First Time Use of School Smart Cards for Concessionary Travel - Sec 1 Students (2020)

Dear Sec 1 Students,

We are pleased to inform you that the School Smart Cards (SSCs) for Secondary One students will be delivered to the school around mid-Feb 2020 to meet the expiry deadline on the use of the primary level SSCs by the Secondary One students on 30 April 2020.   You will receive your School Smart Card through your respective Form Teachers.  

Please note that you are required to activate your card at the TransitLink Ticket Offices / TransitLink Concession Card Replacement Offices / Passenger Service Centres (PSCs) at the MRT / Bus Interchanges by topping-up the value for the card before the SSCs can be used for concessionary travel. In support of national initiative to steer commuters towards adopting e-payments in transit ticketing, top up at Passenger Services Centre has ceased. However, PSCs will continue to assist in the activation of concession card for MOE students. To avoid being turned away, students are advised to inform the PSC staff that they would like to activate their concession card.  The minimum top-up value is $5.

Please call TransitLink at 1800 2255663 if you require further clarification.  Thank you.

A BIG THANK YOU from #SSTore

Dear SST Family

We would like to THANK YOU for your generous support towards our recent pop-up #SSTore!

During Badge Ceremony on 10 January, a group of us with some student volunteers pushed our little pop-up #SSTore around school and advocated for the Fight against Diabetes: Don't Sugar-coat it. Along with our advocacy message, we sold sugar-free soya milk and handmade keychains. With your support, we were sold out and collected over $900.00. 100% of the sales proceeds will go to the running of some of our student-initiated projects organised by our very own ACE leaders.

Our next pop-up #SSTore will take place in soon! Do keep a lookout for where we ‘pop-up’! More details will be sent out at a later date.

If you are interested in helping out for the next pop-up #SSTore, scan the QR code below to sign up as a volunteer:
Once again, thank you for your generous contributions during Badge Ceremony!

Regards
Lam Yan Yu, S4-04
On behalf of ACE #SSTore Team
