Campus Card

Student ID Card

You are not required to apply for a Student ID card as it will be issued on their first day of school. 

Parent Security Card

As part of our Safeguarding Framework, we require that all persons entering the College are correctly identified. Students, parents, staff and visitors are issued with coloured security lanyards to ensure that they are easily identifiable. Passes will need to be worn at all times whilst visiting the campus.

For new families, Temporary parent lanyards will be available for collection from your oldest child's reception on the first day. On the first week of start of term, a booth will be set up at the Performing Arts Theatre for immediate collection of your new Parent Security card. Please note that this will only be available for both parents. Registration of any additional cards for nominated person or relatives will be available online on MyCollege.

The College will supply two passes per family for the parents listed on the admission application form at no cost but thereafter will charge S$20.00 per card. This charge will also be applicable for misplaced cards.

School Lunches

Students may bring a packed lunch from home if they prefer and all students are required to bring a labeled water bottle which they can refill from water dispensers as required. Lunch cards can be topped up online or by using one of the three cash top-up machines in school. More information can be found in the Parent Handbook below.

Please note that we are a nut-free school. Packed lunches and snacks must not contain any nuts or nut derivative products. To avoid any issues on the first day we advise all new students to bring a packed lunch.

Medical Form

Please complete your medical form when you have access to MyCollege. There are a number of legally required vaccinations in Singapore. Should your child not be vaccinated, please contact the admissions team as soon as possible. Your child will not be permitted to start should this information not be completed.
