What is meant by the niche area in Student centred Opportunities in AeRospace industries Applied Learning Program (ALP)?
S.O.A.R.(Student centered Opportunities for AeRospace Industry) is our school ALP which aims to develop in our students knowledge and skills Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) that are relevant to the Aviation industry. Students joining the school will also be equipped with 21st century competencies in their ALP lessons.
How does it value-add to my child?
By developing a curriculum based on the aerospace and aviation management industry, our students experience a range of aviation related activities and enrichment. Your child may be selected to be in tier 2 of the ALP where he/she may represent the school in competitions. Your child will also receive opportunities to enhance their portfolio through relevant AEMs, visits to industry partners and understand the career opportunities better. They can also pursue further in this area through visits to industry partners and education institutions.
My child is an international student / Home-schooled / returning Singapore Citizen / SPR not studying in a local school. Can he/she apply for DSA?
For all candidates who are not studying in MOE mainstream primary schools, they are to obtain a Registration Number (RGxxxxxxx) from MOE Customer Service Centre upon the start of the DSA Exercise, which will be made known through the media in early May.
For all International Students, students are required to take the AEIS (Admissions Exercise for International Students) test for any admission into mainstream secondary schools. Kindly visit the MOE website here for more information
For information on returning Singaporeans, kindly find the information here.
Do my child/ward have to take the PSLE?
Students who take up Confirmed Offers or Waiting List Offers by schools during the DSA-Sec Exercise are still required to take the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE). Those who take up Confirmed Offers are guaranteed a place in the school that has extended them an offer, provided that their PSLE results meet the minimum requirement for a course [Express/ Normal (Academic)/ Normal (Technical)] offered by the school. Should the child obtain a PSLE score that lies between 2 streams, he/she will be able to opt for the preferred stream.
Can my child/ward apply for transfer after getting a confirmed place?
Similar to previous years, students who have been admitted to a school through the DSA-Sec Exercise will not be able to participate in the centralised Secondary One Posting Exercise. Students who have been successfully allocated to a school via the DSA-Sec Exercise are expected to honour their commitment to their posted DSA-Sec schools and will thus not be allowed to transfer to another school after the release of the PSLE results.
