Message from the Campus Principal, Term 1, Week 7
Dear SSIS parents and guardians,
Welcome back from the week long October break! I hope all of you managed to have some quality time with your family.
“Be the first to say Hello today!”
This is but one of the few poster messages that can be found around the school with the official launch of our Greetings Communicate Care campaign. We hope that students and staff take the initiative to greet and acknowledge each other on a daily basis. Such exchanges are not only important communication skills for all but also a demonstration of care, basic courtesy and good etiquette.
Parents are always welcome to access our school website and e-learning platform – iLearn to get the latest course information and weekly updates for each subject. Resources and homework information can be readily found on the individual subject pages.

Student of the Week:
HOO Xin Yi, 8 Ruby
Despite being a new student to the school last academic year, Xin Yi proved herself to be an A* achiever. She overcame the odds and managed to excel in her results in Mathematics.
This year, she has continued to show her capabilities in achieving her first A* of the year in the first mathematics project.
The annual school fire drill exercise happens early in trimester 1 every year. The students were asked whether they knew their fire escape route, how fast can their class evacuate from Block B level 2 during the fire drill exercise, and whether the route that they have to follow is the most efficient way out of the building or not. Following the Escape Route on the map, they had to estimate the evacuation distance from your classroom to the nearest staircase.
Xin Yi did an outstanding job on her project. She provided very mature, accurate, thoughtful and well-reasoned reflections about her results.
She never fails to meet deadlines for classwork and homework and continues to attain a good level of performance and achievement in the contents taught so far.”
Well done Xin Yi. You are the Secondary student of the week from Mathematics.
