Updates from San Yu Adventist School (SYAS)
Thank you for working with our teachers to help your child/ward learn as much as possible during the home-based learning (HBL) journey. It has not been easy for all of us and we can give ourselves a pat on the shoulders for putting in our best effort in meeting different challenges head on. Our last HBL day will be on 4 May 2020 and we look forward to seeing all students on 2 June 2020.
Please refer to the following updates for a better understanding of some of the major activities that will take place in Term 3:
- Revised Academic Calendar in Term 3
SYAS’ revised calendar will be released during the middle of May 2020. We regret to announce that the annual Sports Day is cancelled due to safe social distancing measure. However, we will still carry out many main activities such as the annual National Day celebration, Parent-Teacher Conference and Teachers’ Day celebration.
2. Term 3 Progress Report Card
The main objective of the HBL is to ensure that teaching and learning can continue to take place in the midst of the Circuit Breaker period. Students are assessed for learning regularly but minimal assessments of learning assignments are given. The school wants to give students time and space to explore and adapt to different modes of teaching and presentation.
When students return to school in Term 3, their learning will be assessed and the progress report card will be issued at the end of the term. The calculation of the 2020 academic year results will be as follows:
- Primary 1: Term 1 10%; Term 3 30%; Term 4 10% and Term 4 continuous assessment 50%
- Primary 2 to Secondary 3: Term 1 10%; Term 3 20% and Prelim/ Year-end Exam 70%
- Secondary 4: 100% Prelim Exam
3. Student Travel Declaration Update
Most, if not all, students have declared their travel plans via the ASKnLearn portal. If there is a change to the original declaration, students should update their travel declaration plans via the same portal and inform SYAS at [email protected]
Students should not travel out of Singapore, unless in emergency cases or on compassionate grounds. Please seek approval from SYAS at [email protected] before confirming travels plans when facing such situations.
Do take note that students holding different types of passes will probably face greater difficulty in obtaining entry approval when they wish to return. As the COVID-19 situation can be volatile, students who travel may have to be put under quarantine or stay at home orders upon their return, and miss lessons when school starts on 2 June 2020.
Let us continue to offer our thanksgiving to God for His blessings and protection.
