As the summer begins, our summer maintenance works had also started smoothly last week. One of the major maintenance works planned for this summer is the repainting of our interior and exterior walls. This is the first painting project since we have relocated to Hillside. The painting works are well underway and hope the weather will be kind enough allowing the paint works to complete as scheduled.
One of the other significant maintenance projects is the replacement of our air-condition chiller plant system. The current ventilation system has been in place for many years and is coming to the end of its course. As you can imagine, this is a massive project. We have explored different options in the past few months, and we intend to secure a project consultant this summer. Our preliminary plan is to conduct any heavy works during school holidays, namely over Christmas, Easter and Summer 2020, to avoid any disruption to our regular classes.
You would have received the 2019-20 fee announcement for Hillside in late March, part of this fee increase is related to these said maintenance projects (painting & air-con). We hope you would appreciate that our ongoing maintenance plan ensures that our school environment is conducive to learning and is safe for everyone.
We will, of course, continue to keep parents informed of any updates involving our school maintenance projects.
