Brother's old school ties snag sis a spot

Saloni Sinha (centre), six, will start Primary 1 next year at Henry Park Primary School - thanks to her brother Divyaansh Sinha (far right), 13.

She snared a coveted spot at the Bukit Timah school, which had all but nine of its Primary 1 slots snapped up when the latest phase of the registration exercise closed yesterday.

She could secure a place in this phase of registration because her brother is a former pupil of the school.

Other schools with high take-up rates include Ai Tong and Red Swastika.
