Principal's Message

Greetings and a warm welcome to Seng Kang Primary School!

As the first school in the Sengkang neighbourhood, the school has established itself in the community building upon its firm foundation laid over the last 24 years. The school takes pride in its distinctive programmes to develop confident and effective communicators through a whole school approach to effective communication and to nurture positive and healthy learners through an inclusive sports and aesthetics education with a focus on character development and appreciation for the arts.

In Seng Kang Primary, we believe that every student is special, every student can learn and every student can serve. Our teachers take time to know each child and guide him/her to discover his strengths and develop his/her passion. We have an inclusive school culture in which every child matters where learning experiences are customised to bring out the best in each of them. We nurture gracious citizens who empathise with those in need and have the heart to care and serve their peers, school and the community.

Amid this volatile and uncertain landscape, it is imperative to ensure that our students are self-directed in their learning and digitally literate to be safe and responsible navigators in the cyber world. To ready them for the future, the school adopts four pedagogical approaches enabled by technology to imbue in our students positive learning dispositions, 21st century skills and social emotional competencies.  Learning experiences are inquiry-based and experiential to nurture curious and enthusiastic learners through exploration and experimentation. Students work collaboratively as they learn to be open-minded and respectful contributors. They are engaged in authentic problem solving scenarios where they appreciate connectedness across disciplines, to make a difference to those around them. Through these thoughtfully curated experiences, we aim to bring out the Inventive Thinker, Confident Leader and Gracious Citizen in every Seng Kang Primary student.

To better meet the diverse needs of our students, our teachers continually upskill to enhance their  professional competency. They collaborate in learning teams to inquire about their practices, share innovative teaching ideas and design learning experiences to deepen students’ subject mastery and conceptual understanding. Our departments forge strategic partnerships with stakeholders to extend the learning and broaden the horizons of our staff and students.

We are grateful to the School Advisory Committee, Parent Support Group EXCO and all parents for their kind understanding and strong support of the school, especially during this period when many restrictions are imposed due to the pandemic.  Their continual support and confidence in the school leadership have been a source of strength for the school community.

May the Year 2021 bring everyone good health, positive energy and high aspirations!

Yours in Education,

Mrs Teo 

We are now at a point where we must educate our children in what no one knew yesterday,

and prepare our schools for what no one knows yet.
