What else do you need to know?

The will be 20% of places in affiliated secondary schools will be reserved for non-affiliated students. Twenty Seven secondary schools in Singapore currently offer their affiliated primary school students priority in the Secondary 1 admission. From 2019, these schools will have to reserve one-fifth of the places for students with no affiliation priority, to ensure these schools remain accessible to all students regardless of their backgrounds.

Several secondary schools in mature housing estates have merged in recent years after being hit by falling student enrolments. Eleven have merged with others in the last two years, including Balestier Hill Secondary School in Novena and Henderson Secondary School in Bukit Merah in 2017.

 

And there is more…13 new MOE-run kindergartens will open in high demand areas in 2019

The proposed development, with an estimated gross floor area of 28,335 sq metres, consists of two blocks of seven-storey classrooms, one block of three-storey canteen and a multi-purpose hall, with construction work expected to be completed by fourth quarter 2020.  All the blocks will be interconnected via a deck at the second storey and link bridges on higher floors.
