Online lessons to continue through Phase 1 of post-circuit breaker period
25 May 2020, Kristie Lim
Thank you for your support and trust in us during this period as we embrace a new normal in online learning together.
On 19 May 2020, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce and the Ministry of Education announced the gradual easing of Circuit Breaker measures from 2 June. However, Tuition and Enrichment centres are still not permitted to resume business operations under Phase 1. As such, our physical classes will remain suspended in the month of June or longer, until further announcement from the Government on when Phase 2 will set in. Mind Stretcher’s interactive live lessons will continue to be delivered online. To ensure the best learning experience for your child, we will be mailing all hardcopies of worksheets to you. You can expect to receive them before the lessons in June.
Tuition Fees Discount in June 2020
During this period, we would like to continue to extend our support to you by offering a discount of 15% for your Tuition Fees in June, albeit a reduced discount from the previous 25%. The discount is on top of any bundle discounts which you may have had and applicable to all new and continuing students.
This decision does not come easy for us as we have made substantial investment in technology and teacher IT training/support in order to bring online lessons to all our students, so that their learning need not be disrupted during the circuit breaker. There are also substantial additional costs incurred with respect to increased manpower for sorting, packing and mailing hardcopies materials to all our students, postage/courier and related expenses. This is in addition to regular expenses such as rental, for which, many of our private landlords do not or give limited rebates.
We wish to thank all parents for working hand-in-hand with our team and our teachers during this challenging period. We will continue to do our best to bring the best to our students.
