Going Secondary School…what’s next?


A month has almost passed since the release of PSLE results.   Thanks to those aunties and uncles who are concerned about Brendan’s PSLE result and those friends who were as anxious as us on the day of release last month.

Brendan did pretty well … with NO “Bs, Cs or Fs” and with A* :) Well enough to meet the standard of the secondary school that he has earlier been given a confirmed place through Direct School Admission (DSA) for Integrated Programme.

We are glad that we let him apply for Direct School Admission and went through the tests and interview.  Maybe it’s what we call “Stress at first and less stress now”.

At least, with such intense competition after PSLE result release and when school posting result is announced today, he needs not worry about the secondary school that he will be posted to.




As he proceeds to his secondary school for registration tomorrow, I can’t hold back my feeling that time really flies.

….7 years ago, his papa and I put in effort and got shortlisted for voluntary service for our boy to get into one of the local top primary school which is quite near to home but not within the distance range to be allocated by MOE. 

….7 years later, we tried our best again to support our son to fulfil his wish of going to his dream school and give him the moral support for his Direct School Admission exercise. Yap! I put my career to a pause to spend more time with Brendan for his preparation.  No regrets and the same sentiment :”Nothing gives me a greater sense of accomplishment now than my child’s achievements.”

I appreciate how our boy has illustrated so many instances of perseverance, always setting higher target for himself despite tough competition in a good school and haven’t given up with more challenges. 

I truly appreciate how we need to prepare beforehand, discuss and put in efforts to go this far.  I guess in years to come, our boy will be getting fully independant and might not need his parents’  help anymore.

Our moral support will, however, be with him always to achieve his dreams ….


Son, continue to work hard to achieve your next level of dreams. We remain proud of you:)
