Singapore school holiday = busy 1st week of Sept?

Doe sthe first week of September tend to get super busy in the Perhentians due to the Singapore school holiday?

I'm debating going either first week of September or last week of September. Pro of going the last week of September is to avoid the crowds but I'm not sure the weather will still be good as October approaches.

HI amz155

Usually during the school holidays alot of Singaporeans would visit surrounding areas where they can easily drive to, such as Melaka, KL, Genting. Perhentian islands is quite far for a drive from Singapore for families bringing their children, but then again there are flights they can take. I think to be on the safe side you can try the later part of Sept. The monsoon seasons here usually don't start until after Oct.

Cheers!
