Recently, the Ministry of Education (MOE) announced that the well-known June holidays would be pulled forward to 5 May 2020. Due to the extension of the Circuit Breaker period till 1 June 2020 which means a prolonged period of full Home-Based Learning (HBL) for educators, students, and parents to adapt to, the main motive of the change was to provide everyone with a much-needed early break from the understandably-exhausting adjustments that have to be made.
It all started with the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Singapore on the 23rd of January 2020. Ever since then, the number of confirmed cases, albeit imported ones, have steadily climbed up.
The COVID-19 has greatly affected not just Singapore, but the whole world. It has caused lockdowns in several countries, crashed the stock market, and has created a worldwide economic downturn. In Singapore, even though at this point in time we have not shown any sign of implementing any lockdown, the virus situation has taken a toll on the lives of many Singaporeans.
The Direct School Admission (DSA) is a yearly exercise which provides students with the chance for admission into a secondary school or Junior College (JC) based on the achievements and talents they possess, beyond their performance at the National Examinations in Singapore.
The third term of school will be resuming on 2 June 2020. This will occur in two phases, with the first phase being specially meant for students from graduating cohorts as well as students who need additional support.
