Latest announcement from Ministry of Education (MOE) 

Joint MOE-MSF Statement on Additional Precautionary Measures

In light of the recent spike in imported cases in Singapore, MOE and MSF will implement the following two additional precautionary measures for preschool and primary school students, to protect our younger students:

1. Students staying in the same household as a person who has returned to Singapore from any country from Wednesday, 25 March 2020, 2359hr, will be placed on 14-day Leave of Absence (LOA).

2. Students staying in the same household as a person who had returned to Singapore from the UK, US or ASEAN countries on or after 14 March 2020, will be placed on LOA. The student's LOA will start from the day the person in the household returned to Singapore.

These measures are in addition to the earlier announced 14-day LOA issued to students and staff of schools, preschools and student care centres if they returned from overseas on or after 14 March. Employers are encouraged to provide flexible work arrangements for their employees to accommodate such exceptional circumstances.

MOE and MSF will continue to monitor the situation closely, and work with schools, preschools, student care centres, parents and the community to ensure that our schools, preschools and student care centres remain safe. We also urge all other students and staff who are staying with persons on LOA or Stay-Home Notice to monitor their health, see a doctor if they are sick and return to school only when fully recovered.

Updates from CPS

1. LOA Cases
The government has adopted tighter measures, accompanied by
stepped-up enforcement, as the number of infected cases went up.
As announced in the news, in the light of the recent increase in imported cases in Singapore and to protect our pupils, we will be implementing the following additional precautionary measures:

 Pupils staying in the same household as a person who had returned to Singapore from the UK, US or ASEAN countries on or after 14 March 2020, will be placed on 14-day LOA.
 Pupils staying in the same household as a person who has returned to Singapore from any country on or after 26 Mar 2020, will be placed on 14-day LOA. This means such pupils must no longer come to school and Student Care Centre from Thursday, 26 March.
These measures are in addition to the earlier announced 14-day LOA issued to pupils if they returned from overseas on or after 14 March.
The day of arrival of the household member in Singapore will count as Day 0 of the LOA, and will last for the next 14 days.

2. Additional School Measures
Apart from the measures we adopted in Term 1, we have also implemented the following additional measures this term:
 Temperature taking at the gate;
 Pupils are seated in examination style to increase social distancing;
 Pupils have fixed seating in the canteen;
 Daily wipe down in class and at the canteen; and
 No play time before school and during lunch till further notice

3. New Measure:
Starting next week (Monday, 30 March), pupils will be dismissed in 2 batches to avoid
overcrowding at the school gates and enhance social distancing:

Parents of P1, P2 & P3 pupils, please take note of the new dismissal time and do
come punctually to pick up your children so that the first batch of pupils will clear
before the second batch of pupils are dismissed.

4. Mindsets
We understand that COVID-19 has caused a lot of disruptions to our routine and life. As an educator, I feel that it also creates a lot of learning opportunities and change of mindsets:

 Better personal hygiene – washing hands regularly, having wipe down routines, not
touching our faces unnecessarily
 Positive mindset – encourage each other, deal with change and challenge and be mentally strong
 Positive learning attitude – self-directed and self-reliance on our own learning and at the
same time, help and support friends and classmates
 Be discerning – sensible and form opinion / views based on facts; avoid falling for fake
news
 Act responsibly – Visit a doctor and stay home when one is unwell; stay away from
crowded places.

We appeal to parents to help keep up the spirits of your children by actively inculcating the above mindset in them. We should not underestimate the effect of COVID-19 on our children’s well-being. We all need to take personal responsibility seriously, maintain a positive mindset and avoid anxiety and indifference.

5. Support
Many people in the healthcare segments, security segments, police, immigration officers and many others are working very hard in our fight against the coronavirus. Let us support them in their work by taking good care of ourselves and following the advisories from MOH faithfully. I believe, that would be the best support and appreciation we could give them.

Let’s pray for the situation to move from Dorscon orange to green again but in the meantime, let us also get ourselves prepared for the worst so that every member of the CPS family (staff, parents, pupils) will be prepared and better able to adapt and respond quickly
when the need arises. 

Take care and stay safe!

Parents Gateway (PG)


We are pleased to inform you that our school is now onboard Parents Gateway (PG). PG is a mobile app specially designed for parents. Developed by MOE and GovTech, the app allows parents to engage with schools, receive information and perform a range of administrative functions such as giving consent for school trips.

Please note only parents / guardians whose names are listed in the school system will be able to access information regarding their child / ward through the PG.

We would like to invite you to download the PG mobile app on your mobile phone (available on iOS and Android platforms only) and perform a simple one-time onboarding process. Please refer to the Instructional Guide.


We would like to encourage you to do so as soon as possible as the school will be issuing our monthly Touching Base, notifications and consent forms through the PG from Semester 2.

Parents who do not have a Singpass account, please apply for one as you need it to gain access to the PG. For parents who are foreigners, if you have a Foreign Identification Number (FIN), you can apply for a Singpass account and access PG.

Please note that we will only be issuing hardcopies of Touching Base and consent forms to pupils whose parents have indicated that they do not own a smartphone or unable to apply for a Singpass through the survey that was sent out with the April Touching Base. This practice will start with the June/July Touching Base issue which will be distributed at the end of May.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter. Should you have any clarification, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
