School syllabus is a lot lower than Singapore. I would say 2 to 3 years behind for primary school. Hence, I am sure you kids would love it as it's a lot less homework, stressful and competitive. However, it may get tougher in secondary school to align with Uni entrance standard at a later stage.
Hi donkuok,
I am from Singapore and moving to Perth next year and wondering how the school admission is like ? Was told that as long as we live within a school's "catchment zone" our kids will be offered a placement in that school? What if the number of applicants is more that what the school can offered? Is balloting required then?
Thanks
