Hi 33mama,
on 22 Dec, it is best to take full day leave as you would need to get the books and uniform. It is also ideal if u can go with another adult coz one could queue to buy the books while another queue to get the uniform. And don't forget to bring cash. I read something about this previously in ksp, and it helped when i registered for my elder's son Sec 1.

Thanks for the fast response. Is there an orientation, etc? or it's straight to books and uniform buying?

Do you remember what time you received the sms on the results?

Hi i remember the sms should come at around morning. I remember i was still sleeping and my mom excitedly woke me up to tell i got into my 1st choice :snooze: :snooze:

22 Dec is known as reporting day. This is the day the principal makes speeches and introduces the programs by the school. I heard that you get to know your class on that day in some schools. You should be buying books and uniforms on that day as well, so do bring along some cash:)

And also your PE attire. If got no stock, can still wear the primary school ones for PE.

around 6 am, even before you are up, based on past years experience by ksp members
