2019 S2 to S4: Class Pages in GoogleSite

Dear Students

With effective from 2019, the 'class blogs' will be integrated into the GoogleSite as "Class Pages".
In other words, by logging into the cohort GoogleSite (with your SST email account), you would be able to access the cohort announcements as well as class announcements.

This change is based on a review on the use and developments of the various technology platforms we are currently using. We hope that this will create greater convenience for you to access information in a more organised and timely manner.

On the other hand, general information and announcements for the student community will still be made via the Students Blog. Do follow this blog for daily announcements.
