Dear Parents and Guardians,
Greetings and Happy New Year to all!
The New Year marks the beginning of a new chapter in the leadership of Seng Kang Primary School. As I assume leadership of the school (from 15 December 2016), I am deeply appreciative of the commendable work done by my predecessor and past principals to bring the school to its good standing in the community today. It is with honour and privilege to be given this opportunity to serve and contribute to the Seng Kang Primary family and its extended community and I aspire to do my best to build upon the good work done. I look forward to working alongside my staff in collaboration with yourself, our parents as well as our stakeholders to bring out the best in each of our SKPS students.
In SKPS, we believe that Everyone is Special; Everyone can Learn and Achieve; and Everyone can Serve. With our beliefs as signposts we are committed to develop our students holistically, to realise the potential in them by building on their strengths and interests and supporting them in their areas of needs. Working amidst the changing global and national contexts with anticipation of disruptions due to technology and tlnreats to our social cohesion, we understand the need to anchor our students on strong values, build their resilience and equip them with competencies and life skills to thrive in the future of tomorrow.
Together with the staff, we design learning experiences to ignite and foster the joy of leaming in our students so that as confident inquirers and self-directed learners, they seek the quest of knowledge beyond the classrooms. We provide a myriad of opportunities for our students to lead, experiment and innovate, to try and fail, to learn, unlearn and relearn; so as to build in them the entrepreneurial dare and character resilience to be leaders of the future. Together with parents and stakeholders, we want to share narratives of the Singapore story so that our children will appreciate the struggles of our forefathers in nation building and strengthen their Singapore spirit to stay rooted as concerned citizens while they understand the need to go global.
It is in our core duty to lay a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy of our children, instill in them core values and moral principles, support them in their social emotional development and equip them with the 21st century competencies to prepare them as effective individuals ready for post-primary education. As a staff, we take pride in our culture of Care, Innovation and Excellence to reinvent ourselves and hone our pedagogical skills to stay relevant for our learners. We will work with partners to provide authentic and enriched learning experiences to broaden the horizons of our students.
We look forward to your continued support, feedback and suggestions so that we can continue to improve as an organisation on this journey of excellence to realise our desired outcomes to nurture SKPS students into Confident Communicators, Critical Thinkers and Concerned Citizens.
We wish you and our students
a Delightful, Engaging
and Purposeful 2017!
Mrs Teo Whye Choo
