Goodbye 2016. Welcome 2017.
We had a very good year in 2016. There were many occasions to celebrate, and I am thankful for the support and help from everyone.
Henry Park is a good school. Every year during the Primary 1 Registration, it is indeed heartening to witness the strong demand for a place in the school. To the staff and I, this is very encouraging. At the same time, we are reminded that we have an important duty to perform, which is to provide a conducive learning environment for all our students.
I am excited about 2017. Henry Park turns 40 this year. One staff member remarked that 40 years in a person's lifetime is an important milestone and it is the same for a school. We want to take time to pause for a while to reflect on how the school has been.
We will celebrate the school's 40th Anniversary on 7 April. Henry Park was officially opened on 7 April 1977, exactly 40 years ago. In the morning, we have a special programme to celebrate with our present students. In the evening, our plan is to invite alumni of various ages, former staff and teachers, former school leaders, parents and partners like West 1 Cluster schools and the Japanese School (Singapore).
As the seventh principal, I am glad that the first six principals have done great work, and charted a path of growth and opportunities. Henry Park teachers form a special team, and we have endearing students who aspire to be upright and responsible leaders.
What works for us? The school has sound work processes, and we have great students to work with. The support from everyone, especially our parents, goes a long way. The school therefore looks to the future with confidence. If you would like to learn more about the work we do, please let me know.
Thank you for visiting our web site.
