Yes I agree that their chinese language suck as is below national level. But other subject like English Maths and Science is above national level. How do you fair St Stephen School vs MacPherson Primary School. I would appreciate your genuine feedback on these 2 schools. My son is currently in MacPherson Primary School. He is born in the Year of Dragon so chances of transferring to other good school near my house ie. Kong Hwa, Geylang Methoist, Hong Wen, Ngee Ann are very slim. I have opted for St Stephen School because it is affliated to St Joesphe Institution and St Patrick School

[Marine Parade] Found an alternative ! St Stephen's school

Postby dana » Wed Jun 11, 2008 6:23 am

Hi,

My mother-in-law asks us to register our son into St Stephen's under her address which is within 1-2 km. We just need to do a statutory declaration that our son will be look after by her.

I like to find our more about St Stephen's. It is a good school? Is single sex school better? What the the different between a govt-aided and govt school? Should i try for it because it will mean that the entire family will be moving to the east if he get enrolled.

I am very sure my mother-in-law will be happy :lol:

Hi dana, here is a list of schools in the vicinity that you may consider.

If your MIL is near Marine Parade, then Tao Nan would definitely be a much better alternative than St. Stephen's. In any case, between 1-2km is not really that near. You will still end up in Phase 2C which would probably need balloting.

[Bedok] Primary Schools

Postby lurline » Fri Jul 04, 2008 6:43 pm

Hi,

I am considering Temasek Pri as it is the school closest to my place (within 1km). Please give me some feedback on this school if your child is from Temasek. I am not sure if i shd register in temasek or red swastika (within 2km).

Do I have to ballot in Phrase C (temasek), if I am within 1km?

Thank you!

According to this, in the last 2 years, both Red Swastika and Temasek Pri has balloting even for those less than 1km in Phase 2C. So you are likely to have to ballot in Phase 2C in Temasek this year too.

Hi,
I want to register my daughter in St. Anthony's Canossian. But I am more than 2km away. What are my chances in phase 2C?
