A day before school classes were suspended due to the Circuit Breaker that kicked in on 8 April, children in The Grange community received a Care Pack from the school. It was an exercise to reiterate the importance of good personal hygiene and health during the Circuit Breaker period and beyond.
Fast-forward to the lifting of Circuit Breaker, the school welcomed students back on 2 June with a Welcome Pack containing an apple, bottle of hand sanitiser and a hand-written message.
We also prepared a staff pack containing anti-bacterial wipes and sanitisers. This gesture of goodwill is part of the school’s continued efforts to ensure its community practise good personal hygiene and stay healthy, in line with our enhanced measures to make the learning environment comfortable safe for everyone.
Thanks to our strict measures implemented even pre-Circuit Breaker, The Grange is possibly one of the few international schools in Singapore that were given the green-light by authorities to have 100% of its student body return to school. This is a proud effort of the whole learning community – from students, teachers and staff over the past months, working together ensure the safety of every individual.
While teachers put their best efforts in creating an immersive virtual classroom experience for students during Home-Based Learning, nothing beats being able to come back to school to be with their teachers and friends once more.
The COVID-19 Pandemic is here to stay for the long run. The Grange continues to urge everyone to observe good personal hygiene, practice safe distancing and stay healthy.
