It is my privilege to join the school and carry on the good work of outgoing Principal Mrs Loh Meng Har, who has retired.  I have more than 20 years’ experience in education, with the past eight years as a school leader.  Prior to my posting to Kranji Primary, I had spent 5 enriching years helming Jing Shan Primary School in Ang Mo Kio.  I am blessed to be well-supported by a full leadership team of three Vice-Principals in Kranji – two Vice-Principals (Education) Mr Simon Gan and Miss Marion Tay, as well as a Vice-Principal (Administration), Mdm Neu Siew Lay.

Kranji Primary School has a huge campus with the latest facilities, the latter a result of the upgrading works that was completed in June 2018.  The setting up of an MOE Kindergarten@Kranji in 2019, the first such kindergarten in Choa Chu Kang, potentially allows both our kindergarten segment and primary school segment to collaborate on programmes and activities, as well as to share facilities.  Our pupils’ experience in Kranji will be even more enriched as a result of this co-location.  Supporting this is the setting up of the Student Care and Kindergarten Care Centres, all in 2019.  The brand new facilities are matched with highly qualified staff, including a full team of experienced key personnel and dedicated teachers, some of whom have been with the school since it started over twenty years ago.

In Kranji, we believe that Every Child Matters and Deserves the Best.  To do so, we commit to our school mission of Nurturing Minds, Engaging Hearts, Building Character.  Our holistic programme seeks to provide an authentic learning experience for our pupils that prepares them to be future-ready citizens of tomorrow.  To this end, our emphasis on laying a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy, as well as our cultivation of the 21st century competencies of communication, critical thinking, collaboration and confidence are key in the delivery of the Kranji Experience.  All these are anchored on a strong values education programme that emphasises character and citizenship.  In Kranji, our school values of Compassion to Care, Perseverance to Pursue, Responsibility to Serve and Integrity to Uphold are infused in our total curriculum.  In particular, our Learning for Life Programme “Developing Champions in Life through Sports” adopts a whole-school approach to develop Kranjian Champions and build their character through sports.

As you can see, the school aims to deliver a holistic education anchored on values and centred around your child.  We thank all parents of our pupils for giving Kranji Primary School the privilege of educating your child alongside you.  We cannot do this alone without your close support at home.  In line with our school motto Knowledge, Practice, Success, we look forward to partnering you to build a strong foundation (Knowledge) and cultivate essential skills (Practice) that would position your child to be ready for the future (Success).
