Regarding Arrangements for Pre/Post PSLE and S1 Preparatory Classes

Dear Parents,

Firstly, thank you for your continued support for HCL. As the PSLE examinations draw close, we wish your child all the best for the coming examinations.

Next year, your child will be entering a new phase in learning. Compared to primary school Chinese, secondary school Chinese will be more demanding in all aspects, including vocabulary, comprehension and writing. As such, many students face trouble with Chinese when entering secondary school. Thus, HCL has prepared a preparatory course for students after PSLE. Please note the following details:

Pre-PSLE arrangements:

  1. The 2021 PSLE CL examinations will occur on 4th October 2021 (Monday). P6 courses at HCL will thus end on 3rd October 2021 (Sunday).
  2. The 2021 PSLE HCL examinations will occur on 6th October 2021 (Wednesday). HCL will be arranging an extra class on 5th October to help students taking HCL make the final push. Due to Covid-19, this lesson will be online. There will be an additional charge of $66.90 (after GST and material fees) for this lesson. To sign up, please complete the form below and return it, with the fees to our administrative staff.
  3. There will be no lessons from 4th October to 10th October. Preparatory courses will commence 11th October.

Post-PSLE arrangements:
