Catholic School in Singapore

    Hey everyone,
    I am looking for information on a school in Singapore (with husband of the Mother Mary in its name).
    Any ideas on the package, health insurance, housing allowance, what the school climate is like, work/life balance...
    I would be moving with a non-working wife and a small baby (currently 5 months old). Is a comfortable life in Singapore feasible on a single wage with two dependents?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!!

    Thanks Bytor for your pm.
    Much appreciated.
    Anyone have any experience with this particular school and/ or Singapore in general (for a young family on a single wage)?

    I can't give you specifics about that school, but can give you a ballpark idea. Can also advice on moving to Singapore when supporting a spouse and small baby. I'll start a conversation with you in case you're not allowed to start them yet.

    The school will send you all the information you need if you get through to an interview. It is a very good caring school. You will work hard but the package allows you to play hard. Supporting a family on even a good wage even in Singapore may prove difficult. Good Luck

    The package they offer is on their website or linked to the job advert generally, it looked decent when I checked it last time (both salary and housing allowance, with beakdown for single, family, etc). I don’t think it gets far better than that in Singapore.

    I've hear good things about it and their package is supposed to be excellent.
