Dr Chew Yu Gee
A paediatrician with a special interest in childhood and adolescent development, Dr Chew’s innate love for children was a major catalyst for the formation of our school back in 2012.
Pr Vinson Simbaku
At first glance, Pr Vinson may seem like an unassuming demure man. One could never be so wrong. Our senior students line up to meet him for questions on chemistry, mathematics, theology and other advance subjects. He is our go to man when things break or fail or when student’s questions wrack our minds.
Since joining Lighthouse Academy, Kris Ward has consistently brought a passion and dedication with them each day. You will find your place right away in any class taught by Kris Ward.

Pr Robert, along with Pr Jerome were sponsored to study theology in the Philippines. Pr Robert is a charismatic young pastor, working in our intermediary class, where he regularly inspires and connects with our young ones there. Empathetic to the experiences of our students, he is a favourite go to for advice and council.
Pr Jerome Raj
Pr Jerome, along with Pr Robert were sponsored to study theology in the Philippines. He is currently involved in our special needs program, where his innovative methods and intimate connection with children are fully brought to bear.

Mr Richard Anderson
Head of Primary
Living with much dissatisfaction in his previous accountancy job, Mr Richard could not pass the opportunity to work with us and teach. Now he wakes up everyday, praying that it is not a dream. He has discovered a passion, teaching and counselling our young students.
Mr Wallace Tan
Our discipline master will be found on the prowl around school with a stoic cold face. It is all part of the task of ensuring our students behave. “Only then can learning happen” he says. Mr Wallace confesses that he has learnt to put up a hard front. Speaking to him in a more casual setting will reveal a talkative, fun-loving person.
