Now we are trying to appeal to a nearer JC.


Serangoon JC's COP was 13 last year and 12 the year before.

Lol. you can still decide not to send your child to a jc. Settle for a poly course. Don't like the system? Nobody is forcing you to play it.

Good thing I quoted her original post if not it'll seem like I started the post. Strange. Why delete her account?
