Alexandra 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.

I am thinking the same too.

Plus is new facility & renowned principal from MBPS
Concern is the possible lack of transport arrangement and student care services.

What attracts you to APS instead of nearby schools (within 1km)?

My workplace is near APS and my daughter's pre-school 10 mins away from APS. So logistics it works for me to pick both up after school. I heard there will be student care services if there is demand. Gotta watch this year's intake...hopefully not over-subscribed!!

Are you registering this year?

Just to point out the obvious before parents choose a school based on this factor of having a "renowned principal". I'm pretty sure Maha Bodhi was already established even before she joined the school. Unless this is Maha Bodhi (Branch), I don't think it makes a difference.

I agree..the principal from MB doesnt really appeal to me. Its the new facilities and logistics that appeal to me.

let me rephrase a bit.
"renowned principal from MBPS" to "principal from renowned primary school" :)

Managed to find their website and drove past it last night, the school compound looks small.
