Hai Sing Catholic School is a school of choice in Pasir Ris and beyond, as it draws students of calibre from the vicinity and beyond, with a significant number of students hailing from Punggol, Seng Kang and Tampines, while some students travel from even farther afield. We have welcomed 280 students to our Secondary 1 cohort of 2017.
I am honoured and humbled to be called to serve as Hai Sing Catholic School's 11th Principal. It is a school with rich heritage, established in 1959 and 58 years old in 2017. As I take on the mantle of steward of this school, I am conscious of its rich heritage since its days as Hai Sing Girls' High School sited at Upper Serangoon under the leadership of the FMM sisters, including Sister Maria Ng who is still serving on the School Management Committee. The school subsequently moved to its current site at Pasir Ris and became Hai Sing High School, a co-ed school, under the able stewardship of the late Mrs Lydia Wan. Later, it became known as Hai Sing Catholic School in 1999.
Hai Sing Catholic School is a school of possibilities where each of our students can fulfil their dreams. Our School’s vision is: Rooted in truth and charity, nurtured for academic, aesthetic, physical, social and moral growth.
The school has done well across these domains over the years, and I intend to continue this rich tradition, working together and supporting our capable and deeply committed staff in building up its distinctive programmes and unique Catholic ethos.
The HAIsians I have met are energetic, courteous and caring. They are self-motivated and seek excellence in their pursuits be they academic, co-curricular or in community outreach. HAIsians have done themselves proud. In addition, we must also not forget education's role as a social leveller and continue to develop students who are persons for others and who will make society better bit by bit by having a positive impact on others' lives.
As we approach the school's 60th anniversary in a couple of years' time, it is opportune to tap into this rich heritage and bring together the alumni from over the years. We are building an alumni register, and alumni may email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, class/year and contact details to receive updates about school events and happenings.
To conclude, I would like to acknowledge that good people are at the heart of everything we do in school. Our committed teachers form Professional Learning Communities based on staff-initiated projects on Curriculum Design, Pedagogy and Assessment. Our teachers are embarking on ‘Flipped Classroom’, ‘Google Apps’ and ‘Google Earth’ in their lessons. They establish partnerships with organisations such as the Ministry of Social and Family Development and the Pasir Ris Family Services Centre to implement programmes for the community.
We would like to thank our School Management Committee, our Parents and our Alumni for supporting our HaiSian Brand of Education. Moving forward, we will continue to build the heritage of this school and strengthen connections with our Parents and Alumni.
