 We thank the teachers and staff of PLMGS (Primary and Secondary) for their dedicated support and collaboration in all these undertakings.

Above all, we give thanks to God for His grace and favour. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever. His faithfulness will continue through all generations (Psalm 100:5)

PL Testifies March 19, 2016

Testifies

PL Testifies was a call to all old girls of the school to ‘Come Home for Chapel’. Those who were present were able to testify that the afternoon was a time well-spent in the warmth of our familiar chapel service. The curtains of memories were rolled back in a video presentation where former and current PL-Lites testified what chapel meant to them and how it had impacted their lives today. The original cast from PL’s musical “For God So Loved" also gave a soulful rendition of two songs from the musical.  Former PL-Lites, Ms Chia Yong Yong and Ms Madeline Yan gave testimony of God's faithfulness in their lives. Finally, our frequent speaker at many of PL’s chapel services, Pastor Edmund Chan, shared and invited all to ‘come home’ to a closer walk with Jesus.

PL Musical - Created For His Glory July 1 and 2, 2016

Teachers and students in the school put in gruelling hours during the June holidays to put up a musical titled “Created For His Glory”. Showcased in the school’s Agape Concert Hall, the performance demonstrated the students’ faithfulness and gratitude to God for blessing all the generations of students throughout the century.
It was a reminder of the importance of the principles PL always inculcates in her students: always remember to go back to God and keep Him close throughout your life journey.
 

PL Writes month of August

The month of August brought the school back to walking down memory lane for the girls and the staff. In line with PL Writes, PL(Sec) launched her newly -refurbished Library, PL Booktique. This library was refurbished by an old girl who wanted to give back to the school for all the school had done for her during her growing up years. The PL (Sec) girls reflected on how special they felt our school was to them when they journeyed together through the centennial celebrations events that were held from January to July this year.

With focus on the theme ‘Thankful’ in Our School Values, H.E.A.R.T., the pupils in the primary school unleashed their creativity in the month of August. Through the art and craft of writing, each pupil mined her memory, used her imagination, observed her outer world and applied her creative thinking ability to express her gratitude towards either our country with reference to National Day or our school with reference to PL100.

FDS

The PLMGS Museum was officially reopened this morning by 10 PL-Lites and teachers from different generations during the Founder’s Day Thanksgiving Service in school.  The museum is set up to explore and understand the rich culture and heritage that our school is built upon. The museum has been renovated and updated to house our own collection of PLMGS artifacts, representing generations of girls who have passed through our sheltering walls.

The museum is a place where stories of God's faithfulness and the hard work of our pioneers are told and retold to all who enter. May their hearts be encouraged and lives uplifted through their visit to the Museum.

The Time Capsule, which has been sealed since October 1987, was also opened. Treasured items kept within since 1987 were taken out. These included the title deed of the land the school sits on, then-Principal Mrs Winnie Tan’s vision for PL in 2016, a prayer written by then-Chaplain Pastor Leslie Quahe, and locks and keys from our old Boundary Road premises.

Following that, new items were placed in the Time Capsule. This time capsule will be opened 30 years' time, in 2046.
