2. Digital photo for student ID card

The photo must be:

  • White background
  • JPG / PNG format
  • Portrait 
  • Minimum 640 pixels tall x 480 pixels wide

3. Update your contact details

Update your address or temporary Singapore address and phone number to contact you during the first week of school.

4. Submit your child's immigration / NRIC data

If your family is new to Singapore or your child is a Student's pass holder, please make sure you submit one of the following before the start of school:

  • In-Principle Approval letter (IPA)
  • Digital photograph front and back of the green immigration card

Your child cannot start school without a valid pass (Dependant's pass, Student's pass, Diplomatic pass, Immigration Exemption Order, Long-Term Visit Pass with Letter of Consent from ICA, Singapore Permanent Resident or Singapore citizenship).
