Dear Parents and Guardians,
As espoused in our school’s mission “Growing our Hearts and Minds”, our school aims to nurture every Yuhualite to care, share and contribute and we also want to encourage the pupils to learn, think and innovate. Our school’s strategic goals are also in line with the desired outcomes of education embodied by the Singapore Education System –
A Confident Person who has a strong sense of right and wrong, is adaptable and resilient, knows himself/herself, is discerning in judgement, thinks independently and critically, and communicates effectively.
A Self Directed Learner who takes responsibility for his own learning, who questions, reflects and perseveres in the pursuit of learning.
An Active Contributor who is able to work effectively in teams, exercises initiative, takes calculated risks, is innovative and strives for excellence; and
A Concerned Citizen who is rooted to Singapore, has a strong civic consciousness, is informed, and takes an active role in bettering the lives of others around them.
This year, our school will continue to focus on nurturing the 21st century competencies (21 CC) and social emotional (SE) competencies in our pupils. As a school, we will continue to balance the school experience of our pupils so that they grow holistically as a thinking individual grounded in our six core values: Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Integrity, Care and Harmony (R3ICH). The R3ICH values are critical in shaping the hearts and minds of our pupils. While they develop their mind in intellectual learning and in thinking, it is also the school’s mission to grow their hearts to be responsible, caring and respectful individuals who stand upright and be resilient. We seek the kind support of our parents in reinforcing these values with your child at home. Our pupils would be given opportunities and platforms in school to learn important life skills.For example, our teachers will emphasise the first two values of Respect and Responsibility. It is a good start for our pupils to know that they must take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour. They should also learn to be respectful towards others in their words and actions.
Our efforts to build a student-centric values-driven education require a strong partnership with our stakeholders, particularly, our parents and guardians who play a critical role in our children’s education. We would like to express our gratitude and sincere thanks to you for your strong support over the past few years. We look forward to greater partnership with all our parents and guardians and we seek your continual support as we continue working together to provide the best holistic education learning experiences for our pupils.
Mrs See Lai Kwan
