Step Up of Precautionary Measures for 2019-nCoV2020-02-04
Singapore has announced additional precautionary measures that will be put in place as a protection from the 2019-nCoV virus. The safety and wellbeing of our students is our topmost priority and PresHigh is ready to implement these additional measures starting tomorrow 5 Feb 2020.
As an example of the social-distancing measures that we will be implementing, we will be holding our morning assembly in the classrooms instead of at the Parade Square. We will also be making changes to our recess times so that students will eat at staggered time slots. We will be conducting a thorough briefing for our students tomorrow and will also be providing more details of programmes that will be cancelled or suspended.
Everyone should continue to practise good social responsibility by seeing a doctor and staying at home if one is feeling unwell.
Let us work together and be resilient. We look forward to seeing your children in school tomorrow!
Mr Victor Owyong

Under the National Registration Regulations, all Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents are required to register for their NRIC in the year the child attains the age of 15 years. Your child/ward is required to register for his NRIC in 2020. To provide greater convenience to our students, the registration exercise will be conducted in Presbyterian High School in the afternoon on 18 Feb 2020 (Tuesday).
Two weeks before the ICA mobile team visits our school, ICA will send a NOTIFICATION FOR REGISTRATION OF NRIC to all parents/guardians whose children are due for registration.

Keeping our Students Safe from the 2019-nCoV
Thank you for your support in ensuring that your child/ward brings an ODT to school. We have been able to conduct the daily temperature taking exercise smoothly with the strong cooperation of the students. We have also been teaching your child/ward about the novel coronavirus and the good personal hygiene practices to protect himself/herself against transmission. Let us work together to role model and reinforce these good practices at home. You may wish to watch the attached GIF on how to beat the bug, and please feel free to share it.
We understand that parents may have some questions about the 2019-nCoV situation and hence would like to share the link to MOE’s FAQ that you will find helpful.
Enhanced school measures for Novel Coronavirus
As school re-opens on 29 Jan 2020, MOE will be enhancing precautionary measures in view of the novel coronavirus situation. These include daily temperature taking and Leave of Absence for students and staff with a travel history to China. More details are in the attachment below.
Let us all play our part in keeping good personal hygiene and taking social responsibility. There may be some inconveniences as preventive steps are taken, but together we can keep our children safe while minimising disruption to learning.
