It is my privilege to write this message as the new Principal of Concord Primary School. My name is Tan Siew Tiong and this is my 27th year in the education service. My teaching career started in Nanyang Primary School and I had served several other schools before my appointment as a principal in 2009. I have served as principal of East Coast Primary School and Bendemeer Primary School before taking on my new appointment. As I joined the Concord family, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the former principals of the school for laying a good foundation for the school. I will continue to work closely with the School Management Committee, teachers and stakeholders to build on this solid foundation and chart the future direction for the school.
In Concord, we believe that every child can learn and achieve if given the right support and environment. It is with this belief that we seek to provide a holistic education, which encompasses both character development and academic excellence coupled with varied learning opportunities for our pupils to explore and to discover their aspirations and talents. Our vision is for every pupil to graduate from the school with Caring Hearts, Enriched Minds and Determined Spirits. To steer us towards our vision, we have envisaged in our school’s mission of wanting to ‘nurture Concordians with character and passion for learning to face life’s challenges. While we keep our vision in sight and having our mission as our guide, we will strive to do our level best to nurture in our pupils a sense of curiosity about the world around them, to cultivate in them a deep sense of joy and responsibility for their own learning. Importantly, we must also foster in our Concordians strong moral values to serve as a guiding light in their quest for knowledge and skills.
Together with my colleagues, we will continue to explore ways to improve our teaching, our approaches, and our programmes to serve the learning needs of our Concordian. We will do our level best to engage all our Partners in Education as we strive to strengthen this home-school partnership. On this note, we seek your continual support and collaboration as we work together to provide a holistic education for your child, believing that our Concordians will be enriched with exciting learning experiences and achievements.
Together as a Concord family, we can soar to greater heights!
