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

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.

._.
gxgx they are getting elite genes.

If you need to ask this question in edmw...

You probably believed them when they said "all good schools are good schools"

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.
really meh, I hear things like my friend father buy him this elite handphone, why you never buy for me. his father buy him playstation, I also want.

there are some really good primary schs in HDB estate areas also. u just need to find them out. i think SK area got 1. every year got ballot one.

good in this sense means the school grooms the kids to be motivated in learning ba.

not compare house or car

So as you know, my baby is coming out end of the year. yesterday I catch up with my friend, he say need to plan for primary school liao. I say isn't it abit too early? He say no. If you want BTO near branded school, you need to apply now, and when BTO completed, just nice your child can apply primary school. He also say if you want to start as community leader, you need to also start serving now.


I studied in neighbourhood primary school myself but the more I google, the more I realised Singapore parents are really very kiasu, got this website called kiasu parents just talk about primary school, and I must admit the allure of my child entering a branded school does sound attractive. My friend told me, if no BTO, see which areas of resale appeal to you. Pay abit more nevermind, don't let cheap BTO price affect the future of your child. Yes you pay lower BTO price, but your child future will be affected just because he does not live near a branded school. Next time when he is older as a teenager, you want to apply BTO live punggol also nobody cares.


Is my friend right? Really so cut throat nowadays in primary school? Secondary school or JC I can understand but primary school level???


Screwed up society is screwed up. So if your kid go to good school n still cannot make it then how? Push him/her down the window.

I get that but not sure if effort and money is worth it.

money, buy expensive resale, give up bto chance

time and effort, volunteer at school or serve as community leader.

I guess the answer I am looking for by asking this, are all these effort and money worth it, when PM says all primary schools are the same?
