DSA 2012

Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

Hi my friend's son next year S1 in RI. She is looking for one parent who drives his son to RI. Kindly help her to fetch her son to school every morning also. She stays in Jurong West Ave 1 (Near Jurong Green CC). She will pay S$100 for every month as thanks. If you are interested, please call Madam Li at 90261655. :thankyou:

Only these premier schools like RI, HCI, and DHS have, I think. My ds in NJC doesn't have.

Went for DS2's P5 parents briefing.
Suddenly got acquainted with IRS, Ivp, FPS again.
And was reminded by the teachers that if done properly it will help in his DSA portfolio.
Sigh. Here we go again................

Till now we still didn't know what DS1 did for his IRS/IVP/FPS.
He did everything on his won and didn't involve us at all.
Probably a very shoddy work.

Let's see how it turns up for DS2.

For RI DSA interview last yr, the geppers were requested to bring a project to showcase to the interviewers and my ds brought his ivp project poster there. Some chose to bring their other more outstanding writing assignment ...
But for mainstream I doubt RI request for it .. Or maybe I am wrong :?

Hi ....
Just an Update.

For RGS CCA, Apparently No One DSA successfully to the Sch Thru Dance Discipline Last Year.
Looks Like it's very Tough to DSA Via Dance CCA to the Sch.
