Principal's Foreword

Dear Parents 

Welcome to the 2018 school year.   I am excited to welcome back our staff, students and parents for the new school year and a warm welcome to our 2018 P1 cohort.   

As you step into the school on the first school day of 2018, I invite you to view the wonderful and magical butterflies that are flitting around joyously at our Butterfly Garden adjacent to the Jogging Track.

The butterfly garden evokes a sense of joy, peace, magic, excitement and reminds one that without embracing changes in our lives – we cannot evolve. 

Our theme for 2018 is ‘Joy of Learning’.    At Yumin Primary school we strive to create a supportive and inclusive environment that brings back the joy in learning; where students are encouraged to explore their potential and achieve their personal best in all aspects of school life.  High standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance, co-curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school.  Students will be challenged and engaged through authentic learning opportunities that inspire them to develop into Confident and Effective Communicators, Critical and Creative Thinkers, Caring and Gracious Citizens well prepared to thrive in the 21st century. PMessage01.JPG

We want to inspire our students to be like Savanna Lorpu Karmue who is 11 years old but is already an author, social entrepreneur, reformer, activist, and possibly a great cardiologist in the future.  She’s currently working on an app that will make it easier for moms and families to shop for “Happy Heart- approved food.” 

We can all take inspiration from Savanna’s effort – encourage your child to be curious, to ask questions and remind them that they too can make a difference!  We believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of all of our students.  There are numerous volunteer opportunities in which we welcome you to become involved.  Working in partnership with our network of parents, alumni and other stakeholders we have been able to sustain our efforts in grooming our students in becoming future ready individuals equipped with right values and 21st century competencies.

Our journey towards excellence will continue and we look forward to delivering a student-centric, values-driven education to all our students.   I look forward to partnering with you to make 2018 a joyous and successful year for our students. 

Warmest regards
