Message from the Principal

This year, the school adopts the theme “Every Student, Endless Possibilities”, which was expounded during the school 107th Speech Day.  We would like to recognize every Yuying student as unique and individual, with many opportunities to have their potential developed to the fullest.  This is done in every facet of secondary school life in Yuying, both in academic and co-curricular programmes. 

With the strong and unwavering support from our School Management Committee, our students benefit from school-based Scholarships, Academic Awards, CCA Awards and Good Progress Awards. Even our Alumni get support in the form of Alumni Bursary Awards to help them further their education in higher institutions.

We are now into the 4th year of implementing our MOE-approved Applied Learning Programme (ALP) and Learning for Life Programme (LLP). Our ALP is to foster ‘Critical and Inventive Thinking through Design Thinking for Enterprising Learners’. Besides Vertical Farming as a key signature for Instruction Programme infusion, we have also provided various opportunities to apply their knowledge and thinking skills to the real world. In tandem with the LLP, which aims to energise our students to be proactive `social change-makers’ in the community, students get to be involved in projects such as Care for the Environment, Care for the Elderly and Give Back to Community.  It is a platform for our students to learn, internalize and demonstrate the school values, leadership skills and citizenship competencies. I am confident that both our ALP and LLP programmes will continue to evolve to become a unique learning experience at Yuying.

Our CCAs continue to provide the learning experiences beyond the academic to foster the development of people skills, collaboration and leadership skills. Through their involvement in the CCAs, students express values like diligence, team spirit and resilience to achieve excellence in their group projects and inter-school competitions. It is heartening to note that many of our CCAs have been able to compete at high standards and display sportsmanship and bring honour to the school.

We will continue to strive to achieve excellence in whatever we do and to produce ‘Enterprising Learners for Excellence’ as in our School Vision. I strongly believe Yuying will be able to continue to grow from strength to strength, providing a unique and holistic school experience for our students.
