All schools will undergo General Repairs and Redecoration (GR&R) every 5 years. The work in the GR&R includes major repairs and paintwork to maintain the school’s façade and premises. This project was scheduled to kick off in 2020, but was temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Rest assured, we will work closely with the contractor to complete the painting on time. We will take all necessary measures to ensure your safety and security. We have also communicated with the contractor that the noise level should be reduced to a minimum wherever possible.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused. For any clarifications or concerns, please do not hesitate to approach us at General Office.
