Mr Muru Nagaraju
The Pupil Management Department looks into the holistic development of the pupils. It assists the teachers in classroom management and is responsible for the development of pupils’ life skills and the ability to learn collaboratively. It is upheld by our 5 core school values of Passion for Learning, Resilience, Integrity, Diligence and Excellence for Self and Others (PRIDE). These values are also translated into the school rules and regulations. The Department works hand-in-hand with parents, the community and other external agencies in helping the pupils realise the school’s vision.

Bicycle Riding Safety Information
3 Simple Rules
- Helmets are required to protect yourself and it will save your life
- Ride with the traffic, not against it
- Use body sign language to communicate to motorists when turning
- Wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet. Protect your brain and save your life.
- Adjust your bicycle to fit. Make sure your legs are fully extended when you are pedalling.
- Check your equipment. Check that tyres are inflated properly and ensure that brakes are working.
- See and be seen. Always wear bright colours when riding day or night. Also wear something that reflects light, such as reflective tape or markings, or flashing lights. Remember, just because you can see a driver doesn’t mean the driver can see you.
- Maintain control over your bicycle. Always ride with at least one hand on the handlebars. Carry books and other items in a bicycle carrier or backpack.
- Watch out for road hazards. Be on the lookout for hazards such as potholes, humps, broken glass, gravel, puddles. All these hazards can result in a nasty fall.
- Avoid riding at night. It is more dangerous to ride at night than during the day because visibility is usually poor at night. If you have to ride at night, wear something that makes you visible. Make sure you have reflectors on the front and rear of your bicycle.
Alternative Route on Rainy Days for Motorists
On rainy days, we do allow parents to drop off the pupils in the school. Please be patient and follow the traffic in a single file. Do not overtake. Do keep an eye out for pedestrians. Do encourage your child to move quickly and carefully, when leaving the vehicle.
Vehicles will enter Gate A, passengers alight at Drop-off Area and vehicles will exit from Gate B.
