It is my privilege
and honour to be appointed to lead Yio Chu Kang Primary School. I look forward
to partnering with all stakeholders of the school to provide an all-rounded
education experience for our students.
In Yio Chu Kang Primary, we believe that every child has the
potential to learn and achieve. The school’s
philosophy drives us to bring out the best in every child. We are committed to
ignite the joy of learning in them and provide opportunities for discovery and
exploration. We want to bring up the happy child who is confident, curious and
caring. The child will learn to interact well with his peers, think critically
and take responsibility for his learning.
Learning and teaching in YCKPS is guided by the school’s Curriculum
Framework. Central to this is the school’s vision for every student: Empowering
Mind, Engaging Heart, Extending Hands. The ultimate goal of our curriculum is to develop every
YCKPS student into a Self-directed Learner, a Confident Person, a Concerned
Citizen, and an Active Contributor. The school harnesses five key learning approaches: Differentiation,
Authenticity and Relevance, Experiential, Collaboration and Integration. This
is to provide enriching and engaging experiences for the holistic
development of our students.
academic programmes, we want to build in every child a strong foundation in
literacy and numeracy. Our school-based curriculum creates experiences that
enable our learners to see connections across disciplines and acquire
competencies such as critical thinking, collaboration and communication skills
that will enable them to thrive in the fast-changing future landscape.
We imbue in our learners core values so
that they grow up to be morally upright individuals who are globally aware
while being rooted as Singaporeans. The school’s values of Caring, Upright, Progressive
and Excellence are constantly reinforced to guide both staff and
students in their thoughts, actions and behaviour. We provide opportunities for
our students to reflect on the needs of the community and how they could serve
others by putting their values in action.
Through all these,
we nurture our students to become youths of character who are keen to serve and
to make a positive impact wherever they go.
