NHS utilized the global pandemic of COVID-19 situation as a moment to educate and rebuild the teaching and learning strategies at the New Horizon School to meet the changing needs of students. We have insisted on the Health and safety measures advised by the Ministry of Health on COVID 19.

  • As a precautionary measure the New Horizon School Campus – Jannusan was disinfected completely by an outsourced company to assure our employee’s health and safety.
