Dear Parents and Students,
Assessment Tests for the Malaysian Private Schools
The primary and secondary Malaysian private schools are having assessment tests from 10 to 20 March.
During these times, we would appreciate that silence is observed. However, please take note that ECAs and swimming lessons will be carried out as usual.
A fire drill will be carried out on Friday morning, 21 March at 8.30am. A fire drill is a very important practice and a test of our fire evacuation and response procedures. Teachers will go through the fire drill procedure with the students and familiarize them with the procedure. Even though they are drills, they are very important because through practice our students will learn what to do and how to behave in an emergency.

Dear Parents/ Students,
Mr. Edward Pragasam, In Memory
Mr. Edward Pragasam, our beloved head of art, passed away in the early hours of Sunday, 15 th September at the Singapore General Hospital, having undergone cardio surgery ten days earlier. He was an artist whose passion for education surpassed his love of art. He was a mentor to countless number of students and even in his old age, he was full of enthusiasm and optimism, inspiring students to pursue their passions and dreams. His hopes to hold an exhibition of his collection of artwork had since become a memory.
His passing on Sunday just prior to his 75th birthday, saddened us greatly as his presence will be dearly missed by all at Sri Ara.
