As you've said, the pecking order for schools is Citizens, PRs then EP holders so my understanding (I've never tried & my ex-colleagues who were looking into it ended up returning to the UK) is that it will be a case of having to apply & accept any public schooling that you're offered (if any!) rather than being able to choose. Have you tried asking MoM via their online enquirer facility... http://www.mom.gov.sg/contact-us
I was browsing MOM website and may only contact them via phone, no email?! (cry). I'll try to get more information from other official websites and also my friends. If there are still any other things that I should take note, appreciate your advice! Thanks so much!
Hi JB, On schooling matter you mentioned" which in Sg you don't" means I can only apply to get my kids into school but do not know which school will be assigned? Or will be assigned to the nearest to where I stay? But my friend told me to get the kids school only once I get my PR (after approximately 9 months employment?). Else would be much expensive. However, I have been searching around but do not know how much higher. The MOE website only state rates for PR and Citizens.
