So you might want to call MOE for some more clarification so you don't run foul of any laws here.Primary One Registration
Under the Compulsory Education Act, Singapore citizens born after 1 January 1996 and residing in Singapore are required to attend national primary schools regularly. Thus, a child born between 2 January 2001 and 1 January 2002 has to be registered at the 2007 Primary One Registration Exercise for admission to Primary One in January 2008.
I think nowadays child's race is not mentioned at all on Birth Certificate. Mother's and father's are.sundaymorningstaple wrote:ChixChix, what is your child's father's race?
That is what determines what the child's mother tongue is. Sounds stupid and it is. I had a similar problem but went to war with the MOE many years ago and beat them with their own rules. (If your children are of mixed parentage check their birth Certs as to their race. You will find that they are not Eurasian, but that they are the same race as their father.
Fair enough, The last one I've seen was my son's and it's 19 years old now. However, up to 5 years ago anyway, their NRIC's still show the father's race as the child's race. So even if the BC doesn't show the child's Race it still shows the Father's race which is what is used.JayV wrote:
