Principal's Message

Welcome to Marymount Convent School's Website

Greetings from Marymount Convent School!



2017 is indeed a very special year for all of us in MCS! We are blessed with a newly renovated school campus with many new facilities that are all ready to enhance our already exciting curriculum! 

 

Thanksgiving!



First and foremost, I would like to thank our wonderful MCS family, which includes all our parents, our Good Shepherd Sisters, and the School Management Board, for the very warm welcome! I am really excited to be included in the significant journey of growing our girls, and lifting to greater heights the name of Marymount Convent, together with you!



We have received many significant blessings throughout 2016, but allow me to recount some major ones, and may our hearts and spirits be encouraged!



1. The BIG Move

We were wonderfully blessed with beautiful weather and very efficient movers. Together with our dedicated and committed staff, we were able to move back into our campus smoothly, with much excitement simply because this is home truly!

 

2. The NEW Campus

We are deeply grateful to the Good Shepherd Sisters, who generously donated a significant portion of the land, without which, it would not be possible for us to add 3 brand new blocks, where the Indoor Sports Hall, Gymnasium, several special rooms and Student Care Centre, are now housed.

 

3. 60th Anniversary

2017 marks the 60th Anniversary of Marymount Convent School! What a milestone for us as we marched into the year, enjoying the new and full facilities, which we know, can better serve the needs and development of our girls! There will be many exciting and meaningful programmes planned throughout the year as we take time to celebrate and recount the endless blessings that made us who we are today!

 

As recipients of such blessings, how then should we respond? We urged our girls therefore, to be “Good learners with a Grateful heart”.



Good Learners



Joyful Learning

Whenever I interact with our girls, one of the biggest highlights for them about coming to school is the joy of learning. Different ones would share with me their favourite subjects ( a full suite of them!) and how much fun they are having in class. The credit totally belongs to our teachers, AEDs and staff, for creating the wonderful learning environment in MCS, one that is inviting and fun! 



Zealous Learning

In the midst of having fun, we want our girls to continue to be curious, and the school will continue to create opportunities for them to inquire, and to fan the flame of exploration and investigation in them. Independent of the specific subjects that they are learning, they will be passionate learners who will dig deeper and ask more questions.

Indeed, this zeal in learning will be imbued into them, so that they become lifelong learners throughout their lives. Our MCS girls will be good learners!

 

Grateful Hearts



“Gratitude is the memory of the heart” {St Mary Euphrasia}



Our Foundress, St Mary Euphrasia aptly put, that we must constantly count our blessings, recalling deep in our hearts all the goodness poured into our lives. We will, as a school, be embarking on our Gratitude movement. Throughout the year, our girls will be telling you more about it! We will be teaching and role modelling for our girls, what it means to express our thanks to those around us, explicitly and appreciatively. Research has shown that a person who decidedly and consistently shows gratitude, has a very high “happiness” index. Even more importantly, through the building of their character with emphasis on gratitude, we want to cultivate in our girls the virtue to look beyond self, and to have a magnanimous heart.

 

We believe that through the above process of cultivating in our girls the good and correct attitude in learning, and a grateful heart, we will mould them to become “Ladies of compassion, eloquence and intellect with God as our shepherd”.

 

At December 2016's Primary One Orientation, many parents shared with me your resonance with the school’s vision and mission. My heart is deeply encouraged. I know I can continue to count on your partnership to grow our girls, just like how you have always been partnering with our teachers and the school. I thank you in advance for your unyielding support, your feedback and your generous encouragement, as we embark on our new adventure in 2017!

 

I wish all of us a most fulfilling and meaningful 2017, blessed with the abundant joy of learning, and embraced with bountiful gratitude!

 

With deep gratefulness,



Mrs Allison Lim
