Anglo-Chinese School (Junior)

There's nothing quite like being able to discuss issues and network with other parents with children in the same school as yours. Individual Schools' Official Parent Support Groups are welcome to come in and help out the incoming groups of parents.

Good evening all,

So tomorrow we are told there was a temperature taking exercise but perhaps my DS did not pay attention in class on what is really going to happen tomorrow.
Can someone enlighten me on what really happens during this exercise and does the kid need to bring their own thermometer to school?

Thank you very much.

Regards....

P1s will be given new thermometers, don’t worry.

The boys will be shown and taught how to put the thermometer under their tongue & hols it there until it beeps. Then write down the temperature for the teacher to see. That’s pretty much it.

Subsequent years, just bring the same thermometer on the relevant day. Actually most boys just leave it in the front pocket of their school bag the entire year.

Us parents just check it every one or two years to make sure the battery still works. If not working anymore, either replace the battery (a bit troublesome), or simply buy a new thermometer from Guardian/Watson’s/Popular. Every year in Dec before school reopens always got back-to-school discount lol. Few dollars nia, cheaper than a happy meal.

No worries. Hope u enjoyed the Maths workshop for P1 & P2 parents. The school has been conducting it for many years, the speaker is very humorous :)
