As students went back to school after the circuit breaker, Temasek Foundation
partnered the Early Childhood Development Agency and Ministry of Education to
give care items to all pre-school, early intervention centres, primary, secondary,
special education (SPED), junior college and Institute of Technical Education (ITE)
students and teachers, to help them stay safe.
Pre-school, primary, secondary, special education and junior college students received two bottles of hand sanitiser each: one 50ml pocket-sized sanitiser to carry with them, and a larger one of 500ml to refill the smaller one.
Pre-school and primary school students were given a face shield each, as added protection. All pre-school teachers and staff were also provided with face shields and oximeters.
In addition, students, service contractors and staff at ITE were each given a pair of reusable masks, one 50ml pocket-size.
This initiative benefitted more than 650,000 students, 42,000 teachers and contract staff.
