pri 1 enrol in St Andrew Junior
hi parents, im a divocee and my son is going pr 1 next year. thought of enrolling him in st andrew juniour as its near my wrk place and easier for me to send him along the way. Any parents know if there's any chance for me to get him registered in the school or donations that can be made? I be looking for a property near the school mayb potong pasir,after i sell off my current house with my ex. if any parents have similar experience, do share. it would be a great help. ?
Tough school to get into. Staying near will help if you are not currently an alumni since under current regulations, homeowners who live within 1km from a school will be given priority during the primary school registration exercise. However do take note that as of 2015, there is a minimum stay requirement for parents who want their children to gain priority admission to schools based on distance – they’ll need to live in the property for 30 months by the start of the registration exercise.Read more
yes2 tough school, my ex is a st andrew student. not sure if he can coporate on this,but wnt want to hope soo high for him to settle all the paper wrk etc. anyway my 1st daughter is in St Margaret,it just luck for me tonget in the school base on donations..lm not sure how my luck this time. happen everytime whenever the kids gg start school and us parents need to choose a school for them. haiz.
I remember if house within 1 km and if you do volunteering will have chance
My understanding is that July is the registration, for volunteer works you need to ballot and complete a certain number to be for phase 2B. House address if not update not sure in time. Can check if MP can help?Read more

- Parents, kindly give me your opinion without any derogatory remarks. My girl is 4yr plus. She was born end of the year. We thought that she would be in K1 next year. After half of the year passed, someone mentioned that she is 5yo this year and should be in K1 this year, not next year. Singapore Children's Society dropped by my place when I am not around, regards my girl not being in preschool. We have more than 1 children below age of 6. I am their only caregiver. I intend to start working as we are getting our BTO keys early or mid next year. Currently living in North East area and husband is working near current home (15 mins bus ride away), new place is at North area (20mins - 1hr bus ride away from the current place). I suggested placing the children in Childcare so I can look for a job. Husband suggested sending our 4yo to pre-school only near current home or his workplace asap. If you were me, would you: 1. Place 4yo in pre-school near current home asap for now. 2. Place 4yo in pre-school near husband workplace asap for now. 3. Place all in childcare near current home asap. 4. Place all in childcare near husband workplace asap. 5. Place all in childcare near new place asap and look for a job near new place. Please also note we are facing financial difficulties and intend to approach FSC and SSO for assistance if need to place our children in CC. And that our current location most pre-school and CC are full. However, more CC and pre-school are coming up too. Appreciate all your input. Thank you!
