Message from the Principal

My warm thanks go to Mr. Gary Tsu for his help with the leadership transition at Wellington Primary School. His sincere desire for me to get off to a faster start in my early days on the job was evident. I believe that we have successfully made the shift and accelerated the value I can bring to the new role.

Education is about nurturing the whole person and Singapore's education system aims to provide all our students with a balanced and well-rounded education, develop them to their fullest potential, and nurture them into good citizens, conscious of their responsibilities to family, society and country. These characteristics are translated into a list of developmental outcomes and the fulfilment of these outcomes begins with primary education, which will lay the foundation for subsequent educational levels to build upon.

Primary education is where the journey begins and primary school Principals and teachers appreciate the important roles we play in influencing students' initial attitudes toward learning, social and personal responsibility, good character and moral virtues. In partnership with the home and community, we will carefully and painstakingly shape the right attitudes in our young at this early stage of their development.

The staff of Wellington Primary understands this challenge and has collectively agreed to the school mission of empowering every individual, nurture talents and groom leaders. We will continue to provide a very nurturing environment for students to develop into self-disciplined, responsible and respectful citizens while striving for excellence.

We will continue to apply our creative energy to initiate meaningful and engaging activities, perhaps with the help of home and community, to help our students become aware of their own interests and abilities and to be motivated while at the same time provide excitement to the students' educational experience.

May I take this opportunity to wish all Wellingtonians, friends and stakeholders of Wellington Primary School Singapore, a happy, blessed, and successful 2018.
