Dear Parents & Guardians,
2018 has been another exciting and fulfilling year for us at St. Anthony’s Primary School (SAPS).
Anthonians have continued to benefit from the many academic and co-curricular programmes in the school and beyond. At the heart of these programmes is our mission 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.
At SAPS, we continue to strive to provide a balanced and well-rounded education that prepares Anthonians to be equipped for both the opportunities and challenges that will come their way. Our 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. We continue to challenge all Anthonians to have a deeper purpose for doing what they do, well, and thus be the best that they can be.
As mentioned in my message earlier this year, the theme that we have adopted for the year is ‘Be the Best that You Can Be’. Anthonians have been thinking through this theme with their teachers and putting into practice little and bigger ways to be the best that they can be in all areas of their lives. This includes the daily decisions that they make as well as groups of Anthonians who have come together to plan and organise Values in Action (VIA) projects to reach out to the community, including the elderly. I am heartened that many Anthonians have been able to do their part in being the best that they can be, including being blessings to others and making our world a better place.
We would like to thank God for His continued blessings on the school and for blessing us with dedicated staff, as well as supportive and caring parents who continue to collaborate with us to bring out the best in our young Anthonians. Our Anthonians have continued to do well in many areas including their CCAs and some glimpses of these are captured in our Anthonian Yearbook 2018.
Our P6 Anthonians have completed their PSLE and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all their teachers for journeying with them and all parents for their support. As our P6 Anthonians complete their primary school journey, and head towards the next stage of their educational pursuit, we hope that they will continue to build on the strong foundation that has been laid, and excel in the next chapter of their lives in the secondary schools. We hope that these Anthonians will also treasure their experience in SAPS, and keep in mind the spirit of appreciation and gratitude for the support and opportunities they have received from their parents and teachers.
The school year would be coming to a close in 2 weeks’ time and we wish all our Anthonians and their families a restful year-end break and God’s continued blessings!
Ms Cecilia Lim
