Thanks for the suggestion and advise! Anyone has any reviews or experience with Holy Innocents Primary? Is it more or less the same as Xin Min in terms of chances of getting in?

Holy Innocents will certainly be balloting within 1km in 2C. It'll very much depends on your risk appetite. Prepare backup plan in case you fail to get in.

hi all,

anyone has experience in this? can share?
i stay in changi rise condo blk 2, which according to onemap.sg, is 1-2km for chongzheng primary.
but the other blocks, including the condo management office address, is within 1km.
will the school take my block address, or condo management address?
*confused!*

Thanks!

Sorry, should be strictly your block number. There was some discussion at page 101/102 of this thread:

Hi
I need some advice please.
If we use an address for Pri school that is within 1 km. But within 30 months we changed address BUT still within 1 km of the school. Is that still violating the address requirements ?

Hi,
Would anyone be able to advise on this please: For schools that are residing at a temporary holding place while the original school compound is being upgraded, how would MOE count the distance? Would it be base don the temp holding place or the original location?

Thanks.
