Primary 1 Students Can Register For 2021 Intake From 1 Jul

Entering primary school is the biggest threshold every 7-year-old in Singapore crosses in their education.

This year, this journey will begin online from Wednesday (1 Jul) for both parents and children alike who are due to begin Primary 1 in 2021, in light of Covid-19 social distancing measures.
