PSLE leave plan for OCBC staff with kids... up to 15 days' leave and carry it forward to the next year so that they can stay home to help their child study for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE).

PSLE leave may "feed into fears" of parents: Josephine Teo


There's always 2 sides to a coin... Which is the lesser evil?

Maybe some organization decide that it's better to have these parents plan and apply for leave than to go on MC during that time!! :evil:

If you think deeper into this, not much diff right ? It is still utilising one's own leave. Not sure what is causing the commotion ? :scratchhead:

Yalor. if I read correctly, they are not getting more days of leave. rather, they can bring forward some of the previous yr's leave so that they can use it during the PSLE year.

Yes, they should seriously consider this.... My company voluntarily extend it till 12 and I feel that it makes absolute sense... You have different set of requirements when kids are in primary school. eg. meet the teachers, preparation for exams, etc.... Govt should seriously consider that why only up to 6????

Actually I think Sec Sch kids also need that - need to see teachers, take care of them when they are sick, have parent-child bonding.......teens need lots of parental attention too!

My employer offers extended childcare leave too. For those with kids below age 7, it's the standard 6 days we all know about. For kids from 7 to 12, my employer is offering 5 days per kid, for up to 3 kids. In this extended 5 days childcare leave, 2 of which are to be supported by mc or medical appt letter. I think it is nice of the employer. Give up to 3 kids, shows it's support for govt's drive to get Singaporeans to have more kids.

Per kid??? No, we don't have it per kid. The threshold is based on the youngest child's age.

But my company does offer dependent sick leave (which applies to my parents too). Like our usual medical leave so that is a good gesture as well.

Hope to see my companies exercising such gesture.
