Morning session for all Singapore Primary Schools

The government is looking into a proposal to hold all the classes of primary schools in Singapore in the morning, giving time in the afternoon to the primary school students to take on additional self-development programmes.

It is a good mood though such proposal could need additional teachers and schools to house all the primary school classes from Primary 1 to Primary 6 all in one morning setting.

The Ministry of Education is also looking into upping the minimum entry level of all teachers including Primary School teachers to that of a bachelor. More studies to be done on this.

One thought I immediately have upon the MOE’s proposal for a single morning session for the primary schools is that roads may become even more congested and the already ‘sandwiched’ buses and MRT in the morning may become more packed, with more students and workers clamouring for the coveted seats and places in the buses and MRT!
