CHANGES DURING CIRCUIT BREAKER

MOE had implemented home-based learning for students at all levels during the circuit breaker period that started in April to curb the spread of Covid-19.

During this period, most students had lessons at home. However, schools remained open for students whose parents are unable to look after them at home, such as those working in essential services, as well as students from vulnerable families.

The ministry later brought forward the June holidays to May 5, in light of the the circuit breaker extension, which was originally set to end on May 4.

Physical classes resumed on June 2, with graduating primary and secondary students returning to school on Mondays to Fridays and those in other cohorts rotating weekly between home-based learning and attending school.

An additional one-week mid-term break was also instituted between July 20 and 26. 

Primary, secondary and junior college students resumed normal classes from June 29.​​​​​​​ CNA
