School Safety & Security
School Safety & Security
The safety and security of our students and staff are of paramount importance to us. Working in partnership with our parents and stakeholders, we adopt a whole school approach in the creation of a safe and secure learning environment.
All visitors (including parents/guardians) are required to enter the School via the main gate and report to the security guard post to exchange for a visitor pass. All visitors must then report to the General Office to seek assistance. No visitors are allowed to proceed beyond the General Office without an accompanying school staff. All visitors must display their visitor pass prominently.
School Gates Opening Hours
Before the morning assembly, students may enter the school using either the main gate or one of the side gates. The main gate is opened from 6.30 am to 7.00 pm on school days, while the side gates are only opened for students before morning assembly and during school dismissal time.

Side Gate 1

Side Gate 2
(opposite block 305)
Parents who choose to drive their children to school are encouraged to drop them off at the public carparks nearby, where the students can then enter the school via the side gates.
On rainy days, parents may let their children alight at the sheltered foyer. For the safety of our students and to ensure smooth flow of traffic in school, we seek parents to get their children ready to alight with their school bags upon entering the school gate.
We urge everyone driving into the school to exhibit patience and care when driving within the school compound. Drivers must keep to the speed limit of 15 km/h and follow the directions given by our school staff or security guards.
Students may be dismissed via the main gates or one of the side gates during school dismissal at 1.30 pm. We seek parents/guardians’ cooperation to wait at the designated areas along the walkway at the main gate or at the void decks of the HDB flats near the side gates for their child/ward, so as to avoid congestion at the gates. Please use the public car park adjacent to the School and make the necessary arrangement to pick up your child/ward at side gate 2 near the School canteen. The School main gate will be closed from 1.15pm to 1.45pm to all vehicles, except for authorised vehicles such as School buses. Parents who are driving into the School to pick up their children can only do so from 1.45pm, provided all our school buses have left the school compound.
Permission to Leave School Early
No student is allowed to leave school on their own during curriculum time. Students who need to leave school before school dismissal must be fetched by their parents or a member of their family. Such persons will be required to provide their personal particulars in the presence of a General Office staff before they are allowed to leave with the students.
Safety Around The School
Students are expected to walk quietly, and not run or play, when moving around the school. They must exercise caution, care and consideration for others when using school facilities. They should also queue up when making purchases at the school canteen and bookshop, and when boarding school buses.
When the lightning alert system is activated, students must stop all outdoor activities immediately and move indoors.
Emergency exercises, such as fire drills, are held twice a year to ensure that students and staff know what to do in the event of an emergency.
Students must exercise care and caution when crossing the road. They are constantly reminded not to jaywalk but to use the pedestrian crossing and obey traffic signals. To make themselves more visible to motorists, students are also advised to raise their right hand when crossing the road.
For students who cycle to and from the School, we seek parents/guardians’ co-operation to ensure that your child/ward adhere to the safety regulations by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) on cyclists.
As part of emergency management to safeguard our students’ and staff’ health, students who travel out of Singapore during the mid-year and end-of- year school holidays are required to submit their Travel Declaration. Parents may submit their children’s travel declaration via the online form accessible at http://www.mconline.sg. The hardcopy form for parents without internet access is available upon request.
