Holidays and Holiday Programme

Every year the school follows the Singapore School Year Calendar and designated holidays. At the end of each term we provide a school Holiday Programme. Usually this is for one week in March and September and approximately four weeks in June and November / December. There is no additional charge should you wish to send your child for the holiday programme.

During December the school usually undergoes heavy renovation for approximately 2 weeks. This can vary slightly but most usually runs from mid December through to the beginning of the New Year. The office remains open during this time; except for public holidays.
