Principal's Letter January 2019

We welcome new parents to the Saints’ Family and welcome the rest of the parents back to school. We are blessed with perfect weather as we started the year with our tradition of having our Combined Beginning of Term Service and Crossing Over. Our best wishes to the Class of 2018 who have successfully “crossed over” to the Secondary School. It was a meaningful service, witnessed by many parents and old boys!

Parents Gateway

Dear Parents,

MOE has recently launched the Parents Gateway app to enable parents to interact with schools more conveniently on administrative matters (view MOE press release). Parents will also be able to use this app to stay updated on school’s programme and activities.

Subject Based-Banding

Every child is unique, and has different aptitudes, capabilities and talents. Our schools believe in providing a balanced education that caters to the different abilities of each child so that we can prepare him for life.

Subject-based Banding (Pri) was introduced as a refinement to the streaming process to help each child realise his potential, based on his strengths and needs.

School Homework Policy

The purpose of homework is to support the teaching in class and provide opportunities for pupils to apply the knowledge and skills learnt in the classroom. It will enable pupils to realise their responsibility for independent learning and strengthen their good study habits and skills.

Homework should also serve as a form of formative assessment to provide valuable feedback for learning.
