Dendrobium Temasek President's Challenge

In his official Facebook page, former President Dr Tony Tan expressed his thanks to Temasek Primary School:

Received a new hybrid orchid - Dendrobium Temasek President’s Challenge - created by Temasek Primary School students, a strong supporter and donor of President’s Challenge. I would like to thank them for this lovely gift, and for their support for the President’s Challenge. 

Temasek Primary School students shared that the purple colour represents royalty, respect, admiration and dignity while the white lines represent people from all walks of life, regardless of culture, religion or family background, coming together to contribute their time, talent and resources to help those who are less fortunate in the community.

Pupil's Our Pride

Temasek's Very Own Budding Actress - ' Little Emily '

Our talented P5 pupil, Melissa Hecker, acted in the musical, Emily, as the little Emily. A few of our pupils and their family members as well as the Form Teacher, Miss Jill Wong, attended the musical on 21 May 2016. Her classmates with encouragement from Miss Jill Wong, made a special card with words of encouragement and well wishes for her. One of the pupils presented the card and flowers to her after the musical. Melissa was surprised by the act of her classmates. Her mother, too, was touched by the gesture of Melissa’s classmates and thanked the pupils and Form Teacher. Melissa’s classmates have demonstrated kindness through their kind words and acts.
