Parent Engagement Slides on Home-Based Learning (HBL) Day 2021-07-07

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Blended Learning (BL) is part of MOE’s efforts to further develop our students’ ability to be self-directed, passionate and lifelong learners. Home-Based Learning (HBL) Days will be scheduled about once a fortnight to complement teaching and learning in school. Each HBL Day will comprise both curriculum coverage and student-initiated learning, which is the time dedicated for students to pursue their interests. 

In PHS, HBL will be implemented across Secondary 1 – 3 from Term 3, 2021.  The HBL schedule is as follows:

Term 3 

15 July, 29 July, 12 August & 26 August

Term 4

16 September

We hope to partner you by inculcating in our students the skills to self-manage and take ownership for their own learning. The issue of Parent Kit (attached) provides general information and tips on HBL Days, a part of the BL structure, and how you can support your child on their HBL days.

The school would like to take this opportunity to share with you a set of audio slides titled Parent Engagement Slides on HBL Day. This can be found at the website link attached.

Sec 4N Preliminary Examinations 2021-06-30

Dear Parent / Guardian,

The Preliminary Examinations will be conducted from 22 Jul to 30 Jul 2021 for Sec 4N.

This is a critical academic year for your child/ward, as he/she will prepare to sit for national exam at the end of the year. The Preliminary Examinations will be an important assessment of your child’s/ward’s readiness and consistent work in his/her academic studies.

During the Preliminary Examinations period, all students are to report to school and assemble at their classrooms by 7.25 am daily unless their first paper commences after 9.00 am. Students are to report at least 10 minutes before the start of each paper at the exam venue. If your child/ward does not have any papers on a particular day during the examination period, he/she is to do his revision at home.

We also encourage parents/guardians to practice social responsibility that your child/ward with flu-like symptoms is to stay away from school and seek medical attention immediately.  Likewise, should any household member who have flu-like symptoms, your child/ward should also stay away from school.  Every cautious effort helps to minimize the transmission risk in the school and community.

Thank you for your support and partnership.

COVID-19 VACCINATION EXERCISE FOR SECONDARY 4 & 5 STUDENTS 2021-06-01

Dear Parents/Guardian

As part of the national vaccination exercise, the Ministry of Health (MOH) together with Ministry of Education will be rolling out vaccination to progressively cover over 400,000 students from schools and Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) from 1 June 2021, beginning with the graduating cohort. I believe that you would have received an SMS to book the first appointment for your child/ward.

We have attached the GCE O-Level and N-Level Oral Examination schedules for our graduating classes. This information will facilitate your booking of slots for the second dose and to avoid the dates that your child's/ward’s class has been scheduled for the examination.

 

If you have any query, please feel free to approach your child's/ward’s EL or MTL teachers for clarification.

Thank you
