DEFINITION

Noun

A schooling system consisting of a single session of school that starts from around 7:30 am and ends at around 3 pm. The term is mainly used in contrast to the double-session system, which consists of morning and afternoon sessions of school.

由来
  • 2009年,小学教育检讨及执行委员会(Primary Education Review and Implementation Committee)建议所有新加坡小学在2010年前改为单班制。
  • 单班制的实施,主要是为了提升全面教育,并增加学生在课程辅助活动的参与度和参与时间。
  • 单班制的上课下课时间有别于双班制,双班制的上午班时间一般从上午7点30分至中午1点30分,下午班时间则是从大约12点30分至6点30分。
  • 虽然教育部鼓励小学实施单班制,但目前仍有5所小学继续双班制的上课制度,但在这些学校翻新后,大部分将转至单班制。
ETYMOLOGY
  • In 2009, the Primary Education Review and Implementation Committee recommended all primary schools in Singapore to switch to a single-session system by 2010. 

  • The single-session system was implemented mainly to enhance a well-rounded education, and free up more time for students to participate in co-curricular activities. 

  • The start and end times for single-session schools differ from those of double-session schools. For the latter, the morning session typically starts from 7:30 am and ends at 1:30 pm, while the afternoon session begins at around 12:30 pm and ends at around 6:30 pm. 

  • Although the Ministry of Education has encouraged primary schools to implement the single-session system, there are currently five primary schools which continue to operate in dual sessions. However, after renovation, most of these schools will switch to a single session.

SAMPLE SENTENCE
In 2010, the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan donated more than $12 million to expand the classrooms of its affiliated schools over the course of six years. This allowed five primary schools to adopt the single-session system, and provided them with the funds required to construct additional facilities on top of the standard requirements of the Ministry of Education.
