North Carolina's High Country, situated in the state's northwest region among the Blue Ridge Mountains, phrazle is a wonderful place to take the kids in August thanks to the pleasant temperatures and many outdoor activities. One of them is the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is often referred to as "America's Favorite Drive" due to the abundance of natural beauty, wildlife, and recreational opportunities it provides. The Boone Greenway is a beautiful picnicking spot open to walkers, bikers, strollers, wheelchair users, and dogs on leashes in Boone. In town, the Horton Hotel is the best boutique option. Tweetsie Railroad is a family-friendly amusement park and zoo located close by in Blowing Rock. You may take a stroll over the Mile High Swinging Bridge at Grandfather Mountain, or take a carriage ride and see a historic home at Moses H. Cone Memorial Park. Mystery Hill, an interesting local site, is close by, while Chetola Resort has many different types of accommodation. Banner Elk Winery and Villa is the first winery in the High Country, and it also offers lodging and award-winning wines.

Re: PR Application Chances

Little bit of clarification, if I may....

When it comes to Chinese ancestry there are other hierarchies that are taken into consideration which will give you a better inkling as to what you are up against and what ICA is actually capable of. First of all the Chinese who are from Malaysia stand the best chance of gaining PR as most there already have either close or distant relatives here in Singapore as this was part of Malaysia until separation in '65, unless, of course, it should turn up that the grandparents were members of the Chinese Communist part back in the day. One step down are Indonesian Chinese, assuming they have the relevant older government paperwork to proof their ancestry. Or other Chinese documents to proof this. This can be family household census data, or documents showing the owners names and their Chinese names. Further down the list are Philippines, Vietnamese, Myanmar Chinese At the bottom of the list are PRC, HK, Taiwanese Chinese. The last 6 countries may .....

Re: MOE exemption for children of SG teachers in international schools

❰❰ Quote:
Thank you, NYY1. Yes, I have read that. However, 2 questions:

(1) I am told that even if the school does not need to get an exemption / waiver, the parents still have to separately file for an exemption? Is that incorrect?

(2) Is that policy applicable across all international schools? Or does UWC have a special arrangement with the MOE?

Thank you, again.
❱❱
I don't know the answer to your first question. I would think not, but I am no longer close to this process (the exemption criteria and process may have changed over the years). On your second question, I would think all schools are subject to the same rules about when a waiver is needed and how to get it. Schools may have discretion over the admission criteria/priority (Tanglin's website is different from UWC's).

Quite frankly, you are probably better off staying on PR for an extended period of time. If you are already a teacher in one of .....
