Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Very soon, we will welcome your child back to school for Term 3.

We thank you for your partnership with us during the full Home-Based Learning (HBL). HBL, on such a full and sustained scale, has been an extraordinary learning experience for the teaching fraternity. Teachers learn new ICT tools, acquire and develop digital resources to cater for students’ learning in a home environment. We were similarly amazed at the agility of our students to adapt to the new way of learning and participate actively during ‘live’ sessions by asking questions and being attentive. Of course there is still room for improvement. Teachers will continue to share with one another on good practices and resources that we could use more effectively. Students could also learn to be more effective in self-monitoring and self-check. But we are progressing and would be better poised from Term 3, as we juggle with carrying out lessons in school with home-based lessons; and alternating between these two modes weekly.

Despite the pandemic and the many safe management measures we have put in place in school, we still endeavour to maintain a vibrant school life to provide memorable school experiences for our students. Our teachers are working creatively to carry out as many planned 
school programmes as possible. However, where programmes require students congregating, such programmes will be held online, or cancelled. We are determined that our key school events like Founder’s Day, National Day and other celebratory events would still continue, albeit taking different approaches altogether, in adherence to the safe measures.

I am heartened to share that the Fairfield Community, though isolated at home during the Circuit Breaker, came together to form a Fairfield Virtual Ensemble to present the song “Singapore, Unite as One”, originally composed by our student, Jacob Neo. This video reminds us of 
how, together, we overcome adversity with grit and tenacity during this pandemic. We thank many of you who participated to make this video 
a reality. The video will be launched to the public via the Fairfield Alumni Facebook page and school website on 6 June 2020 (Sat). You will 
receive a notification with the video link via Parents’ Gateway. Do share the video with your friends and family as we hope that the message
will bless the hearts of many.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank many of our stakeholders - for our Chaplains, Christian workers and praying parents - 
who pray for, encourage and bless our children and staff in Fairfield.

To God be the Glory!

In partnership with you,
Mdm Law Li Mei
