As you can see from the pictures and write-ups above we have certainly been busy this week at the High School. We ended the week with the Parent/Teacher Association get together at Paterson campus and look forward to the PTA AGM on 14th September.
IB Learner Profile
Last month we celebrated the Learner Profile CARING: "We show empathy, compassion and respect. We have a commitment to service, and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us." (IBO, 2013). Congratulations to the following students who were nominated by teachers.

I am sure many of you are worried by the news that Zika has arrived in Singapore. The current outbreak is in an area localised within the Aljunied Crescent/ Sims Drive cluster which is approximately 22 km from Preston Road.
Whilst Zika is a very mild disease for the person catching it, it can have an impact on unborn children.
The school follows a regular policy of fogging for mosquitos every Tuesday and has regular inspections from the NEA to ensure that the Preston site is as clear of mosquitos as possible.
We would ask that anyone who may be having any of the following symptoms;
- Mild fever
- Skin rashes
- Muscle ache
- Joint pain
- Conjunctivitis (red eyes)
We shall, of course continue to monitor the situation closely.
