Depends on which year is your child born.

If registering this year I don't think you need to worry for hougang pri and xinmin.

Do I need to move within 1 km of Qifa to ensure my registration in Phase 2c? Thanks

hi hi all parents, would like to ask if anyone has such experience...?
my current flat is within 1 km of school and my parents new flat also within 1 km of sch..
I intend to move maybe this year or next year which makes my registered address beyond 1 km but within 2 km..
would it be a good idea that I change my registered address to my parents? if I move beyond 1 km but within 2 km.. will my child be penalised?

If you have benefitted from the distance priority and gotten your child a place in school as a result, you will be penalized by MOE if you shifted out of your original distance before the 30 months is up. Your child may lose the place in school.

If you change your address to your parents’ place but have no intention to stay there, you will be penalized by the law for cheating. Refer to the statute for the exact punishment.

Either way, they are lose-lose options.

Sure...... chances of not getting caught are always good until one of your classmate's neighbour's mother's cousin's son hear about it, and your child is the person standing between his child and the top leadership position of being the Science monitor's assistant, all hell breaks loose.

You can read about some examples of people thinking their chances were good until it become not so good here: 2018, 2014, 2007 & 2004.

Problem is, it only takes a slip of the tongue and a small misstep to land yourself in unnecessary trouble... And kids at that age, tends to slip their tongue quite often and share more than they should :wink:
