Administrative Matters

1. Leave of Absence


The Leave of Absence (LOA) scheme was implemented in 1999 to enable students accompanying their parents on overseas postings to maintain links with Singapore and their schools through allowing them to retain their existing school places. LOA fees are charged to defray the schools’ administrative costs of keeping in touch with these students. The LOA fee of $156 is computed based on the miscellaneous fee:    
Monthly Miscellaneous fee $13 = Standard fee  $6.50 + 2nd tier $6.50 
Annual LOA Fee  = $13 x 12 months = $156   

LOA fee is non-refundable.

Procedures for Application for LOA   

First Time Applicant needs to do the following: ·        
  • Inform the school’s Admin Manager by phone at 6481 2273 or email rosyth_sch@moe.edu.sg

Renewal of LOA              

  • Submit the renewal  Application Form together with the required payment to the school before 30 November each year.     

Confirmation of LOA               

  • The official receipt and the approved copy of the application form will be mailed to the local address specified by an applicant.              
  • Parents are required to update the school for any change of contact address (local or overseas).

Termination of LOA    

Please note that LOA status will lapse for children whose parents do not pay the annual fees and submit the application form by 30 November of the current year. The child’s place in the school will be released to other children on the wait list.

b.         Gates 1, 6 and 7 are accessible to pedestrians only.  Thus, students are required to use the                 pedestrian crossings (marked with the letter A) For the safety of your children, please do not attempt to enter or leave the school through Gates 4 or 5 on foot. Bicycle racks are available at the parents waiting area at Gate 1 should you be cycling to school.

Should you encounter problems keeping to the right lane on Serangoon North Ave 3, you should               continue on the left lane along Serangoon North Ave 3 and make a ‘U’-turn at the end of the road.               This will bring you back to the junction of Serangoon North Ave 3 and Serangoon North Ave 4 again.
