Full Home-Based Learning (FHBL) | Week 9


Dear Year 4s,


FHBL lessons start tomorrow. Please follow your odd week time-table accordingly and check your HBL lesson plans for all relevant details. You can find the HBL Lesson Plans for the various classes, including art, here.


I will take this opportunity to remind all of you on one important point that was mentioned during the briefing. This is not the year to treat your HBL flippantly. Thankfully, most of you do not. But, there are some of you that tend to cave in to the temptation to let your focus stray. So, if you find yourself in that unfortunate position, just do yourself the favor of reminding yourself that this is your O Level year. The "take-it-easy" time has long passed. 


Please be reminded that you are supposed to log-in for contact time before 0730hrs. Also, please be reminded that you must check your school email daily and regularly.

Lastly but also most importantly, it goes without saying but please, please, please take care of yourselves. Amidst all the stress and all the bad days you seem to have, please know that this too shall pass and you will, fingers crossed, continually grow to become better versions of yourself.
