President’s Welcome Message for Orientation 2021


NAFA-President

Dear Students,

Welcome to NAFA family! We are delighted to have you join our vibrant campus. Over the next three years, we encourage you to open your mind and heart as you embark on an exciting and fulfilling learning journey with us.

The beginning of tertiary education marks one of the most important transitions of your life. What awaits you is an adventure of discovery and enriching experiences. During your time here, we would like you to adopt our core values of Passion, Care and achieving Excellence. These values will guide you in making perceptive decisions along your chosen paths.

As we enter this new decade of growth, NAFA is poised to become an arts institution with a global standing. Earlier this year, the Academy announced three new degrees with the world-leading university for art and design undergraduate programmes, the University of the Arts London. We are also working towards an alliance with LASALLE College of the Arts to form Singapore’s first university of the arts.

These moves are of great affirmation to NAFA and will open new worlds and endless possibilities. When opportunities arise, we hope that you will embrace the NAFA spirit of Creativity, Exploration and Resilience by being curious, courageous to try out different experiences and adopt a never-say-die attitude.

We also urge you to practise gratitude by taking time to reflect upon the things you are thankful for. This will help you stay positive and resilient, especially in times of uncertainties.

Stay focused, take bold strides onward and you can maximise your potential. We will be with you every step of the way. We look forward to walking this new journey with you.

TAN-SOH WAI LAN
PRESIDENT
