3 Feb 2020


Greetings to parents/guardians of our class of 2020/21.  Welcome to the NYJC family.

Some of you might have read about, and even signed up for our first Meet-the-Parents Session that was supposed to take place on Thursday (6th Feb). Due to the recent development in the 2019 Novel Coronavirus situation, MOE is stepping up in the precautionary measures. Schools need to practise social distancing and as such, we have cancelled the meeting and the Subject Combination Consultation Session. However, if you have questions regarding the selection of subject combination, you may contact us at 6284 2281 or email us at nyjc@moe.edu.sg and we will arrange for a Head of Department to return your call or respond to your email.

Adjustments have also been made to the Orientation programme.

Students who have been placed on Leave of Absence (LOA) have been informed and they will not be reporting to college till their LOA has ended.

Let us all play our part in keeping good personal hygiene and taking social responsibility. There may be some inconveniences as preventive steps are taken, but together we can keep all safe while minimising disruption to learning.

Introduction

Like all parents, we at NYJC care for our students and we want them to succeed. A positive partnership between the college and parents will contribute tremendously to ensuring their success. With strong home learning environment and positive communication between the teachers and parents, the students would be better supported through this very intense and demanding period of pre-university education.

We understand that parents are busy with many things that would take away their time and energy and hence we strive to provide parents with information and resources that they would need in order to support their child’s academically and emotionally. Besides getting information about college programmes and activities via the college website and our college's facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Nanyangjc/), parents may also consider downloading the ParentsGateway app, through which you would be able to access announcements, termly updates, letters to parents and even consent forms on your mobile device.  For more information on ParentsGateway, please read Information for new Parents Gateway.pdf

We would also like to encourage more parents to be involved in college programmes and decisions that would affect their child’s education and development. Some areas of involvement include supporting our career guidance effort by sharing work experiences, and volunteering to run enrichment workshops and talks to support our Character and Leadership Development Programme.
  
The college and students can definitely benefit from the development of positive partnerships with parents and we look forward to working with you.
