PV for Nan Hua

Dear successful PV,

May i check whether you have any advice on how to be considered for the PV?

As in what to propose for the school etc.

Nan Hua Primary PV - no response?

Hi! Anyone here??

I would like to ask about PV at Nan Hua. Do they usually get back to you if you are rejected? Any timeline on when they will reply you?

In July (2015), I sent in my application to be a PV (for my child born in 2011). Till date, there has been no reply from the school on how my application went. I called the school to ask and the answer was that they are 
still reviewing, there is no deadline as to when you will get an answer. I emailed the principal too, but no reply too 🙁

Hope to get some advice here. Thank you!

Re: Twinning Programme


I am an ex student at NHPS in the GEP and I really feel that the twinning programme is quite useless. Its basically the people who got through the first round of GE selection but failed the second round, although “by a narrow margin”. And the principal always gives talks on how the GEPers and Twinning people are all talented and how we shouldn’t look down on anyone who isn’t GEP but seriously you really don’t do anything in twinning. They take Higher Chinese with us, as well as social studies (some years twinning takes GEP social studies some years they don’t so its quite confusing) and PE and music and other enrichment courses, but the main courses which are more advanced, like English, Math and Science, they take the mainstream courses.

This kind of defies the purpose of being in twinning because you don’t get to learn the GE syllabus properly, plus you don’t get to learn the normal syllabus completely as well. So they’re like half hanging in there… Many of my classmates share my view too, as well as their parent. Although twinning may seem to be the “smarter class compared to mainstream”, there are really many disadvantages. In fact, the only two advantages I can think of being in twinning is that you stay in the same class for 3 years like the mainstream instead of in GEP where they shift you around, and you get to rub shoulders with GEP people, and feel happy that you are kind of above the mainstream people although that point is debatable. 





Like i said in another NHPS post, i am an ex-student so I know that PV is not easy.

U hv to do stuff like direct traffic, help out in sci lab, recess eg. BUT, u gotta have a resume with QUALITY. I mean, they wont take u in if you are 60+, no experience, and generally with nothing. At least be good at sth, eg. Helping with the children to make sure they do not run in canteen.


On behalf on NH, though i apologise to those who applied for PV but did not get a reply. Though, (duh), NH principal cannot spend all day writing appliccations. Naturaally, (duh again)< if u dont get a reply…. -meh, u nvr get.





I am NHPS graduate. I was in the twinning prog.

The teachers there are friendly, the school environment is nice, and the pupils are great too. There are good facilities like the Indoor Sports Hall (EG.)

The TWINNING prog is very meaningful as it allows twinning pupils to bond with GEP pupils. Twinning people basically take (math english science) mainstream syllabus while taking (chinese, cme, social studies, pe, music) with the gep-ers. So, there is a TAG class ( EMS) and form  class (with GEP-ers). Usually the main people in the prog are people who have 1) been in NH since P1 (Cos they look at ur results too) and 2) ur GEP test results. I got in cos of both. I think u need to pass round one. There are a handful of pupils which transfer school after being invited, though.

All i can say is, NHPS is great! Trust me! No doubt, please go for NHPS! I SUPPORT!

Hi hyperactive,   Your reply

Hi hyperactive,


Your reply is what I have been trying to get from the parents whose have children in NHPS. But no one have given me any comments of the school. It really gives me a great overview of the school. I now know where i should place my kid. Thank you very much.

ACS or NAN Hua

 Hi Donsoh,


I hope my experience can help u.

My boy was from NHPS from mid P1 (returned from overseas) to end of P3. He was offered GEP at the end of P3 & we chose to transfer him to ACS(P) despite NHPS offering GEP.

He managed to get into NHPS as we were lucky in the balloting exercise & tot we would just do leave of absence as we did not plan to be back. He was not doing Chinese when we were overseas.

Was happy that he could go into NHPS when we were back as we tot that the Chinese environment would help immerse him in the Chinese language and help motivate him.

Generally OK with NHPS but found it too academic and not holistic enough. CCAs quite limited and no real emphasis on sports except for volleyball, table tennis. 

His Chinese did not improve tremendously as we hoped as most of the students  in schools still converse in English. English standards in NHPS is ok, not superb. He went into the best class after the streaming in P2 and I realized that there was a big proportion of students from China in the class. NHPS is very popular with China PRs. Chinese teacher was lousy, maybe assumed they were good and thus no need for much teaching? My boy constantly felt demoralized as students from China were constantly given more opportunities and exposure to Chinese related activities. Since my boy was not really enjoying himself and we did not see the benefit of his interest in Chinese improving, we opted for the transfer. We also preferred the ex principal who went over to Nan Yang and that served as another push factor.

In comparison, the Chinese teachers in ACS seem to work much harder, a lot of additional material (I could be bias as well cause it could be because he is in the GEP stream?, i am not sure)

We have received some nasty comments from acquaintances saying we r giving him an easier way out but ultimately, I think education in Singapore is a long journey to be enjoyed.

Choose the school with the culture u think will suit your kid more cause every child is different.

PV for Nan Hua Primary School


I have recently submitted the PV application form. Can anyone advise how the process goes after this ? Would there be an interview with the Principal ? If so, how to prepare for the interview ?

If there is no reply from them, how long before we should call and check ? Are we supposed to wait for phone call or thru letter ?

PS- Understand they have a new principal now.

Thanks ahead.


Twinning Programme

Hi all,

Would like to find more of the twinning prog in nan hua pri.  Any of your kid(s) is in the prog? Is it as good as it sounds?  Pls advise.

PV for Nan Hua

Hi, would to check how should the proposal be written & what they needs in order to be selected as PV?

PV for NanHua

Hi all,

Does the school not accept PV or are they looking at certain form of PV only?

How are other schools surrounding Clementi & Bt. Timah like?

No reply at all..

Hi G639, I applied 2 months ago with 2 proposals. Sadly, they did not even bother to reply.. even after I emailed and called the school a few times.. at least if they told me that I was unsuccessful, I would know my fate.. but not.. just left in limbo..  

Well.. I have since moved on..

You may want to check out other schools like Clementi Primary…

PV for Nan Hua Primary School

Dear all,

Recently, I tried to apply for parent volunteer service for Nan Hua Primary School but got rejected by them. Please tell me what should I do. I am staying 1KM from the school and it will be easier for us if our kids are studying in a nearby school.

Parent Volunteer Scheme

We submitted proposals for parent volunteer scheme to Nanhua 2 months back but unsuccessful. Can you pls advise which type of volunteer service are they looking at?

We’re staying near Chinese Garden and are looking for good schools near Clementi, Jurong or Bt Timah areas. Which one will you recommend so that the chances of getting admission is higher?
