St. Margaret's Secondary

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.

SMSS is an Anglican school. They have a long history & tradition, 168 years (?) now

Girls should be girls and I think their DOT program should be good.

You can find out more info from the school website. Some notices are communicated via school website. You may download the monthly principal's newsletter from the web to get a feel on the pulse of the school

Which class is your girl in ? Since you are seeking info here I presume your girl was not from St Marg Pri.

thanks for the info!

Actually my girl is from the pri school but I was told the culture is pretty different in the sec school.

Is your girl in the school now? What level?

a friend was telling me the SMPS is quite "lax"

Understand that SMSS is pushing hard on the EL subject - Sec 2 using book 3 instead of book 2 ........

my girl is in Sec 3 this year, now out on a 4 day camp at Sarimbun

Glad to hear that SMSS is more on the ball :lol:

My girl has a good time in SMPS but need to study hard now. She is currently in 1/7 under Mdm Carol Soh. Any feedback on her teaching methods?

Heard that she is a good teacher. Dealt with her a few times. Very ok!

Note that SMSS is now an autonomous school

verykiasu2010 mom,

do you know if we can appeal to the school if our girl cannot get into the CCA she wants?

I think you can get in touch with the CCA teacher in touch by email and pick up from there. It is an indication of enthusiasm, right ?
