As many of you may have read yesterday, the Covid-19 multi-ministry taskforce introduced additional precautionary measures to be implemented from this Thursday, 2359hrs onwards. Of them, one was that center-based tuition and enrichment classes will be suspended. Another restricted certain gatherings to a limit of 10 people.
At this moment, we are unsure whether we will be required to suspend all our lessons as well. 95% of our lessons are held one-to-one. During our peak hour on Saturday, we are able to keep below the limit of 10 people within our premise. We have proper hygiene practices in place, disinfecting common surfaces at least twice a day, temperature-taking, compulsory handwashing, etc.
The teachers had a meeting last night to discuss contingency plans and we are in close contact with industry partners and sharing information. We have reached out to the Ministry of Health, and once we receive a confirmed directive, we will update you right away.
Some of you have expressed that it is ok for your child to continue to come to our school for lessons. Vinnie and I are extremely heartened to have your continued support during this tough period. We foresee tougher times ahead, but because of you, we are able to keep our spirits up and continue to have faith in the work we do.
