School Values Tagline:
RISE with LOVE


Character First

At New Town Primary School, we put values and character education at the core of what we do. Our school values – Resilience, Integrity, Self-discipline & Love – are encapsulated in the tagline “RISe with Love”. The values underpin our character and leadership development programmes to nurture our students to become confident persons, self-directed learners, active contributors and concerned citizens. 

Our students wear the school values proudly on the school T-shirt.



As part of the school’s Character Education, each term addresses a specific school value as a central theme. The value of Resilience and Integrity will be the themes in Term 1 and 2 respectively.

Expanding domains from self to the world

The development of children and adolescents takes place in the context of an ecosystem of relationships (Bronfenbrenner, 1975).

At NTPS, we encourage students to put values into practice within the context of real-life situations in the family, school, community and environment, nation and the world.
