Q: Will my child be spending the whole time in front of the computer during HBL?
A: HBL is a mixture of online and offline work. Online work can be assignments on SLS or live teaching done by teachers. Offline work includes doing assignments on the respective subject workbooks. Most importantly, there will be aesthetics (PE, Art & Music) work assigned to them as well.
Q: Where can I find the work assigned for the day?
A: The weekly schedule will be uploaded on go.gov.sg/mps-hbl. If you are not able to access the site from overseas, you may contact your Form Teacher.
Q: Why is there no Zoom lesson today?
A: Not all days require students to use Zoom or other video conferencing apps. The weekly schedule will list the different types of work assigned for the week.
Q: My child is unable to complete the work at the stipulated timing due to siblings using the laptop. My child is only able to complete HBL after I have come back from work. Help?
A: Students are encouraged to finish their work at the given timing to build a routine. However, if that is not possible due to the above mentioned reasons, finishing their work at a later time is fine as well. Do take note of not allowing uncompleted work to snowball.
