  • School Vision

    A future-ready community of passionate learners anchored in values and striving for excellence to make a positive difference.

  • School Mission

    Inspiring and empowering our learners to be their best for self and others through a supportive environment and innovative & effective teaching-learning practices.

  • School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos

    At Teck Whye Primary, we believe that all children can learn and want to learn and that teaching needs to cater to different progress levels and be anchored on meaningful engagement. Every child can be inspired and empowered to achieve within a supportive environment anchored on safety and care. Teachers, as role models, impart sound values, build character and inspire their students to learn by building quality relationships with and among students. To meet future challenges, our students must extend their learning beyond the acquisition of knowledge and skills, and apply and use their learning in meaningful ways.

    Established since 1959, Teck Whye Primary envisions our learners to achieve the following outcomes and exercise the related values in their daily lives:

    Confident Communicators who Engage with Respect

    Healthy Individuals who eXercise Responsibility

    Adaptive Leaders who Collaborate with Integrity

    Model Citizens who Encourage through Compassion

    Passionate Learners who Learn with Resilience

    The rallying call is for CHAMPs who embrace and strive for the value of Excellence.

    To realise these outcomes, the school provides a strong grounding in the various subjects while placing emphasis on the (i) acquisition of 21st century competencies, (ii) development of effective communication skills and an understanding of media use and production, (iii) inculcation of values and social emotional development, (iv) understanding of the importance of National Education and (v) development of leadership competencies.

    The school, therefore, whilst encouraging our students to do well academically, also places a very strong emphasis on character and holistic development. We believe that this would provide a firm foundation for our students as they pursue their secondary education but more importantly as they live their lives.
