Students are to bring their Oral Digital Thermometer (ODT) every day. Daily temperature taking will take place in respective classrooms before proceeding with lesson / assembly / cohort briefing.

The school strongly advises students and their families to monitor their health and adopt good personal hygiene habits. Parents should seek immediate medical attention for their children if unwell, and ensure that their children recover fully before they return to school for classes. The school will work closely with students on LOA by supporting them with a home-based learning plan, which will enable them to continue with their learning. Let’s continue to keep good personal hygiene and stay healthy.
