West Spring 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.

The guards are very friendly as from what I see when I went to register my gal.

Hopefully for that few parents, please do play their part in observing the school rules & regulations. By doing so, we also teaching our children "respect".

We all want the best for our children in all aspects.

:lovesite:
Dear Dearzen,

I am also worried about the traffic condition once the student population increases. The traffic condition to me is quite manageable, although occassionally we do see some parents alighting their kids before the pedestrian crossing. Sometimes, not because they wanted to do, but I guess if you observed carefully there is quite a handful of construction workers taking the pedestrian crossing. There was one time, it caused a little jam before the crossing as the cars were waiting for a huge group of workers taking their time to cross the road. Thereafter, I saw kids starting to get off their cars. Similiarly, this situation will worsen once new residents (across the school) move in next year.

Also, some parents chose to drop and drive off at the main gate because the parking space near the school entrance were occupied with cars. I wonder how the situation will be like next year when we have new batch of P1 & their parents who drive. They will compete for a parking space outside the school. Worst, residents who need to drive in and out of the new blocks. Needless to say, the parents' cars stopping alongside the road will cause traffic woes.

I would like to suggest, if you need to accompany your kids to the gate, please park further down the road (preferably after the entrance of the new blocks). Please free up the space outside the school entrance for parents who drop and drive off - this will also help to lessen traffic congestion for residents' vehicle that need to move in and out in future.

Lastly, I really hope the school can re-consider allowing drop/alight within the school compound. It can help to divert traffic to the rear gate (near KJE) to allow smooth flow of traffic. School needs parent co-operation and vice-versa, parents needs school's support. There is a clear define path for pedestrian (students) walking into the school. There is also a separate path for vehicles. Both don't intersect with each other. Sadly, we do see they intersect now because drivers will continue to park at their convenience and putting a risk on pedestrian's safety. Although, it is outside the school compound, but I urge parents and school to work together for the safety and goods of our kids (students).

I think this may ease the traffic at the current entrance which will only get worst come next year when more students are enrolling to the school. More importantly it will better ensure the safety of the students and parents walking to school. Currently, I feel there are too much happening at the gate especially, like some of the fellow parents pointed out, due to the traffic condition, some of the parents decided to drop off their children on the pedestrian crossing and at the school gate out of convenient.
Dear Pixelbee,

:thankyou: for your suggestion. :smile:

The second side gate located along the KJE cannot be opened to parents and students as it is meant solely for the school’s access to the future park connector located along KJE. It is thus important for all parents to cooperate with our security guards when dropping off or picking up their children at/from school each day. Doing so will greatly benefit everyone as there’ll be smoother traffic flow for us and the future residents living across our school. :please:

Happy that there is no balloting!! Yeah!! Looking forward to my gal's six years of education with WS! The journey of choosing the pri schools hasn't been easy for us (esp since our choice was always CHIJ until WSPS came about in 2014). We were glad that we made it to the school's open house earlier in June which actually gave us the final affirmation that our choice was right to choose WS. Really love the way that you guys do to engage with parents. Even after attending the orientation, I still constantly received updates through emails or via the forum. Good job!

Hope you guys can keep up the good job and I am sure that my girl will enjoy her education here in WS!

Cheers!!
Dear Strawberry mummy,

Welcome to our West Spring family! :dancing:
We’re glad to have been able to convince you and many other potential parents to join us! This has resulted in West Spring garnering the highest number of Phase 2C applicants in years 2013 and 2014 (141 applicants in 2013, and a whooping 209 applicants in 2014) in the Bukit Panjang area! :hi5:

We feel so encouraged by the numerous compliments and commendations from so many current parents and newly registered parents via this forum or through emails/phonecalls! :grphug:

We look forward to your continued support as we work together to provide an enriching, joyful and memorable learning experience for your children! :smile:

Dear Starkids,

:thankyou: for your suggestion. :smile:

Like you rightfully mentioned, all parents need to cooperate with the school in order to ensure a smooth traffic flow outside the school. If this is not achieved, the residents from across the blocks of flats will also be upset over the traffic jam caused by our parents. The school will continue not to allow parents to drop off their children within the school compound as the safety of every child must be ensured within our school. At the same time, the MOE Kindergarten will also be starting operations next year within our school compound. So, the safety of these younger children is equally important.

There may be a need for parents who drop off their children at school to eventually park at the public car parks across the school, before accompanying their children to our school gate next year. We’ll need time to study the possible traffic management options outside our school and inform parents about them next year.

In the meantime, we seek all parents’ cooperation to help ease the traffic and human flow outside our school by showing consideration for one another, with safety being the top most priority. :please:
