Curriculum Hours 2018

** Pupil will have a break from 2 pm – 2.30 pm if they have lesson/remedial after 2 pm.

School will continue to start lesson at 8 am. The Early Bird Programme will start at 7.40 am. Pupils are encouraged to be present during the Early Bird programme. We strongly encourage pupils to have breakfast before attending school.

There will be a 10-min snack break for pupils at 9.30 am. Pupils could bring snacks to eat in class. In line with healthy living, we hope parents can prepare healthy snacks for pupils. The snack should be a healthier food option and should be easy for the child to manage. During the snack break, pupils are not allowed to go to the canteen to purchase food. Pupils can purchase the snacks from the school canteen before school starts for their snack break. Parents will need to provide their child with a pack of wet wipes to clean up after the snack break.

The table below indicates healthy snack food that are acceptable and those that are not acceptable.
