Warmest greetings to all of you and wishing everyone a great year in 2018.
It has been a very enriching year for FTPPS in 2017 with memorable learning experiences and the witnessing of the fruition of the collective and collaborative effort of our staff, students and stakeholders in nurturing every FTPPS student to his or her best.
With the completion of the school’s PERI Upgrading project, our students have been endowed with many new facilities that have made it possible to optimise their learning experiences through greater flexibility in providing a well-balanced education. Very aptly, Unleashing Potential Through Joy of Learning was chosen as the theme for 2017-2018 as engaging opportunities are provided in diverse domains, be it in the cognitive, aesthetics, sports, student leadership or character development, for students to truly have the joy of learning and develop their entrepreneurial dare. We believe that through these opportunities and experiences, they can discover their interests, grow their passions, and love what they do. We are heartened to see our students being actively engaged and energised not only when they learn in the classrooms, but also out in the school gardens and outdoor learning areas, during learning journeys and camps, and while playing outdoor games. School-initiated programmes such as Speech & Drama, Literacy Through Photography, Values-in-Action and Leader-in-Me, continue to excite our students and provide the impetus to develop them into confident persons, self-directed learners, active contributors and concerned citizens.
The school is privileged to have a strong, committed and caring team of educators and support staff who inspire and are positive role models for the students, as validated by the feedback we have received from parents and students. We are also deeply appreciative of our School Advisory Committee, parents and the community who have invested their invaluable time and resources in partnering the school to bring out the best in our students and prepare them for the future. Our committed and resourceful Parents’ Support Group is also a distinctive sign of the group’s commitment to building a strong partnership with the school to benefit the students.
Going forward, FTPPS will continue to leverage the strengths and synergy of our SAC, staff, parents and the community, to provide our students with a student-centric, values-driven education. I am confident that students in FTPPS will not only acquire strong fundamentals in numeracy and literacy, but also grow stronger in character, recognising what it takes to be a valued Singaporean and an FTPPS student, and one who takes ownership in shaping a Future Singapore that we can be all proud of.
