Innova believes that a strong foundation is essential for success, ao they strive to develop persons of exceptional character by instilling the ISTAR principles in all Innovians. They also that all Innovians should have the knowledge and abilities necessary to flourish in the languages and sciences. These serve as the foundation for further learning, intellectual exploration, and, ultimately, contributing to society’s higher benefit. They understand the importance of balancing a solid core curriculum with a co-curricular program that develops the child holistically while also providing social chances. 

Innovians arrive at Innova Primary School with a glint in their eyes, a jolt in their step, and a spring in their step, fueled by their courage and willingness to dream big. More than just a school, Innova is a community. 

Innova Alumni Club History

The Innova Alumni Club (IAC) was founded in 2010 to bring old boys and girls of Innova Primary School together as partners to build ties and school spirit. Former instructor Ms. Elaine Tan and her students constituted the temporary committee. Mr. O Kah How (2010 graduate) and many of his peers organized a committee for ad hoc operations. But it wasn’t until 2016 that his appointment as the first alumni Chairman gets accepted. They led the temporary EXCO till 2018, along with Mr. Chui How Yee (a 2012 graduate), to establish and lay a basis for the alumni.

Since October 2018, Mr. Chui How Yee has served as Chairman, ushering in a new era for the JAC. As a consultant, Mr. O Kah Hao continues to assist the JAC. The EXCO strives to keep the school and JAC’s relationship strong.
