·     Application for FAS for Primary 1 to Primary 5 students, in 2022:

Parents/Guardians with children studying in different Government or Government-aided schools need to complete only ONE application form for all the school-going children and submit the form to the school of ANY child. The school which receives the application form will inform parents/guardians of the outcome for all the children.


NOTE: For parents/guardians who applied for FAS through the sibling’s school, please submit the approval letter to Rivervale Primary School’s General Office as soon as the approval letter is received in order to better facilitate the issuance of the free textbooks and school attire.


·     Application for FAS for Primary 6 students going to Secondary 1, in 2022:

Primary 6 students can apply for FAS at their primary school before the release of the PSLE results in November 2021. The primary school will process the application and inform parents/guardians of the outcome. After the release of the posting results, a copy of the approval letter is to be submitted to the secondary school to alert them of the grant.
