Warmest Greetings from Bendemeer Primary!

Bendemeer Primary School (BPS) prides itself in being a gracious community of passionate learners and confident leaders. We are pleased to welcome you to be part of this Bendemeer experience. The Bendemeer experience encompasses a learning journey that is beyond the classrooms - where our students learn to be creative and innovative thinkers who focus on applying their learning to authentic real world problems as well as through leadership opportunities. While we are committed to providing our students with rich learning experiences, BPS recognises the importance of values in our daily lives. We will continue to stress the importance of being a person of good character through the myriad of programmes and lessons that promote values education.

2020 was a very different year and our students have shown great resilience. We want to congratulate our 2020 P6 cohort who has graduated and moved on to secondary school. Our students have shown great improvement in their PSLE results and we are pleased to note that the majority of students were posted to schools that were their first choice.

The school has embarked on Positive Education since the beginning of 2020 and in 2021 we will be continuing with the emphasis on building positive relationships, a culture of care and the growth mindset. We want our students to build positive relationships with their friends and teachers, take positive actions in their learning by being self-directed learners and use positive language to affirm one another. Our teachers have also been engaging in professional development in the different areas to continue to support your child holistically.

2021 will also see our students in the new school uniform which will complete our phased approach in the newly merged school. We thank our students, staff and parents for your support in co-creating the design of the uniform which has shown tremendous demand the minute it went on sale in December 2020.

Our school’s operations team has also worked tirelessly during the holidays to ensure that the school is all spruced up, clean, safe and ready for our students. In addition, we will have a refurbished library by February 2021. The newly renovated library will continue to encourage our students to discover the wonder and joy of reading. Our classes have also been renamed to reflect our school values to imbibe in our students the values on what it means to be a student of Bendemeer Primary.

I am confident, with the continued support of our valued stakeholders, the unwavering dedication of the staff in Bendemeer and our commitment to provide the Bendemeer experience, our students will truly live up to being a gracious community of passionate learners and confident leaders.

Once again, I look forward to another year of meaningful partnerships with all our stakeholders as we work hand in hand to provide the best learning experiences for our children.

Your partner-in-education,

Mrs Tan-Lim Kim Gek
