On Tuesday, 17 March 2020 the eighth edition of the Preschool Seminar was delivered as an online seminar for the first time to ensure the safety of participants in light of COVID-19. Despite its online format, sign-ups for the online seminar came through reasonably well. The DAS welcomed 206 participants to its first online Preschool Seminar a purposeful blend of deep exploration of topics emphasising the importance of early intervention and workshops imparting practical tips to help preschool learners achieve.


As the COVID-19 situation was developing in Singapore the DAS at the request of the MOE, shifted all classes for 3000 students to Home Based Learning to enhance the safety of our students. Students continued classes online with minimal disruptions and were provided with additional take-home learning pack resources.
