Blessed Semester 2, 2021!
We thank you (our beloved readers) for your interest in checking out our school website and in knowing KCPPS via this platform! Thank you also for reading my message.
We are now in the second half of 2021. The Covid-19 pandemic may well change our world and our global outlook, but it has also taught us about how education need to change to be able to better prepare our young learners for what the future might hold. We will continue to grow our capabilities and capacities as a school and help our learners to navigate confidently in this unprecedented learning environment.
We ensure that our students’ holistic learning outcomes are not compromised. We remain student-centric. We have clear and frequent communication with our parents to chart the students’ learning progress and help every child succeed. Our students continue to excel, from academic to non-academic domains. However, we know that collectively, we want the students to excel in life. We will continue to love them and care for them, help them change their limiting beliefs and give them the learning experiences to learn and practice their knowledge, skills and values.
This year, we celebrated our 97th Founders’ Day with the theme: From Perseverance to Passion.
Theme Verse: “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair” (2 Corinthians 4:8 NIV).
Our theme this year recognizes God’s faithfulness and grace in a challenging season. We are blessed to be able to come together to celebrate with our pupils and staff, and to look forward to the future. Although we could not have a large-scale celebration, we carried out meaningful class-based activities, as it was important for our Kuo Chuan family to have a meaningful time of reflecting on our rich legacy, appreciate our founders’ contributions, and to remember with gratitude God’s favour upon our school over the years. We hope to also encourage and inspire hope and confidence in God especially in this period of Covid-19 pandemic. As we celebrate our founders’ sense of passion and purpose to bring God’s truth to generations of KCPPians regardless of the challenges, may it give us a renewed sense of steadfast faith, hope and love.
I am certain that as a Kuo Chuan community, we will recover stronger with a renewed sense of purpose and responsibility. So long as we continue to stay united and resilient, we will find new meaning in our collaborative endeavours, and we will emerge a better school system and a better nation!
To God be the Glory!
