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.

Hi cool kids,
That was one of my dd s choice too. She looked at the sch website, and loves the school rules. She thinks the stricter the sch rules, the better behave they ll be. Haha.. I also want to find out more about that school from parents out there.
Dd ' s dreamsch tkgs was dashed yesterday.

Same for me. But we are still trying for TKGS and will be appealing. It will be a long shot for us though.
Yes, she also understands that she needs strong boundaries to do well, even though she hates it.
Good luck to us.

Almost same. For us, will try so that there will not be any regrets. Based on my understanding, posting is by merit, not by order of choice.

But so far no feedback from other parents.

Heard that 1 to 2 pts from COP can try appealing. But I called tkgs yesterday and was told that every year there would be >100 applicants under waiting list. Sigh....

I am also looking at CHIJ Katong. Can't find any achievement information from the school website.

Any parents of the current students please share.

Just to share that CHIJ KC will be moving to its temporary premises in 2014 and 2015 at Kallang Basin (previous location of Cedar and VC). Thereafter it will then be moving back to its current location at Marine Parade.

So parents who are considering to kc as one of the choices has to take note of the travelling distance for the nxt 2 yrs.

Thanks bleeze for the heads up. DH just brought DD to many schools again for a final run through before we submit our choices.

There is a listing of KC's alumnae in Wikipaedia and I know a couple of lawyers who were former students. DD's tutor told me that they are strong in English and Literature.

I pass the school regularly and if the lady whom I was told is the principal is really so, would say that she is very hands-on and committed.
