  • Parents are advised to concurrently participate in the Secondary 1 posting process and indicate a maximum of 6 choices of mainstream secondary schools (in order of preference) after the release of PSLE results.
  • If your child is offered a place in Pathlight School, parents are to inform the mainstream school that your child is posted to, of your decision if you accept the placement in Pathlight.
