his form teacher quite slack and from Jan till now already absent from schools for 5-6 days. Never email to us and never train the kids to write down homework list in their diary, saying that they take long time to do so. The school is also very dead in the afternoon with only single session. Compassvale Pri is having P1,3 & 5 in the pm right ? So, are 2 classes sharing one classroom? In this case, do the kids have locker to keep their books not required to bring home ? How are the teachers there ? Who is the current principle and vice principal, where were they from and are they good and on ? etc etc etc...

I need to reply to the school my decision this Fri so need some parents' kind help in giving me some comments on the school.

Tks v much,
JSC

Hi JSC,

I am in the same situation as you. (I have also PM u). I was balloted out last year for Compassvale. Then I receive a call from Compassvale yesterday and have to reply to them by this friday.

My son is now studying with a relatively new school in Punggol. In term of academic, I can´t comment as it is a new school. But my son has settled down pretty well and is happy.

To me, academic of school is not my priority but the distance does make a lot of different. Now I am in dilemma whether I should transfer him. Compassvale is so near to my house but worried that he may feel isolated in a new school.

Some of you might have read the article on Low Wei Jie who ran all the way.

For those who have not, here's the link:

http://www.todayonline.com/YOG/EDC10081 ... -torch-run

Sorry, I don't know how to do a link.

However, I'm proud of him. He is a really shy boy, but a special one.

I'm proud of him for being a Compassvalite, just like me.

I know him as he is in the same CCA as me. He's a really nice person, who will usually go all the way to do what he wants.

I was so shocked when Mr Chua, our principal, told us about the news. I could not believe that this boy would actually do what he did.

People may beg to differ, but this are just my views.

Also, my principal told us this morning, Wei Jie is going to be a torchbearer, supposingly for tomorrow.
