Welcome to singapore sikh education foundation

The Singapore Sikh Education Foundation (SSEF) is a self-help non-profit organisation focusing on providing Punjabi Language education for pupils in mainstream schools in Singapore. SSEF Punjabi Language School comes under the purview of the Board of Teaching and Testing of South Asian Languages (BTTSAL). BTTSAL is recognised by the Ministry of Education (Singapore) as it oversees the curriculum and assessment practices across the five officially recognised Non-Tamil Indian Languages (NTIL).


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for your support as we deal with the current COVID-19 situation in schools. We would like to urge all parents to continue to exercise vigilance and encourage our children to take the necessary precautionary measures. More information on the precautions taken in schools is available through the following link:

FAQ for 2019 Novel Coronovirus – Measures in Schools

We have requested for the latest travel declarations from all students and look forward to your continued support and understanding. Students must submit their declaration forms to the teachers and bring a copy along to BTTSAL (together with the documents required by BTTSAL in the letter sent through your child/ward) during their examinations and viewing of examination scripts. Form Teachers will also continue to keep in touch with you accordingly. More updates will be provided on additional precautions taken at SSEF Punjabi School and SSEF Kindergarten should there be further developments or instructions from BTTSAL. Thank you.
