Every parent cares about the child’s education. From the year 2022, the new home-school distance rule is implemented for primary one registrations. With this new rule, primary one priority admissions, if it comes down to a ballot, will be based on the distance between the student’s residence and the school’s boundary/ fence/ border instead of its centre. But honestly, for Enchante, it does not matter, as two very good Primary schools fall within its 1km range.
How does distance affect your child’s primary 1 registrationIf your chosen primary school has more registrants than vacancies, priority admission will be given based on your child's citizenship and the Home-School Distance category, which is in turn based on the address used for registration.
Priority admission is given in this order:
- Singapore Citizens (SC) living within 1km of the school.
- SCs living between 1km and 2km of the school.
- SCs living outside 2km of the school.
- Permanent Residents (PR) living within 1km of the school.
- PRs living between 1km and 2km of the school.
- PRs living outside 2km of the school.
Two very good primary schools within 1km of EnchanteFor Enchante, it is within 1km of two very good schools. These two schools are almost always subject to balloting at the latter phases of the registration. The early phases are usually taken up by the children of the alumni of these schools. It is expected as these are good schools and their successful parents will want to let their children study where they had.
But this meant high competition for primary school places for these schools. It is not easy to get your child in!
So simply from the point of priority of Primary 1 admission, buying a unit at Enchante gives you the advantage of not only increasing your chances of enrolling your child in these two top schools. Being close to these schools also meant being able to wake up at a more reasonable hour in the morning and able to get back home faster than anyone else in the afternoon.
More time for fun ! A Happier Child !
