Social Responsibility in Safeguarding the Well-being of our School Community

Dear Parents/ Guardians, 

Social Responsibility in Safeguarding the Well-being of our School Community 

1.      As Term 2 commences, we are mindful of the rapidly developing COVID-19 situation and we have stepped up measures in school to keep your child/ward safe. The additional precautionary measures in our school include:  

a.            Students and staff who have travelled overseas during the March holidays will not report to school for 14 days upon their arrival to Singapore. 

b.            CCAs and school-based after-school programmes will be suspended until 5 Apr 2020. 

c.            Students will adopt an assigned fixed seating arrangement in classrooms and in the canteen. 

d.            Students will carry out a daily wipe-down routine for spaces that they have used.   


2.      To further safe-guard our school community, we seek your assistance in the following: 

a.       If any household member(s) has returned from overseas within the past 14 days and develops a fever or starts to display flu-like symptoms, please ensure that he/she gets necessary medical attention as soon as possible.

While waiting for the outcome of medical diagnosis, we seek your understanding and cooperation in informing us immediately and keeping your child/ward at home. Please be assured that the school will minimise disruption to your child's learning by making arrangements for Home-Based Learning. 

b.      Please remind your child to exercise good personal hygiene practices, social responsibility and safe distancing measures even when they are not school. Students are strongly encouraged to avoid crowded places, gatherings and situations of prolonged mixing that could increase the risk of inter-class or inter-school transmission.  


3.      We all play an important part in times of crisis. Your vigilance and assistance will help us to keep our school as a safe place for learning for all. Together, we can get through this.
