Angry parents demand to know why Zoe Tay’s son was accepted into Henry Park Primary School

Angry parents whose children are deprived of a place in Henry Park Primary School are reportedly demanding to know why MediaCorp’s artiste Zoe Tay’s son Brayden was accepted into it after being rejected by another school Nanyang Primary School.
Both Nanyang and Henry Park Primary Schools are among the top five primary schools in Singapore and are extremely popular among parents.
Zoe Tay started volunteering for Nanyang Primary School since 2009. However, she lives in Holland Road, more than 2km from Nanyang Primary and may be the main reason why her son was unable to get a slot.
Zoe Tay’s husband Mr Chioh is an alumni of Henry Park Primary School.
For those familiar with the Singapore Primary 1 registration stages, those who failed to get their first choice are usually forced to select from the remaining ‘less popular’ schools.
When contacted by the media, Zoe Tay debunked the rumors and said her son was not enrolled in either school.
