School Safety Guidelines
To ensure the safety and security of all our students and staff, all visitors to the school would be required to present their identity card in exchange for a visitor’s pass at the security post before proceeding to the General Office.
Please note that the area just outside the main entrance of the school is a non-stopping/ non-waiting area. In view of the safety of our students and in compliance to LTA traffic ruling, vehicles are prohibited to make U-turns in front of the school gate. Parents may drive into the school to drop off their children before 7.30am. After 7.30 am, parents may have their children alight either before the yellow box outside the main gate or near the canteen gate.
Teachers are stationed at the pedestrian crossing just outside the school to help ensure the safety of our students. We educate our students to observe road safety regulations at all times and seek the support and co-operation of parents in the use of the pedestrian crossing when walking with their children to and from school.
