Message From Dean
To learn, To lead, To love
Warmest greetings from Raffles Christian School – Kebun Jeruk.
I am delighted to be part of the family at the Raffles Christian Group of Schools serving as your new Dean. My professional background is rooted in education, leadership and change management. For the past 20 years, I have worked in private education as a leader, program coordinator, lecturer, coach and mentor. I am also a member of Toastmasters International and served as the District Director (2016-2017) in District 87 (Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia). I believe that quality education is definitely attainable with willing hearts and minds
In addition to my professional achievement, my greatest accomplishment is in my family. I am a loving wife to my supportive husband, Alex, mother to three amazing boys, Aaron (22), Isaac (20), Ethan (18) and a step mother to Adrian (35). As a mother, I work towards building confidence and providing the avenue for their growth in their respective areas of strength. With my experience, I will be working closely with my team and you (as parents) to provide the best learning experience in our school.
Our school community has dedicated and talented staff committed to doing what is best for your child/ children. We offer a holistic and international education that focuses on developing and nurturing every child to be future leaders with sterling character.
Using an inclusive approach that works closely with parents and the community, the school inculcate values of C.H.R..I.S.T which stand for Compassion, Honesty, Reverent (Respectful), Involvement, Service and Tenacity.
While we place a particular emphasis on academic success, we also ensure every child is provided with opportunities to develop a broad range of interdisciplinary skills and competencies through our co-curriculum activities. Our students regularly participate in competitions and the yearly staging of a musical across all levels as part of building the character and confidence in every child.
In ensuring the best learning experience that your child will have with us, our academic team is fully equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge in terms of classroom management, counseling and teaching pedagogy. Our academic team regularly attends training and workshops which are relevant to their scope of work and upholds the attitude of lifelong learning in their teaching career and journey.
My gratitude to all our parents, who have faith with us. We believe that parents play the most important role in moulding the future of children and your consistent support empowers us to do even more.
Once again, I am honoured and humbled to serve as your new Dean and I am looking forward to meeting our children, teachers, parents and community members.
It is written in the scriptures in Isaiah 40:30, “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.”
Together with our stakeholders, willing hearts and minds, I believe we can achieve greatness. May we continue to instill the need to rely on God’s everlasting, never-ending love now and forever more.
My door is always open to you, and I sincerely welcome your input and support. I am excited about all that we will be accomplishing together for our children and look forward to celebrating collective success this school year.
Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Saviour, and my hope is in you all day long. (Psalm 25:5)
