Hi. I'm a Catholic (but not confirmed) and would like to enrol my girl for 2019 intake in chij toapayoh. Sadly it's 2.5km away from where I stay.
Does my daughter need to be baptized To enrol into 2B?
I'm afraid the chances are low but just want to check. Could anyone assist me?
Miu miu has answered your question on baptism cert.

You may get a chance to ballot IJ TP at phase 2B >2km but if you fail the balloting, pls have a back up school for Phase 2C.

No need to try IJ TP again at 2C. Go straight to Marymount Convent or other not so popular CHIJs.

If you prefer a safe seat in a Catholic school, go to the not so popular CHIJs at Phase 2B right away.
I agree. Odds for IJTP for 2B for >2km is about less than 30%... If you can stomach it, then go for balloting. Otherwise, don't waste your 2B chance and look other CHIJs.

Hi, I am keen to register my girl in either OLN or OLGC. But I know that OLN is very popular and chances of balloting at phase 2C is high (I stay at >2km from the school).
I would like to seek advice on OLGC. Anyone has any idea of how the school is like?
- How are the teachers there?
- How is the environment like?
- Are they strong in teaching of values?
- How strong are they in their academics?
As it does not seem like a very popular IJ school, I'm wondering is it because of its location (nestled among the private housing) which does not appeal to parents?

Advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I understand that CHIJ family of schools are all Catholic-background schools.

Will kids from non-Catholic families be excluded in the schools? Will it be hard for non-Catholic kids to make friends in the school?
We are not Catholics but there is CHIJ (Kellock) near my home and we have a daughter.

All mission schools (Catholic, Methodist, Anglican or Presbyterian) will NOT exclude anyone who are not in this denominations.

Also I don't see why non catholic kids can't make friends with catholic kids. When making friends we don't see which religion you come from.

In most of the CHIJ schools, the girls come from different religion and different race, the only thing that the non catholic girls don't attend is the catechism class. However, there are some parents who are non catholic actually wrote in to the school and allow their girls to participate as well.

So, I think there is nothing to worry about.

about 20+% of students in CHIJ (Kellock) are catholics, I believe the environment is more inclusive than exclusive. I think CHIJ (Kellock) is one of the top choice in Bukit Merah area if you have a daughter. --> girls school with affiliation, in fact, the only school in Bukit Merah with affiliation.

I spend 10yrs in a Catholic school (non chij) and I am not a Catholic and still not. I do not have a problem making friends in school.
Just take note in regardless of your religion, your gal may still be exposed to bibles and some of the teaching.

Hi! Does anyone know whether for for old girls, can the P1 registration Phase 2A2 apply to all CHIJ schools in Singapore, or only back to the CHIJ that we have attended (and have the old report book)?
