Balloting for Primary School

Due to insufficient vacancy at Admiralty Primary School, my daughter must go through the balloting process. It will be held on this Thursday at the school multi purpose hall.
I have check that all the neighbouring primary school within 1KM of my home has to go through balloting. The government has encouraged us to have more child but getting a vacancy in school is also difficult. If we are unsuccessful in the ballot, the school assigned to us maybe 2 KM away from our home.
This lack of vacancy has prompted some parents to do volunteer work at school which they are interested to enrol in. You must be a volunteer at the school two years before your child is due to enrol. The motive is not to do free volunteering but to secure a primary school position for the child. I wish all parents the best in primary schools that balloting is needed.
