2016 Term 4

Dear Parents/Guardians
1. 2016 will soon draw to a close. After SG50 in 2015, this year, our nation takes its initial steps for the next 10, 25, 50 or 100 years depending on how far ahead you wish to look. We have a strong foundation to build on and our younger generations have a bright future ahead of them. However, this should not lead to complacency. Even as we face the future with optimism, we must be fully aware of the challenges that need to be tackled. We can take pride in our past achievements but we must continue to strive to do better and be open to learn and adapt to changes. Strength of character and the spirit of lifelong learning will be essential pillars for us to navigate future complexities. We, as parents and educators, are essential role models for our children. So let’s set the example so that they can take reference from us as they chart their own pathways.

2016 Term 2

Dear Parents/Guardians

1. In the beginning of the year (letter dated 4 Jan 2016), I had shared that I will be using the rest of the year to outline how you can play your part for each of our school’s Strategic Thrusts. In that letter, I focused on “Providing a balanced curriculum that emphasises strong fundamentals and future learning”. For this term, I will elaborate on Strategic Thrust 2 – Creating a learner-centred school conducive for teaching and learning.

2. Creating a learner-centred school is essentially about creating a supportive environment for our students to flourish in. This thrust will help us to achieve four key objectives. They are: (i) transformation of learning spaces to ensure that our students can effectively engage in learning in and out of the classrooms, (ii) emphasis on the safety and security of students, staff, and those using our premises; (iii) development of student discipline and the relevant character attributes for effective learning to take place; and (iv) advancement of an innovative, efficient and effective administration to support learning and teaching.
