It is not abt the Sch

It is the ppl who attended the sch.

The goot Sch along BT are attended by minister son and daughter. That makes a lot of difference in children circle of friends
that's what I think also, most likely most of them stay condo or landed, I dunno how my HDB peasant child can survive in that environment. Wait they boast to my child they go where vacation, go where eat good food, buy what branded stuff etc. I can only bring my child go Malaysia and eat hawker food.

Yes elitism must be bred from young.statistic also show that 50 percent of RI cohort comes from family backgrounds that are elite themselves,staying in 5 room flat and above.

So if u are a peasant with questionable dna,it's best u enroll ur child in a elite school so some of their elite characteristics might rub off on ur son/daughter even though ur genes suck and not too bright.so ur child will seem like a pseudo elite.

Very important.

Go good school, mix with elites. Compare results, CCA achievements

Go bad school, mix with ah bengs. Compare fighting skills, caning or boys home sentence achievement

doc say its boy leh... how?
Novena area loh (around TTSH there), aim for SJI. i think boon keng hdb still within 2km. might need to check.

St Hilda's primary is apparently very very popular.

Catholic high around BT if u want try.

u mostly playing the 'house within 2km' game.

anyway, im not elitist, but a good school will help your child's growth. my girls are in an all girls school, you can say they really jiak kantang at this point of time liao. the topics they bring up are also very different from the neighborhood primary sch kids ~ in a mature sense. like, you won't think a kid that young would start talking about these things.

Kids don't care about that ****....either they get along with each other or they don't.they make friends because they have a blast together and enjoy each other's company.only adults think about that bullcrap.
