Philosophy, culture, and ethos in the classroom:
The Townsville Primary School believes in a child’s whole development. The school has five targeted student objectives for every Townsville growing up: a courteous pupil, a self-directed learner, a creative thinker, a responsible citizen, and a resilient leader, all guided by our school vision of “Leaders of Character, Learners for Life.”
The iCARe3 (Integrity our Foundation; Compassion our Key; Ardent for Singapore, our Home; Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience, our Strengths) are not only taught openly by instructors and interwoven throughout our school programs.
The school has a Care, Collaboration, and Excellence culture. Pupils put the principles of Self-Care, Others-Care, School-Care, and Community-Care into reality.

Using the 3Es Approach, we give children Exposure, Experience, and Excellence in physical activities, outdoor education, visual arts, and performing arts through our curriculum and programs.

Arts of the Visual
Visual Arts for Life, part of the Learning for Life Programme (LLP) in Townsville, provides our students with real-life experience learning to help them develop their: character and values, sense of empathy, the pleasure of learning, and good attitudes, self-expression, and interpersonal skills. Master, local, and student artists are all introduced to the students.
Students are further involved through art-making conversations, writing their artist statements/reflections, self/peer art critique, and the art-making process. Students can also participate in the implementation of product design in the actual world.
“Every Child Is A Leader,” we believe at Townsville Primary School. The LiT Program gets built on two main provisions: ‘Training’ and ‘Opportunities,’ which embodies our school goal of “Leaders of Character, Learners for Life.”
The school’s LiT Program aims to build leadership abilities in students on a continuum suited to their age level, starting with self-leadership, class leadership, school leadership, and community leadership.
