Sec 1 Registration (2022 Cohort)
Welcome, prospective Sec 1 students and parents!
On this webpage, you will find relevant information that will be useful for you as you begin your Meridian journey with us.
You are NOT required to physically report to your posted secondary school on 23rd Dec following the release of S1 Posting Results.
All applications will also be done online to minimise in-person interactions.
Purchase of Uniforms, Textbooks & Stationery
|You may refer to the information in the attached documents regarding procedures for purchase of School Uniforms, Textbooks & Stationery||Meridian Secondary School Booklist 2022 (1E)|
|Meridian Secondary School Booklist 2022 (1NA)|
|Meridian Secondary School Booklist 2022 (1NT)|
Textbook and uniform purchases can start only from 23 Dec onwards for the Sec 1 level. Please contact the vendor directly with regards to the purchases.
It is understandable that the vendor’s website might be overwhelmed with request and you might not be getting an immediate response from them. Do exercise patience with them.
Please be assured that if your child is unable to get a new set of uniforms when the term starts, he/ she can still report to us in his/ her primary uniform.
3. National Digital Literacy Programme (NDLP) and the Purchase of Chromebooks
At MOE’s Committee of Supply Debate in March 2020, MOE launched the National Digital Literacy Programme (NDLP) for our schools and Institutes of Higher Learning to help students strengthen their digital literacy. One of the components of the NDLP is the introduction of the Personalised Digital Learning Programme (PDLP) for all secondary school students, where every secondary school student will own a school-prescribed computing device or Personal Learning Device (PLD) by end-2021.
There will be a separate letter when school opens to provide important information on how you can purchase the PLD for your child/ward as well as the accompanying applications that we may be rolling out as part of the NDLP.
4. Subject-Based Banding
Sec 1 students posted to the N(A) and N(T) courses may be offered EL/Math/Science/MTL at a higher level, based on their PSLE subject grades.
PSLE eligibility criteria for offering higher level subjects:
Each student should take no more than 3 subjects at a higher level so as to ensure that students can cope with the overall academic demands.
Follow-up Required for Students Eligible for SBB
Students who are eligible will receive notification through Parents Gateway.
