Bedok Green Primary School
I am delighted to be appointed Principal of Bedok Green Primary School with effect from 15 December 2019, and deeply honored to take over the reins from Mrs Celine Ng Kim Choo. Under Mrs Ng’s principalship from 2016 to 2019, Bedok Green Primary School has been transformed from strength to strength, and this was clearly evident from our recently-concluded MOE Customised Validation Exercise, where the school was affirmed for her clarity in school vision, forward-looking direction, effective processes and impactful teaching and learning practices. Most importantly, the MOE Senior Consultants who validated the school commended Bedok Green Primary School for her genuine care for both students and staff, and positive Teacher-Student Relationship. Most recently, our green efforts were also recognized at the Singapore Environment Council-StarHub School Green Awards (SGA) 2019 and the Green Schools @ South East Awards 2019, where we attained the Yellow Flame Award and the Sustained Excellence Award respectively. This is indeed testament to our school’s effective and sustained efforts to develop the whole child.
As we progress into a new decade in 2020, it is going to be a very exciting time for BGPians. Our theme for 2020, ‘EMPOWER @BGPS’, builds on the theme from 2019 and stands for “Equipping My Pupils to take OWnership and Embrace Resilience”. We will promote greater autonomy and independence among students to discover their strengths and interests, so that they will develop a passion for learning and inculcate a spirit of resilience as they build a platform for success in every aspect of daily school life. It is our desire that every child who passes through the gates of Bedok Green continues to develop holistically – cognitively, physically, aesthetically, socially and with sound, moral values. To emphasize this, all our classes will continue to be named after the school values – Integrity, Respectful, Responsible, Resilient, Compassionate, Brave, Gracious and Perseverance.
My teachers and I look forward to working with you and your child in the new school year. We warmly welcome all students for an exciting time of learning and growth, and specially embrace with open arms all new students who have chosen to make Bedok Green Primary School their second home. For our new Primary Ones, my teachers have specially planned a three-day orientation programme to help them set goals and adapt to school routines and expectations. I am sure that they will find the orientation beneficial as they make new friends and discover that Bedok Green teachers are caring and nurturing.
