Welcome note from the Principal


Dear Parents/Guardians

Welcome back to school. 

The year 2020 begins a new decade and includes a leap year. The number 2020 also brings other things to mind: 20/20 indicates that our eyesight is within normal range regarding distance. 20/20 vision means that you see an object clearly at a distance of 20 feet (6 metres) while an average person can also see the same object clearly at 20 feet (6 metres). As educators, we are always seeking to have a clearer vision of what is happening and will happen in the present and future lives of our pupils. We are constantly curating quality learning to provide opportunities for our pupils to develop holistically and be future-ready.

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. Even as we strive for academic excellence, we want our Xingnanians to have fun and enjoy their leaning. We want to provide them with opportunities for holistic development and 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 aim 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’. We want every pupil to be well-anchored in our core values of creativity, loyalty, empathy, respect and responsibility. Throughout their 6 years at Xingnan Primary, our pupils will experience our unique school-based X3 Learning Years Programme (eXcite, eXplore and eXtend) to prepare them for the future.

We are proud of our achievements over the years and we appreciate the hard work, effort and commitment of everyone who has contributed to these successes. We are grateful for the strong support given by our stakeholders and partners especially our School Advisory Committee, our Alumni, our Parent Support Group, our parents and families for their commitment and dedication to the school.

We will continue to forge meaningful partnerships in order to bring out the best in every Xingnanian.

Mr Charles Chan
