School Hours & Meals

Postby cookiemonkey » Tue Dec 28, 2010 10:13 am

Hi Parents,

There is some discussion on primary school hours and recess timing in the Today newspapers. You may want to take the opportunity to write in and voice your opinion if you like MOE to look into these issues.

many yrs ago, I have spoken to MOE regarding later start times but reply given was bus operators have to ferry workers. When I quoted CHIJ (at bukit timah) could, MOE said it is up to individual schs. Generally the newer neighbourhood sch start at 8am.

Interesting timing of SG school hours got to tie in with workers ferrying times - as opposed to what time is best for kids. :idea:
