Temperature Measurement Exercise 30 June 2016

Dear students,

SST will be conducting a temperature measurement exercise on 30th June 2016, Thursday. This is to ensure the school’s preparedness to resume the temperature-measurement regime and to familiarise our students with the process. The exercise also serves to educate our students on the need to take personal responsibility for their own health and social responsibility for the health of others.

The Oral Digital Thermometer (ODT), which costs $5.00 each, can be purchased from the School bookshop. There will also be a Thermometer station (on 30 June) located at the Blk C, opposite of the classroom level 4-15 and level 5-15 if necessary.

All students are reminded to keep their ODTs in good working condition.

Thank you.
Warmest regards,

    *Important* Timetable for Term 3 (2016)

    Dear students, 

    The timetable for Term 3 can now be accessed HERE.


    Since the start of 2016, SST has reviewed and made some improvements to the timetable structure to better support its curriculum delivery and student well-being. This includes introducing short breaks for students and making minor adjustments to the curriculum time for some subjects. We also gathered feedback from students on the changes made in Semester 1.

    Moving forward, we have refined the timetable structure further in Semester 2.
    For example, the duration of each period has been reduced from 50 min to 20 min. This would give greater flexibility in the subject duration, hence the design of your learning experience. More information will be communicated to you when school reopens on Monday.

    Please take note that there is no change to the reporting time to school
    Do refer to the timetable to prepare for Monday's lessons.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Mozzie Watch keeper @ NW

    http://www.mozziewatchkeeper.com/


    2016 started with an unusually high number of dengue cases and we have also seen the first case of Zika in Singapore, which was in the North West District. We are fast entering the peak dengue season from June to October, where the hotter weather may speed up the process for Aedes mosquito eggs to become adults.

    SST is on board The Mozzie Watch keeper @ NW programme which is jointly organised with NEA and Holland-Bukit Panjang Town Council and supported by Bulding & Estate Management Alumni (BEMA). It hopes to rally students and residents to learn, prevent, spot and report cases of potential mosquitoes breeding grounds, through an interactive mobile app. The mobile app contains an e-learning quiz to create awareness and provide knowledge for effective Dengue/Zika prevention. 

    To add a social cause to the programme, BEMA will donate $2 to North West Student Support Fund for every participant who completes the quiz. 

    All SST Students are encouraged to download the mobile app MozzieWatchKeeper@NorthWest. 
    The mobile app domain name is www.mozziewatchkeeper.com.

    Below is the link to the programme video:

    Do tap on Mozzie Watch Keeper
    - Complete the Registration (do indicate school as SST)
    - Complete the short lessons and quizzes on the following topics:
    •     What is Dengue?
    •     Dengue Dangers
    •     How to fight?
    •     Do your part
    And you would have helped to raise $2.

    Do also make use of the app to spot and report any potential mosquito breeding ground during this period.

    Thank you and have a dengue-free holiday!

    Best regards,

    SST Environment Committee
