Ms Evelyn Lee
Vice-Principal (Admin)

Ms Evelyn Lee graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Studies (Human Resource Management) from NTU in 1998. She has been with the Ministry of Education (MOE) for more than a decade including 2 stints in schools as an Admin Manager. Much of her career was spent at the MOE HQ, specialising in Human Resource work. She was Vice-Principal (Admin) at Wellington Primary School before joining Northoaks Primary.

She believes that every child can learn and will be able to excel in their respective area when given the right opportunities and guidance. While academic excellence is important, it is equally important to note that there is a lot of learning beyond the classrooms which explains the need for our children to be exposed to as many co-curriculum activities as possible, so as to realise their fullest potential and evoke the passion in them. As a mother as well as a fellow educator, she firmly believes that our current school landscape provides the system and rigour to enable all our children to be able to succeed in life while not forgetting to be active contributors to society.
