Package - Singapore ‘united’ school

    New to this forum and hope I’ve not broken rules with the title.
    I have lived and worked as a relief teacher in Singapore before (as a dependent) and now me and my family would like to return to here or elsewhere in se Asia.
    I applied to this school for a post and was recently asked to do a 1 way video interview so I guess I am a little way through the interview process.

    Does anyone have any idea how the package is here? Would it be likely to include school places? What sort of accommodation allowance is given out these days?

    Have also applied to the school that has a sister in KL but not yet heard. Any knowledge of their package?

    Thank you

    The 'united' package is good. It includes school places for 2 dependents (with one teacher parent, may be more if both parents work at school, not sure), but I think only from Grade 1. The overall package is good.
    The other school has a reasonable package also but not as lucrative as the united school. I'll start a conversation with you - I live in Singapore with a family as the sole breadwinner.

    Hi migratingbird thanks so much. I actually have only 2 children so that would be okay. One would be grade 1 the other K1 - I wouldn’t be too worried about this though as when we lived there a few years ago my daughter went to local kindergarten and loved it so I’d be happy for him to do that a couple of years first !

    Would really appreciate a conversation- how do I do that is there a PM feature?

    Hi Migratingbird, if you don’t mind another conversation/pm I’d love to ask you about Singapore too?

    Hi Migratingbird
    I’m new here and looking at the ‘port closest to Calais’ school - if you know the one I mean I’d welcome your comments especially on salary as the chain is not renowned for paying too much.....
    TIA
