Dear Parents / Guardian,
Welcome to the new academic year. I saw your children today and almost all of them are excited about the journey ahead. Little surprise then, as their newly appointed principal, I am filled with a mixture of excitement and expectancy too. I see the New Year as an opportunity for new beginning and, I think, the new is always invigorating; it forces us to see and think afresh.
To briefly introduce myself; I started my teaching career in Si Ling Secondary School and was there for 10 years before being appointed as Vice Principal to Marymount Convent, South View Primary and finally to Boon Lay Garden Primary upon my return from post graduate studies in 2008. In 2009, I was appointed principal of Eunos Primary and was there for seven years before receiving my current posting to Geylang Methodist School (Primary) in October last year.
To me, it is both a privilege and a calling to serve in a mission school, to be part of this big, happy and caring Family. Even in the short time that I have been here, I can see that my teachers are deeply committed and effective, very focused and determined on providing the best education possible for our students to achieve their personal best. In GMS(P), we believe that in all that we do, the child remains the centre of the purpose and will ensure that each child has a motivating and safe learning experience throughout his/ her stay with us.
I would also like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the good work of my predecessor, Mrs Rina Liang. She has, over the last eight years, put many important and necessary processes in place to ensure success. Her dedication, commitment and leadership are evident to all. I feel honoured to be taking over the rein from her when the school is in a strong position to move forward. We thank her for her many contributions to bring GMS(P) to where it is today and will definitely build on these achievements.
Finally, on behalf of the entire school staff, again let me welcome you to the new academic year. I am excited about working with your children and thank you for trusting us with their education. GMS(P) is a place of joyful learning, and I pray that your child will find enormous satisfaction and growth with us this coming year. I look forward to meeting many of you personally and to learn more of what we can do together to make GMS(P) an even better school for your children.
Mrs Jennifer Choy
