5.2 Special Needs Support
For students with special needs, the transition period from a primary to a secondary school setting can be quite difficult.
We seek to support your child by providing guidance and training to equip them with specific skills that will allow self-independence. Your child will also be supported by an ecosystem of both teachers and peers and will undergo specialised intervention sessions.
Parents are encouraged to contact the school’s Allied Educator (Learning and Behavioural Support), Ms Beckie Boh by email at Boh_Hsiao_chie_beckie@schools.gov.sg to schedule a meeting within the first 2 weeks of school to discuss further how your child can be supported.

1.3 School Smart Cards (SSC)
All Secondary 1 students will be issued with a new secondary level School Smart Card. In the meantime, they can continue to use their primary level SSC for concessionary travel till end April 2021.
Student may purchase the Bus Concession Pass (BCP) using his/her primary level SSC but they would need to purchase the BCP for secondary school students.
