The Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) and Pan Island Expressway (PIE) are nearby, which will allow residents to reach the Central Business District (CBD) and Changi via the expressways.
Sora: Proximity to Schools
Following a revision to the Ministry of Education’s home-school distance scheme, Primary 1 registration exercises will use a shortest distance calculation between a point around the school and the applicant’s home to calculate the distance between schools and homes. Consequently, this move will alleviate parents’ concerns about distances between schools and their homes.
Many primary schools are within 1km and 1-2km of Sora residences, namely Lakeside Primary, Boon Lay Garden Primary, Rulang Primary, Shuqun Primary, Fu Hua Primary, Jurong Primary and Yuhua Primary. Secondary schools nearby include Jurong Secondary, Yuan Ching Secondary and River Valley High.
