Principal's Message



A warm welcome to our primary 1 pupils and their parents to the TPS family!



In Tampines Primary School, we strive to provide our pupils with a holistic education consistent with our strategic direction to be A Quality School of Learning and Character.  In order to achieve our vision of An Icon of Excellence: To Value and Be Valued, learning, relationship and the individual are prized based on the core theory of success that quality relationship will yield quality results and every individual is a STAR – having strengths, talents, aspirations and has the value of Resilience to overcome challenges as he/she journeys towards Excellence.

Partnership and Innovation are leveraged upon to provide a vibrant learning environment for our pupils. As a school in the community and the community is in the school, our pupils are provided with diverse opportunities to play a significant role in active citizenry through Values In Action projects with the local community. The interaction and close partnership forged with the school and local community have given rise to a more caring culture. The Annual Stakeholders Strategic Planning session bears testimony of the trust that the school places on its partners and values their different perspectives. The pupils are constantly reminded of their privilege as a member of the first community school in Singapore; that each and every day they must strive to be a blessing and a contribution to the community.

What the school stands for is encapsulated in the quote from our former Minister for Education, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam.


“We have to stay close to our vision and values in providing an all round education to our young, even where the gains are not easily measured.”
