Dear Parents, the application for the Parent Volunteer Scheme for the 2020 Primary One Registration Exercise is now OPEN.

Eligibility: Applicable for children born between 2 Jan 2014 to 1 Jan 2015 (both dates inclusive) only


1.    Primary One Registration Exercise takes place during the 3rd quarter of the year prior to the admission year. Parents who are interested in applying as Parent Volunteers need to fill out the application form at the General Office during office hours, Mondays to Fridays from 8am to 5pm, excluding Public Holidays.


2.   The school reviews and selects applicants during the 2nd quarter of each year (the year prior to the P1 Registration Exercise). Selection is done based on the needs of the school, which may vary every year. Successful applicants will be notified by the end of the 2nd quarter in 2019. Parents may apply to volunteer their service at more than one school. You would need to check with the schools concerned about the application procedures.

Should you be selected, we seek your understanding to continue to support the school even if you have fulfilled the minimum requirement of 40 voluntary hours in the event that the school requires your continued assistance.

Should the number of Phase 2B applications exceed the number of places available for this phase, MOE will conduct a centralised balloting.
