In Partnership with Parents
To arrange for an appointment with teachers, write a short note in the student handbook to inform the teacher of your concerns. The school sees our parents as partners in developing the potential in each of our students by:
inculcating desirable social attitudes and values in our students;
ensuring our students do not bring excessive pocket money to school;
- advising our students not to carry expensive items for their safety;
- discouraging students from bringing mobile phones to school as there are public coin telephones available at the school canteen for students to use;
refraining students from carrying sharp objects such as pen knives, metal rulers or any other objects with the potential of causing hurt or injury (such objects, if brought to school, will be confiscated);
ensuring our students’ school/CCA attendance is regular;
working with the student to hand in work on time;
- discouraging students from bringing items which distract them from learning; and
- reinforcing safety.

We have set in place the necessary precautions and continuity plans to minimise disruptions to school activities. We will monitor students’ well-being and adopt the necessary mitigation measures to ensure their welfare, including stopping all outdoor activities, based on daily MOH Health Advisory. We request parents to inform us if your child has existing heart and lung conditions, such as asthma. Parents should also ensure that your child takes his/her medications and has these medications with him/ her according to his/her doctor’s instructions.
If your child is down with chicken pox, H1N1 or Hand-Foot-Mouth disease, please take your doctor’s advice and let your child rest at home. As these diseases are highly infectious, please do not bring your child to school unless he/she has fully recovered.
Students’ Medical Conditions

Insurance Coverage for Students
