LEAVE OF ABSENCE (LOA)

The Leave Of Absence (LOA) scheme allows your child to rejoin their school after they return from overseas.

If your child is granted Leave Of Absence (LOA), they will remain as a registered student of the school. They can then be re-admitted to the school directly after returning to Singapore.

LOA applies to all SC and PR children in primary school, secondary school, junior colleges and Millennia Institute.

ELIGIBILITY

To be granted Leave Of Absence (LOA), your child must fulfil all 3 of the following criteria:

·       An SC or PR.

·       Presently studying in a Singapore school.

·       Accompanying you on an overseas posting with the intention of rejoining their school after returning to Singapore.

Your child also qualifies for Leave Of Absence (LOA) if they are already registered for Primary 1 (P1) but will be overseas at the start of the year.

FEES

There will be an annual nominal fee for a child on Leave Of Absence (LOA). At the end of each year, you will need to decide whether to renew the Leave Of Absence (LOA) for another year. Your child’s Leave Of Absence (LOA) status will expire if you choose not to renew.

As a guide, the annual Leave Of Absence (LOA) fee for primary schools will be at least $39.
