How quickly are schools being filled up for Primary 1 spots after the sibling registration in Phase 1 started and which are these schools? Parents, wondering which primary schools are your top picks?
Are you also wondering which schools are fast running out of spots already?
Nineteen schools have had more than half of their Primary 1 (P1) places filled by siblings of pupils currently studying at those schools, after the first phase of registration.
Princess Elizabeth Primary School topped the list, with 60 per cent of its places filled. Out of 200 spots, 120 were taken.
Other schools with over half of their available P1 spots already filled are: Nan Hua Primary School, Radin Mas Primary School, Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School, Rosyth School, and Rulang Primary School.
By comparison, only seven schools had filled more than half of their places after Phase 1 in last year's registration exercise.
Phase 1 is reserved for children whose siblings are currently in the school they wish to attend. All children registered under this phase are guaranteed places in the schools.
The results were announced by MOE on its website yesterday night (July 2).
Another school, Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Primary School, has exactly half of its 240 P1 places filled.
But some other popular schools still have more than half of their vacancies available.
At CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls' School (Primary), 141 of its 210 places are available, while Ai Tong School still has 157 of 300 places up for grabs. Raffles Girls' Primary School has 181 out of 270 slots unfulfilled and St Joseph's Institution Junior has 180 of 240 vacancies available.
