20210204 Sem 1 Canteen Seating Plan (Final).pdf

(4 Feb 2021) Updated Canteen/Foyer seating plan during recess

Please see attached for the final canteen seating plan which will be effective from Monday, 8 Feb 2021.

With the implementation of a designated recess venue for Y1 to Y4 students where you will swap between the canteen/foyer and homeroom on a monthly basis, the school now has sufficient tables and chairs to fit all levels at either the canteen or the foyer area. As such, the temporary tentage at The Oval will be removed by the end of this week.

Class labels have been pasted at the side of each table to indicate where you should sit during your recess at the canteen/foyer. Reminders to do the right thing have also been posted.


You are reminded to remain at their designated seats during recess breaks for these reasons:

1) to facilitate contact tracing for recesses;

2) to minimize intermingling as much as we can and to the best of our efforts; and

3) to ensure a safe distance between individuals.

Please do your part to help all of us make SJI a safe place for everyone.
