[S2, S3, S4] Cohort GoogleSite: Streamlining of Communication Channels with Students

Dear S2 to S4 Students

The school has carried out reviews and we are progressively streamlining the various communication channels with students. We take into account the developments and enhancements of technology platforms over the past few years, and the user habits in the school community. 

As such, from now, all class announcements will be carried out via platforms created within the class community by the Form Teachers (e.g. Google Classroom for CCE/ Advisory). Cohort announcements will be communicated via the Students Blog

This move will mean you can access school-wide and cohort announcements at the same place. In addition, we can use the "Announcer" app to help alert us when any new post is published in the Students Blog.
