Student Support

We understand this is a difficult time for everyone. We would like to support our students and their caregivers as much as we can. 

1. HBL@School
Please use the form below to let us know if your son/ward needs the following support during this time of full home-based learning:

  • a computing device to do his home-based learning
  • internet access to do his home-based learning
  • counselling support (for students only)
  • a conducive HBL environment in school (approved only on a case by case basis)




2. Financial Assistance

Should you need help with support for meals at home for your son/ward during this period of home-based learning, please consider applying for the MOE Financial Assistance Scheme, which provides financial assistance to Singaporean students from our school.

Application forms are available from the school General Office or via the link below:


Submit the completed forms, with as many supporting documents as possible, to our school’s General Office or via email stgss@moe.edu.sg

We will try our best to expedite the approval process especially during this Covid-19 situation.

Additional Support for MOE-FAS Students

To provide additional support for students on MOE FAS during this circuit breaker period, MOE will credit four weeks of meal subsidies via students’ School Smartcard.  They will receive $120 each via 2 top-ups of $60 spaced 2 weeks apart. 

Students can redeem their meal subsidies at any TransitLink Add Value Machine once every two weeks, starting from 14 April 2020. (Refer to pdf, pg 1 – 3)

This amount in the students’ School Smartcard can be used to purchase food and essential groceries at some hawker centres, food courts, minimarts, convenience stores and supermarkets.  (Refer to pdf, pg 4 - 8)

Recess@Home will now be part of this added support for school meals.  Students previously identified under Recess@Home will not receive the $85 via PayNow or bank transfer but they will now receive $120 credited via their School Smartcards.
