Hokkien Huay Kuan

Dear parents,

my girl is born in 2011. And from what i know, tao nan school does not accept PV anymore.

so we thinking of the hokkien huay kuan route.

Can i know how early should i join hokkien huay kuan and do i need to do volunteer work for the clan too?

Also when will hokkien huay kuan issue the letter of recommendation? I heard that the clan does not issue such letters for all members but on a case by case basis. So by when will they issue out the letter so that we will know if we have a chance at phase 2B?

Thanks a lot.

PS: I called up both the pri sch and the clan but they dont seem to say much.

TNS if failed in phase 2C

 hi 3CsMom
 
If you failed to get into TNS in phase 2C which balloting in past years had been for within 1km, you are left with limited choices in phase 2C supplement
 
Based on past years’ statistics, CHIJ Katong would either be fully filled at phase 2C or left with a few places for phase 2C supplement. Last year, only 4 places were left and all taken up by those staying within 1km. Similar situation over at Ngee Ann Primary.
 
You can analyse the past years’ registration details here:

Why not join the rest of us in the forums? there are a lot of discussion on which schools to choose and about the registration processes.
 
Good Luck!

Thanks tankee! Just in case

Thanks tankee!

Just in case we couldn’t get into TNS, which are the schools you would recommend around that area? I know CHIJ Katong is just across the road. What do you think of the school? We have twin girls and a boy whom is 2 years younger. My thinking is that if my girls can’t get into TNS, we will try CHIJ Katong and then when it is time for my boy to register, we will try TNS again. Your input is much appreciated.

TNS - PV within 1km

Hi 3CsMom
 
During my time, Tao Nan started accepting application for PV from 1Jan and stopped once they have sufficient number of applicants. I’m not sure whether there is any shortlisting done at this stage.
 
The applicants were then invited to attend a briefing covering the past year TNS acdemic achievement, registration statistics and PV duites. A number of applicants withdrawn their PV application when they realised that their HHK membership & PV parents are both in same phase 2B.
 
The remaining applicants then went through a balloting for PV places. As our names were picked, we chose our PV duty slots. Some applicants will be unsuccessful either due to name not picked or unable to perform remaining available duties’ slots.
 
For the past few years, phase 2B balloting for TNS had been for between 1-2 km. However, this may soon change as there are getting more & more condos springing up within 1km to TNS.
 
Good Luck !
