FAQ

What are the school facilities?

Beacon Primary School is undergoing the Primary Education Review and Implementation (PERI) Committee upgrade. The school has new design norms such as dance and performing arts studios, as well as an outdoor jogging path. These facilities support the delivery of holistic education, and facilitate engaged learning in both the academic and co-curriculum areas. Students can look forward to new facilities that will support educational approaches, which encourage more interaction and self-discovery, and facilitate experiential and hands-on learning. The new facilities also better support differentiated learning, to meet the learning needs of different groups of students.

What must I do if I need to bring my child/ward home early?

The adult fetching the child must report to the office and fill in the necessary form(s) before leaving the school compound. Please do inform the Form Teacher in advance if you know that you need to fetch your child/ward early. Students are NOT allowed to leave the school on their own even if they have valid reasons to do so.


Can my child/ward bring a mobile phone or other electronic gadgets to school?  

 The school discourages students from bringing such items to school so that they do not distract themselves and others during school hours. Such items are brought at the students’ own risk and the school will not be responsible for any loss or damage. Students can use the pay phone located next to the school bookshop if they need to contact their parents/guardians on urgent matters.
