SOP for taking level tests - revisit

Dear all,

Kindly refer back to the earlier communication (since term 1) for the standard procedures/processes (i.e. SOPs) for Level Tests, found on Std Googlesite.

Just want to highlight one particular process:

Please take note that you should not turn up for school to take the test if you're on MC for that day.

The reasons are simple and commonsensical:
1) you're not in a good state to be in school and will need rest (which is why an MC has been issued)
2) we need to exercise social responsibility (spare a thought for your classmates, play your part to keep infection at bay!)
3) you may be allowed to retake the test within 5 working days from the day of your MC (so don't have to worry)

If you need further clarifications or have any other queries on test SOPs, please direct them to me. Thanks!

Cheers,
Mr Seth Tan

Common Test SOP (gentle reminder)

Dear beloved babes of S1-02,

Kindly prepare for the common tests next week (Term 2 Week 7) and start intensive work on your revisions! Hope you can stand well under the 'heat' of exams. :)

Here are some reminders on things to take note:

1) Please bring along Student EZLink card for verification during the exam (as part of exam protocol) 

2) If you are going to be absent due to MC on the particular day of exam, kindly call the General Office (65717200) to inform.

3) Absent cases, without an MC to cover your absence, will result in a 0 mark for your paper. Students will not be allowed to re-sit for the paper that they had missed. However, students may be asked to try out the paper as a practice paper (not graded) after the Common Test period.

4) Parent's letter to cover leave of absence will not be accepted. (i.e. a 0 mark will still be awarded).

5) Be at the test venue (i.e. S1-02 classroom) at least 15 minutes before the paper starts, and do your toileting prior to the paper also.

6) Cheating or any attempts to cheat is a big 'No no'. Offenders will be put to task and get a 0 mark for the paper and parents will be called in. This is one boundary that you must never cross as it is your integrity at stake.

7) Sufficiently hydrate yourself and have enough sleep on the night before your paper. It will help to ensure your consistent performance during the paper itself.


That's all folks, all the best for your revisions and your common tests next week! Work hard and you'll achieve good results!

Cheers! Mr Seth Tan

WANTED for CCA Option Form, Assessment Plan Reply Slip and Dental Form

Dear class,

It has been brought to my attention that some of you have not been conscientious in submitting the reply slips/ consent forms/ etc. As a result of forgetfulness, you may have allowed these 'little' but important things to create unwanted and undue stress on both yourself and the people who are collecting it from you. I understand that some of you may have really "forgotten" all about submitting these forms, but even so, that does not excuse you from being responsible in your duty. Buddies, please encourage and remind each other to do what is necessary.

Remember, consistent forgetfulness is a disease and it usually happens to only old, senile people. I believe that if this inaction to submit reply slips/ acknowledgement slips/ consent forms continues to become a trend for some of you, it will cultivate a sloppy attitude in you. My hope for all of you is to be faithful with the little things, as I firmly believe that by so doing, you'll find yourself ready and prepared for big things to come.

So, please... for those of you with index nos. indicated below, kindly submit your items to the class secretary (Christopher) or drop it inside the admin box found on the teacher's desk. Do remember to write your index no. on the top right hand corner of the forms that you submit.

CCA Option Forms:
Index no. 14 and 18 (index 18 submitted)

Assessment Plan Reply Slip
Index no. 2, 7, 13, 18, 20 (index 2 and 20 submitted)

Dental Forms:
Index no. 17 and 20 (index 17 submitted)


PS: For our info, if the situation doesn't improve, we may have to decide as a class and implement certain consequences on those who are perpetually forgetful.

Cheers,
Mr Seth Tan
