Principal’s Message

Welcome to Tampines Primary School.

Our theme for 2021 is to ‘Know Every Child and Grow Every Child’.

It fittingly encapsulates our aspiration to help every Tampinesian learn, grow and excel.

Since our official founding in 1986 as the first community school in Singapore, we have grown together with the community to become a school of excellence in nurturing life-long learners of good character.

The school has accredited curricular and non-curricular programmes to ensure that each child is advocated for, holistically developed and meaningfully engaged. The school has two recognized signature programmes. The Applied Learning Programme (ALP), ‘ACTitude’ ensures that students learn confidence, creativity, communication skills and values through drama. The annual community theatre production allows students to explore and share perspectives that impact themselves and the world around them, sharing these with their schoolmates, families and the Tampines residents. The new Learning for Life Programme (LLP), ‘Future Ready Citizens – Developing the Community Leader’ aims to develop all students into leaders who will be able to look beyond self to serve others. Using servant leadership principles, we hope to grow our students such that they will be able to show empathy, care and gratitude. Underpinning all these are the refreshed school values of iREAP - integrity, respect, excellence, adaptability and passion.

The new MOE Kindergarten at Tampines Primary warmly welcomes our first cohort of K1 students. The good enrolment figures and the keen interest from parents for next year’s orientation show the continued trust that parents have in the school, making us a school of choice.

My staff and I look forward to you joining us in the journey to realise our vision of being “A Community School of Excellence, Caring Hearts and Creative Minds”.
