Registration for Paynow 2020-11-25

Dear Parents,

With the increasing digitalisation of government services, MOE would like to encourage all parents to register their children’s bank account with PayNow using the children’s BC/NRIC number.  The activation of PayNow will facilitate the prompt disbursement of monies for the child, and avoid delays through the filling in and processing of forms or from physical visits to banks for the deposit of cheques.  For a start, MOE will be using PayNow (BC/NRIC) as a means to disburse Edusave award monies starting from the upcoming Edusave award exercise in Dec 2020.

To register for PayNow for your children with their BC/NRIC number, you can refer to the attached guide on PayNow or visit the website of the Association of Banks in Singapore (link provided) for more information. Please approach your bank if you need further assistance to register for PayNow for your children. Alternatively, if you are using your children’s bank accounts with POSB/DBS or OCBC, you can fill in the online form (link provided) for MOE to help you to set up PayNow arrangements for these accounts.

Thank you.

Arrangements for the Release of 2020 GCE O/N(A)/N(T)-Level Results

Dear parents, 

MOE and SEAB have recently announced arrangements for the release of results for the 2020 national examinations to safeguard the well-being of students and staff (link below).

Safe Management Measures -

The key arrangements are:

(a) Students are expected to comply with Safe Management Measures in schools.

(b) Collection of results will be done in smaller groups in classrooms.

Please note that only students will be allowed to enter the school to collect their results.

Students who are unwell, on Quarantine Order, Stay-Home Notice or Leave of Absence on the results release day should not return to school to collect their results, and should view their results online instead. In this case, students who are unable to collect their results in school may appoint someone to collect the physical copy of the results, and the Joint Admissions Exercise Form, Polytechnic Foundation Programme form or Joint Intake Exercise form on their behalf within 3 working days (inclusive of the day of results release). If they are unable to do so, they can contact the school for assistance.

Online access to results -

In addition, all students will be able to view their results for the 2020 national examinations online, via SEAB’s results release system on the day of the respective national examination’s results release.

Students who are eligible for SingPass should login to the results release system via their SingPass. Students not eligible for SingPass will receive a system-generated password from SEAB closer to the results release day. More information on how to access the system will be made available on SEAB’s website in November 2020.

MOE and SEAB will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and provide updates if there are further changes to the arrangements for the release of results for this year’s national examinations.

Thank you and stay safe!

Travel Declaration For Year-End Holidays 2020-10-12

Dear Parents/Guardians,

MOH has advised Singapore residents to defer all travel overseas, with the exception of travel to an evolving list of countries, where COVID-19 is under control and the risk of importation is low.

To ensure schools continue to be a healthy and safe environment for all, we require parents/guardians to make a travel declaration only if your child/ward intends to travel for the year-end holidays. NIL returns are not required.

Please declare your child/ward’s travel plans for the year-end holidays by 30 October 2020 (Friday). We encourage you to do so via the Parents Gateway app (refer to https://pg.moe.edu.sg).

In planning your travel, please refer to the attached advisory (Annex A) on travelling.

It is important to note that if there is a change of travel plans after declaration, please resubmit your amended travel declaration form and inform your child’s /ward’s form teacher directly, not through Parents’ Gateway. 

If you have any further queries, please contact Mdm Koh Chwee Ngoh at 6454 3722 or email to koh_chwee_ngoh@schools.gov.sg.

Thank you for your partnership and support to keep our school safe.

Early Dismissal in September 2020-09-15

In addition to early dismissal, there will also not be a second recess for all levels on the days of the examinations. Curriculum timing may also be revised.
