Hello there!
My girl is born in 2016. I plan to apply as a parent volunteer in st Hilda's primary school next year. Unfortunately, it is not within 1 or 2 km from my house.( I stay near gongshang primary) Can anyone advise if it is worth to try out ? I prefer my girl to attend a missionary school. 😶 Plus does anyone have tips to gain the role as PV in this school. Thanks

My suggestion is don’t bother. You are wasting time as SHPS will ballot at Phase 2B.

On a good year for you, you will probably get to ballot for a few limited place (and if you fail, Phase 2C is out for you).
On a bad year for you, SHPS will ballot < 2km which mean you don’t stand a chance.

If your priority is a missionary school, I’m quite sure there’s one that’s nearer to you.

Hi everyone, i'm new here, my daughter (born in 2016) is 3yrs old this year and i'm planning hard to let her studying in Rulang Primary (we are staying within 1km).

Can anyone advise how and when should i start doing PV for the school?

And should i join the RC (Executive Member) to stand a higher chance?

Thank you in advance and hope to have some advices from everyone soon.

I just checked onemap.sg. I stay 2.2 km from st Hilda primary and 750 m from gong Shang. Can I apply for those staying 2 km from shps? Pls advise . I don't mind doing parent volunteer too. Thanks

You should use the School Query function in onemap to confirm the distance category you are in. This is the official source used by schools.

To add, if you are > 2km from the school, doesn't matter whether you are 2.2km, 5km or living in Johore. You are lumped under the same grouping (> 2km).

If you are keen on PV (Phase 2B), you should try Gongshang.
If you are keen on missionary school, you should try St. Anthony’s Canossian. Usually no ballot at Phase 2C.

Dear All,

I am interested to enrol my child to Rulang and Nan Hua Primary school, SG 50 baby, Pri 1 registration in 2021.
I am also looking at PV scheme. Is it correct to say that while selecting PVs, the school will also look at the current residential address? I have plans to move within 1 km for Phase 2B or Phase 2C. Is it necessary to move before the PV registration is open which some time next year?

Thank you very much!
