    Every child matters at OPSS. The school's philosophy of the '6 Everys' guides the thinking and actions of all staff in providing quality and meaningful school experiences through our school-based curriculum:Every Student of OPSS deserves to be my Student;Every Student of OPSS deserves my Best;Every Student of OPSS deserves to be given Opportunities;Every Second a Teaching Moment;Every Inch a Learning Space;Every Interaction an Edifying Experience. We aspire to grow and nurture our students into wholesome, contributing and thinking individuals with robust character and a quest for knowledge and learning. Holistic education@OPSS focuses on developing the whole child in the different domains as encapsulated in PIES-MA (Physical,Intellectual,Emotional, Social,Moral and Aesthetics). Underpinning it is the building of strong Teacher-Student Relationships (TSR) and the "Discipline with Care" approach. OPSS is known in the neighbourhood as a school with good discipline and caring teachers. The 4As (Attendance,Appearance,Assignment,Attentiveness) are emphasised to maintain a positive learning climate and the culture of care is evident in our whole-school approach to character development. The school also works closely with parents and stakeholders, leveraging on strategic partnerships, to provide a fulfilling and joyful educational experience for our students.
