Rulang Primary’s vision—A Gallery of Scholars, A Vibrant Community of
Wholesome Individuals—outlines the school’s aspiration in engaging our
stakeholders and the community to build an innovative and forward-looking
learning environment to support our pupils to succeed to the best of their
individual ability in the different educational domains. The school strongly
believes that partnerships should be responsive to partner’s needs and
supportive towards the realization of our strategic plan.
Rulang continuously seeks to promote and sustain collaboration with our
partners by building on a culture of team synergy and trust. Integral to
sustaining a culture of collaboration is open communication between school and
our partners. The school’s philosophy, vision, mission, core values and
strategic plan are communicated to our partners and their feedback sought
through multiple channels. This has helped forge a better understanding and gain
constructive feedback for school improvements.
Our partnership with the School Advisory Committee and Alumni Association has
been sustained for more than a decade. They have been instrumental in
contributing to the school’s progress from a village school to a school of
excellence. Besides providing scholarships and bursaries to motivate our pupils’
strive for excellence, they provide financial and expertise support for our
leadership, citizenship and talent development programmes. In addition, they
work with school leaders to create new opportunities for pupils to realize their
potential in academic subjects, robotics, sports, visual and performing arts
annually. Through their selfless contribution back to their alma mater and
society, they have served as good role models for our pupils to emulate.
The Parents Support Group plays a pivotal role in engaging our existing
parents in programmes such as Career Education Seminars which helped our pupils
understand the demands and expectations of various careers. The school
collaborates with the MCYS to launch the School Family Education (SFE) Programme
to promote family well-being and parenting effectiveness. This has enabled
strong bonds to be forged within the families as well as with the school.
The school involves the local community in educating our pupils. Since 2008,
as part of the sensory trail project during our annual walkathon, we have
partnered JTC to create opportunities for our pupils to enhance the Garden of
Fragrance in the Chinese Garden by constructing information labels on the
plants. The plan to launch an information website on heritage trees found in the
Chinese Garden is in the pipeline. As a Centre of Excellence in Robotics, Rulang
also established sustained partnership with foreign universities and schools
since 2006, to carry out research projects on how robotics can enhance teaching
and learning. We share the findings with other schools through action research
papers and workshops. Rulang has also partnered LEGO Education and Science
Centre to co-host the LEGO conference annually since 2008.
The school values our partners and creates platforms to recognize them.
Besides notes of appreciation, partners are also presented with plaques by
Ministers who graced our Annual Speech and Prize Presentation Day and Alumni
