 25/11/20Dear parents,  Congratulations! Your child has arrived at yet another milestone in their life! As they move from Primary to Secondary School, you might wonder what secondary school life will be like, and how they will adjust to the different environment and routines. They might also feel anxious as the start of their secondary school journey draws near. Their anxiety can be turned into excitement if they feel prepared for the change and are able to adapt well to secondary school life – and parents can play a part to help them be prepared too! This issue of Parent Kit provides tips on what you can do to help your child transit smoothly from Primary School to Secondary 1. We hope you will use the school holidays to try out these tips.

Dear Parents

With the increasing digitalisation of government services, MOE would like to encourage all parents to register their children’s bank account with PayNow using the children’s BC/NRIC number.  The activation of PayNow will facilitate the prompt disbursement of monies for the child, and avoid delays through the filling in and processing of forms or from physical visits to banks for the deposit of cheques.  For a start, MOE will be using PayNow (BC/NRIC) as a means to disburse Edusave award monies starting from the upcoming Edusave award exercise in Dec 2020.

To register for PayNow for your children with their BC/NRIC number, you can refer to the attached guide on PayNow or visit the website of the Association of Banks in Singapore (link provided) for more information. Please approach your bank if you need further assistance to register for PayNow for your children. Alternatively, if you are using your children’s bank accounts with POSB/DBS or OCBC, you can fill in the online form (link provided) for MOE to help you to set up PayNow arrangements for these accounts.

Thank you.

[For Graduating Cohorts] Safeguarding the well-being of candidates for National Examinations

Dear parents and students,

To safeguard the well-being of candidates and teachers and reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, safe management measures will be implemented in schools during the national examinations. 
The following groups of candidates will not be allowed to sit for the national examinations due to potential public health risks:

•       Confirmed case of Covid-19 Infection;
•       On Quarantine Order
•       On Stay Home Notice;
•       On Leave of Absence (Confirmed); and
•       Display flu-like symptoms (such as fever or coughing) on the day of examinations.

Specific groups of candidates will be allowed to sit for the national examinations if they have been tested negative for COVID-19.  Enhanced safe management measures will be implemented for this group. 
Please refer to the attached instructions or visit SEAB’s website for more information.

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.
