  • School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos

    St Margaret's Primary School was founded in 1842 by Mrs Maria Dyer, a missionary of the London Missionary Society. It is the oldest girls' school in Singapore and the Far East. Today, even as the school aims to equip her pupils with skills and competencies for the global economy of the 21st century, this will be done based on the foundation of the school vision, mission and values. The school believes that it will achieve its goals through nurturing girls of character, striving for excellence in academic and non-academic areas, building competent staff and developing strong partnership with our key stakeholders and the larger community.

    The school places a priority on staff development and staff engagement, and aims to be a vibrant Professional Learning Community. Multiple platforms have been put in place to facilitate professional development and sharing, and conversation with staff.

    The St. Margaret's Ex-Students Association (SMESA) was officially registered on 19 December 1961. It serves to strengthen ties among our ex-students and between past and present pupils of the school. In 2004, the Youth Wing was formed to enable the ex-students of the school to maintain contact with the school by joining the Alumni activities on an informal basis. Annually, SMESA organizes the St Margaret's Day Dinner, which brings together all ex-students of the St Margaret's family.

    The St. Margaret's Parents Teachers Association (PTA) was registered on 24 December 1980 and continues to provide strong support to the school. It organizes and supports various school programmes, one of which is its annual Green Dot Event. This event aims to bring together the families represented in the school for a time of bonding.

    Chapel of Christ the King supports the school by running the spiritual programme of the school. They help to reinforce the values promoted by the school through sharing of bible stories, camps and other recess activities.
