2. 2018 Home-Based Learning Information

Primary 1 (P1) to Primary 5 (P5) pupils do not need to report to school on Thursday, 16 August 2018 and Friday, 17 August 2018 due to the PSLE Oral Examination. On both days, the school will be conducting Home-Based Learning (HBL) for the P1 - P5 pupils. Pupils can complete the learning activities anytime over these two days.

The objectives of HBL are to provide opportunities for pupils to cultivate independent learning strategies and to ensure that pupils can still be engaged in learning during a school closure due to emergencies.

During this period, your child will be doing online learning assignments from home via the school’s learning management system at Marshall Cavendish  Education, www.mconline.sg. The use of Google Chrome on personal computers to access the website is recommended. Planned lessons will be assigned by teachers to your child.

A list of learning activities for HBL and additional information on accessing the website are attached in the following pages (Annex 1). For technical assistance, please contact Marshall Cavendish at 6777 5198 from 7.00 am to 7.00 pm on Monday to Friday, and 7.00 am to 2.00 pm on Saturday. In addition, on 16 August and 17 August, you may wish to contact the school’s technical support helpline at 6922 9126 from 9.00 am to 12.00 noon.

As teachers are involved in the PSLE Oral Examinations on the above dates, pupils can seek clarification on the planned lessons during the next school day on Monday, 20 August 2018.

We seek parents’ support on the above. Please make alternative arrangements for your child to access HBL if your child does not have a computer with Internet connection at home. Kindly contact your child’s C4RE teacher if you require any clarification on HBL.
