Home > Our School > Principal’s Message
2021 is a special year for Lianhua Primary School as we will be celebrating our 75th Anniversary. Over
the past 75 years, Lianhua (then known as Lian Wah Public School) has grown from a school that had operated on the borrowed premises of Nanyang Girls’ High School and Chinese High School to its current location in Bukit Batok, with panoramic views of Little Guilin. The school has come a long way, distinguishing itself holistically in the areas of academics, sports and character-building.
I am honoured and proud to join the Lianhua family and endeavor to build on the good work done by past School Leaders and teachers to continue the next chapter of our Lianhua story by reflecting on our past, celebrating the present and focusing on the future.
The school’s motto, Play ∙ Passion ∙ Purpose resonates deeply and encapsulates the beliefs and ideals of the school’s pursuit of our mission to bring out the best in every student for a better nation. Albert Einstein once commented that “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of minds to think.” He posited that the value of a school is to create the capacity of integrated understanding and the ability to use the knowledge learned intelligently. These are fundamental aspects of the ethos of education that Lianhua continues to aspire towards as we look to the future.
This journey would not be easy. It takes courage, passion, boldness and perseverance. However, I am confident that we will be able to achieve our mission with the support of all our stakeholders, whose clear commitment is to achieve the highest possible aspirations for our students. I am truly honored to work alongside such an outstanding community who is dedicated to the achievement and success of the students of Lianhua.
May 2021 be a joyful and fulfilling year for all. Keep healthy, keep safe.
Miss Pamela Kiew
