Notes From Principal

Dear students,

Welcome back to school after a fulfilling and well-deserved break! I trust you had spent your time wisely with your family and friends. First and foremost, a warm welcome to the Secondary 1 students who have joined our family! This will be another exciting year for all as we make the school vision "A School of Choice, A Community of Dynamic Learners" a reality with your active involvement and the support of your caring and inspiring teachers. It is my hope that each of you values the importance of learning and enjoys the WGS education experience.

 

 WGS education, guided by the school vision, mission and values, was conceptualised in 2010 and aims to prepare each Woodgrover to be engaged and informed citizens in the 21st century who are caring, knowledgeable, imaginative, innovative and productive. To achieve that, we act on the principles of WGS Education which are categorised into Head, Heart, Skills and Feet to better reflect the holistic development of each Woodgrover in our care:


  • Responsible, disciplined and dynamic learners (Head);
  • Compassionate individuals with the passion to serve (Heart);
  • Confident, adaptable and innovative individuals prepared for the challenges ahead (Skills);
  • Resilient Citizens with Integrity (Feet)


2012 has been a year of bountiful harvest in terms of achievements. We have attained many accomplishments which bears testimony to the school's commitment in providing quality education for you. For instance, your seniors from the 2011 graduating cohort did us proud by performing above our expectations in the 'O' and 'N' level examinations. Harnessing on our niche area on Performing Arts, we held another successful production of the biennial Aesthetic Night. The event was filled with exhilarating performances by our performing arts groups and showcased the talents of the rest of our Woodgrovers. Our uniformed groups also achieved another milestone as all three units achieved a gold award each in their annual proficiency assessment. Our strong emphasis on environmental awareness and conversation was affirmed through the awarding of the MOE Niche Status in Environmental Education 2012. These achievements speak of the success of our strong partnerships with all the stakeholders in WGS.

 

In 2013, leveraging on the strengths and expertise of our partners, we will continue to provide you with opportunities to excel while you journey with us in WGS. Do take time to build ties of friendship with the ones you are with you in the journey and continue to grow from strength to strength. Though you may be confronted with unexpected or difficult situations, your peers, seniors (alumni), parents and teachers will always be around to help you through these situations. Therefore, always dream big and be ready to face any challenges that come your way. 

 

Let's greet the new year with a resounding cheer and endeavour to achieve our goals together!

 

Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
