Nan Hua Primary School is a grand dame of 99 this year!  Our success story strongly builds on the basis that it takes ‘a village to raise a child’.  We are grateful to our past and present stakeholders such as the members of our School Management Committee, Alumni Association, Parent Support Group and parents for their unwavering support.  We are also thankful to the past and present school leaders, teachers and non-teaching staff who have laboured tirelessly to nurture each child holistically.  Today, Nan Hua Primary School distinguishes herself to be a school with rich traditions, a culture of excellence and one that prepares our children for the 21st century. 

Every child who enters Nan Hua Primary School is valuable and special in his/her own way.  The school creates many opportunities and experiences to make education works for every child.  The NHPS Thinking Programme is designed to develop an array of competencies in the MOE’s 21st Century Framework- Civic Literacy, Global Awareness and Cross-Cultural Skills; Critical and Inventive Thinking; and Communication, Collaboration and Information Skills through integrated lessons and distinctive learning experiences.   These holistic and innovative programmes are closely aligned with the school’s focus areas of developing “Thinking Minds, Engaged Hearts, Happy and Healthy Learners”.  Our aim is to nurture our pupils to become happy, confident and responsible individuals who are useful citizens of tomorrow. 

While academic results are important, character development plays an even more important part in the development of our pupils.  In this Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Uncertain world we are living in, our school motto of Loyalty, Filial Piety, Humanity, Love, Courtesy, Righteousness, Integrity and Sense of Shame will act as their internal compass to guide them to do the right things, even after they leave the school.

Exciting times are ahead as we prepare to celebrate Nan Hua Primary School’s 100th Anniversary in 2017.  This will be a time to unite all teachers and students, past and present, to celebrate this joyous occasion.  This will also be a time for all of us to continue the legacy of Nan Hua!

 

今年,南华小学已经建校99周年了。南华小学的成功是大家共同努力的结果。我们非常感谢董事会、学友会、家长会对我校工作的大力支持;我们也感谢历届校领导、老师、以及校工们为孩子们的全面成长而不辞辛苦地无私奉献。如今,南华小学已成为了一所独具特色、拥有丰富的传统、追求卓越的文化的学府,培养南华学子们成为21世纪的优秀人才。

每位南华学子都是各具特色的璞玉。南华小学因材施教,为每位学子提供成长的机会和学习的体验,使其得到最好的教育。我校的“思维发展计划”通过综合性的课程,创设与众不同的学习体验,帮助南华学子们掌握教育部“21世纪人才优胜力培养框架“中提出的一系列能力:公民能力、全球意识和跨文化技能、批判性和创意思维,以及信息和沟通技能。这些全面、有创意的课程与南华小学培育具备“擅于思考的头脑,乐于参与的心,快乐和健康的学习者”的重点是紧密相连的。我们的目标是把我们的学生培养成快乐、自信、负责任的公民,未来为新加坡做出应有的贡献。

在我们努力提高学生们的学业成绩的同时,我们更加重视学生们的品格教育。在这充满变数、不稳定的复杂社会中,我们的校训“忠孝仁爱、礼义廉耻”则是深藏在学生心中的指南针,引导学生在即使离开了学校之后,也能继续做出正确的选择。

我们现在正在积极筹备即将到来的南华小学百年校庆。这会使现在和曾经在南华生活过的教师和学生团结在一起,共同见证这欢乐的时刻。我们也将继往开来,将南华精神传承下去。
