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.

Hi
Any students travel from red line ?

Based on moveit, we need to change to downtown line alight at botanic garden and walk 11 mins. I find it’s a little far to walk. Any other ways to travel ?

Hi, you should transfer to take the circle line and alight at Farrer Road MRT. It's a short walk of a few minutes only to the side gate of St Margaret (which is only for students to access I believe).

So it's definitely accessible.

Hi parents my daughter scored 195 for psle and we have been eyeing on st margaret's for a long time 😅😅 so we are def trying to aim for SMSS. i was formerly from a girls sch (tkgs to be exact) and i would love for my daughter to have the wonderful experience i have being in a girls school. I believe in the school's culture and having a good mix of students from diff races and cultures for my girl to interact with. I am staying at jurong east. Do u think its far from where the school is at.? I personally dont but hope to get input from other parents with regards to distance and whether it would be taxing for my girl in the long run.
I think it's pretty ok honestly. As St Margaret is walking distance from Farrer Road MRT, the commute is definitely much reduced as most of it would be on the MRT (assuming you've easy access to Jurong East MRT).

You can consider other girl schools too, such as chij TP (walk from toa payoh MRT), St Theresa's convent / paya lebar MGS (both no direct MRT access though).

All the best! :smile:

Yes. Nanyang JC is one of the popular choices. More imptly is for them to go to different JC open house and it will give a better insight of which school they prefer, not necessarily how good the JC is. Distance is also another factor to consider as JC life is the toughest not only academic but also mental challenge.

Hi Jann,

May I check if the gals are placed into secondary 1 classes based on PSLE score? Or any other consideration like DSA, taking higher mother tongue etc?

Many thanks!!

Hi Lil_Jade,

During my girl's batch (she graduated last year), it was according to PSLE score for the first class as most of them are not from St Marg's Primary. Since they are from non-affliated school like my girl, they have a higher minimum COP so most of their results are above average. My girl did not take higher Chinese in PSLE but that has no effect on the class allocation. I'm not sure about DSA though.
