News, Events & Announcements
Due to current COVID-19 situation considerations on the safety of our students and staff, as well as public health, we have decided to cancel our Public Info Session that was originally rescheduled to 3 August 2020. Meanwhile, we will continue to make available our online Public Info Session Video, which provides a condensed version of what we have planned to share during the session.
For any follow-up enquires or clarifications after watching the video, please write in to email@example.com.
Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience caused.
‘No different from other teachers’: The childcare aide with special needs
When one voluntary welfare organisation decided to tap on people with special needs to work in their childcare centres, questions arose: Would having them there create more work for the teachers? Would the children accept her? And would their parents give her a chance?
Virtual 2020 New Student & Parent Orientation
20/20 Vision. Though most parents were physically out-of-sight at Grace Orchard School’s New Student and Teacher Orientation on 20 June ’20, the school’s vision for a virtually-run orientation remains clear. As with previous years, GOS’ Orientation seeks to journey and provide a platform to interact and prepare new students and their parents for a smooth entry into the school.
This year is the same but, yet different. As the COVID-19 pandemic brought widespread disruption to schedules and activities, the Orientation, as we know it, would have been a no-go. However, in embracing the Mission of GO* (Grace Orchard), we wanted to make a difference and to make the best of the situation by still having an Orientation – but a virtual one.
Relocation of Grace Orchard School in Semester 2, 2021
We are pleased to share that we will be working with the Ministry of Education (MOE) to expand and refurbish the current campus of Grace Orchard School (GOS) at 6A, Jurong West Street 52. This will cater to the increase in demand for school places and provide new and improved facilities for our students to engage in learning of academic subjects, vocational training and independent living.
To facilitate the expansion plan, GOS will be relocating to a holding site at 170 West Coast Road for an estimated period of 4 years, starting from Semester 2, 2021.
Grace Orchard School caters to students who have been diagnosed with Mild Intellectual Disability (MID) and those with Mild Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The school is specifically for students ranging from 7-18 years old who have Intellectual Quotient (IQ) which falls within the range of 50-70.
