Being Healthy for School

For pupils to fully enjoy their learning experience in school, it is important that pupils take personal responsibility for their own health and remain healthy.  The school regularly reminds pupils to do the following:

  • Eat well.  Have a balanced diet.
  • Rest sufficiently.  School-going children must have at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep every day.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Practise good hygiene habits – Wash your hands before and after every meal.  Bathe regularly and keep dry.  Cough/sneeze into a tissue before throwing it away.  Brush your teeth every day.
  • Before coming to school, pupils must check if they are feeling unwell.  Pupils can use the thermometer given to them to check if they have a temperature.
  • If pupils feel unwell or have a temperature, they are not to report to school. Instead, parents/guardians are to immediately seek medical attention for their children.  Parents/Guardians are to ensure that their children remain at home to rest for the full number of days stated in the Medicate Certificate (MC).  Alternatively, children have to be certified medically fit before returning to school.
  • If pupils feel unwell during school hours, they are to immediately notify the teachers in class.
  • Irresponsible or inconsiderate behaviour may result in others falling ill.

Responsibility for Personal Possessions

Pupils must be responsible for their personal belongings:

  1. Pupils are responsible for the safekeeping of their own belongings.  Personal belongings of value must not be left unattended.  The school shall not be held responsible for the loss or damage of pupils’ personal items.
  2. Do not bring expensive items such as MP3 players, electronic games etc to school.
  3. Pupils are discouraged from bringing mobile phones to school as the phone can be a source of distraction from their learning.  Pupils can use the public phones located in the school’s canteen or approach the school’s General Office should they need to make phone calls.
  4. Bring only sufficient pocket-money to school.
