Unhappy Fathers, is a good primary school really that important for your child?

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???

Upbringing most important, it doesn't matter which school he/she goes to. What you do/teach him, he will follows. Teach him the right moral values.

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

In my experience, pri schs all roughly the same and doing well or not depends on family support
Secondary schs have differences though obviously
