Dear Xishan Alumni,
Teachers’ Day is approaching! We know this is a special day many of you would like to come back to see your ex-teachers and give them your best wishes. However, due to the current COVID 19 safety measures, we will not be able to welcome you personally into the school premises this year.
Nevertheless, we still love to hear from you! We would like to extend our invitation for you to pen your wishes virtually for your former teachers and school leaders.
Please use the link or the QR code to share your wishes for your beloved teachers. Appreciate if you could include your name and year of graduation in your post. Thank you for your well wishes and understanding!

A collective national effort is critical to keep the dengue situation under control. We would like to update you on the some of the efforts that the school has taken to prevent dengue, and suggest ways of engaging your child/ward further in this. Please find the circular from the school as the attachment in this announcement.
Thank you.Home-based Learning (HBL) Plan (Term 3: Week 1 - Week 4) for P1-P3

All instructions and support for your child/ward to access a range of both online and offline HBL resources are included in the letter. They are also required to complete a survey ‘Back to School!

With the end of the Circuit Breaker on 1 Jun 2020, we enter the phase of safe opening. 2 Jun 2020 marks the beginning of a brand new school term. This new term with new arrangements and routines will be a new normal for all of us. We hope that this issue of Parent Kit will help you to understand Back to School arrangements better and how you can guide your children to adjust back to school. We also ask for your support to keep our school and children safe, as you have done before the start of Full HBL. Pages 7 to 10 of the Parent Kit provides information on how you can do so. In Xishan Primary School, we are working behind the scenes to prepare our school to ensure the safety our students so that learning can continue when school re-opens. We look forward to welcoming our students back in school!
