Temasek Primary School

Temasek Primary is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year. It is indeed an honour to be in a school that has grown in strength and capacity since it started its journey in enriching the lives of students, staff and stakeholders 40 years ago.

For the many students and staff that have grown with the school, the culture of care and excellence has played a big part in enabling us to grow in strength and commitment as we work as a team, living up to the school’s motto, ‘Forward Together’.

The school has had and continues to have many platforms to develop Temasekians into responsible, versatile and future-ready citizens. We aim to provide a holistic education where emphasis is placed not only on academic excellence, but also on nurturing our young to live out our core values, Perseverance, Responsibility, Integrity, Open-Mindedness, Respect and Humility (PRIORity). The acronym signals the priority we place on values. We believe values and good dispositions are fundamental for our students to grow into individuals who are better able to establish future-focused attitudes to learning, critical if they are to be able to become lifelong learners. We also hope to ignite passion in our students to strive for excellence in their learning journey, while all the time staying rooted in values.

Temasek Primary is proud to have maintained our high academic standards, thanks to the dedication of our teachers, the rigour of our academic programmes which have been enhanced by effective and engaging methodologies, and the strong collaboration with parents and the community to bring out the best in our students. Indeed, Temasekians, both past and present, have accomplished much in different arenas.

I urge all Temasekians to continue practising the 7th Habit ‘Sharpen the Saw’ by taking time to ‘renew’ our body, heart, mind and spirit. As we work hard to achieve our goals and persevere in the face of challenges, we must also find joy in learning and embrace the ‘Learn for Life’ attitude. I am confident that, with tenacity and a positive attitude, Temasekians will continue to enjoy many fulfilling years and achieve much in our academic and co-curricular domains.

Lastly, as part of the 40th Anniversary celebrations, we have planned a host of events ranging from Temasek Homecoming Dinner, a combined Carnival with Temasek Secondary to a School Musical. We hope you will be able to join us in our celebrations.

Forward Together, Temasek!
