Choosing your Secondary School – it doesn’t start in P6

Is your child in Primary School now? It doesn’t matter if he’s not in P6, steps to choose a secondary school can start now… and I’m not being kiasu or nor am I a Tiger Mum. After my experience with Nicole, I realised parents don’t have to wait till the PSLE results are out, to…




PSLE papers

PSLE – The Journey to getting all the answers right!
