Many couples who buy house do not consider whether the house is within 1km to the nearest Primary School. It is an important criteria especially for couples who plan to start a family. It is only when I was enrolling my daughter for her Primary School that I realise how important it was.
My house was within 1km radius of her primary school. It was lucky that she got a position after going through the balloting. In this case, all applicants outside 1km of the school were disqualify. The unsuccessful applicants will have to look for another school which has vacancy. Only 5 Primary School need not go through the balloting process this year. There will be more pressure in the next few years. There are parents who buy resale flat within 1km of the school to boast their child chances of entering the school.
