School Crest, School Song, The Temasek Creed

 

 

tmsSchoolCrest.jpg

Our School Crest has strong historical references. Its main colour – Navy Blue – represents the sea which nostalgically recalls Singapore’s original name ‘Temasek’ (meaning Seaport Town) and from which our alma mater aptly derives her name.

The sea also symbolises the vastness of knowledge which the school imparts and obtains with integrity. The supporting colours are red and gold. Red represents brotherhood and team spirit while gold is symbolic of prosperity and progress.

The motif depicts two lions holding a radiantly burning torch. The lions signify the nation and the school. The torch illuminates the nation’s and school’s ethos of a well-balanced curriculum of education and sports.

School Song

Lyrics: Mr Koh Beng Thiam
Music: Mr Paul Seow

We feel for our families
We strive for our school
We share with our community
We stand by our nation.
For we are Temasekians
For we are Temasekians
For we are Temasekians
And we care.

Our families shall be honoured
Our school shall be proud
Our community shall be one
Our nation shall be free.
For we are Temasekians
For we are Temasekians
For we are Temasekians
And we care.
