It seems to be an open secret that many of the schools situated around Orchard Road/Boulevard are being forced to change their locations for whatever reasons. I have had a friend with children at OFS say that they were told in a newsletter this was the case, and another at ISS saying that she is aware of the same there and heard that Chatsworth would also move down within the next few years.
I have taken my child out of a school that was too far away from our home as it meant a very long day for a small person and that I wasn't able to be involved in any aspect of her school life as I work.
My question is simple - I am looking at all of the above schools as possibilities but do not want to place her in a school that is going to move and perhaps present the same problems - does anyone know if this is the case and where the schools may be moving to?
I have asked the schools themselves who tell me that it is completely untrue.
I have however had enough experience in the expat school system to be aware that they will not necessarily disclose this information if it means losing my custom. Not to mention the countless parents with children already attending these schools saying that they will be moving soon.
I do not want to be in the same situation in a year or two years of having to move schools again - we have decided to make Singapore our home and so I would like her to feel settled and have an environment and (hopefully) friends who remain with her throughout her schooling.
Can anyone shed some light?
