Principal's Message


Jeffrey Aw.JPGDear Visitor,

Welcome to the Compassvale Primary School website.

If you are the parent of an enrolled student, thank you for your support and partnership in 2016. I am sure you will join me in thanking Mr Chua Choon Guan and Mr Perry Tan for their stewardship of the school in the last seven years. The new school leadership team comprises Ms Tan Kwee Foon, Mrs Judy Lim, Mr Fong Kok Wai and yours truly. As we steer CVPS into its next chapter, we look forward to your continued support and collaboration in the development of our young ones.

For a start, we hope you can help us by ensuring that your child has a permanent place to study at home that is away from distractions. Help us develop the habit for your child so that he/ she gets used to sitting there for a short period of time daily either to do homework or to read on days that work has not been assigned. This could also be where the daily packing of the school bag can take place so that only the necessary books are brought to school.

In line with developing good habits, we would also like to seek your support to ensure that your child goes to bed at a regular time daily and gets enough sleep. Research has shown that children who do not get adequate rest will find it difficult to focus in class as their short-term memory can be affected and this impacts the learning process.

Finally, we would also like your child to have breakfast before their lessons, this could take place at home before coming to school or in our canteen if you have a habit of dropping him/her off early. Hunger can be distracting for young children and prevents them from fully engaging in activities.

If you are interested to join our Parent Support Group (PSG) as a volunteer, do get in touch with the committee through this online form - https://goo.gl/5qRn06.

If you are a prospective parent, we hope you will find Compassvale Primary a suitable match for your child. If you are looking for a school that focuses on learning how to learn and learning how to live through joyful learning experiences, come meet us at our open house and experience it for yourself. You can find the schedule for our key events in our school calendar in this website. We look forward to meeting you.
