School Leaders

I am honoured to be part of the Punggol View family and to serve as the Principal of Punggol View Primary School – a school that strives to develop our students into Confident Learners, Active Citizens.  

Under the stewardship of the founding principal, Mr Kelvin Tay, PGVP has progressed steadily in nurturing students into children who are healthy, joyful and anchored in our school values. I look forward to continuing the good work that has been put in place by him.  Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself.

Prior to assuming the role of Principal in PGVP on 15 Dec 2017, I was the Principal of Fengshan Primary School. I began my career in education at St. Patrick’s school, moved on to head the Science Department in Dunman Secondary school in 2002 and served as its Vice Principal from 2007 to 2009.  A firm believer of lifelong learning, I pursued Master In Education programme with University of Western Australia in 2005 and subsequently embarking on my PhD studies with University of Leicester in 2009. Both these studies were done part time while holding on to the leadership position.  I strongly believe the challenge of balancing work and studies has made me a stronger and perhaps more understanding leader. 

I am delighted to have the opportunity of working with the PGVP staff and parents to provide a strong values-based, holistic education for every child in Punggol View Primary. To me, every child is special and very precious. As encapsulated in the Starfish story, we want to bring out the best in every child, each according to his/her strength, talent and ability. As we strive to realize this shared vision, we know the success of this endeavour is only possible through the commitment and collaborative efforts of our students, staff, parents and partners. 

I look forward to working alongside all of you to bring out the best in our students and to take PGVP to the next level.

I started out as a teacher in Chua Chu Kang Secondary School in 1996 and was the Head of Department for Science in Pasir Ris Crest Secondary School in 2000. I went on to serve as a Project Officer in the Schools Division at Ministry of Education and subsequently, Vice-Principal, Rosyth School. 

Subsequently, I was awarded the postgraduate scholarship to pursue Masters at the Teachers’ College, Columbia University, New York City, USA. Upon returning from my studies, I was appointed as Vice-Principal, Tanjong Katong Primary School. In Apr 2012, I assumed the role of Vice-Principal Designate, Punggol View Primary School. 

I envisage that every pupil of Punggol View Primary would be able to set his/her own goals beyond the academic area, and strive hard to  excel and realise his/her full potential. I would like to see every pupil  develop sound character and leadership qualities so as to better prepare him/her for the future. I believe in working very closely with parents and would like to use every communication channel to reach out to the parents so that they would better understand the educational issues facing the school and build strong relationships that will support their child’s learning, development and achievement in his/her primary school years.

There is a widely quoted proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child”, which beautifully illustrates the intertwined relationships and partnerships required to develop our children holistically.

I believe Punggol View Primary School is one of that special “village” where our caring teachers, dedicated support staff and engaged parents and partners work closely to help nurture our children as they grow and glow into persons of character and become good and useful citizens of tomorrow. By so doing, we want our children to contribute positively and stay rooted as active citizens for SG100.

Joining this “village” in January 2016, I am humbled by the dedication and calibre of the staff we have on board. Through their encouragement and exemplary enthusiasm, I look forward to leveraging upon my past experience in business, leadership and management as a Chief Financial Controller with both Global and Singapore based MNCs, to make an indelible impact on our children’s growth and development. As a team, we strive to help unlock and realise our students’ intrinsic potential and help them find faith in their future through this early journey of their lives with us, whilst they are still children.
