Assoc Prof Jamus Jerome Lim asked the Minister for Education whether primary and secondary schools currently have the flexibility to stagger school start and end times for different cohorts within the school.
Mr Chan Chun Sing: Primary and secondary schools have the autonomy to stagger school start and end times for different cohorts within the school, based on their student profiles, after-school and inter-school programmes, transport provisions and the local transport situation. For instance, some schools have staggered their dismissal times for different levels so as to improve traffic flow outside their schools.
