Our Beliefs

In Seng Kang Primary, we believe in building a good foundation in pupils’ language skills (reading, speaking, listening and writing) right from Primary One. We believe that language is acquired through reading and frequent use.
Here in Seng Kang Primary, we have an array of programmes to promote reading and speaking. We provide many opportunities for pupils to read good books, listen to stories and voice their opinions orally and in writing. We also provide various platforms to allow our pupils to use language confidently and creatively through public performances, language games and competitions.
We hope to develop our pupils holistically so that they can use Internationally Acceptable English with confidence.
Based on these beliefs, we have adopted a Whole- School Approach to Effective Communication in English (WSA-EC) focusing on reading and speaking.
