Overall Feedback

  • Parents’ Testimonials
    • “My son is enjoying school very much. His teachers are stern but yet caring. They have more boys in the school because the nearby girls’ schools (Haig and CHIJ) have absorbed quite a number of females but the teachers do seem to know how to deal with the boys. They are strong in their sports CCAs and I believe that students build their character through their CCAs. They will learn how to work in teams and how to be more resilience and to excel in what they do.”
  • Students’ Testimonials
    • “tkps is a very fun school. however , we are not all play and no work. in pri 2 , there was a day where we could brig our pets to school , and we would have activities about pets and learning about them and there was a pet talent show. these activities really made our school life not boring. all my ex classmates from tkps say so too. we all love tkps and we actually wish we could go back to study there again. while I was in tkps , I loved school and I lived going to class to learn new things. the speed of the teachers teaching wasn’t very fast , and not too slow. I’m a slow learner , but I coped fine with my subjects.”
