21 July 2021
In line with the Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) national stance, the Ministry of Education has strongly encouraged all private tuition & enrichment classes to conduct their lessons online from 22 July 2021 to 18 August 2021. This is to minimise the risk of COVID-19 infection.
Given this advisory and the heightened national COVID-19 safe management measures, we will be reverting to online lessons for a tentative period of 4 weeks (22 July – 18 August). This will apply to all our Pre-School (except Phonics & Reading), Primary & Secondary School students who are having physical classes at our centres.
Kindly take note of the following:
All online classes will be conducted via Zoom, at the same timing as your child’s current physical class(es). Links to your online class(es) will be sent to you via email before the class. Do download or update to the latest version of Zoom (https://zoom.us/download) for ease of access to our online class(es).
Please make arrangements to collect the worksheets for the coming lessons from the respective MS Centres where your child is attending class(es). For better crowd control, do make an appointment with us @ https://www.mindstretcher.com/ms-appointment.
Do continue to submit your child’s worksheets to his/her teacher for marking, either via the Mind Stretcher Communications App or email. For more information on how to scan and submit your homework, check out https://www.mindstretcher.online.
Your child can continue to make use of our MS e-Study Buddy platform (https://mindstretcher.shop/e-studybuddy) to watch the pre-recorded lesson videos to recap and reinforce his/her learning. These videos also serve as ‘makeup lessons’ for students who have missed any lessons.
Given the relative difficulty of conducting online lessons for Phonics & Reading, lessons will be suspended until the situation stabilises. We will keep you informed once lessons are resumed.
Thank you for your understanding and support. Please feel free to contact us for any enquiries or assistance.
We will be sharing important announcements and latest updates on your child’s class(es) regularly via the Mind Stretcher Communications app.
Thank you & stay safe! Together, we can overcome this!
