Head of Department (HOD)
Year Head for Upper Primary
As a Year Head, I believe in the importance of developing a child holistically. Children learn best when their emotional and social needs are well taken care of. A child will flourish if he or she is positive, engaged and finds joy and meaning in his or her learning. As educators, we must look at every child as individuals with different kinds of strengths and talents.
They must be given the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, caring and supportive environment.

"Values aren’t buses. They’re not supposed to get you anywhere. They’re supposed to define who you are." Jennifer Crusie
My vision: All Westviewans, after having gone through the six years of West View journey, would emerge as self-regulated and motivated individuals who strive to attain excellence in all their endeavours. They are also equipped with a moral compass to guide them through life’s uncertainties with confidence.
I believe all children will find meaning in learning Maths if they have the opportunity to apply what they have learnt. As an educator, it is of utmost importance for me to provide opportunities for children to explore, create, investigate and solve real-life Maths problem. These opportunities will inherently open up possibilities to move beyond expectations about what children can do and learn.
Mdm Efizah Bte SamatHOD Science
I believe that the way to learn Science is to engage the curious minds among our children in their quest for continuous learning. In this school, we provide our pupils with the experiences which stimulate their curiosity about the things around and their environment and build on their interest. As children investigate and explore, they will question and wonder, and through discovery, they learn.

HOD Physical Education & Co-Curricular Activities
I believe that high-quality PE and CCA Programmes enable pupils to develop a wide range of soft skills and values, which is critical to help them achieve success in life. I envisage pupils of West View Primary to be active individuals who adopt healthy lifestyle, passionate in what they pursue and confident in leading others.

HOD ICT/School Staff Developer
To quote William G Spady, I believe that "All students can learn and succeed, but not on the same day in the same way". In this new digital age, meaningful and pervasive use of technology not only can help to engage children to learn at their own pace but also provide opportunities for learning to be more customised and collaborative.
HOD Character and Citizenship Education
Education is not solely academic. Through rich holistic experiences in school, a child learns to be an individual of sound moral character, vital for ethical behavior ; and performance character, critical when striving for excellence. Both aspects of character instilled in the child can create a resilient individual who is empathetic and takes action to contribute back to the community.
Mrs Charmian New
HOD Aesthetics & LLP
Every child is unique with talents waiting to be discovered and developed. Opportunities are provided through Aesthetics and CCAs for pupils to discover and develop their talents. Through the learning process, pupils develop resilience and are equipped with life skills and values; becoming passionate learners and confident leaders. With encouragement and support, every child is capable of producing his/her very own masterpiece.
Mr Matthew Chua
In this globalised and delicate world, it is important that the pupils are equipped with the skills to be affective communicators who seek to understand and be understood.

"The science of today is the technology of tomorrow." Edward Teller
Through Science education, I believe that pupils will develop the scientific habits of mind and use scientific inquiry to explore new things.
When pupils are curious and question about the things around them, they learn to tackle unfamiliar situations effectively, gather evidence independently and generate their own conclusions and explanations. Through such experiences and over time, they will become the problem solvers of the future.

SH Malay Language & Tamil Language
Children are motivated to better themselves in a supportive and encouraging environment. Every child should have a taste of success and no achievement is too small to be mentioned. I believe teachers should be innovative in their teaching approaches and constantly hone their craft to excite pupils and better engage them in their learning. Through the use of Malay literature, I seek to ignite hope, develop confidence and help pupils to love Malay Language.
SH Physical Education
I aim to help pupils build a strong foundation for a healthy and active life. I want my pupils learn and strive to master fundamental movement skills and concepts. With the attainment of these fundamentals, I hope to see them transiting to more challenging movement activities. I want to encourage my pupils to develop good health practices in terms of nutrition, exercise and hygiene. With these practices, they will adopt a healthy lifestyle through regular and purposeful health-enhancing physical activities.

SH Student Management
As stated in DI ZI GUI (见人恶 即内省 有则改 无加警)," when you see others do wrong, immediately reflect upon yourself. If you have made the same mistake, correct it. If not, be extra cautious not to make the same mistake." Discipline is not about blind obedience, it's having the right mentality and responsible behaviour. It is the development of the child - head, heart and hand.

LH English Language (Lower Primary)
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
Children learn best from experience. I believe that hands-on experiences create a crucial foundation for young children. They learn by doing, using their senses, exploring their environment of people, things, places and events. This active engagement promotes greater mental agility that helps them to retain new learning and integrate it with what they already know.
| || Mrs Karin Tan-Chan Yee TuangSH High Progress Learners|
I believe that within every child lies a greater potential waiting to be unleashed. To quote Maria Montessori, “Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world”. As educators, we walk this journey of discovery together with our pupils, guiding them towards the direction to unleash their greater potential, preparing them to our best for the future world.

Mr Yew Kheng Cheow
I believe that every pupil can learn Mathematics. Although achievement levels will vary drastically from pupil to pupil, my pupils achieve self-worth in the subject through small successes that lead them on to attempt more challenging work in the subject. My sense of achievement comes from seeing my pupils not only persevering with the subject but also helping their peers to overcome their fears about learning Mathematics.
ST Learning Needs
To me, there is one special quality that a pupil can develop that will guarantee greater success, accomplishment and happiness in life - the quality of self-discipline. I believe that self-discipline will strengthen every other discipline in a pupil's life. The act of self-discipline can be as simple as having a habit of checking the timetable for the next schooling day or even brushing teeth at night. Over time, the student will soon learn to be able to discipline himself to accomplish even larger things, like being more resilient and working harder to push himself to greater heights.
Mrs Esther Chan-Lim Siew HiangST Mathematics
All pupils can learn Mathematics and they need to believe it. To me, helping pupils to first develop a love for learning Mathematics is important. When a pupil begins to love learning Mathematics, he/she will be willing to put in more effort and time to raise his/her competency. In turn, he/she will see an improvement in his/her performance and will be motivated to put in more effort to learn more about the subject. It will be a virtual cycle.
