Welcome to the STGSS Webpage. As Principal of STGSS, I am delighted to introduce you to the school. Please look through the website for more detailed information. We are always available to answer any questions you may want to know more about STGSS.
Our school motto was created from the three core values of Love, Wisdom and Vigour.
Love – We train our students to respect one another and to care for others.
Wisdom – To most people, wisdom may be the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement; the quality of being wise. I want to dive deeper to ‘wisdom’ and define what it means. Aristotle said, ‘Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom’. This quote reminds our students to reflect upon their strengths, abilities and natural gifts. As they do so, they will develop their potential to the fullest.
Vigour – We train our students to become resilient, both physically and mentally. We nourish their effort, energy and enthusiasm to commitment and responsibility.
To nurture these three core values, we strive to create and maintain a supportive and caring environment for all STGSS students. With this support, students can develop their positive attitudes towards their lives and their community.
We are at an exciting time in the development of STGSS with a new three-year plan for 2019-2022. One of our major concerns is to develop our students to be independent learners. We will accomplish this through reading across the curricula, the integration of STEM learning also across the curricular and the implementation of project learning to enrich students’ learning experiences. A second major concern aims to instill positive values for whole person development through different learning experiences. Students will enjoy opportunities to improve, discover, create and make links across subject areas. They will also appreciate skills being taught explicitly in the classroom, and practical skills like problem-solving, collaboration and critical thinking.
In 2019, we will introduce two Life-wide Learning Days in this academic year to provide students with unique and special learning experiences. Experiential learning enables students to achieve certain learning goals, helps them reach the aims of whole-person development, and instils in them life-long learning capabilities that are needed in our ever-changing society.
I am proud to be part of the STGSS community, and I treasure the opportunities to build relationships with our students, alumni, parents and teachers. My door is open to start conversations across the school for the sake of nurturing our younger generations.
I look forward to meeting you at every event and together creating hand-in-hand the best educational environment for our students at STGSS.
