Warm greetings from At-Sunrice Globalchef Academy. The Singapore government announced tighter containment measures of COVID-19 and an extension of its Circuit Breaker period to 1 June 2020, keeping our campus closed until then.
We remain committed in upholding quality education while keeping everyone safe. Our pivot to full online classes has been rated above 8 on overall satisfaction by both students and instructors since the Circuit Breaker kicked in on April 7. We have been using digital teaching and learning assets for the past 18 months through our DigiChef Academy and we continue to ramp up the quality of our online teaching to cover even craft-skills without physical kitchen laboratories. Our Chef instructors are working hard to innovatively impart craft-skills, coaching students to cook and bake for their family at home with modified recipes. This way, we ensure that our students are well prepped and ready to finesse their craft when the Academy labs are reopened. We want to ensure that COVID-19 does not cause any student to lose time from chasing their culinary passion and delay the start of a culinary career.
For students who are already in their Industrial Attachments, we have been actively assisting them with alternative arrangements and online learning. In At-Sunrice, teaching and learning never stops.
Till we meet again when normalcy returns, stay safe, stay positive and stay healthy.
Tan Chor Pang
Deputy Chief Executive
