Sec 1 CCA Reporting This Week

Dear Sec 1 students,

Hope you are having a fruitful time in SST so far!

It is time for you to embark on the next stage of your SST journey and join your CCA. All CCA sessions are compulsory as your teachers, coach and seniors work hard to organise enriching experiences for you. If you ever need to miss a session for any valid reason, you are to inform the teachers-in-charge beforehand via email or parent's letter. Before each session, you can consume your lunch in your classroom unless your CCA teachers assign you a table in Level 1. The training schedule and venues can be found here:

Please report to your CCA by this Wednesday (except Scouts and Media Club, which starts on Friday) based on the information in the spreadsheet above. Students in Show Choir (Dance) and all sports CCA are to report in S&W attire and track shoes. Others can report in either school uniform or S&W attire, unless informed otherwise. On the first session, you must inform the teacher-in-charge if you have any pre-existing injuries or medical conditions. Be sure to inform your parents of the dismissal timings and take note that some CCA's have different timings for upper and lower sec.

You can find your CCA allocation in the your email (Note: I have to shorten your names in the attachment, my apologies). Thank you.

Regards,
Mr Dennis Lam

First Time Use of School Smart Cards for Concessionary Travel - Sec 1 Students (2021)

Dear Sec 1 Students,

We are pleased to inform you that the School Smart Cards (SSCs) for Secondary One students have been delivered to the school to meet the expiry deadline on the use of the primary level SSCs by the Secondary One students on 30 April 2021.   You will receive your School Smart Card through your respective Form Teachers soon.  

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 a 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.

S1 Selection of CCA (Updates)

Dear S1 Students,

Hope you have been well.

As some students had missed the CCA Tryouts last week due to MC, we had to conduct the make-up sessions this week. All S1's should receive the outcomes of the Tryouts via email by this Saturday. If you didn't receive any news from the CCA, that means you are on the waiting list, i.e. you may be accepted into the CCA if the number of applicants is not too many. 

On Friday, you will receive a hard copy CCA Option Form and a similar Google Form. You are to complete both forms with identical choices, i.e. in the same order. The deadline for submission is Monday, 8 Feb, 8am. You must get your parents to sign on the hard copy and you are to submit it to your FT's. Make full use of your 6 choices; Please do not select a CCA if you were told that you did not meet the selection requirements after you have attended the Tryout.

Please refer to the CCA Schedule and avoid clashes with your 3rd Language classes and other commitments, if possible.

Thank you.
