Schools that I know of:

1. Nanyang primary -- swimming
2. ACS -- swimming
3.Catholic High School Primary -- music
4.St. Andrew Junior -- swimming
5.

I believe the list go on. Any one can add?


How about golf? For girls.

Hi csc,

Wanted to ask if the boy who got accepted into HPPS:

1) Did he waitlist after he could not get in HPPS after P1 registration?

2) Or did he went to another school, then use gymnastics to get in at later part of P1?

just curious, how does DSA trials for sports work?

do the kids play against each other? like a mini competition? or just test various aspects of the game? those only work for individual games. how about team games?

Don't know about the team type, eg soccer.

But for individual sports, they'll do agility and strength exercises. Then do the sports specific skill exercises before getting split up to play games.

Subsequently, the shortlisted ones may get called back on another day to play against each other and I assume that's to get some sort of ranking for the school's CO/ WL decision.

If number of candidates small or they already can see the ranking based on their coaches experience, then may not have day 2.

The whole DSA process is about sieving mah.
I think they will also shortlist based on the achievements, documents and results submitted then call for trials.
