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.
It is screwed up

Ever wonder if the child one day come to realize that he/ she not in the top school nor average but sub-standard neighborhood school; and blaming parents for this

Think want go good school also must have the capability. Not say stay close can go in. Everyone want go good school, so usually the demand is more than supply. So, no matter how one plan, it will not guarantee future event one. If no the capability, then think probably settle for something lesser to avoid the heartache later after all the time, money and effort end up nothing much.

Agreed. I know of kids who went to Rosyth and struggled like crazy. Last class every year. It's a pressure cooker. And of course, parents must be very invested and involved if they really want their child to be able to cope with increased demands.

If you are serious you will know that for some elite schools, even with phase 2C 1km you also don't need to dream. Don't even talk about Nanyang, Henry Park, AC Primary, even 2nd tiers also better pray hard.

As a father of 2, let me tell you that if your kid does not go into an excellent primary school right from the beginning, his life will be ruined. When he grows up, he will lament that you haven't done enough for him.

You want him to remember that? No?

Then do yourself a favour and listen to your friend's advice.

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.

Catholic high in Bishan leh
