Dear Parents & Guardians,
A Happy New Year 2018 to you and your family! We trust that you have had a restful year-end break and we welcome Anthonians back to school for the new academic year. We also welcome our new cohort of Primary 1 Anthonians who have joined us this year. I am certain that 2018 will bring with it continued blessings, as we strive to provide all Anthonians with abundant opportunities to learn and develop holistically.
In St. Anthony’s Primary School, we strive to provide an education that prepares Anthonians to be equipped for both the opportunities and challenges that will come their way. The mission of the school is to enable our children to learn how to learn and to learn how to live, to become persons of integrity and persons for others in God’s service. This mission articulates our desire for Anthonians to learn and develop holistically, anchored in sound values, as well as to strive to be the best that they can be and be willing to step forward to serve, thereby making the world around them a better place, especially for the last, the lost and the least.
This year, rather than focus on extrinsic motivators to do the right things and to do things well, I would like to challenge all Anthonians to have a deeper purpose for doing what we do, well, and thus be the best that we can be. I invite you, parents, staf and pupils, to take this journey of “striving to be the best that we can be” in 2018.
We look forward to an exciting year and wish you a Blessed New Year 2018 !
Ms Cecilia Lim
