A Symbol of Trust and Maritime Excellence

Our Identity

Our brand new logo is a striking representation of our values and commitment. Inspired by the Chinese character “” (tuo), meaning “to hold in the palm, to rely, to entrust” as found in the word 托马斯 (Thomas), our logo encapsulates the essence of trust and reliability. This emblem not only reflects our dedication to holding our students’ needs in the highest regard but also signifies the reliance our stakeholders can place in our services.


Furthermore, our logo subtly pays homage to Singapore’s thriving maritime sector. Crafted with precision, it elegantly transforms into the silhouette of a container ship, an icon synonymous with the bustling maritime activities that define this great nation. This thoughtful integration serves as a nod to our roots and underscores our deep connection to the maritime industry.
