Important Notice (April)

In line with the nation’s efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19, VLCS will implement full Home-Based Learning (HBL) from 8 April to 4 May, 2020. HBL will follow our regular school hours, 7:50am-1:00pm.

The school office will also be closed during this period.

It is significant that this “Singapore circuit-breaker” coincides with Passover (8-16 April, 2020). Let us continue to stand in the gap for the nations, that in this time of global crisis the peoples of the world will look to the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.

The LORD did not check who inside the house was worthy. He checked for the BLOOD on the doorposts. None of us is worthy. Only the blood of JESUS can cover us.
