Dear Parents/Guardians of Primary 5/6 PL-Lites,

The Singapore education landscape has changed tremendously since the time we were in school. To help parents be more informed of the changes, Mrs Quek Li Gek, Principal/PLMGS(Sec) will be conducting a short sharing on “Understanding the Latest Changes in the Secondary and Post-secondary Education Landscape”. It will be good to bring your daughter along for the talk, if she is able to attend.

This sharing session aims to provide parents with an understanding of:
  • The latest changes in the secondary and post-secondary school landscape.
  • How we can choose a school that best caters to our child’s strengths and interests?

Questions that will be discussed include:
  1. What are the current options in Secondary education?

  2. What are the implications of choosing the Integrated Programme (IP)? How does this route compare to the 4-year GCE O-Level and 2-year A-Level route?

  3. What are Specialised Independent Schools?

  4. What is Full Subject-based Banding in Secondary schools?

  5. How are choices in Secondary education linked to Post-secondary options?

  6. How does the GCE O-Levels compare to the International Baccalaureate (IB) qualifications?

  7. How do I guide my daughter in making a correct choice after the release of the PSLE results?

  8. What is subject-based banding at the Secondary Level?

  9. How can a student who has been streamed into NA or NT stream complete Poly/University education?

  10. Is Mother Tongue important at Secondary School and Post-secondary levels?
