Joint Message from Chairman and Principal & CEO

It is little wonder that “pandemic” was declared “Word of the Year 2020” by dictionary companies, Merriam-Webster and Dictionary.com. COVID-19 has disrupted the world we are familiar with, catapulting us into a world of new challenges and opportunities. At Temasek Polytechnic (TP), we have learned to embrace this much-touted “new normal”. Our Chairman, Mr Lee Kok Choy, and Principal & CEO, Mr Peter Lam, reflect on an unprecedented financial year ending 31 March 2021.
