Q: Does the Alumni Association issue other forms of documents to indicate that I am a member of the Alumni Association?

04) Phase 2A eligibility

As of 09 September 2021, MOE had announced the following amendment to phase 2A registration (https://www.moe.gov.sg/primary/p1-registration/changes-to-p1-registration):

Combine current Phases 2A(1) and 2A(2) into a single Phase 2A

We will combine Phases 2A(1) and 2A(2) into a single Phase 2A. 

The increase in reserved places for Phase 2C will result in fewer places in earlier phases. If we continue to maintain the differentiation of priority between Phase 2A(1) and Phase 2A(2) registrants, we expect that several schools would end up with relatively few or even no places left for Phase 2A(2) registrants. 

A single Phase 2A ensures that all Phase 2A(2) registrants continue to have a chance to register under Phase 2A. This would also better achieve the objective of providing priority admission for MOE Kindergarten children, who are currently eligible for Phase 2A(2), to support their transition to P1.

Phase 2A(1) registrants will continue to be able to register under Phase 2A.

 

 

Q: When will I need to register my child for P1? He/she is born in 2017.

A: Please refer to the MOE website for more information. https://beta.moe.gov.sg/primary/p1-registration/

05) Phase 2A registration

Q: What documents do I need to bring during the registration exercise?

A: On top of your membership card, please refer to MOE website for the required documents as they may change from time to time.
