Sec Sch

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.

Guilt comes in for not putting him to sch closer to his aggregate. Many parents choose sch so far away from homes. I do really admire them & their kids.

Anderson and some better schools we did consider, no direct journey - bus/lrt,mrt,circle line, walk - so many routes may tire the child. Or am I worrying too much? Some parents live so much further than me. Top schools produce top scorers. How about NCHS? Rank 1 this yr.

In choosing sec sch, should we choose close to COP? Many people had been asking me why I choose a school with aggregate far away from COP? I am new in this.

Frankly...there is no right or wrong...in NCHS...there are 25+ and even 26+ pupils in it...we are always focusing on COP rather than the quality of education that a school can gave...for me..i will visit a school at less a couple of time and talk to ..Open house and etc.....not to the teacher or principle..but to the pupil in the canteen...or bus stop....when you have casual talk with them...you somehow understand more about the quality of the student that the school have...that helps me in deciding my daughter school...

I'd stick with Nan Chiau if I were you. Distance is very important. They are very busy in secondary school. Don't waste time in travelling.

what is a good gauge of travelling time for sec school? 45min to 1hr include waiting time and bus/mrt transfer, consider long?
