Welcome note from the Principal
Welcome back to 2017.
At Xingnan Primary, we believe that all children are curious, active and competent learners. They can learn almost anything with the right support and environment. Our focus as educators is to facilitate authentic learning experiences through quality interactions. Even as we strive for academic excellence, we want to provide opportunities for their holistic development and to nurture the whole child for lifelong learning. These include Programme for Active Learning (PAL), Modular CCA (MOCCA) activities, Learning Journeys (LJs) and overseas exchange programmes. We would like to provide a vibrant environment that nurtures minds and builds character. Our vision is for every Xingnanian to be ‘A Self-Directed Learner, A Gracious Citizen’. Together with this mission and vision, we hope that every pupil will be well-anchored in our core values of creativity, loyalty, empathy, respect and responsibility.
In 2016, we received many accolades. These include outstanding achievements in performing arts at the Singapore Youth Festival 2016 and in sports at the National Schools Games. We have also received other school awards such as the People Developer Standard (PDS) and the Civil Defence (CD) Ready Schools. We are proud of these achievements. All of these would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our teachers and staff. We also appreciate the support of our stakeholders and partners especially our School Advisory Committee, our Parent Support Group and our parents for their commitment and dedication to the school.
This year we celebrate our 85th Anniversary as a school. Our school has had a long and rich history and has achieved much over the years. To mark this joyous occasion, a series of programmes and activities has been planned. Our achievements have been made possible with the close partnership and support of the community. Hence, the theme of our 85th anniversary is “Celebrating with a Heart”. Our school aims to nurture our pupils to be gracious citizens who are concerned about the school and the community, and who champion the needs and concerns of others. Through our various activities, we will express the school’s appreciation to our stakeholders, and affirm our continuous commitment by giving back to the community.
