Principal's Foreword

Dear Parents/Guardians,
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.

Through our 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.
