CUT OFF

Dear Sir/ Mdm, In 2018, our aggregate range of 2018 PSLE students posted to 2019 Sec 1 are as follows:

Express: 234 – 252

Normal Academic: 182 – 199

Normal Technical: 139 – 157

 

However, we would very gently point out that these can change from year to year. Meeting the previous year’s minimum aggregate does not guarantee admission to the school. The current year’s minimum aggregate may vary and depends on the demand pattern and cohort size

 

 

FULL SBB

 

-         Will there still be streams?

-         What will happen to my child?

Riverside Secondary School is one of the 28 schools to pilot Full Subject-based banding. Full SBB is something that all secondary schools will experience in 2024.

 

Next year, our secondary one students will not be segregated into three different streams but rather, Normal stream students will be able to pursue subjects at the level of challenge that is more suited to them. All form classes will have a good mix of different students but academic rigour remains with students being grouped according to their calibre in a specific subject.

 

E.G. A “Normal Stream” student who is strong in Math might be in a G3 class for Math but may need additional support in his Mother Tongue and is therefore in a G2 class for Mother Tongue.

 

ALP/ LLP

ALP – Global Citizenship Education through Critical Social Inquiry

 

Our ALP seeks to prepare students for the ever-changing global landscape. Classroom subject mastery is foundational; students must be able to use the knowledge that they have learnt in the different subjects and combine that with soft skills life critical thinking, problem solving, being empathetic, taking different perspectives; in order to meet the challenges of the future.

 

LLP – Arts For Life

 

Humans are not meant to just work or be productive. Therefore, want to nurture, in our students, a deep seated joy and appreciation of the life and beauty that is around them. This programme seeks to build an appreciation of culture and the aesthetics in all of our students.

 

 

OPEN HOUSE

 

Our Open House was on the 9th of November. However, we are delighted to let you know that should you be interested to come down to the school, we have student councillors who will be available to take you on a short tour of our school as well as to interact with you to help you learn more about school life at Riverside. We also have QR codes at various locations for you to scan and learn about these places of interest.
