It must have been a very difficult and a very different year for all of us, teachers, students, parents, and the whole of Singapore because of the COVID - 19 pandemic.
Yet, we have heard, read and seen for ourselves many of the kind deeds that are done by many of the people around us; some whom we know, many we don't. May we continue to be uplifted and also extend our help to those around us - our families, friends and even strangers.
With the circuit breaker measures, we have taken school to a new level. Many of us were moving to uncharted areas of FHBL. The teachers learnt new ICT skills, shared with each other new and better ways of making online lessons more interesting and new features that were embedded in Google Classrooms, SLS, etc.
For students, it is also challenging to do homework online, frequent network lag, more onscreen time and less social interactions with each others.
The new term will start on 2nd June. I believe all of us are looking forward to meeting each other and greeting each other face to face, although it will be very different from the usual start of the term.
Do continue to stay safe, keep healthy and be kind to each other!

Welcome back to school! 2020 marks the new decade for everyone. Wishing all a great start to the new decade!
The school has just celebrated its 100th Anniversary last year and we could see the school's standing together ensuring that the many of the celebration events were a success. We are all very blessed to be part of the centenary celebrations!
As we move forward to a new year, let's look at how we can be more caring, compassionate and joyful to others and ourselves as well as to our environment.
All the best for the new year!
Be a mindful Aphelionite!
