24 July 2014
Dear Parents,
Construction of Indoor Sports Hall (ISH) in Westwood Secondary School
To further support broad-based education, the Ministry of Education is providing schools
with an Indoor Sports Hall (ISH). The ISH will allow schools greater flexibility to schedule
Physical Education (PE) lessons without having to worry about the weather, and give more
students the opportunity to participate actively in sports and games. PE, sports and games are
integral to the holistic, well-rounded education that our schools provide.
I am pleased to inform you that MOE has appointed Union Contractors (Singapore) Pte Ltd
to construct a 3-storey indoor sports hall in our school. The ISH will be built on the existing
basketball court that faces Jalan Bahar Road. The construction work will begin soon and is
expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2015. During this period of time when the
construction is going on, we expect some inconvenience that will arise due to the sound and
dust. The school is working very closely with the contractors to ensure the safety of our
students. For teaching and learning to take place effectively in the classroom, the classrooms
in the blocks facing the construction site will also be air-conditioned.
We have briefed our students on the construction and the safety precautions they need to take
note of. We will be sending letters to the residents nearby to alert them as well. I seek your
understanding in this matter and should you have any queries, do feel free to contact the
Thank you.
Warmest Regards,
Ms Sandra Gwee
