II. 
Attendance

  • All students must attend school regularly so that they can benefit fully from the school’s programmes and activities.  Parents are to note the start and end dates of each term in the academic year and refrain from taking children out of school for vacation during term time as it will disrupt their learning.
  • A student’s attendance and punctuality are recorded and monitored closely by the school.
    • If a student is unwell, he/she must see a doctor and obtain a medical certificate to validate his/her absence from school.  The school will accept only Medical Certificates from general practitioners, the polyclinic and other medical institutions (doctors registered with the Singapore Medical Council) for cases where the student is absent for health/medical reasons. 
  • All documents/letters to validate a student’s absence from school must be submitted to the Form Teacher upon the student’s return to school. 
  • Failure to notify or validate absence upon return to school will be treated as truancy and appropriate consequences will be meted out.  
  • A student should be with his/her class at the Parade Square/School Hall by 7.30 am for the morning assembly. Students arriving after 7.30am will be considered late. 
  • Consequences for late coming are: 
    • Late coming for the 3rd time: 1st letter of reminder will be sent to parent. 
    • Late coming for the 6th time: 2nd letter of reminder will be sent to parent.  Appropriate consequences will be meted out to students who are repeatedly late.
