Principal’s Message 2018
Dear members of the SMB community
Welcome to a new and exciting year at school. As always, the dawn of a new year brings with it opportunities for us to renew our sense of mission and to re-engage with all the important things we want to achieve with our students.
In this message, I would like to urge all students to take concrete actions to be ‘The Best Me’, which can be achieved through getting the best out of our schooling experiences.
How do we ensure that we get the best out of our schooling experiences? Here are some concrete steps we can take:
- Understand What you are Learning – make connections between ideas and make connections to life
- Understand How to Learn – reflect on learning strategies, make your own notes, and pen down questions, thoughts, or ideas as your learning stimulates your mind
- Develop a Study Habit – to deepen your understanding of content and concepts
- Widen your learning – learn beyond textbooks and learn beyond school
- Apply your Learning – practise deeply and widely
- Embrace Technology for Learning – it opens up windows to learning and presents opportunities for value creation
- Lead yourself with Morals, Goals, Purpose, and a sense of Mission
- Lead others competently based on a foundation of Respect & Trust
- Learn to work in Teams
- Serve the Community and Nation
- Appreciate and Serve Singapore
- Be an Environment Ambassador
The staff are committed to help our students Learn, Lead, and Serve, and in partnership with Parents, we can enable our students to be ‘The Best Me’. We will continue to innovate in our approaches to engage and empower students so that we are true to our mission.
I would like to urge all partners to work together to ensure that our students participate fully in school. As all members of the SMB community continue to work together to ensure the best schooling experiences for our students, we will all more deeply love our school and contribute to its further growth.
Wishing everyone in the SMB Community an excellent 2018!
Mr Jaswant Singh
