Kampung Admiralty Open Plaza Update #07

I have finally find out the rationale behind not closing the rain screen. It is a joint decision of all parties to keep it open regardless of rain or shine. It will only be closed when event are held at the open plaza. In fact, it should be closed during rainy days as the wet floor may posed a safer hazards to the senior citizens. It will contribute to higher risk of fall by the elderly.

It is not fully automatic as there is no rain sensor to activate it to close. The FCC need to activate it at their control centre.

Any thoughts, please leave a comment.

Kampung Admiralty Open Plaza Update #06

Kampung Admiralty had many awards but there are also pending issues awaiting to be resolved. The open plaza sky light canopy is not automatic and pose an issue during rainy day.


The open plaza is wet again as the sky light canopy did not closed. It needs manual intervention which still awaiting HDB to resolve it.

It is a safety issues and may result in senior citizen having a fall. It is not evident that anyone is following up on this case as outstanding since Oct 2017.

Kampung Admiralty Escalator B1 to L1 Updates #01

The Service Team was on site on 16 & 17 Jan trying to rectify the problem. It looks like it was not an easy task as a lot of man hours had been put in. This is consider a relatively new escalator as run time is only less than 6 months. The repair had been completed and open for public usage.

The quality of escalator is very important. Fujitec and Kone usually can rectify their escalator in a timely manner. They only spend more man days when doing preventive maintenance. HDB need to review the operation and quality of IFE before they made subsequent purchase for their other projects or have alternative suppliers.

Woodlands Ring Secondary Principal Address

Today is the first principal address to the students and parents. It was a fruitful one hour presentation as we discover WRS school management and nurturing our child.

The principal made it very clearly that WRS facility is not as good as the other schools in Woodlands like Evergreen or Woodgrove. I have email MOE hoping that they will have plans to improve the facility and have a more conducive environment for the students. You can play a part also if your child is in this school

The school is still the top three choices during the S1 exercise. This is due to the school management and its good location for residents in Admiralty.

The below is how they will be graded in the first year

  • Term 1 CA Test (15%)
  • Term 2 CA Test (15%)
  • Term 3 CA Test (15%)
  • Final Year Exam (45%)
  • Performance Task (10%)

You will have noticed that they do not have mid year exams unlike most of the main stream secondary schools.

Let’s hope my son will have an enjoyable 4 years in this school. He will be able to walk out of the gates with a good character and acceptable results.

I will talk about WRS CCA in the next post as it is part of their development in the school.
