Home > About QSS > Principal's Message
Welcome to Queensway Secondary School! I am glad that you chose for your child/ward to join our school. We are very happy to have the opportunity to work with you to groom and develop your child/ward to become the young gentleman/lady that you aspire for him/her to be.
First, allow me to introduce myself. I am Mr Peter Tan, an educator with over 30 years of experience with stints in schools and MOE Headquarters. I spent the last 18 years as Principal of ACS (Junior) and ACS (Barker Road). I have a passion in working with young people, helping them to uncover and discover their talents so that they can fulfil their goals in life. Over the years of Principalship, I have always found it a joy to work with my colleagues together with the parents/guardians of our students to work towards the best that we can help our students strive towards.
As an educator of many years, the secondary school years are often the most pivotal in shaping the direction of life. This makes secondary schooling experience very interesting and exciting and I look forward, together with my colleagues, to journey through the years ahead with your child/ward.
You will hear me say repeatedly over the years your child/ward is with us, that his/her PSLE score DOES NOT determine his/her future or destiny. My colleagues and I have witnessed many, many students who have proven this statement a truism. Work with us and I am confident that your child/ward will fulfil the destiny of his/her life. The school's motto is "Success through Diligence", together we will achieve this.
