Principal's Message 2018
I am honoured to be appointed the Principal-Designate of this new school with effect from 4 April 2018, officially taking over the leadership effective 15 December 2018. It is a great privilege to join Jing Shan Primary School (JSPS) and I look forward to a fulfilling experience working with the dedicated and committed staff of JSPS to create lasting memories and collectively write this new chapter in JSPS’s proud history.
I would like to thank my predecessor principals, Mrs Joyce Ang (Da Qiao Primary School, 2014-2018)) and Mdm Goh Meei Yuun (Jing Shan Primary School, 2014-2018), for their strong leadership and will strive to build on the strong foundation that they had worked on and bring the Merged School to greater heights. Indeed, the list of accolades both the schools have received over the years is a testament of the dedication and hard work of the past principals, staff, School Advisory Committee, Parent Support Group, parents and students for their strong partnership with the school.
Staff and students from both schools are excited about the merger and the many opportunities it affords us to adopt the best practices of both schools. The rich heritage and memorable milestones of both schools will be celebrated and staff and students joining the merged school will learn the history and heritage of both schools which will be exhibited in the merged JSPS, leveraging a strong tradition of success and promising a bright future of excellence.
At JSPS, we strive to give every student a rich and meaningful educational experience – one they will benefit from and cherish, regardless of his or her starting point. Another key focus is the building of relationships amongst all our staff and students, which is aligned with our school theme for 2019, ‘United We Stand, Onward We Strive’.
Each child is gifted and with their own special talents. As a school, it leaves us to expose them with various possibilities and opportunities and help them discover and unleash their unique potential. I hope that our JSPS community will journey with me as we continue on this voyage of DISCOVERY for our students - a discovery of themselves, the community around them and the world around them.
May I wish everyone and your families a very good year ahead in 2019.
Mrs Melinder Goh
