Self-Checking Vision Screening Chart (for Sec 1, 3 and 4 Students)

HPB has provided a vision screening chart to the School (sponsored by Essilor Singapore).  As vision screening by the HPB team will only be conducted for Sec 2 students, students from Sec 1, 3 and 4 can use it to check their own visual acuity if they suspect worsening of vision.  The Vision Screening Chart and the instructions for use have been put up outside the ICT Helpdesk.  

For students supported on 100% Independent School Bursary (ISB) and who may require spectacles based on the vision screening results, a $50 voucher for spectacles frame and a voucher for free lenses will be issued.  These vouchers are redeemable at participating optical shops and a list of these optical shops will be given to the students.  Students (100% ISB only) who require spectacles will need to provide their Visual Acuity Reading in the Googleform (HERE) by 5 April 2019. 

For further clarification, please contact SST General Office at Tel: 6571 7200. Thank you.
