Classroom Climate Survey

Dear students,

The Classroom Climate Survey (CCS) is conducted each year to allow you the opportunity to share with your subject teachers your learning experiences in their classes. Your feedback will help your teachers and the school in making the learning environment even more conducive.

This year, the CCS will be conducted on 25 Mar (Wed) and 26 Mar (Thu). You will be given time after flag raising to complete the survey.

In the morning of the two days, you will receive an information email indicating the subjects which you need to provide your feedback on. The maximum number of surveys to be completed each day is two.

Your feedback is important to us and we want to hear from you. We hope you will provide honest and candid responses. Although your details are required, this is solely for tracking the completion of surveys. Your details will not be included when the survey results are generated for analysis.

Should you have any query, please do not hesitate to email Mr Koh Siak Peng (HOD/IP) at koh_siak_peng@sst.edu.sg.

Enhanced Precautionary Measures for School Reopening after March Holidays

Dear Students,
School will re-open for Term 2 on 23 March (Monday) as planned.  
MOH has announced on 18 March that a 14-day Stay Home Notice (SHN) will be issued to returning Singapore Residents, and visitors from all countries, with effect from 20 March 2359 hrs.
To further protect our Schools, MOE will implement additional precautionary measures by issuing a 14-day Leave of Absence (LOA) to students and staff of schools, who have returned from overseas on or after 14 March (Saturday), which is the start of the March school holidays. Day zero of the 14 days will commence from the date of their return to Singapore.
This means that affected students and staff must stay away from school for the duration of their SHN or LOA. This will take effect from 20 March. This would better ensure our school remain a safe environment for our students and staff.
Students on LOA, as well as those who have to stay away from school due to quarantine orders or SHN, will all be supported via home-based learning.  You may contact the SST General Office at Tel: 65717200 if you need clarifications.   Details of the latest MOE press release can be found HERE.   
Thank you.

To ensure schools continue to be a healthy and safe environment for all, we would require travel declarations from all students for the March holidays. We have informed your parents to declare your travel plans for the March holidays, including trips to Johor Bahru and any city of transit. They are are required to make the travel declaration, including both the country and city of travel, via Parents Gateway (Go to [SERVICE > DECLARE TRAVELS]). Only one parent is required to declare. A declaration is also required if you are not travelling. Please remind your parents to do so by 11 March 2020, Wed. If there is a change of travel plans after declaration, please inform the school directly. Please refer to the advisory for details on the Stay-Home Notice (Click Here). Thank you for your support to keep our school safe.
