99 schools to conduct balloting for Primary 1 registration

A total of 99 out of 190 schools will hold balloting exercises in Phase 2C to decide which six-year-olds are given a place in their school for Primary 1 next year.

These schools, which include Radin Mas Primary at Bukit Purmei, Nan Chiau Primary at Anchorvale, and Kong Hwa School at Guillemard Road, received more applications than vacancies in this phase, which ended on Aug 1.

This stage of registration is for all children eligible for Primary 1 next year but who did obtain a place in any of the earlier phases. When the number of applications exceeds the number of vacancies available at the schools, priority is given to Singapore citizens first before home-to-school distance is considered.

Parents can witness the balloting process on Aug 6. For more information on schools which will be conducting balloting, visit http://www.moe.gov.sg/education/admissions/primary-one-registration/bal…
