We would like to thank Ms Indranee Rajah, Second Minister for Education for visiting our school.
Visiting various schools to get to know the educators and students better, as well as to gain deeper insights into the education issues.
Visited Blangah Rise Primary School on 17 July 2018
Had a great dialogue with a group of students from pri 4-6. They were confident in expressing themselves, and were especially excited about their CCA. One wants to be a scientist when she grows up as her dad inculcated in her a love of science, another wants to be a teacher and yet another would like to be a nurse (her CCA is Red Cross). One young boy, Wei Yang had a number of suggestions for the Science Centre which I promised to pass on.
In my dialogue with the teachers, I was heartened by how passionate they are in their efforts to provide a conducive school environment and positive school experience for their students.
I would like to encourage the teachers to continue their sterling efforts in recognising the different strengths and talents of our students, and in bringing out the best potential in each child.

Hebei Handan Laike Primary School
Our school hosted pupils and teachers from Hebei Handan Laike Primary School on 9 July and 10 July 2018. It was a meaningful cultural exchange for our pupils.
Reflections from pupils:
“It was a good eye-opener for me which I enjoyed. It was fun to be a guide to my new friend from China.” – Dusan Darius Eddy, 4 Opal
“I enjoyed my time spent with my new friend from China. We did a Merlion keychain together and also played some PE games together.” -- Heng Kok Huat Henri, 4 Opal
“My new friend Ansel, attended classes with me for the 2 days. I enjoyed studying with him.”
-- Yew Nian Yeow Nick, 5 Topaz
“Being a buddy to one of the pupils from China, was a great opportunity for me to learn more about the schools in China and more about the country. It was fun doing all the activities with my new friend from China. We shared the same hobby, that is reading and went to the library together during recess. Overall, I am very happy that I was given the chance to host my new friend and to learn a lot from her.” – Charlotte Soh Cai Yin, 5 Topaz
