Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

It is my honour and blessing to be appointed the Principal of Palm View Primary School
with effect from 17 December 2018. To be an educator is a calling, a mission of love and
care. Educators are in the privileged position to make a difference in the lives of the
students whom come under our charge. Each child is unique, valuable and special, with
his or her gifts and talents. The students all have hopes and dreams for the future and it
is the calling of educators to help each child realise his or her fullest potential.

In Palm View Primary School, we aim to provide each child with a well-balanced, holistic
education which caters to students’ needs in the moral, intellectual, physical, social and
aesthetic domains. In alignment with the recent changes in the educational landscape
over the past few years, we have started to infuse and integrate the Joy of Learning,
Entrepreneurial Dare and the Singapore Spirit into the school’s key learning
programmes. This means that students will be provided with the opportunities to
explore and develop their interests and strengths, engage in deep learning and apply
their learning in real-world contexts to make a difference in their areas of passion. It is
our hope that experiencing the Joy of Learning will lead to deep learning and mastery
and in turn, build the foundation for lifelong learning for our students.

As we develop and mould the future of our nation, it is essential to help our students
grow in character and to instill in them the right values and social-emotional
competencies which will put them in good stead as they find their individual footing and
unique place in life and society. Guiding and supporting students in building a strong
foundation from a young age is the best gift that educators can give to their young

As the popular African proverb goes, “It takes a village to raise a child”. Hence, we look
forward to the strong continued partnership with our parents in order to develop our
students to have Curious Minds, Caring Hearts and Creative Spirits in line with the
school’s vision.

May I take this opportunity to wish you and your children a good year ahead.


Mrs Ming Kum
