Since your daughter is already 2017 P3 this year : most schools will process Transfer around November, after P3 SA2 (October) is over and AFTER GEP results had been announced.w0nderlnd wrote:Hi All,
We have recently shifted from Sengkang to Hougang. My DD1 is currently in P3 (not popular school). I'm considering whether or not to change school to HIPS or CHIJ OLN which both fall in <1KM, in fact I can practically see HIPS from my house.
Reason for changing is for the proximity and also these two are considered better school with more resources compared to her current one which is a relatively new school.
But DD1 is not keen in changing though because she say she is used to her school already and she insist can take public transport home that about 30-40mins to reach home. However, I feel that the time saved from travelling is worth it and also DD2 is going to P1 in 2019, so if DD1 is in one of these school then DD2 would qualify for Phase 1 ;p
Is there anyone who can share some advice how should I approach this? How can I psycho her to change or should I even?
Also, between HIPS and CHIJ OLN which is better and stand a higher chance for transfer?
Meanwhile, you can still submit Wait Lists: to both CHIJ Our Lady of Nativity primary and Holy Innocent primary.
You may download these forms, from their schools' internet website.
You may contact both schools, enquire when they start processing 2017 P3 Transfer Application forms ?
State down the reasons why you want to seek Transfer, submit all attached documents (including Report card results, All other Achievement Certificates, from P1 to current), to support your Transfer request. Wait for schools, to process.
If Vacancies arise And if your P3 child has been short-listed, the school will contact you, in due time.
