Dear Parents,

Singapore is currently experiencing a historically high number of dengue cases. The National Environment Agency (NEA) is strongly encouraging all residents staying in dengue cluster areas to:

·       Spray insecticides in dark corners at home (e.g. behind curtains and under beds);

·       Apply insect repellent regularly; and

·       Wear long-sleeve tops and long pants.

You are strongly advised to consider applying insect repellent on your children before they leave home for school. Students are also encouraged to bring the insect repellent to school for re-application, before they leave school for home. 

Do remind your family members to apply insect repellent too. Here is a guideline on the use of insect repellent spray:

[Parent Kit] My Independent Learner!

Dear parents, 

Many of you would have observed your children becoming more independent through their HBL experience despite the initial challenges.

This has come about because of your efforts and commitment to provide a conducive home environment and establishing routines to allow them to take on greater responsibility.

As our children return to school, I encourage you not to let go of the good practices put in place. Instead, let’s ride on this momentum to support our children in being curious and developing a love for learning.

In this issue of Parent Kit, we offer you tips on how you can give your child space to learn and grow in confidence.

To encourage and motivate more parents to support their children to be independent, we would like to invite you to join the #MyIndependentLearner movement, to share and celebrate your efforts and our children’s growth! Refer to Pg 9 and 10 to see how you can be a part of this.
