Ballot Stress- Free Pr School?

Hi, wondering if there is any pri school that is free from ballot stress and walking distance to my place? I live in lor melayu area…. 🙁

Thank You

Hi Panda8064

I did not go for Haig’s Girl after all.. don’t want to end up disappoint once again.

Rather play safe to go Canossa instead.

Thanks

 

 

Dear mamalock are u going

Dear mamalock

are u going for balloting at haig girls’? If so , all the best.

As for canossa convent, although it is a relatively small school, it has a long
history and can trace it’s roots back to italy.

On the academic front, it’s definately above average. It provides a good
hoslistic education for girls. Besides, it’s affliliated to st anthonys canossian secondary.

Canossa Convent Primary School

 

 

Dear All

Disappointed Mama Lock 🙁

Disappoint!!

 

 

 

 

Hi Mamalock You can refer

Hi Mamalock

There was no balloting for Haig Girls’ in phase 2c this year.

For school option in Geyland, you can refer to the discussion in this thread in the forum here.

Apart from Haig Girls’, the other schools do have a good number of balanced places.

Haig Girls School

This education system really put we working mum thru alot of stress.  First, rejected as Parent Volunteer (35 seats and 70+ pple applied), So go for Phase 2C ballot (52 vacancies and 80 + pple within 1km ballot for it ) Can you beat that??

Phase 2C Supp.. only limited seat and limited school!! The best part.. Still have to ballot if there is more demand then supply!!

What is the best choice? Within Geylang anybody knows?

 

 

 

haig girls school

hello alan,

did you get more information on haig girls? I was also thinking along the same line as you as I did not see the school in the pop list.

I am also thinking of putting my girl there…anyone else has daighters currently there?

Anyone can help? Thanks

Thinking of sending my girl to Haig Girls too

Will be going tru the Pri 1 registration this year. My 2 top choices : IJ Katong and Haig Girls. Heard from some friends that IJ is much more popular and needs balloting under Phase 2C. Looking tru the Balloting Stats, Haig Girls seems quite safe. I don’t want to go tru the stressful balloting as mentioned by many friends.

Really hope that I can get tru Phase 2C smoothly without balloting for Haig Girls. Any tips from anyone?

Haig Girl is definitely

Haig Girl is definitely highly recommended. Though we’re within 1 km of Tao Nan, we didn’t put our girl there. Seeing how TaoNan does higher chinese from P1 and we would likely have to ballot made us chose HGS.

But I do find it strange that their enrolment has dropped. In fact, among the schools in the Marine Parade/JooChiat/Katong area, other than TNS, HGS is the next best school in my opinion.

She’s grad in 2004 and did well enough to go to TKGS. Most of the girls from this school will move on to TKGS. She spent her carefree years there and in P1, had the honour of being in the original school grounds, that shabby old building.

She had a very caring teacher in her critical year, Mrs Khoo, who has since retired, I think. We were so grateful to her that, we sent her flowers during teachers’ day the following year.

 

 

  

Sending your girl to Haig Girls'

I don’t think you are missing anything. Haig Girls’ is a very established school. I was there in the 70’s to 80’s.  Results used to be better under their old principal Ms Bandara. But, they are improving and getting there again.  There are students with different nationalities in the school, so it will be a good exposure for the girls.

Besides, HGS its the only of 2 government girls primary school around (the other being RGPS). While the rest of the single sex govt schools have merged and become co-ed over the years, HGS has remained a girls school and this shows its relevance and staying power.  I would highly recommend HGS.   

 

Any one heard of Tao Nan Pre school?

Hi, I heard from someone that Tao Nan Primiary school has a pre school. Does any one of you know of its existance and how to be admitted to the preschool? Is there any preferred entry to Primary 1 through the preschool route?

Hi My girl will be P2 next

Hi My girl will be P2 next year with Haig Girls, honestly, this school has suprised me as Haig Girls was not my first choice in the beg. My girl is happy with the school/teacher and her P1 result is good too..without much of my attention and effort as I hardly have time to coach her on her homeworks 🙂

sending girl to Haig school

Hello everyone, this is my maiden posting. I am thinking of buying a property in Joo Chiat because Haig Girls’ school appeared to be academically inclined, but based on the popular ranking, it does not seemed to be favored by parents.  Am i missing something?  Appreciate any advice.  Thanks
