Between TKSS and Anglican High

Having survived PSLE. we still need to network with other parents with kids in the same Secondary school. While giving our teenagers their own space, we can update each other about the school.

I thought the S1 posting is already out?
How come you still in a dilemma?
If your DS prefers AHS, then let him be.
My DS is in TKSS and he is happy there.
I was in a dilemma between VS, SST and TKSS last year, so I brought my DS to the three schools, explained to him what each had to offer and let him decide. He chose TKSS.
Now my DD who will be in P6 next year wants to go to TKSS when in secondary school cos she heard so much about the school not only from her brother but also his friends!

Thx for d input carebear.
My DS posted to tkss but we are appealing at AHS.
I am in dilemma if he is accepted at AHS thru the appeal.
Now AHS cop is up to 242 from 240.
My DS t score is 237.
Do u think we don't have hope for AHS appeal?
If so, I don't want to waste time waiting as I cant buy the tkss uniform and booklist as my son is still hoping for AHS .
Btw. What make ur DS like tkss ? I saw d review of tkss , the majority said their kids are happy in there.
But what make them happy ? I m curious indeed :)

Thx again

Hi momof3musketters, when i attended the school orientation and met the principal of TKSS, i felt that he was all out to bring out the best of each child. The teachers whom i came across during the year also seem to share the same ambition as the principal.
What I think make the students happy is that they are treated like young adults. The teachers are open to discussion.

Hi Momof3musketeers,

I'm in a similar dilemma as you right now. And just out of curiosity:

1. Did your son's appeal to AHS went thru?
2. Which school did he continue on, AHS or TKSS?
3. Which was your first choice in the option form? AHS or TKSS?

My Son's result is 237, and AHS cop is 239... So I'm not sure if it's worth taking the risk to apply.

Any sharing is much appreciated.

Thanks :)
