The school will grant leave only on compassionate grounds, such as a bereavement in the family. Vacation should be planned within the school holidays. Please cooperate with the school in sending the right message to the pupils that curriculum time is important.

NOTE TO PARENTS

We seek your understanding and cooperation in the following:

For the safety of the pupils in the school, we appeal to parents not to drive their vehicles into the school compound, except on rainy days. This is to ensure that there is no traffic congestion during peak hours:
  • 7.00am – 7.45am
  • 1.00pm – 2.00pm

For the safety of all road users, please abide by traffic rules when allowing your child to alight from your vehicle or waiting for your child outside the school compound. Please ensure that your child observes the school rules 

SCHOOL VISITS BY PARENTS

We would like to remind parents who need to see your child/ward or any teacher during the school hours to report to the General Office. You are also required to obtain a visitor’s pass at the Security Post for entering the school premises.

Please do not go directly to the classrooms without permission. We appreciate your strict adherence to our policy of checking in at the General Office when you are at school for any reason. We appeal to parents not to loiter within the school premises unnecessarily especially during curriculum time as you may distract your child/ward while he/she is studying.

Parents are not to come to the school at recess time to buy food for your child/ward. We would like to teach our pupils to be independent. In our effort to inculcate the value of responsibility in our pupils, we seek your assistance in reminding your child to bring the necessary books, stationery and other essentials to school e.g. spectacles, medicine, wallet/purse and water bottle. If they have forgotten to bring any necessary item, they would have to experience the inconvenience caused and make it a point to remember to bring it thereafter. Parents should not rush to deliver forgotten items to school. The only allowance we make is for items like spectacles and medicine. Parents could leave the items with the General Office and our staff will then bring them to the pupils with a warning as we must educate them to be responsible for themselves.
