Till today, I still miss sitting in Ms Wong’s class, listening to her teach about the monsoon effect.

Dedicated staff at Unity Primary School

— lim teck liang

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude and respect to all the staff in Unity Primary School (UPS). My children have been with the school for some years now and, I've had interactions with various members of the UPS family. Whatever the occasion or event, I've always been impressed by the dedication displayed. I always feel that everyone at UPS genuinely care. On the personal level, the teachers pay attention to students whenever the need arises. I know this to be true not only because my children received such help but also because I've heard of experiences from other parents. If I were to choose a school for my children again, I will still send them to UPS because it is a great school!

It has been four years since my son took his PSLE and he is now being offered a place in one of the polytechnics.

Robert Soma Sundram s / o Mogan

I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Jabbar of Cedar Primary School for all his help and concern. I had initially wanted to register my son to a new school near my new house but we were unable to move over eventually. I had already disposed of his uniforms and cancelled his transport to the school. As my son was in the waiting list in the new school, I did not buy books for him too. After deciding to send my son back to Cedar Primary School, I had to make arrangements again. Upon calling Mr Jabbar, he started to help us with no hesitation with my son’s transport and getting some old uniforms for us first. He would also follow up with us frequently. Mr Jabbar even helped to arrange to send the books to my house. I am grateful for Mr Jabbar’s unconditional help and our family is truly inspired by his proactive and gracious acts.

“Grooming Students into Leaders of Good Character”

Sherlene Lim

My daughter is a Primary Five student in Haig Girls’ School. Over the past few years, I have observed how the school has emphasised not just academic excellence, but also character development. One interesting programme is ‘Gratitude Thursday’. On alternate Thursdays, students are encouraged to pen words of gratitude on a card before handing it to the person they wish to thank. Parents are also encouraged to participate in this effort to show appreciation to people around us. What a great idea to involve parents in showing our children what gratitude is!

As a parent, I am aware that the school leaders care about the well-being of the students and my daughter is in good hands. During the haze period a few months ago, the school also managed the situation very well. I would also like to thank Mrs Constance Loke, Principal of Haig Girls’ School, and her team of teachers for their hard work and sincerity in guiding and grooming students into leaders of character.

“Kind, dedicated and driven teacher”

Ex-student from Christ Church Secondary

I was a student of Mr Eugene Teo Qing Cong of Christ Church Secondary School a few years ago. It was a case of serendipity that I was assigned to his class at the end of Secondary Two. I had planned to enrol in the Triple Science class, but unfortunately, could not meet the grade requirement for Mathematics. Initially, I did not like my class. We were an odd mix, some of us were studious while others were disengaged.

Mr Eugene never gave up on us. In fact, he was the reason why our class formed close-knit bonds. When some of us complained that the classroom was too warm, Mr Teo brought several fans to keep the classroom cool so that we have a conducive learning environment. He also invested in pails, soap and cleaning equipment to keep the class spick and span. Beyond that, one of my classmates who was considered to be rather problematic, managed to turn his life around under the guidance and support of Mr Teo. This classmate came from a dysfunctional family and was disinterested in learning, but Mr Teo managed to transform him. When he could not afford the fees to sit for ‘O’ levels, it was Mr Teo who paid for it. My classmate, once considered a lost cause, is now studying Accountancy at a local polytechnic.

It was Mr Teo’s drive, kindness and dedication that enabled us to dare to dream high. He made us believe we were more than just ordinary kids!

“Thank you Ms Priya for your prompt response and concern”

Winston Choo

I would like to express my appreciation to Ms Priya of Yio Chu Kang Primary School (YCKPS) for her fast response and kind attention given to my daughter. Ms Priya is my daughter’s form teacher in Primary One and she personally responded to my feedback over an incident in school very promptly. I am relieved to know that the incident did not occur in school, but in the day care centre. Although this was the case, Ms Priya did not hesitate to speak to us about the matter. Thank you Ms Priya and YCKPS for your concern and attention.

“Cultivating the Love of Chinese”

Mrs Karen Lim

I would like to express my gratitude to Madam Peng of Marymount Convent School. She taught my daughter from 2014 – 2015 and was an excellent Chinese teacher who has helped to improve my daughter’s mastery of the Chinese language. Madam Peng as willing to put in effort to help her students in the language and cultivate the love of learning in them. Without her dedication and encouragement, my daughter would not have managed to score well and achieve her targets.

Madam Peng has left the school but we would not forget her enthusiasm and passion in teaching. Thank you for going the extra mile to encourage, communicate and ensuring that your students do well. Truly, it is because of you that my daughter learnt to like Chinese language.

“Great Educator, Mentor and Friend”

Derek Woo Wei Yen

We would like to express our gratitude to Mr Lee Wei Loong, my son’s form teacher at Red Swastika School. Mr Lee approached every student as an unique individual with different character and aptitude. My son’s interest in learning increased tremendously after being taught by Mr Lee in Primary Four.

Mr Lee keeps open communication with parents and provides regular feedback to us on the progress of our son. He spends time to conduct extra lessons for students who need extra help. His teaching method encourages thinking, discussion, and he challenges students to do their best. My son’s grades improved tremendously over a year. Mr Lee also goes out of his way to organise class activities to bond his students together. As a result, my son made great friends in school. He also encourages frequent parent-child engagement through fun-filled activities.

Under the caring, dedicated and good leadership of the school’s wonderful teachers, I am humbled, yet happy to share that both of them have graduated from the school with flying colours for their PSLE!

I recalled when I failed to secure a place for my elder daughter during the Phase 3 registration for Primary One, I was utterly disappointed but never give up hope to enrol my children in the school. Throughout their education journey in Rulang Primary, I came across many dedicated, caring and helpful teachers who have taught my children in good faith and with deep passion. They made efforts to update me on the progress of my children and worked hand in hand with me to ensure that my children stayed on track to succeed academically as well as develop individually. I would like to thank Ms Ee Wei Leng, Madam Ong Lay Peng, Madam Leong Yea Ling, Madam Wahetha, Mr Goh Wei Howe and Ms Chea Seok Choo.

Special appreciation to Mr Goh Wei How and Ms Christine Foo for their relentless dedication, patience, personal attention and guidance that helped my daughter improve not just academically, but also in behaviour. With the good help from both Mr Goh and Ms Foo, they worked together with me to help my daughter. It is with their deep concern and “never give up” attitude that made my daughter see light at the end of the tunnel.

Today, both my children have moved on successfully to the next chapter in life. Although my daughter has already graduated from the school, my gratitude still stands and it lies deep in our family. On behalf of my husband and I, we would like to thank the teachers and staff of Rulang Primary School! Your good efforts to nurture our children and the future generation has been recognised!

“Thank you for creating a safe environment for our students!”

Mrs Lee

This year, Ai Tong School moved back to its original site located at Sin Min. My son has been looking forward to moving back to Ai Tong’s original site and all of us were excited on the first day of school. Mr Tan, Principal of Ai Tong School, and his team helped out as traffic wardens in the mornings and during dismissal times to manage the traffic situation. Although there were some hiccups and delays, the resourcefulness of the school, together with other community partners such as LTA, grassroot leaders and Traffic Police, managed to improve the situation. I wish to salute Mr Tan and his team for their endless efforts in creating a safe and conducive environment for the students.

“Deepest appreciation to Nan Chiau High School”

Mrs Ng

I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the following teachers and staff in Nan Chiau High School:

1) Form teachers of 5B, Mr Ng Kok Min, Mr Suresh Supramaniam, Madam Ivy Wong, who are highly dedicated teachers who never gave up on our son, boosting his confidence to believe in himself and helping him achieve his goals.

2) Upper-secondary Year Head, Mr Dalvey Neo and Mrs Cheryl Lo. My son was a rebellious boy but both teachers are always available and willing to listen to our concerns and guide our son well on the right track.

3) >Head-of-Department for Aesthetics, Miss Kong Sook Ming and Senior Teacher, Madam Angie Ngo, who do not confine their duties to merely teaching but chose to show extra care and concern to our son.

4) TSOs who gave their strong moral support and encouragement for my son to learn and strive during Design and Technology lessons.

We would also like to thank the school leaders, in particular Mr Tan Yee Kan, Principal of Nan Chiau High school, for his strong support and commitment. It was a big challenge for our son to be able to take the ‘O’ level examinations under a stressful environment but the school has helped him in overcoming the stress. No words can convey our appreciation to Mr Tay, Vice-Principal of the school, who inspired my son with confidence to work hard for the future. Also, we are thankful to Madam Chow, Vice-Principal, who motivated my son to work hard with the warmth and love extended to him.

We are grateful that the teachers and school staff have done their best to help our son cope with his studies. Their patience and guidance have helped us in immeasurable ways and we deeply appreciate the care they have shown to my son. I hope the school will be able to inspire more students in the future and lead them to brighter paths!

“Dedicated and Fun Teacher”

Valerie Soon

My son is now in P2 at Kong Hwa School. His form teacher, Madam Lynn Liew, gave the class a goodie bag consisting of items with poems and encouraging words written on them. When my son was in P1, she gave us her mobile number and updated us on our son’s progress. She would also send us photos of the class activities. We are blessed that our child has such a dedicated, fun teacher and he looks forward to go to school every day. Thank you Madam Liew!

“Mr Rizal's proactive approach eased my 'first day of school' concerns!”

Tan Li Wen

My son is entering P1 and as we had missed the school orientation, I had a few queries regarding administrative procedures. Mr Rizal Aziz, my son’s form teacher from Cedar Primary School, responded quickly to my queries and took a proactive approach to check that the information was in place before calling me. Appreciate his promptness and proactive attitude which helped in easing both my child and myself on the first day of school. Thank you Mr Rizal!

“Thanks for being a great teacher”

Mrs Rena Chen

As the saying goes: “A good teacher is everything a parent can never be, thanks for being one.”

This is exactly what I would like to convey to my son’s P4 Science teacher, Mrs Soh-Chan Siew Lai of Holy Innocents’ Primary School. She monitors his progress closely and constantly updates us. This has helped my son become more attentive and he has also become more interested in Science.

Thank you, Mrs Soh, for your great support, encouragement and care!

“Thank you for never giving up”

Tan Sijia

To our dearest Madam Cai (蔡老) of Bedok Town Secondary School, I am not sure if she still remembers me but I would like to thank her for everything she has done. I am grateful for her utmost patience and her encouragement towards us although we were not the most obedient students. She did not merely impart knowledge, but also life lessons. Thank you so much for everything!

“Working in Close Partnership with Pei Tong Primary Helped our Child”

Samantha Chew

As the academic year 2015 draws to a close, we wish to thank all teachers in Pei Tong Primary School for providing many happy memories for our son. The teachers have created a conducive and comfortable environment for our son to learn and strive as an individual and your accommodation to cater to his learning difficulties has helped us in immeasurable ways. We are grateful that the school is closely with us, parents, as partners in helping our son cope.

It was a difficult decision to transfer our son out of his previous school but we remembered our first meeting with Mrs Heng Gay Lee, Vice Principal of Pei Tong Primary. To be honest, we had no prior knowledge of the school and was naturally apprehensive. We are thankful that Mrs Heng was reassuring and told us more about the school environment. With the benefit of hindsight, it was definitely the right choice we made. Not only did our son perform academically well, he was able to truly enjoy his primary school days in Pei Tong.

We would like to sincerely applaud Pei Tong Primary, in particular Mr Chan Ta Hoong (his form teacher from Primary Four to Six) for his strong support, commitment and partnership. It is a big achievement for our son to be able to take the PSLE examinations without fear. Our son was also given ample opportunities to participate in various programmes and activities in school. No words can convey our appreciation for everything the school has done to develop as a confident and holistic individual. Pei Tong Primary has certainly lived up to the school motto of nurturing confident and self-directed learners who exhibit social responsibility and character.

“Madam Hor - An Inspiration and Encourager”

Mrs Pang

I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Madam Hor Puay Li, my children’s Higher Chinese teacher from Hougang Primary School. When my son was did not do well in his Higher Chinese in P5, Madam Hor encouraged him to continue taking the subject in P6 instead of dropping it. The extra lessons he received not only helped him score ‘A’ for standard Chinese, but also helped him become more focused in his work.

Madam Hor has also been inspirational to my daughter who suffers from frequent eye inflammation. During PSLE, my daughter had a bout of eye inflammation and Madam Hor was understanding enough not to pressure her with homework submission. She also expressed tremendous concern and care to my daughter and this motivated her to press on. Thank you Madam Hor!

“Best Teacher in Primary School”

Yap Zhi De

I would like to compliment Madam Wang Hui from Junyuan Primary School for her generous help. In the second half of Primary Six, she would always be willing to help out with my Chinese compositions and comprehension questions. She also took the effort to prepare additional study materials for us. For example, she printed Chinese idioms for us to learn so that we can use them in our composition and oral examinations.

I was very grateful and pleased that I achieved an A* and Merit for my Chinese and Higher Chinese respectively. My grades has improved since Primary Five and I wouldn’t be able to do it without her help and support. On the day we received our PSLE results, she welcomed us to return to school to seek help from her if there was a need.

Madam Wang is indeed a dedicated educator who is willing to go the extra mile for her students. She is definitely my best primary school teacher and I am extremely grateful for her help.

“Dedicated Teacher who goes the Extra Mile”

Raymond lim

My son’s journey with Juying Primary School has gone far beyond my expectations with many dedicated teachers. I would like to express my gratitude to Ms Neo Jie Qi. Ms Neo would always connect with us via SMS and would not fail to remind or update parents on issues in school. According to my son, she is a strict but patient and inspiring teacher. My son looks forward to going to school every day as her lessons are interesting and she bonds well with them. When she has free time, students are welcome to stay back and clarify work with her. Also, she provided good advice when we were selecting a secondary school for our son.

A rare and dedicated teacher who would go beyond her call of duty, Ms Neo is indeed a true role model for all teachers!

“Always ready to help!”

Teti Juhara

I would like to compliment Mr Murugesu Samarasan from East View Primary School. Even though my three children had graduated from primary school, Mr Muru still keeps in contact and encourages them via Facebook. Whenever I pick my youngest son from school and happen to see him around, he would always chat and find out about my well-being.

My third son recently received his N-level results and was unsure about which course to choose. My husband called Mr Muru to seek his advice. He was helpful and explained to us the choices in detail. I am grateful and appreciative of Mr Muru’s helpful and caring attitude.

“Mrs Looi - A Caring and Amazing Teacher!”

Karen Loo

I would like to compliment Mrs Looi Lay Geok of Outram Secondary School for guiding my son. As his teacher, she has encouraged him to become more confident. He has also gained more interest in his studies. As a working parent, I found it difficult to coach my son due to time constraint. Hence, I am grateful for Mrs Looi’s help and caring attitude, without her, my son would not have been able to develop such great improvement in his academic performance.

Apart from his excellent performance, he has also displayed more emotional maturity and becoming a sensitive and caring adult. I am grateful and appreciative of Mr Looi’s amazing teaching skills. Thank you for unleashing the inner potential in my son!

“A Teacher who Never Gives Up”

Saratha Devi

Mrs Anba, my Tamil language teacher in Radin Mas Primary School, taught me how to pick up the language in an easier way and she was always encouraging. Initially I didn’t like Tamil lesson but I started to looked forward to Mrs Anba’s classes. She has done a lot for her students and I know that she will continue to do so! My brother and I are very proud to say that we are Mrs Anba’s students. She is a teacher whom we look up to and will treasure always, thank you for everything you have done for us!

“Patient and Dedicated Mathematics Teacher!”

Mr and Mrs Lam

My child disliked Mathematics since Primary Five but was lucky to have Mrs Tan Eng Leong from Radin Mas Primary School as her Mathematics teacher. We would like to thank her for her patience, dedication and words of wisdom that you have imparted to her, especially the period before PSLE!

“Keep up the Good Work Mr Low!”

Mr and Mrs Lam

We are grateful to Mr Low Min Chye, Vice-Principal of Radin Mas Primary School. He provided very good advice when I approached him on Direct School Admission. He also gave students good moral support and encouragement during the selection process. Mr Low shared with the students that education is not just to strive for academic excellence, but also for character building which will be helpful in the future. Mr Low is always at the canteen during recess time to check on the P6 students’ well-being. He encouraged the students and reminded them not to be nervous. Thank you Mr Low and keep up the good work!

“Best Decision Ever!”

Norhayati Sultan

When my son was posted to Yuhua Secondary School, I was sceptical I had not heard much about the school. However, I have to say that this was probably one of the best decisions I had made as Mr Raguvaran, my child’s Mathematics and Form teacher, was not only an exemplary figure, but also had a vibrant influence on his students. He has interesting teaching approaches to invigorate and bring life to the class. There has never been a day where my son did not look forward to attending school. With a remarkable teacher like Mr Raguvaran who takes initiative to help his students, I am sure I have made the right decision in placing my son in Yuhua Secondary School!

“Madam Jaya – My Extraordinary Teacher”

Jasmine Yeo

Madam Jaya was my former teacher in Changkat Changi Secondary School and she is teaching in Bedok North Secondary School presently. I have known Madam Jaya for 32 years and the vivid memory of her caring and helping her students remains.

Back in 1983, I had a fever and Madam Jaya went to look for Panadol in the General Office immediately. She offered to send me home after school and although she was carrying a bag full of test papers home to grade, she helped me carry my school bag as well. As both of her hands were occupied, she dropped her bag of test papers. Unfortunately, I was not well enough to help her. She did not hesitate to pick up all the papers and sent me home. She also called me to ensure that I was feeling alright at night.

I came from a low income family and wasn’t doing well academically. Madam Jaya took the initiative to tutor me in English after school even though she needed to attend to her unwell mother. Sometimes, she brought me to her house so that she could continue teaching me while keeping an eye on her mother. With Madam Jaya’s consistent help, my English improved. I was an introvert and had low self-esteem but Madam Jaya really helped me regain my confidence and I did well in English. Madam Jaya also trained me in my English oral skills – I took part in story-telling, debates and gained more confidence. This helped me realise my potential and excel in public speaking as I entered adulthood.

She celebrated my first birthday with me when I was 17 years old. This is a teacher who have gone the extra mile to communicate with my parents and even helped me to continue with my studies. In fact, she even offered to finance me in my studies. Even after I left school, Madam Jaya encouraged and guided me till I obtained a degree.

She had journeyed with me for 32 years and I am very touched by her kindness. Due to what Madam Jaya has done for me, I am now very involved in community service as she has impacted me to give back to society. Madam Jaya’s passion in teaching never ends – even after her retirement, she is still working hard to give her best to her students. Thank you Madam Jaya for educating many generations, I am truly grateful to be one amongst all!

“Mr Reutens - a true role model!”

Lin Fu Ting

My son has just received his PSLE results and I am very happy that he passed the examinations and was able to continue to Secondary-level under the Normal stream. All this is possible all because of his form teacher, Mr Mark Reutens of Anchor Green Primary School. My son had a rough first four years as he has ADHD. Fortunately, the school took correct measures and my son had a wonderful and understanding form teacher like Mr Reutens. He worked very closely with us to supervise my son. Without Mr Reutens, my son would not have the chance to advance to secondary level. My husband and I would like to thank Mr Reutens for his patience and co-operation. He is really a rare and dedicated teacher who would go beyond his call of duty to assist his students – a true role model for all teachers and those who are pursuing to be one. Thank you Mr Reutens!

“Dedicated and Tireless Teacher”

Naishatha Rajavel

I entered Tanjong Katong Primary School with minimal knowledge in the Tamil language. Madam Mageswari was very encouraging and I started liking the subject because of her. She took great effort to get us interested in the language. She compliments us when we do something right, but she is also stern when we do something wrong. My parents and I am grated for a dedicated and tireless teacher like her who keeps parents updated of their child’s progress.

“Unwavering Patience and Encouragement”

Sandra Chan

We are grateful to Ms Firdawati Somsudin of Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School for transforming our son into a more confident and resilient child.

“Encouraging and Supportive Form Teacher”

Swan Chin Wiggins (Theresa)

I would like to thank Mrs Marlina Azlan from Bowen Secondary School for being an awesome teacher during my daughter’s first and most challenging year of studying in Singapore. My daughter always mentioned about how dedicated and patient of a teacher you are. She will never forget you as her first teacher in Singapore. Keep up the great work as you are making a difference in many lives!

“Inspired by the Teachers in Bowen Secondary School for their Leadership and Care”

Swan Chin Wiggins (Theresa)

We are grateful for the quality education and leadership at Bowen Secondary School under the Principal, Mr Bernard Chew. Our family has benefited so much from his care and insights. We are appreciative of the values imparted to the students and specifically, grateful to Mr Chew’s insights to build resilience and compassion in his students.

My daughter had a ‘disappointing grade’ in what used to be her best subject. She became very discouraged and started to blame herself. Mr Chew found out about the issue and invited her to join the school’s Overseas VIA programme in Cambodia. She returned home with a deeper compassion for the less fortunate and renewed gratitude and motivation to excel.

Since young, she has always wanted to help orphans through medical missions. After this eye-opening trip, she resolved to help the less fortunate and I can never forget this touching moment that my daughter shared with me about her ambition.

Thank you Mr Chew and the rest of the teachers in Bowen Secondary School for your dedication and care!

“Mr Chan Made Chinese Lessons Interesting”

Sandra Chan

I would like to thank Mr Chan Wei Shan of Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School for making Chinese lessons an interesting one for my son. My son had never liked Chinese since he was in Kindergarten but with Mr Chan’s constant guidance and encouragement, he is now doing well. Thank you Mr Chan!

“Takes Time to Help Weaker Students”

An Guo Hao

As my General Paper teacher in Anderson Junior College, Ms Naomi Abraham takes time to teach students who are relatively weaker in the English language by providing extra consultation and help. She is the most patient teacher I ever had!

“Her Lessons Goes Beyond the Curriculum”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to thank Ms Yeo Qiting of Catholic High School (Primary). She is our son’s Chinese teacher and she makes lessons more interesting for her students through stories. When she comes across meaningful content, she does not hesitate to share them with her students. She does not merely confine her duties to delivering Chinese lessons in class. She also puts in good effort to prepare her students for their assessments and are concerned for their well-being. Ms Yeo is also open to suggestions put forth by parents. Thank you very much Ms Yeo for being a dedicated, diligent and caring teacher!

“Encourages Writing Creativity”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to express our appreciation to Mrs Joyce Liu of Catholic High School (Primary). Mrs Liu is our son’s co-teacher and English teacher. We are thankful that she encourages his creativity in writing. This has inspired him to write more and seek continual improvements. Thank you Mrs Liu for your guidance!

“Provided Meaningful Learning Opportunities for our Son”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to convey our gratitude to Mr Nicholas Chua of Catholic High School (Primary), the Form Teacher of our son. He appointed our son as Class Captain this year and this was a good learning opportunity. We appreciate Mr Chua’s leadership guidance to our son. Thank you Mr Chua for believing in our son taking a giant step of faith with him!

“Committed and Diligent Teacher”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to acknowledge Mr Timothy Quek Yixian of Catholic High School (Primary) for his hard work as the Mathematics and Form Teacher of our son. While Mr Quek is strict with his students, we understand that he has the interest of the boys at heart and realised that he is a committed and diligent teacher. Recently, our son had an accident in school. After informing us, Mr Quek stayed with him till we arrived. He even offered to accompany us to the hospital and continued to check on our son’s recovery. Thank you Mr Quek for your dedication and hard work!

“Thank you Mrs Chew for being an Inspiration!”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to thank Mrs Helen Chew (Madam Chee Foong Ee) for laying a good foundation for our son when she was his English cum Form Teacher in Catholic High Primary (Primary) last year. Without Mrs Chew’s guidance, he would not have come so far in his writing pursuits. With her encouragement, our son was inspired to write more. Thank you Ms Chew, for playing a pivotal role in our son’s education journey and for being an inspiration!

“Ms Ng Helped our Son Pursue his Interest”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We are grateful to Ms Ng Li Lin Sarah of Catholic High School (Primary) for going the extra mile, beyond her core duties as an English teacher to support our son’s writing interest. This year, she supported his application for admission to the GEP CWP programme, which he was eventually selected based on his portfolio submission. Ms Ng also supported our son in one of his writing competitions. Without Ms Ng’s efforts and assistance, our son will not be able to attain new heights in his interest. Despite being a young teacher, Ms Ng is very dedicated and committed, and we are very impressed by her attitude. Thank you very much!

“Thankful for a Great Teacher who goes the Extra Mile”

Kwok Lee Fun

My husband and I would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to Madam Ang Soh Kim of Woodgrove Primary School. It is really a great blessing for us to have Madam Ang as our daughter’s English and Form teacher. Madam Ang is caring, devoted and responsible who is well-liked by both parents and students. She makes English lessons fun and engaging. My daughter often tells us how much she enjoys learning English in Madam Ang’s classes. Madam Ang takes the extra effort to prepare materials for her lessons to boost confidence in her students’ writing. My daughter has really benefited from Madam Ang’s teaching methods and some parents are even envious of us for having such a great teacher! She even compiled all the journals of every child into a book that made us, parents, so proud of to read the entries!

Madam Ang keeps communication channels between herself and parents very open and sends us regular updates on homework, school matters and my daughter’s progress and behaviour to the point that she sometimes has to sacrifice her personal time to respond to queries outside school hours. We are very fortunate and thankful to have a dedicated teacher like Madam Ang who goes the extra mile to ensure that every child excels.

“A Dedicated Teacher”

Lynn Ahmad

I would like to compliment, Mr Yung Keng Sing from Si Ling Primary School for my son’s great improvement in Mathematics this year.

As my son’s Mathematics and co-form teacher, Mr Yung has encouraged him to become more confident and motivated. Mr Yung’s teaching methods and approach has also made a positive impact on my son’s Mathematics results. He understands Maths formulas better now.

During the Parent-Teacher meeting, both my husband and I met Mr Yung to collect my son’s report book and we could see that he is highly dedicated teacher who puts in his very best. I sincerely hope that Mr Yung’s efforts will be recognised by the school!

“Salute to Teachers in Red Swastika School!”

Sandra Lim

We would like to thank Madam Rukiya and Madam Lee Lin Phong at Red Swastika School for their dedication in educating and grooming our son. He has gained much knowledge and excelled in his studies. The teachers’ regular updates have helped working mothers to be constantly updated on the performance and progress of the students. This helps parents to focus on our child’s weaknesses and leverage on his strengths.

I would also like to compliment the teachers for organising an interactive and highly successful portfolio day. We are proud parents when we saw our son emceeing at the event.

Thank you once again, teachers in Red Swastika School for a job well done!

“Thank you SST for providing 24/7 updates”

Peggy Tan

I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Hoe, Principal of SST (School of Science and Technology Singapore), for actively planning and searching for alternative rescue routes for his students stranded in lombok, Indonesia since last week. He and his team have been updating all parents with the latest information in every way possible.

It must have been a stressful experience for Mr Hoe and his team as they have been working almost 24/7 until the students returned to Singapore safely.

Thank you very much for the team's effort!

“The Best Chinese Teacher”

Joshua Wong

I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Chew of Opera Estate Primary School for being the best Chinese teacher I have ever had. He taught me the value of perseverance and I finally passed the subject.

“An Exemplary Principal”

Mr Suraj Nair, the Principal of Teck Whye Primary School, is an example of a good leader among teachers, students and parents.

“Dedicated teacher who make lessons fun and exciting”

Pauline Koh

At the beginning of the year, my daughter and I were apprehensive as to whether she can adjust well to primary school as it is so different from kindergarten. Thanks to her form teacher, Mrs Teo-Lee from Poi Ching School, my daughter is excited to go to school! Mrs Teo-Lee made English lessons fun and engaging and she has also helped my daughter grasp Mathematical concepts more easily. As a working parent, I also appreciate the fact that she sends us regular updates on upcoming tests and revision lists. She takes initiative to share and helps us understand our child’s progress. I know that she is sacrificing her personal time to give her best to her students as her messages often come in the evening or on weekends. We are very fortunate to meet such a dedicated teacher like Mrs Teo-Lee!

“Dedication and passion for teaching”

Mrs Florence Neo

I would like to compliment Mdm Goh Ai Lian from De La Salle Primary School, my son’s form teacher. She really impressed me with her dedication and passion for teaching. We are indeed very blessed that our son had the opportunity to be under her tutelage and guidance for the past half a year.

Mdm Goh teaches with sincerity and shows love and concern for the well-being of her students and their academic progress. She goes the extra mile to communicate with us, keeping us in the loop on our son’s progress and behaviour in class. This helps to build better understanding between parent and teacher as well as development of my son’s character and academic progress.

I remembered she once called me after office hours on Saturday, to advise us on ways and methods to help my son improve areas in Math where he was weak in.

Although my son was uncomfortable with her firmness in disciplining him, we are very appreciative of her actions. We were delighted when my son shared that he had written a thank you note to Madam Goh in class as he sensed her genuine love and concern despite her firm personality.

We would like to thank her for encouraging, guiding and walking alongside us to help our son. She is able to see the potential in every child as well as identify their strength and weaknesses. She brings out the best in every child.

“My Child is more Confident in School”

Angeline Tan

There are many unsung heroes who put their heart and mind in nurturing our children and I see this exemplified in my daughter’s form teacher, Madam Siti Arfah of Anderson Primary School. My daughter lacks of courage as compared to her peers, and during show-and-tell, her voice is hardly audible. Madam Arfah encouraged and boosted my daughter’s confidence by teaching her the technique to public speaking and encouraged her to think creatively. It is heartening to see that Madam Arfah took personal interest in everyone in her form class and often engage parents.

I am grateful to Madam Arfah’s nurturance, as well as for making school so enjoyable for my daughter. Indeed, we need more of such passionate teachers!

I would like to express my gratitude to Miss Toh Ai Kit of Dunman Secondary School for her patience, concern and encouragement over the past years.

She helped me check with all his classmates and even went the extra mile to search for him till almost midnight.

My nephew is showing good progress in his school work this year and I would like to thank Miss Toh for her effort and guidance. Also, special thanks to Mr Suresh, the Principal, and team of teachers in the school for your support!

“Passion in Nurturing”

“Leaving An Impact On Our Lives”

Yong Min Chin

To Ms Kelly Yeo of Yuan Ching Secondary School, thanks for teaching history back in 2012 when I was in class 2N2.

On the behalf of your former Swedish and local students, I would like to express my appreciation for your efforts in teaching history and for sharing your precious knowledge with us.

Ms Thio is a good teacher. She is very caring and teaches her students to excel in their studies. As working parents, my hubby and I can concentrate on our work as we know our child is always in good hands. Ms Thio even tries her utmost to ensure that the kids have their food during their recess time before they go off to play and she cares about their behaviour. Ms Thio’s passion and professionalism has helped my child in generating interest in learning. Ms Thio is an outstanding teacher because of her passion and understanding toward students. Our son learns lots of things from her. Her dedication and belief in her students’ potential has motivated my son to aim higher in his studies.

“Going the Extra Mile”

Mdm Khairunnisa

Thank you Madam Poh Eng Hong of Xinmin Primary School for creating an awesome and wonderful learning experience for my daughter, Nur Hana Binte Zulkiflee of Primary 1D. Madam Poh has instilled a strong sense of love for learning in my child. Nur Hana will come back home telling me how she enjoys her English lessons.

Recently, my daughter was down with an eye infection and high fever. Having to miss lessons for a couple of days was not a good thing as I was worried that my child could not catch up. Madam Poh went the extra mile by visiting my daughter and sending her homework over on weekends. Some parents may not like it but I appreciated her gestures. She even spent some time explaining to me how to guide my child in her homework and the upcoming tests. As much as I was worried for my child, I could sense that Madam Poh shared the same feelings. I am indeed very thankful to Madam Poh.

Being a teacher myself, I really appreciated Madam Poh's effort towards my child despite her busy schedule. Madam Poh has created a positive attitude for learning in my child at this early level of her education life. I explained to my daughter the extra miles that her teacher had gone because I wanted her to appreciate every single thing that her teacher had done for her and her classmates.

My daughter agreed that Madam Poh has been a caring teacher, who is always willing to help her and her friends. I wish to recognize Madam Poh's effort in making a difference in my daughter's life. The love for learning that will last a lifetime.

“Unwavering Belief in His Students”

Betty Chiang

I would like to compliment Mr. Kantapon Numpilai, the Co-Form and Chemistry Teacher of Year 3C at Dunman High school. At my daughter’s first Chemistry lesson with Mr Kantapon, he assured the class that his students could score an ‘A’ in this subject.

I met him one day during the Teacher-Parent Session. I asked him, “My daughter didn’t do well in Sec 2. How did you make her so confident and help her to score an ‘A’ in her first Chemistry test?” His reply was, “If I don’t have confidence in my students, who else will?” My tears rolled down uncontrollably. I suddenly understood that it was his unwavering belief that motivated his class.

He has never failed to inspire 3C. Even in the midst of doing difficult projects and level tests, he would often send touching stories from his personal life experiences to spur his pupils on to believe in themselves!

On Mothers’ Day, Mr Kantapon reminded his pupils to say “I Love You” to their mothers. He could only make a long distance call as his mother was miles away.

It has been my privilege to have such and amazing and inspiring teacher for my daughter. He is always motivated to cheer his pupils on towards reaching their fullest potential!

“Great help in CHIJ Primary (Toa Payoh) ”

Gina Ho

I would like to thank Ms Pauline Chen, Corporate Support Officer in CHIJ Primary (Toa Payoh) for her support in handling our school.s Financial Assistance cases throughout the year. Ms Chen has been a great source of comfort and support. She speaks to my kids constantly and helping them find out more about our financial situation.

Thank you Ms Chen and IJ TPY! Truly appreciate your effort in stepping in this year, ensuring that the kids do not miss out on having the best education despite the difficulties each family face.

“Best Teacher in my Life”

Selvaraj Vishalini

Madam Nazira is one of the best teachers I have met. Other than imparting textbook knowledge to us, she is also proficient in general knowledge. She encouraged me to participate in competitions as I am fluent in my Mother Tongue. I am proud to be her student as I feel that she takes care of us like we her own chidren. Thank you Madam Nazira for being a role model and a great teacher.

“My Encouragement and Inspiration”

Selvaraj Vishalini

Madam Loo is my English teacher in Cedar Primary School and she has been my source of encouragement and inspiration. She encourages the weaker students by rewarding us with stationery when we do well. I was one of them but she has helped me and my English grades improved tremendously. I hope that Madam Loo will continue to be my English teacher in Primary Five.

“Mrs Yeo Helps Me Understand Maths Concepts Better”

Selvaraj Vishalini

Mrs Yeo is my Mathematics teacher in Cedar Primary School and she is a very kind teacher. Knowing that I am weak in certain topics such as fractions, she uses ‘tricks’ to help me understand the concepts and my understanding of the topic improved. Thank you for your help Mrs Yeo!

“Without You, I Might Have Given Up”

Melody Koh

Thank you to my teachers at Macpherson Secondary School, especially to my form teachers and subject teachers. Without your support and guidance, I might have given up!

He constantly kept in touch with me and welcomed feedback from us. I am pleased and relieved to have teachers like Mr Fong in the local system. Big thanks to you, Mr Fong.

“Caring for New Primary One Students”

Ying

I would like to thank Mdm Nahidah from Cedar Primary School for her encouragement and care. She taught me in Primary One and Two and was very encouraging. With Mdm Nahidah around, I felt comfortable and not fearful of the new environment. She would look out for us and take care of us in a motherly way.

Though I graduated five years ago, I vividly remember how she taught the class and her concern for students. I will always remember Mdm Nahidah and I wish all teachers a HAPPY TEACHERS DAY!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank her for all her hard work and wish her a Happy Teacher's Day!

“A Fun Teacher”

Balasundaram Badri

Mr Jabbar Jaffar from Cedar Primary School was my PE teacher in Primary Three and Primary Six. He taught us the right way to play and if we made mistakes, he would politely explain our mistakes. My friends and I always enjoyed his lessons.

Mdm Nazira Abdullah has been my Tamil teacher since Primary Three. She helps to correct my mistake and is caring towards us. Cedar Primary School is blessed to have her as one of their teachers.

I am sure that you have set the right foundation for all of us to appreciate and continue excelling in Tamil beyond Primary School!

“Teaching Us to Ask Questions”

Gayatiri Raveentheran

When I was in Cedar Primary School, Mr Zaki taught us Science with much enthusiasm. He would often bring us to the garden to explore plants beyond the textbook. Thank you for motivating and teaching us the importance of asking questions in class. It has helped me till today! Happy Teachers’ Day, Mr Zaki! Please continue inspiring more kids!

“My Daughter Wants To Be Like Her Teacher”

Norizan bte Rahmat

A teacher is anyone in the profession of teaching. However Mr Mohamed Rizal Abdul Aziz of Cedar Primary School is an excellent teacher because of his care and concern towards each student. His dedication and belief in his students’ potential has motivated my daughter to be a teacher when she grows up. My daughter struggles in her academic work, but Mr Rizal is selfless in sacrificing his time to support this group of children. He is always ready to help parents should we encounter any difficulties. My daughter said, "Mr Rizal makes his lessons interesting. He respects us as his students and makes me feel that I’m worth his time. I want to be a teacher that my students will remember when I grow up." Mr Rizal is an outstanding teacher. Thank You!

“Thank you Mr Rizal”

Julie

I would like to thank Mr Rizal for helping my class in preparing for PSLE this year. He helped me to understand about the future and how important education is. I will always remember you advice and do well in my studies. Thank you Mr Rizal!

“Thank You Mdm Choo”

Chintakunta Shreya

You have guided, supported and enlightened me.

HAPPY TEACHERS’ DAY!

“Happy Teachers’ Day to Teachers of SRJC ”

Vincent Tan

Happy Teachers' Day to Mr Phua. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving my son a helping hand by writing for him when he applied to NUS under discretionary admission after his A-level examination results were released. Thank you for empowering both my children in the student council to execute tasks with minimal supervision, grooming their leadership skills.

I would also like to thank Ms Goh, my sons’ chemistry teacher for her patience, help and encouragement. Now, my son is doing well (getting an A-) for his first elective in Physical Mathematics, which is part of his course in NTU Mathematical Science. My son was an Arts student, so I believe Ms Goh coached him well in Chemistry during his JC days.

I wish both of you and ALL teachers in SRJC a pleasant and joyful Teachers' Day and a good year ahead. God bless ALL of you with good health and strength to coach the students at SRJC and bring them to greater heights. Cheers!

Thank you Mr Rizal for spending more time to coach us in our weakest subject. You also make your classes interesting.

“Thank You”

“My Guide and Motivator”

Sivaranjini

I would like to express my gratitude to my primary school Tamil teacher, Madam Shavitha. She has been my guide and motivator. If she hadn’t taught me, I would not be who I am today.

Madam Shavitha taught me to be determined and resilient. Although I graduated from Yew Tee Primary School two years ago, none of my other teachers can take her place in my heart. Thank you Madam Shavitha, I will never forget you!

“Mr Ng is always there for us”

Cedric Gan

Mr Ng Soon Aik from Serangoon Secondary School may not be my form teacher, but he was always there for us. He is an approachable teacher who does his best to help everyone excel in their studies and taught us values in life without expecting anything in return. Thank you Mr Ng for your guidance!

“Truly appreciate Mrs Cha’s guidance and effort”

Vivien

Through the guidance of Mrs Cha Sau Mei from Northland Primary School, I learnt to be more mature. My confidence as a speaker grew and I am also more active as a leader. My deepest appreciation to Mrs Cha for everything she had done for me and my class. She expects us to take notes to help in our revision and I truly appreciate why she wanted us to do so. Thank you, Mrs Cha!

“Dedicated teachers in Kheng Cheng School”

Margaret

I am thankful towards my daughter’s previous form teacher, Mrs Jessica Pang from Kheng Cheng School. She taught my daughter Mathematics and Arts and was a very dedicated, caring and thoughtful teacher. I greatly appreciate her encouragement, kindness and patience. Other than writing inspirational notes to my daughter, she updates me regularly on my daughter’s progress in school. She is really awesome!

Also, I would like to express my gratitude to Miss Santi, my daughter’s new form teacher, for her patience and encouragement.

Wishing both of them a Happy Teacher’s Day and hope that they have a nice break!

“An awesome netball coach, PE teacher and mentor”

Vivien

To a determined netball coach, creative PE teacher, disciplined athlete and an awesome mentor:

Through all our netball trainings, I realised that my skills have improved since I first picked up the sport. I would like to attribute my success to Ms Sylvia Lim from Admiralty Secondary School.

During the first half of the year, I did not know much about netball but Ms Lim was patient in teaching me. She always goes the extra mile by creating motivational cards for her netballers and organises friendly matches so that we can improve. She cares for us not just in netball, but is also concerned about our studies and character development. When it is the examination period, she would organise study groups so that we can catch up on our work. I admire her for her commitment in mentoring and coaching us. Ms Lim is also fair and treats everyone equally. As my PE teacher, she would organise fun games to bond the class. Often, she encourages us to write in our journals so that she knows the problems we are facing. She would also give us various options to address our challenges. Thank you Ms Lim for being so committed to the netball team!

“Mrs Diana Kang, my role model and inspiration!”

Punitha

Mrs Diana Kang was my secondary teacher about 15 years ago in Christ Church Secondary School. Her lessons were inspiring and she never failed to express her care and concern for us. Once, I was on long term medical leave and was worried about not being able to catch up. Mrs Kang chose to spend her afternoons coaching me. Unfortunately, she left school just before my ‘O’ levels. Her motivation and care pushed me beyond my limits. She inspired me to be a teacher as well! Today, I try to create the same environment for my students. I have not been able to locate her but I am glad that MOE provided this opportunity for me to say ‘Thank you, ‘Cher!’

“Thank You For Your Guidance”

Yong Min Chin

On behalf of her former students, I would like to express gratitude towards Mrs Li @ Koh Jie Ying of Yuan Ching Secondary School for teaching us Principles of Accounts back in 2013 and 2014. We would not have gone to our favourite courses in Polytechnics, ITEs, JCs & Millennia Institute without your help and guidance. I sincerely hope you will receive the President's Award for Teachers!

“Building Our Foundation”

Yong Min Chin

On the behalf of her former students, I would like to thank Mdm Wong Ling Ling for teaching our class, 3e3 (2013) and 4e3 (2014), a crucial subject, Math, at Yuan Ching Secondary School. During our lowest moment, you saved us and helped the majority with our weak foundation. We passed Math with flying colours during the O-level exams because of your consistent teaching. Without you, we would have failed and would not be able to go to our preferred further education courses.

“Thanks to All Teachers”

Yusang Yonjon

I was born in Singapore and lived there until I finished my primary education at Cedar Primary School. When I passed by PSLE, I honestly didn’t know how to feel. It hadn’t sunk in yet. I remember holding the certificate in my hand, and saying to myself, “This is it.” I looked at my class teacher, Mr Goi, and he said, “Well done!” Many thoughts ran through my head and I could only manage a simple “thank you” in reply. I knew I wouldn’t have been where I was without the help of all my teachers, from nursery to primary school.

Under the guidance and support of my teachers at Cedar Primary School, and the extra classes they would provide, I improved greatly in my Math and Science, along with many of my friends of class ’07. Even till this day, I am thankful to them for helping me become a better student.

I would like to say thank you, not only to my teachers but to all teachers out there. You’ve made us who we are today.

“Thank you to Staff of Jurong Junior College”

Pek Beng Aik

I would like to express my appreciation for Miss Tay Lai Ling and her team of teachers at Jurong Junior College. They have been very patient and supportive of my son, Pek Zheng Xin, during his two years in the school. Thank you very much for caring for Zheng Xin and looking out for him, even when it is discouraging at times.

“Highly Respected by Parent and Son”

Susan Peters

I would like to thank Mr Kelvin Ong from Northlight School who has always shown care and concern for my son. His consideration for and encouragement to my son has helped him tremendously. In fact, he does this for all his students. Mr Ong has always been consistent in letting me know about the progress of my son and goes all out in every effort he can to help. It shows me, a parent, how concerned and caring a teacher he is.

Once again I thank you Mr Kelvin Ong for being a mentor to my son because I know he respects you highly. Keep up your caring efforts and I hope that MOE will take in more teachers or educators that function not only with the head but very much also from the heart, because not every child is built the same.

“The Superhero”

Anonymous

I graduated from Ang Mo Kio Secondary School a few years back and I will always remember the superhero, Mr Aubury Ong. Without his patience and guidance, I wouldn't be who I am today.

He was a discipline master who would always guide his problematic students onto the right track. He would offer to help his students with their studies despite not teaching those written subjects. He would offer his listening ear to students who were feeling down, care about our well being and even help students after school hours. To Mr Aubury Ong, being a discipline master is more than a job.

He always told me, "Nothing is impossible; Impossible is when you give up." This sentence keeps me going even till now. His encouragement helps me believe that I'm not hopeless. Thank you for being such a great DM in AMKSS.

“Unwavering Faith in My Potential”

yong min chin

Dear Mrs Teri Toh@Foo Siew Fong of Yuhua Primary School,

I am currently doing well in my first year of NITEC in Business Services with a GPA of 3.267. I have done well because of your unwavering faith in my academic potential back in 2010. I would not have done it without you as my co-form and maths teacher then. I sincerely hope you will receive the President's Award for Teachers! I also wish you a very Happy Teachers’ Day in advance!

“I’m Glad I Met You ”

Law Chiu Yuan

Mr Jabbar Jafaar is my Physical Education teacher, but if my class or I have any problems, he would do whatever it takes to help us solve them. He has been encouraging me, helping me with school work and is the best listening ear anyone can have. A teacher like him is rare and I'm glad I've met him.

Mr Jabbar of Cedar Primary School is a very reasonable, understanding and funny teacher. I feel that I can tell him anything, even though he is a teacher.

“A Responsible and Proactive CCA Teacher ”

Lam Kah Mun

I would like to thank Miss Michelle Koh, Teacher-in-Charge of Boys' Brigade of West Grove Primary School from the bottom of my heart for being a responsible and proactive CCA teacher. My sons benefitted much from the BB programmes and activities under Ms Koh’s leadership.

Through the enriching programmes, my sons not only learnt and developed life skills, but also picked up important values of integrity, gratitude and compassion. They learnt the importance of how to succeed not only as individuals but more critically, how to succeed as a team. The change in attitude is especially evident for my elder son who joined BB only at the beginning of Primary 5. The transformation seen in him is evident not only in school but more so at home.

Thank you Ms Koh for all your Saturday sacrifices and for making a difference in the lives of my two boys!

“Teachers I Remember ”

Laxmi magar

I graduated from Cedar Primary School in 2007. I would like to thank Mr Jabbar Jaafar who was a great motivator when I took up soccer as my CCA. With his passion and determination, he taught us about confidence and teamwork. One of my best memories of primary school life was winning the champion trophy and doing my school proud. It wasn’t easy but under his coaching and encouragement, our hard work paid off. My team mates and I were playful and put soccer as a first priority. As a teacher, coach and friend, he encouraged us to play hard but to put effort in studies too. I’m glad so to have met a leader like him and thank him for his support.

I would also like to thank Ms Tan Siew Yean, my Principal of Account (POA) teacher for 3 years at Bartley Secondary School. I was one of the weakest students and struggled to do well. With her patience and extra coaching, I improved a lot and I’m thankful that she didn’t give up on me and encouraged me to do better.

“Dedicated teacher who believes in us! ”

I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Amos Yang of Ping Yi Secondary School for showing care and concern to my class. He is a dedicated teacher who believes in his students, helps us achieve great things and never gives up on us. Thank you Mr Yang for your support and care!

“My Teacher, A Lifesaver”

Yong Min Chin

To Mrs Tan@Goh Mui Gek, thank you for teaching me Chinese in first half of 2013. Without your guidance, I would have scored badly for the Chinese N-Level examinations. In my lowest moment, you consoled me and encouraged me to be stronger. You have been a lifesaver for those with a weak foundation in Chinese. We have improved because of your effective teaching. You’ve earned our salute, Mrs Tan and we hope that you will receive the President's Award for Teachers! On behalf of all your former students, thank you! 陈吴梅玉老师,真的感激您的母语教导。

“Strict by Loving ”

Leya

In 1989, I transferred from Chong De Primary School to Xinmin Primary School. Mrs Loh Lee Yaw was my form teacher then. I remember her for being strict but motherly and loving. I kept in touch with her and she continued to advise me. It was unfortunate that I have lost contact not only with Mrs Loh but also with many other teachers who made a difference in my life. Mrs Loh, wherever you may be, I hope you remember me. Thank you for all that you have done!

“Thank You to Teng Lao Shi ”

Leya

I fondly remember Madam Tng, my naggy but loving F&B teacher whose lessons were very interesting. I kept in touch with her, till after I entered polytechnic. She was a great confidante. We have since lost contact and I just want her to know how grateful I am. Thank you Madam Tng. You cared and believed in me, in all of us.

“Building Confidence through Show & Tell ”

Mrs Wang

I would like to express my gratitude to Ms Chow Wei Yi of Fairfield Methodist Primary School. She taught my son, Jun Kai, in Primary 1 and 2. With her constant encouragement, he performed well in his year-end examinations in Primary 2. Ms Chow is a very diligent teacher. I remembered how she put in effort to practice with her class for their Show & Tell test. This really helped the students gain more confidence in public speaking. She also sends us weekly updates to keep us informed on what was taught in class. I am glad that she is my son’s teacher, thank you Ms Chow!

“A Caring and Dedicated Educator ”

Patsy Loy

I would like to express my appreciation to my son’s form teacher, Mdm Rose Iliyana from North Vista Primary School. She is very dedicated, caring, helpful and will go the extra mile to show encouragement and love to her students. When she learnt that my son did not eat during his break time and has been losing weight, she reminded him to have his meals, even took photos of him having his meals and sent it to me.

She also spent time to inform me on methods to solve Mathematics questions whenever I requested for them even though she was busy with other matters in school. My son was encouraged and his behaviour changed for the better. Mdm Rose would also keep me updated on my son’s behaviour and performance in school. She works closely with parents to help the students and is indeed a great teacher. I wish her all the best in her teaching career!

“Grateful for Support from Concord Primary School”

He Zhimin

We would like to express our gratitude for the efforts that our daughter’s teachers (Ms Heng Chwee Hong, Madam Ee Peck San, Madam Charlena Low, Madam Santhi, Mr Yusman and Mr David Wang) have made through her academic years from P1 to P4 at Concord Primary School. Our daughter, Jessica, enjoys going to school and this gives us much assurance. We appreciate the way teachers in the school have guided and encouraged Jessica to do well in her studies. By making their lessons more innovative, our daughter has developed a keen interest in her studies.

We appreciate the dedication, passion and support that the teachers have shown as it creates a huge impact on the students’ learning process. Thank you Concord Primary School!

“Unwavering faith in my potential”

My future is brighter because of what she has done for us as our co-form and Maths teacher in 2010. I sincerely hope that she will receive the President’s Award for Teachers.

“Utmost gratitude to Miss Choo”

Joaie

I would like to express my gratitude to Miss Martha Choo, a former teacher in Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Primary School. I was struggling in Mathematics in Primary Five. As PSLE drew near, she offered to give me consultation sessions daily after school. She believed in us and prepared us very well for PSLE.

Eventually, we improved under her guidance and did well for PSLE. I would like to take this opportunity to show my appreciation for her contributions and patience to my class even though she had transferred to another school. Thank you Miss Choo!

“Mrs Anba Made My Son Enjoy Learning Tamil”

Liz Uthman Asri

I would like to thank Madam K Malarvizhi (Mrs Anba) from the bottom of my heart for being a wonderful teacher. My son, Afif, disliked Tamil language since young and was never motivated to do his homework. He does not understand why learning Tamil was important. Whenever he whines, I had to gently remind him to at least pass the subject as it is part of the curriculum.

He had a change of attitude ever since Mrs Anba took over as his subject teacher for Tamil. The results are phenomenal, Afif does his homework dutifully and puts in effort to understand the subject instead of completing his assignment for the sake of doing it. One day, Afif came home after his Tamil exams and said, “Actually, Tamil language is easy, why was I struggling all this time?” I was so surprised when I heard that; and all I could do was to silently thank you for changing his perspective.

Your teaching approach has made learning enjoyable for Afif. I am aware that he may not have high scores for Tamil as his foundation is weak. However, scores do not matter to me. The fact that he is enjoying the language is what matters most. Thank you for making a difference Mrs Anba!

“We Would Have Failed Without Mrs Li”

I would like to thank Mrs Li @ Koh Jie Ying for teaching us Principal of Accounts. If not for her, we would have failed. I sincerely hope that she will be conferred the President’s Award for Teachers.

“Thanks For Being My Friend”

Tan

I would like to express my gratitude to Madam Lok Yin Yin from Queensway Secondary School. She is very supportive, a motherly figure for her students. I am really sad that she has transferred to another school. Madam Lok, thank you for giving me strength, courage and for being my friend.

“Go the Distance”

Tan Minghui

I would like to thank Mr Eddie Koh of Serangoon Secondary School for taking time to coach us in Principle of Accounts (POA). It made the subject more meaningful and understandable. Your selflessness has also touched our lives greatly. We appreciate your willingness to impart knowledge to us and your guidance has also ignited our passion for the subject. Thank you once again for giving us the greatest gift of sparking our interest in POA and creating memorable experiences for us.

“Valuable Life Lessons”

Yong Min Chin

Mrs Toh, thank you for your guidance in 2010 when I was in Primary 6. Without you, I would not have understood and passed Math. We are grateful to have you as our teacher. You have taught us many valuable life lessons. Hope you will receive the President’s Award for Teachers!

“Continues To Inspire His Students”

Evee Ng

My heartfelt thank you goes to Mr Ong Chee Beng from Springfield Secondary School. He is indeed a role model his students. He is caring, thoughtful and never gave up on us. He is very dedicated and passionate, that at over 60 years of age, he has yet to retire and continues to inspire his students.

“Glad We Made The Right Choice!”

Tan

I would like express my gratitude to Madam Jameyahti Bte Ab Malek of Elias Park Primary School for her dedication and encouragement towards my son and his classmate of Class 1K. It is indeed remarkable to have a responsible and committed teacher like Madam Jamey. She always keeps me informed of my son’s behaviour and progress in school. Her prompt feedback has allowed me to address the issues immediately. It is also heartening to know that she puts in a lot of effort to develop her students’ character.

I understand that a teacher’s job is very challenging and tiring, but Madam Jamey goes the extra mile to reach out to parents. We are indeed fortunate to have made the right choice in sending my child to Elias Park Primary for it truly has an excellent team of staff members!

“Discovered my Passion in Chemistry and Biology”

unknown

I graduated from Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School (Secondary) in 2013. I would like to thank Mr Chiam Bai Jie for teaching and helping me to discover my interest in Sciences. I am currently studying Sciences as well in Republic Polytechnic and aspire to be a Science teacher just like Mr Chiam.

“Going the Extra Mile”

Dawn Lu

I would like to commend the Vice-Principal of Concord Primary School, Mr David Wang.

As parents, we tend to worry when our children cross the traffic junction before and after school as the school gate is located along the main road. Children are vulnerable road users. Road safety for children is a social concern and accidents do happen around school areas.

Even as a Vice-Principal, Mr David Wang makes an effort and takes an active role. He will station himself along the main road to guide and care for school children after school hours, ensuring that they follow the traffic rules. I often see him there despite the scorching heat or wet weather. He has gone the extra mile. Thank you, Mr Wang.

“Never Giving Up On Students Like Me”

Radiyah

I graduated from Pasir Ris Crest Secondary School in 2012. I was from the Normal (Technical) Stream. The teacher whom I would like to compliment is Ms Kris Chua. Ms Chua was a very dedicated teacher who never gave up on her students. She would help them believe in themselves and help them to achieve. She would always be there for her students despite all the ups and downs.

Ms Chua taught me upper secondary. I was very rebellious, especially during math and science lessons. I did not listen to any teacher and as I was hospitalised often for my personal medical problems, I just gave up on my studies. I refuse to do any homework and threw them away instead. I would hide from classes, skip CCAs and was rather defiant to teachers. I hated Ms Chua because she always forced me to study. I hurt her and made her cry a few times during lessons, but she has never given up on me.

Once, during a science lesson in the laboratory, Ms Chua separated the class into two groups because we were very noisy. She placed me in the second group, with another teacher. When I argued, she moved me into her group. I continued to run around, play, chatted away and not do my work. She kept asking the class to pay attention. Although the class listened to her, I did not. She almost broke down in front of us, but immediately ran behind, where she hid and cried. That was the last time I ever made her cry. I woke up and felt so extremely terrible, that I broke down too. I felt so bad because Ms Chua always cared for my classmates and I, but we took advantage of her goodness. Though I was impacted, it was not easy for me change. I continued to behave badly, but she did not give up. Ms Chua would chase me down, make sit beside her and she would teach me. Because of her, I became more respectful and obedient in school. She would sit down and talk to me like her own daughter, and made sure I went down for CCA trainings.

In Secondary Four, I spent more than half the year in hospital and I wanted to give up. I was on the verge of telling my Principal that I wasn't prepared to take my N-levels and would like to repeat the year. However, this special teacher was there to help me. Although she was my Science teacher, she knew that I was also very weak in Math and offered to teach me both subjects. She sacrificed her break time, lunch time and after-school hours to personally teach me until the N-level examinations. Even when she was unwell, she continued to teach me after school. Ms Chua also had to rush home after her meetings at 6.30pm to look after her 4-year-old son and prepare dinner. Without wasting a single minute, she would then rush back to school to teach me during the night study sessions. She would often bring her son along, so that she could teach both of us at the same time. It was very stressful, but she did not mind doing it for me and wanted me to do well in my N-levels. She is a wonderful and passionate teacher who believes in her students’ education and I appreciate her a lot. She is a superwoman to me.

Before my math paper, I sent her a text, telling her that I was afraid and did not want to turn up for the paper. She motivated me and came extra early to school the next day to do last minute revision with me. She was there when I got my results. I passed everything, including Math and Science, which I used to get a “U” grade for. I was so happy that I hugged her and thanked her.

When I did not want to continue my education in ITE, she sat me down to choose courses. I got a place at my first choice, the Community Care and Social Service course at ITE Collage East. Ms Chua was so happy that she jumped and hugged me and even told the other teachers in school. However, again in ITE, I was lazy in my studies, lacked motivation and looked down on myself. I hated life, would skip school often and thought of quitting again. Without fail, Ms Chua stepped in to motivate me and show me love, care and guidance like a mother. I successfully graduated last December and I’m now a more confident and positive person. I am currently a teacher aid at the Thye Hua Kwan EIPIC Centre.

I would never have gotten this far without Ms Chua. She made a tremendous and extraordinary change in my life and my perspectives. From her, I have also learnt not to stay out late all the time, and do silly things like I would in the past. We are still keeping touch and occasionally she would do a check on me. Ms Chua has not stopped being a mother to all her students, she continues to help, motivate and shape her students and juggle her time for home and school. Teachers like Ms Kris Chua should be recognised for all the hard work they put in for students like me.

“Learnt to Love and Appreciate Math”

Michael Tan

Mr Michael Teo taught me Math when I was in Mountbatten English School in 1977 to 1982. I never did well in Math. Mr Teo coached and motivated me. I grew to love and appreciate Math. I even got an A for PSLE. Mr Teo, thank you for your patience. I will not be what I am today, without you.

“Thank You For Caring, Ms Chew”

Jan Chan

After the completion of the new school building for Keming Primary School, the school went into single session in 2014. I remembered Ms Chew, the new principal stationed herself for at least a good 2 to 3 weeks along the main roadside every morning to help with traffic control. She reminded parents in the cars to be patient and queue in line to allow their children to alight within the safety of school compound. Her presence touched my heart. Thank you Ms Chew.

“An Inspiring and Dedicated Teacher”

Sabina Beglerovic

Often, we take things for granted and forget how much impact teachers have on our children. As busy parents, it is not surprising that we often miss out the chance to stop and reflect on the influence that dedicated teachers have upon young children. A friendly smile or a word of encouragement may mean a lot to our children while as adults, we often take them for granted. These gestures remain with children for a long time and help to shape their personality and thoughts.

Mr Edward Toh from East Spring Primary School has taught my daughter since Primary One. He inspires my daughter to read and seek more knowledge in not just English, but other subjects as well. She has progressed well both academically and in her CCA, which she takes seriously. He encourages her by telling her how she can manage both her studies and CCA if she focuses on the task at hand and has good time management. We are grateful that despite the hectic schedule of educators in Singapore, there are still dedicated individuals who are committed and strive to recognise everyone’s strengths. Mr Toh is indeed an exemplary of a good teacher.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Toh and the school for making learning conducive for our daughter. We also hope that East Spring Primary would recognise the dedication of Mr Toh.

“Instilling a Love for Reading”

Tracey Ng

Ms Anne Perara of Canossa Convent Primary School is an amazing teacher. My daughters adored her because to Ms Perara, English was never about grades and tests. She taught my daughters to immerse themselves in the language and encouraged them to read voraciously. As a result, my daughters love reading even until today. Ms Perara instils a love for reading in her students. She treats them with equality and strongly believes that no child should be left behind. Thank you Ms Perara for being a remarkable teacher!

“Unwavering Support”

Joyce Shen

I would like to thank Ms Lim Fong Yee of Yishun Junior College for all her efforts. She was supportive of my decision to repeat a year in JC and I am a teacher now all because of how she inspired me to be one. You may not have been my subject teacher in my three years in YJC but you taught me important life lessons. I am thankful for having you in my life!

“The Best Teacher I Ever Had”

Jake Yup

I would like to thank Ms Ng Wei Huah for being the best teacher I have ever had. I hope that Ms Ng will get to read this note of appreciation.

“Unconditional Care and Support”

Chen Mooi Ying

I would like to thank and commend Ms Tan May Fung, the school counsellor from Qifa Primary School, for her unconditional care and support. The help extended was more than anyone could ask for and I am grateful to have met someone like her. I would also like to thank the Principal, Vice-Principal and other staff members who have lend a helping hand in one way or another. Qifa Primary School truly has a wonderful team of staff members.

“Beyond the Call of Duty”

Jenny Ong

I would like to comment Mr Lee Wei Loong of Red Swastika School who taught my daughter in P5 and 6. My daughter lacked interest in her studies and did not perform well. However, she was greatly motivated to do better when Mr Lee took on her class. Under his guidance, she showed great improvement and achieved above average results for PSLE. I personally think that Mr Lee’s conscientious and dedicated self has nurtured his students. He performed beyond his call of duty.

I am very happy and blessed that my daughter has such a fantastic teacher and have no doubt that students will do well under Mr Lee’s care.

My sincerest gratitude and appreciation to Mr Lee!

“Encouraging Teacher”

Lee Jun Xian Joey

Mr Jabbar is my great teacher in Cedar Primary School. He treats everyone like his own child and his constant help has encouraged me to do well in my studies.

“Dedicated and Caring Teacher”

Sankar Sanjeev

Mrs Krishnan was my son’s form teacher at East Coast Primary School when he was in Primary Six. My son has since graduated and is studying at Temasek Secondary School.

Mrs Krishnan was kind and encouraging. The years of experience she has enabled her to handle even the most troublesome students. She is able to help her students learn efficiently. Her dedication and passion to devote extra time to weaker students is very inspiring. She always helps students, even at night when they have to seek clarifications on certain questions. She also gives feedback on her students’ performance.

She is a good example of a dedicated and caring teacher who has her students’ interest at heart. I am sure she has made a positive impact on many young lives.

“The Best Thing A Teacher Can Do”

Madiha Sabah

I would like to thank Mrs Leng Sun Ee, my son’s Primary Two co-form teacher of Qihua Primary School.

My son started school late and managed to join his class in early February last year. She has been very supportive and encouraging in many ways and my son has been very inspired by her kindness. Even though she is not his teacher anymore, he still misses her.

From a mother’s perspective, I firmly believe that she made his transition into a new environment, country and system seamless and smooth. Words cannot express how thankful we are.

She has earned the respect and love of the children because of her determination and effort. I have seen many teachers in my life, but none are close to her calibre she has set.

I will not be able to repay what she has done for us, especially in doing her best to make my son feel welcomed in a new environment. This is the best thing any teacher can do – to assure parents that their child is in safe hands.

“Going The Extra Mile”

Chua Gek Huey

I would like to compliment Madam Teo Tang Hee, my son’s form teacher at Evergreen Secondary School.

I have four children and most of the teachers I have encountered were good and responsible teachers.

However, I am truly impressed by Madam Teo in the way she responded to all my queries and in helping me solve administrative issues. She would not hesitate to respond to my SMSs and would always pro-actively follow-up with all the issues I have. There was no need to ask her to follow-up because she is always prompt in doing that.

Madam Teo would go the extra mile to find out information on my behalf or ensure that proper follow-up has been done. Sometimes, she is so responsive that I felt apologetic for taking up too much of her time.

When she knew that my son would attend MSP outside school every Wednesday, she ensured to let other teachers know that to avoid holding extra classes or activities on that day.

Madam Teo really touched my heart when she gave me immediate feedback on my son’s problems. I have to express my deepest appreciation because as a working mother, I barely have time to monitor my son’s work. Madam Teo has been very helpful, her immediate feedback has allowed me to speak to my son of his issues almost immediately. I do understand that a teacher’s job is never easy and indeed taxing but Madam Teo goes the extra to reach out to parents. Thank you!

“A Supportive and Committed Relief Form Teacher”

Janis Low

I would like to express my gratitude to Ms Soh Siew Lian of Princess Elizabeth Primary School for her dedication and encouragement towards my son and his classmates of Class 2F in 2014.

Ms Soh has never failed to keep me informed about my son’s progress and development in school. It is indeed remarkable to have such a supportive and committed teacher even though she was only a relief teacher.

Her professionalism, concern, perseverance also encouraged me. Thank you very much Ms Soh!

“Tribute to an Unforgettable Teacher”

Chin Suat Mui

As ‘kampung kids’, we knew little beyond home and school, but Mr Tan Beng Huat from Lee Kuo Chuan Primary School in 1956 came along to guide us to learning beyond the textbooks.

His small efforts opened our eyes to the world. There was once when we took the bus to Raffles Junior Library along Stamford Road to be a member of the library. Mr Tan taught us how to borrow books with our library cards and even taught us to select books. I was inspired by Mr Tan and remained as a member of the library for decades.

He sets interesting assignments such as writing down the car models – so that was when my knowledge of car manufacturers started! We may have not sat in a car back then, but we were not totally ignorant!

Our quest for knowledge continued as Mr Tan taught us not to remain content, but instead we should aim for the sky! I will never forget his encouragement: ‘Even if we do not reach the sky, we may land on the tree but that is better than to remain on the ground’.

“A Gem who Brings out the Best in Children”

Suresh Abirami

Ms Renuka is one of the best teachers in the world. I am amazed at how she brings out the best in children. She teaches Tamil in Ahmad Ibrahim Primary School and I am one of the thankful mothers who have such a gem as a teacher for my son. He is studying in his dream school now because of the guidance that Ms Renuka gave. Thank you for motivating your students Ms Renuka!

“Compassionate Hearts”

Mrs Gina Sapru-Lee

My older son graduated from Endeavour Primary School last year and my younger son is in Primary One this year. I must compliment Mrs Pek Kwee Lan, the Principal and her team of teaching and non-teaching staff for their competence. They are efficient in their work and is a great team of educators and administrative staff with hearts filled with love, care and compassion for the students.

My younger son has a severe food allergy and other health issues. I am thankful that the Mrs Pek and her teachers are understanding and accommodating enough to allow me to bring home cooked food for my son every day.

To the following staff, thank you for your dedication and hard work!

  • Mrs Pek Kwee Lan - Principal

Keep up the good work Jurong West Primary

— Mathina Abdul Hamid

I'm writing to express my gratitude to the school principal and the teachers of Jurong West Primary. My son has been studying in the school for the past 5 years and his behaviour and attitude has shown me that the school instills discipline in their students. My son has been a great example to his siblings, he finishes his projects and homework on time. The patience, encouragement and use of words by the teachers, as well as the partnership between the principle and teachers have played a great role in transforming students to excel in their studies. Keep up the good work and keep going.

A Great Motivator and Mentor

— Lam Zhi Liang

Ms Eunice Goh is a great motivator, mentor and a sincere friend. She tirelessly helps every of her. I did not fare well at the O-level English examinations and at General Paper in JC1.

“An Inspiring and Caring Educator

— Andrew Leong

It has been four years since my son took his PSLE and he is now being offered a place in one of the polytechnics. His learning journey was made easier when he first entered Primary One at St Stephen’s School. Despite my son’s inability to spell and write legibly, Mr Joseph Gerard Lesslar showed patience and taught my son well. My son was encouraged to participate in class and was not placed under unnecessary stress. We are grateful to Mr Joseph, who exhibited kindness without compromising discipline and his teaching standards. My son was formally diagnosed with dyslexia later in his primary school years, and I was grateful that Mr Joseph treated my son like any normal student even though we did not know of his condition then. He was even made a student leader in secondary school. Thank you Mr Joseph Gerard Lasslar for being such an inspiring educator!

“Kind and Caring Teacher

— Muhamad Fadhlullah Bin Bahurudin

 Alice Kuek

I would like to express my appreciation to Mr Eddie Tay of Crescent Girls’ School. He taught my daughter when she was from Secondary 2 – 3 and is a very committed educator. He makes an effort to know his students and understand their strengths and weaknesses in his subjects. He also takes the time and effort to help and encourage his students. He is very popular and is well-liked by his students.

Hence, I’d like to recognise Mr Tay for his work towards educating our students and grooming them to become leaders of tomorrow!

“Motivating and Empowering Educator

— Rebekah Lee

I am thankful to Mr Imran Ali of Canberra Primary School for motivating my son to be more focused and confident in achieving his goals.

Kudos to Mr Kwok of Temasek Primary School for clarifying some of the questions I had for my child who is Primary Two now. Mr Kwok is observant and proactive in addressing my queries. Thank you Mr Kwok!

“Grateful for Mr Jabbar's Unconditional Care”

Robert Soma Sundram s / o Mogan

I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Jabbar of Cedar Primary School for all his help and concern. I had initially wanted to register my son to a new school near my new house but we were unable to move over eventually. I had already disposed of his uniforms and cancelled his transport to the school. As my son was in the waiting list in the new school, I did not buy books for him too. After deciding to send my son back to Cedar Primary School, I had to make arrangements again. Upon calling Mr Jabbar, he started to help us with no hesitation with my son’s transport and getting some old uniforms for us first. He would also follow up with us frequently. Mr Jabbar even helped to arrange to send the books to my house. I am grateful for Mr Jabbar’s unconditional help and our family is truly inspired by his proactive and gracious acts.

“Grooming Students into Leaders of Good Character”

Sherlene Lim

My daughter is a Primary Five student in Haig Girls’ School. Over the past few years, I have observed how the school has emphasised not just academic excellence, but also character development. One interesting programme is ‘Gratitude Thursday’. On alternate Thursdays, students are encouraged to pen words of gratitude on a card before handing it to the person they wish to thank. Parents are also encouraged to participate in this effort to show appreciation to people around us. What a great idea to involve parents in showing our children what gratitude is!

As a parent, I am aware that the school leaders care about the well-being of the students and my daughter is in good hands. During the haze period a few months ago, the school also managed the situation very well. I would also like to thank Mrs Constance Loke, Principal of Haig Girls’ School, and her team of teachers for their hard work and sincerity in guiding and grooming students into leaders of character.

“Kind, dedicated and driven teacher”

Ex-student from Christ Church Secondary

I was a student of Mr Eugene Teo Qing Cong of Christ Church Secondary School a few years ago. It was a case of serendipity that I was assigned to his class at the end of Secondary Two. I had planned to enrol in the Triple Science class, but unfortunately, could not meet the grade requirement for Mathematics. Initially, I did not like my class. We were an odd mix, some of us were studious while others were disengaged.

Mr Eugene never gave up on us. In fact, he was the reason why our class formed close-knit bonds. When some of us complained that the classroom was too warm, Mr Teo brought several fans to keep the classroom cool so that we have a conducive learning environment. He also invested in pails, soap and cleaning equipment to keep the class spick and span. Beyond that, one of my classmates who was considered to be rather problematic, managed to turn his life around under the guidance and support of Mr Teo. This classmate came from a dysfunctional family and was disinterested in learning, but Mr Teo managed to transform him. When he could not afford the fees to sit for ‘O’ levels, it was Mr Teo who paid for it. My classmate, once considered a lost cause, is now studying Accountancy at a local polytechnic.

It was Mr Teo’s drive, kindness and dedication that enabled us to dare to dream high. He made us believe we were more than just ordinary kids!

“Thank you Ms Priya for your prompt response and concern”

Winston Choo

I would like to express my appreciation to Ms Priya of Yio Chu Kang Primary School (YCKPS) for her fast response and kind attention given to my daughter. Ms Priya is my daughter’s form teacher in Primary One and she personally responded to my feedback over an incident in school very promptly. I am relieved to know that the incident did not occur in school, but in the day care centre. Although this was the case, Ms Priya did not hesitate to speak to us about the matter. Thank you Ms Priya and YCKPS for your concern and attention.

“Cultivating the Love of Chinese”

Mrs Karen Lim

I would like to express my gratitude to Madam Peng of Marymount Convent School. She taught my daughter from 2014 – 2015 and was an excellent Chinese teacher who has helped to improve my daughter’s mastery of the Chinese language. Madam Peng as willing to put in effort to help her students in the language and cultivate the love of learning in them. Without her dedication and encouragement, my daughter would not have managed to score well and achieve her targets.

Madam Peng has left the school but we would not forget her enthusiasm and passion in teaching. Thank you for going the extra mile to encourage, communicate and ensuring that your students do well. Truly, it is because of you that my daughter learnt to like Chinese language.

“Great Educator, Mentor and Friend”

Derek Woo Wei Yen

We would like to express our gratitude to Mr Lee Wei Loong, my son’s form teacher at Red Swastika School. Mr Lee approached every student as an unique individual with different character and aptitude. My son’s interest in learning increased tremendously after being taught by Mr Lee in Primary Four.

Mr Lee keeps open communication with parents and provides regular feedback to us on the progress of our son. He spends time to conduct extra lessons for students who need extra help. His teaching method encourages thinking, discussion, and he challenges students to do their best. My son’s grades improved tremendously over a year. Mr Lee also goes out of his way to organise class activities to bond his students together. As a result, my son made great friends in school. He also encourages frequent parent-child engagement through fun-filled activities.

Because of Mr Lee’s selfless dedication, my son has been awarded the Good Progress Award. I would like to thank Mr Lee for being a great educator, mentor and friend to the young generation starting on their education journey!

“Kudos to Teachers from Rulang Primary School”

Mr & Mrs Tang

With deep gratitude, I would like to express my sincerest appreciation to teachers and staff of Rulang Primary School for nurturing my children throughout their primary school life. The school has provided a conducive and comfortable learning environment for them. Under the caring, dedicated and good leadership of the school’s wonderful teachers, I am humbled, yet happy to share that both of them have graduated from the school with flying colours for their PSLE!

I recalled when I failed to secure a place for my elder daughter during the Phase 3 registration for Primary One, I was utterly disappointed but never give up hope to enrol my children in the school. Throughout their education journey in Rulang Primary, I came across many dedicated, caring and helpful teachers who have taught my children in good faith and with deep passion. They made efforts to update me on the progress of my children and worked hand in hand with me to ensure that my children stayed on track to succeed academically as well as develop individually. I would like to thank Ms Ee Wei Leng, Madam Ong Lay Peng, Madam Leong Yea Ling, Madam Wahetha, Mr Goh Wei Howe and Ms Chea Seok Choo.

Special appreciation to Mr Goh Wei How and Ms Christine Foo for their relentless dedication, patience, personal attention and guidance that helped my daughter improve not just academically, but also in behaviour. With the good help from both Mr Goh and Ms Foo, they worked together with me to help my daughter. It is with their deep concern and “never give up” attitude that made my daughter see light at the end of the tunnel.

Today, both my children have moved on successfully to the next chapter in life. Although my daughter has already graduated from the school, my gratitude still stands and it lies deep in our family. On behalf of my husband and I, we would like to thank the teachers and staff of Rulang Primary School! Your good efforts to nurture our children and the future generation has been recognised!

“Thank you for creating a safe environment for our students!”

Mrs Lee

This year, Ai Tong School moved back to its original site located at Sin Min. My son has been looking forward to moving back to Ai Tong’s original site and all of us were excited on the first day of school. Mr Tan, Principal of Ai Tong School, and his team helped out as traffic wardens in the mornings and during dismissal times to manage the traffic situation. Although there were some hiccups and delays, the resourcefulness of the school, together with other community partners such as LTA, grassroot leaders and Traffic Police, managed to improve the situation. I wish to salute Mr Tan and his team for their endless efforts in creating a safe and conducive environment for the students.

“Deepest appreciation to Nan Chiau High School”

Mrs Ng

I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the following teachers and staff in Nan Chiau High School:

1) Form teachers of 5B, Mr Ng Kok Min, Mr Suresh Supramaniam, Madam Ivy Wong, who are highly dedicated teachers who never gave up on our son, boosting his confidence to believe in himself and helping him achieve his goals.

2) Upper-secondary Year Head, Mr Dalvey Neo and Mrs Cheryl Lo. My son was a rebellious boy but both teachers are always available and willing to listen to our concerns and guide our son well on the right track.

3) >Head-of-Department for Aesthetics, Miss Kong Sook Ming and Senior Teacher, Madam Angie Ngo, who do not confine their duties to merely teaching but chose to show extra care and concern to our son.

4) TSOs who gave their strong moral support and encouragement for my son to learn and strive during Design and Technology lessons.

We would also like to thank the school leaders, in particular Mr Tan Yee Kan, Principal of Nan Chiau High school, for his strong support and commitment. It was a big challenge for our son to be able to take the ‘O’ level examinations under a stressful environment but the school has helped him in overcoming the stress. No words can convey our appreciation to Mr Tay, Vice-Principal of the school, who inspired my son with confidence to work hard for the future. Also, we are thankful to Madam Chow, Vice-Principal, who motivated my son to work hard with the warmth and love extended to him.

We are grateful that the teachers and school staff have done their best to help our son cope with his studies. Their patience and guidance have helped us in immeasurable ways and we deeply appreciate the care they have shown to my son. I hope the school will be able to inspire more students in the future and lead them to brighter paths!

“Dedicated and Fun Teacher”

Valerie Soon

My son is now in P2 at Kong Hwa School. His form teacher, Madam Lynn Liew, gave the class a goodie bag consisting of items with poems and encouraging words written on them. When my son was in P1, she gave us her mobile number and updated us on our son’s progress. She would also send us photos of the class activities. We are blessed that our child has such a dedicated, fun teacher and he looks forward to go to school every day. Thank you Madam Liew!

“Mr Rizal's proactive approach eased my 'first day of school' concerns!”

Tan Li Wen

My son is entering P1 and as we had missed the school orientation, I had a few queries regarding administrative procedures. Mr Rizal Aziz, my son’s form teacher from Cedar Primary School, responded quickly to my queries and took a proactive approach to check that the information was in place before calling me. Appreciate his promptness and proactive attitude which helped in easing both my child and myself on the first day of school. Thank you Mr Rizal!

“Thanks for being a great teacher”

Mrs Rena Chen

As the saying goes: “A good teacher is everything a parent can never be, thanks for being one.”

This is exactly what I would like to convey to my son’s P4 Science teacher, Mrs Soh-Chan Siew Lai of Holy Innocents’ Primary School. She monitors his progress closely and constantly updates us. This has helped my son become more attentive and he has also become more interested in Science.

Thank you, Mrs Soh, for your great support, encouragement and care!

“Thank you for never giving up”

Tan Sijia

To our dearest Madam Cai (蔡老) of Bedok Town Secondary School, I am not sure if she still remembers me but I would like to thank her for everything she has done. I am grateful for her utmost patience and her encouragement towards us although we were not the most obedient students. She did not merely impart knowledge, but also life lessons. Thank you so much for everything!

“Working in Close Partnership with Pei Tong Primary Helped our Child”

Samantha Chew

As the academic year 2015 draws to a close, we wish to thank all teachers in Pei Tong Primary School for providing many happy memories for our son. The teachers have created a conducive and comfortable environment for our son to learn and strive as an individual and your accommodation to cater to his learning difficulties has helped us in immeasurable ways. We are grateful that the school is closely with us, parents, as partners in helping our son cope.

It was a difficult decision to transfer our son out of his previous school but we remembered our first meeting with Mrs Heng Gay Lee, Vice Principal of Pei Tong Primary. To be honest, we had no prior knowledge of the school and was naturally apprehensive. We are thankful that Mrs Heng was reassuring and told us more about the school environment. With the benefit of hindsight, it was definitely the right choice we made. Not only did our son perform academically well, he was able to truly enjoy his primary school days in Pei Tong.

We would like to sincerely applaud Pei Tong Primary, in particular Mr Chan Ta Hoong (his form teacher from Primary Four to Six) for his strong support, commitment and partnership. It is a big achievement for our son to be able to take the PSLE examinations without fear. Our son was also given ample opportunities to participate in various programmes and activities in school. No words can convey our appreciation for everything the school has done to develop as a confident and holistic individual. Pei Tong Primary has certainly lived up to the school motto of nurturing confident and self-directed learners who exhibit social responsibility and character.

“Madam Hor - An Inspiration and Encourager”

Mrs Pang

I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Madam Hor Puay Li, my children’s Higher Chinese teacher from Hougang Primary School. When my son was did not do well in his Higher Chinese in P5, Madam Hor encouraged him to continue taking the subject in P6 instead of dropping it. The extra lessons he received not only helped him score ‘A’ for standard Chinese, but also helped him become more focused in his work.

Madam Hor has also been inspirational to my daughter who suffers from frequent eye inflammation. During PSLE, my daughter had a bout of eye inflammation and Madam Hor was understanding enough not to pressure her with homework submission. She also expressed tremendous concern and care to my daughter and this motivated her to press on. Thank you Madam Hor!

“Best Teacher in Primary School”

Yap Zhi De

I would like to compliment Madam Wang Hui from Junyuan Primary School for her generous help. In the second half of Primary Six, she would always be willing to help out with my Chinese compositions and comprehension questions. She also took the effort to prepare additional study materials for us. For example, she printed Chinese idioms for us to learn so that we can use them in our composition and oral examinations.

I was very grateful and pleased that I achieved an A* and Merit for my Chinese and Higher Chinese respectively. My grades has improved since Primary Five and I wouldn’t be able to do it without her help and support. On the day we received our PSLE results, she welcomed us to return to school to seek help from her if there was a need.

Madam Wang is indeed a dedicated educator who is willing to go the extra mile for her students. She is definitely my best primary school teacher and I am extremely grateful for her help.

“Dedicated Teacher who goes the Extra Mile”

Raymond lim

My son’s journey with Juying Primary School has gone far beyond my expectations with many dedicated teachers. I would like to express my gratitude to Ms Neo Jie Qi. Ms Neo would always connect with us via SMS and would not fail to remind or update parents on issues in school. According to my son, she is a strict but patient and inspiring teacher. My son looks forward to going to school every day as her lessons are interesting and she bonds well with them. When she has free time, students are welcome to stay back and clarify work with her. Also, she provided good advice when we were selecting a secondary school for our son.

A rare and dedicated teacher who would go beyond her call of duty, Ms Neo is indeed a true role model for all teachers!

“Always ready to help!”

Teti Juhara

I would like to compliment Mr Murugesu Samarasan from East View Primary School. Even though my three children had graduated from primary school, Mr Muru still keeps in contact and encourages them via Facebook. Whenever I pick my youngest son from school and happen to see him around, he would always chat and find out about my well-being.

My third son recently received his N-level results and was unsure about which course to choose. My husband called Mr Muru to seek his advice. He was helpful and explained to us the choices in detail. I am grateful and appreciative of Mr Muru’s helpful and caring attitude.

“Mrs Looi - A Caring and Amazing Teacher!”

Karen Loo

I would like to compliment Mrs Looi Lay Geok of Outram Secondary School for guiding my son. As his teacher, she has encouraged him to become more confident. He has also gained more interest in his studies. As a working parent, I found it difficult to coach my son due to time constraint. Hence, I am grateful for Mrs Looi’s help and caring attitude, without her, my son would not have been able to develop such great improvement in his academic performance.

Apart from his excellent performance, he has also displayed more emotional maturity and becoming a sensitive and caring adult. I am grateful and appreciative of Mr Looi’s amazing teaching skills. Thank you for unleashing the inner potential in my son!

“A Teacher who Never Gives Up”

Saratha Devi

Mrs Anba, my Tamil language teacher in Radin Mas Primary School, taught me how to pick up the language in an easier way and she was always encouraging. Initially I didn’t like Tamil lesson but I started to looked forward to Mrs Anba’s classes. She has done a lot for her students and I know that she will continue to do so! My brother and I are very proud to say that we are Mrs Anba’s students. She is a teacher whom we look up to and will treasure always, thank you for everything you have done for us!

“Patient and Dedicated Mathematics Teacher!”

Mr and Mrs Lam

My child disliked Mathematics since Primary Five but was lucky to have Mrs Tan Eng Leong from Radin Mas Primary School as her Mathematics teacher. We would like to thank her for her patience, dedication and words of wisdom that you have imparted to her, especially the period before PSLE!

“Keep up the Good Work Mr Low!”

Mr and Mrs Lam

We are grateful to Mr Low Min Chye, Vice-Principal of Radin Mas Primary School. He provided very good advice when I approached him on Direct School Admission. He also gave students good moral support and encouragement during the selection process. Mr Low shared with the students that education is not just to strive for academic excellence, but also for character building which will be helpful in the future. Mr Low is always at the canteen during recess time to check on the P6 students’ well-being. He encouraged the students and reminded them not to be nervous. Thank you Mr Low and keep up the good work!

“Best Decision Ever!”

Norhayati Sultan

When my son was posted to Yuhua Secondary School, I was sceptical I had not heard much about the school. However, I have to say that this was probably one of the best decisions I had made as Mr Raguvaran, my child’s Mathematics and Form teacher, was not only an exemplary figure, but also had a vibrant influence on his students. He has interesting teaching approaches to invigorate and bring life to the class. There has never been a day where my son did not look forward to attending school. With a remarkable teacher like Mr Raguvaran who takes initiative to help his students, I am sure I have made the right decision in placing my son in Yuhua Secondary School!

“Madam Jaya – My Extraordinary Teacher”

Jasmine Yeo

Madam Jaya was my former teacher in Changkat Changi Secondary School and she is teaching in Bedok North Secondary School presently. I have known Madam Jaya for 32 years and the vivid memory of her caring and helping her students remains.

Back in 1983, I had a fever and Madam Jaya went to look for Panadol in the General Office immediately. She offered to send me home after school and although she was carrying a bag full of test papers home to grade, she helped me carry my school bag as well. As both of her hands were occupied, she dropped her bag of test papers. Unfortunately, I was not well enough to help her. She did not hesitate to pick up all the papers and sent me home. She also called me to ensure that I was feeling alright at night.

I came from a low income family and wasn’t doing well academically. Madam Jaya took the initiative to tutor me in English after school even though she needed to attend to her unwell mother. Sometimes, she brought me to her house so that she could continue teaching me while keeping an eye on her mother. With Madam Jaya’s consistent help, my English improved. I was an introvert and had low self-esteem but Madam Jaya really helped me regain my confidence and I did well in English. Madam Jaya also trained me in my English oral skills – I took part in story-telling, debates and gained more confidence. This helped me realise my potential and excel in public speaking as I entered adulthood.

She celebrated my first birthday with me when I was 17 years old. This is a teacher who have gone the extra mile to communicate with my parents and even helped me to continue with my studies. In fact, she even offered to finance me in my studies. Even after I left school, Madam Jaya encouraged and guided me till I obtained a degree.

She had journeyed with me for 32 years and I am very touched by her kindness. Due to what Madam Jaya has done for me, I am now very involved in community service as she has impacted me to give back to society. Madam Jaya’s passion in teaching never ends – even after her retirement, she is still working hard to give her best to her students. Thank you Madam Jaya for educating many generations, I am truly grateful to be one amongst all!

“Mr Reutens - a true role model!”

Lin Fu Ting

My son has just received his PSLE results and I am very happy that he passed the examinations and was able to continue to Secondary-level under the Normal stream. All this is possible all because of his form teacher, Mr Mark Reutens of Anchor Green Primary School. My son had a rough first four years as he has ADHD. Fortunately, the school took correct measures and my son had a wonderful and understanding form teacher like Mr Reutens. He worked very closely with us to supervise my son. Without Mr Reutens, my son would not have the chance to advance to secondary level. My husband and I would like to thank Mr Reutens for his patience and co-operation. He is really a rare and dedicated teacher who would go beyond his call of duty to assist his students – a true role model for all teachers and those who are pursuing to be one. Thank you Mr Reutens!

“Dedicated and Tireless Teacher”

Naishatha Rajavel

I entered Tanjong Katong Primary School with minimal knowledge in the Tamil language. Madam Mageswari was very encouraging and I started liking the subject because of her. She took great effort to get us interested in the language. She compliments us when we do something right, but she is also stern when we do something wrong. My parents and I am grated for a dedicated and tireless teacher like her who keeps parents updated of their child’s progress.

“Unwavering Patience and Encouragement”

Sandra Chan

We are grateful to Ms Firdawati Somsudin of Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School for transforming our son into a more confident and resilient child.

“Encouraging and Supportive Form Teacher”

Swan Chin Wiggins (Theresa)

I would like to thank Mrs Marlina Azlan from Bowen Secondary School for being an awesome teacher during my daughter’s first and most challenging year of studying in Singapore. My daughter always mentioned about how dedicated and patient of a teacher you are. She will never forget you as her first teacher in Singapore. Keep up the great work as you are making a difference in many lives!

“Inspired by the Teachers in Bowen Secondary School for their Leadership and Care”

Swan Chin Wiggins (Theresa)

We are grateful for the quality education and leadership at Bowen Secondary School under the Principal, Mr Bernard Chew. Our family has benefited so much from his care and insights. We are appreciative of the values imparted to the students and specifically, grateful to Mr Chew’s insights to build resilience and compassion in his students.

My daughter had a ‘disappointing grade’ in what used to be her best subject. She became very discouraged and started to blame herself. Mr Chew found out about the issue and invited her to join the school’s Overseas VIA programme in Cambodia. She returned home with a deeper compassion for the less fortunate and renewed gratitude and motivation to excel.

Since young, she has always wanted to help orphans through medical missions. After this eye-opening trip, she resolved to help the less fortunate and I can never forget this touching moment that my daughter shared with me about her ambition.

Thank you Mr Chew and the rest of the teachers in Bowen Secondary School for your dedication and care!

“Mr Chan Made Chinese Lessons Interesting”

Sandra Chan

I would like to thank Mr Chan Wei Shan of Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School for making Chinese lessons an interesting one for my son. My son had never liked Chinese since he was in Kindergarten but with Mr Chan’s constant guidance and encouragement, he is now doing well. Thank you Mr Chan!

“Takes Time to Help Weaker Students”

An Guo Hao

As my General Paper teacher in Anderson Junior College, Ms Naomi Abraham takes time to teach students who are relatively weaker in the English language by providing extra consultation and help. She is the most patient teacher I ever had!

“Her Lessons Goes Beyond the Curriculum”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to thank Ms Yeo Qiting of Catholic High School (Primary). She is our son’s Chinese teacher and she makes lessons more interesting for her students through stories. When she comes across meaningful content, she does not hesitate to share them with her students. She does not merely confine her duties to delivering Chinese lessons in class. She also puts in good effort to prepare her students for their assessments and are concerned for their well-being. Ms Yeo is also open to suggestions put forth by parents. Thank you very much Ms Yeo for being a dedicated, diligent and caring teacher!

“Encourages Writing Creativity”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to express our appreciation to Mrs Joyce Liu of Catholic High School (Primary). Mrs Liu is our son’s co-teacher and English teacher. We are thankful that she encourages his creativity in writing. This has inspired him to write more and seek continual improvements. Thank you Mrs Liu for your guidance!

“Provided Meaningful Learning Opportunities for our Son”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to convey our gratitude to Mr Nicholas Chua of Catholic High School (Primary), the Form Teacher of our son. He appointed our son as Class Captain this year and this was a good learning opportunity. We appreciate Mr Chua’s leadership guidance to our son. Thank you Mr Chua for believing in our son taking a giant step of faith with him!

“Committed and Diligent Teacher”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to acknowledge Mr Timothy Quek Yixian of Catholic High School (Primary) for his hard work as the Mathematics and Form Teacher of our son. While Mr Quek is strict with his students, we understand that he has the interest of the boys at heart and realised that he is a committed and diligent teacher. Recently, our son had an accident in school. After informing us, Mr Quek stayed with him till we arrived. He even offered to accompany us to the hospital and continued to check on our son’s recovery. Thank you Mr Quek for your dedication and hard work!

“Thank you Mrs Chew for being an Inspiration!”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We would like to thank Mrs Helen Chew (Madam Chee Foong Ee) for laying a good foundation for our son when she was his English cum Form Teacher in Catholic High Primary (Primary) last year. Without Mrs Chew’s guidance, he would not have come so far in his writing pursuits. With her encouragement, our son was inspired to write more. Thank you Ms Chew, for playing a pivotal role in our son’s education journey and for being an inspiration!

“Ms Ng Helped our Son Pursue his Interest”

Mr & Mrs Chew

We are grateful to Ms Ng Li Lin Sarah of Catholic High School (Primary) for going the extra mile, beyond her core duties as an English teacher to support our son’s writing interest. This year, she supported his application for admission to the GEP CWP programme, which he was eventually selected based on his portfolio submission. Ms Ng also supported our son in one of his writing competitions. Without Ms Ng’s efforts and assistance, our son will not be able to attain new heights in his interest. Despite being a young teacher, Ms Ng is very dedicated and committed, and we are very impressed by her attitude. Thank you very much!

“Thankful for a Great Teacher who goes the Extra Mile”

Kwok Lee Fun

My husband and I would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to Madam Ang Soh Kim of Woodgrove Primary School. It is really a great blessing for us to have Madam Ang as our daughter’s English and Form teacher. Madam Ang is caring, devoted and responsible who is well-liked by both parents and students. She makes English lessons fun and engaging. My daughter often tells us how much she enjoys learning English in Madam Ang’s classes. Madam Ang takes the extra effort to prepare materials for her lessons to boost confidence in her students’ writing. My daughter has really benefited from Madam Ang’s teaching methods and some parents are even envious of us for having such a great teacher! She even compiled all the journals of every child into a book that made us, parents, so proud of to read the entries!

Madam Ang keeps communication channels between herself and parents very open and sends us regular updates on homework, school matters and my daughter’s progress and behaviour to the point that she sometimes has to sacrifice her personal time to respond to queries outside school hours. We are very fortunate and thankful to have a dedicated teacher like Madam Ang who goes the extra mile to ensure that every child excels.

“A Dedicated Teacher”

Lynn Ahmad

I would like to compliment, Mr Yung Keng Sing from Si Ling Primary School for my son’s great improvement in Mathematics this year.

As my son’s Mathematics and co-form teacher, Mr Yung has encouraged him to become more confident and motivated. Mr Yung’s teaching methods and approach has also made a positive impact on my son’s Mathematics results. He understands Maths formulas better now.

During the Parent-Teacher meeting, both my husband and I met Mr Yung to collect my son’s report book and we could see that he is highly dedicated teacher who puts in his very best. I sincerely hope that Mr Yung’s efforts will be recognised by the school!

“Salute to Teachers in Red Swastika School!”

Sandra Lim

We would like to thank Madam Rukiya and Madam Lee Lin Phong at Red Swastika School for their dedication in educating and grooming our son. He has gained much knowledge and excelled in his studies. The teachers’ regular updates have helped working mothers to be constantly updated on the performance and progress of the students. This helps parents to focus on our child’s weaknesses and leverage on his strengths.

I would also like to compliment the teachers for organising an interactive and highly successful portfolio day. We are proud parents when we saw our son emceeing at the event.

Thank you once again, teachers in Red Swastika School for a job well done!

“Thank you SST for providing 24/7 updates”

Peggy Tan

I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Hoe, Principal of SST (School of Science and Technology Singapore), for actively planning and searching for alternative rescue routes for his students stranded in lombok, Indonesia since last week. He and his team have been updating all parents with the latest information in every way possible.

It must have been a stressful experience for Mr Hoe and his team as they have been working almost 24/7 until the students returned to Singapore safely.

Thank you very much for the team's effort!

“The Best Chinese Teacher”

Joshua Wong

I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Chew of Opera Estate Primary School for being the best Chinese teacher I have ever had. He taught me the value of perseverance and I finally passed the subject.

“An Exemplary Principal”

Rizana

Mr Suraj Nair, the Principal of Teck Whye Primary School, is an example of a good leader among teachers, students and parents. He has always taken feedback positively and made improvements to the school. With the support of his teachers, TWPS has won many awards and the moral support he gave to his staff and students is indeed motivating. Thank you Mr Suraj for leading TWPS so well!

“Dedicated teacher who make lessons fun and exciting”

Pauline Koh

At the beginning of the year, my daughter and I were apprehensive as to whether she can adjust well to primary school as it is so different from kindergarten. Thanks to her form teacher, Mrs Teo-Lee from Poi Ching School, my daughter is excited to go to school! Mrs Teo-Lee made English lessons fun and engaging and she has also helped my daughter grasp Mathematical concepts more easily. As a working parent, I also appreciate the fact that she sends us regular updates on upcoming tests and revision lists. She takes initiative to share and helps us understand our child’s progress. I know that she is sacrificing her personal time to give her best to her students as her messages often come in the evening or on weekends. We are very fortunate to meet such a dedicated teacher like Mrs Teo-Lee!

“Dedication and passion for teaching”

Mrs Florence Neo

I would like to compliment Mdm Goh Ai Lian from De La Salle Primary School, my son’s form teacher. She really impressed me with her dedication and passion for teaching. We are indeed very blessed that our son had the opportunity to be under her tutelage and guidance for the past half a year.

Mdm Goh teaches with sincerity and shows love and concern for the well-being of her students and their academic progress. She goes the extra mile to communicate with us, keeping us in the loop on our son’s progress and behaviour in class. This helps to build better understanding between parent and teacher as well as development of my son’s character and academic progress.

I remembered she once called me after office hours on Saturday, to advise us on ways and methods to help my son improve areas in Math where he was weak in.

Although my son was uncomfortable with her firmness in disciplining him, we are very appreciative of her actions. We were delighted when my son shared that he had written a thank you note to Madam Goh in class as he sensed her genuine love and concern despite her firm personality.

We would like to thank her for encouraging, guiding and walking alongside us to help our son. She is able to see the potential in every child as well as identify their strength and weaknesses. She brings out the best in every child.

“My Child is more Confident in School”

Angeline Tan

There are many unsung heroes who put their heart and mind in nurturing our children and I see this exemplified in my daughter’s form teacher, Madam Siti Arfah of Anderson Primary School. My daughter lacks of courage as compared to her peers, and during show-and-tell, her voice is hardly audible. Madam Arfah encouraged and boosted my daughter’s confidence by teaching her the technique to public speaking and encouraged her to think creatively. It is heartening to see that Madam Arfah took personal interest in everyone in her form class and often engage parents.

I am grateful to Madam Arfah’s nurturance, as well as for making school so enjoyable for my daughter. Indeed, we need more of such passionate teachers!

My nephew was a rebellious boy who gave problems to teachers. I would like to express my gratitude to Miss Toh Ai Kit of Dunman Secondary School for her patience, concern and encouragement over the past years.

She helped me check with all his classmates and even went the extra mile to search for him till almost midnight.

My nephew is showing good progress in his school work this year and I would like to thank Miss Toh for her effort and guidance. Also, special thanks to Mr Suresh, the Principal, and team of teachers in the school for your support!

“Passion in Nurturing”

“Leaving An Impact On Our Lives”

Yong Min Chin

To Ms Kelly Yeo of Yuan Ching Secondary School, thanks for teaching history back in 2012 when I was in class 2N2.

On the behalf of your former Swedish and local students, I would like to express my appreciation for your efforts in teaching history and for sharing your precious knowledge with us. You also shared with us openly about your personal life and teaching experiences. Thank you for making history fun and sharing positive values during lessons.

We write to compliment Ms Thio Su Ping from Innova Primary School for showing her love and care to our son, who is in Primary 2 now. He has been in good hand under Ms Thio’s care since Primary 1. Ms Thio is a good teacher. She is very caring and teaches her students to excel in their studies. As working parents, my hubby and I can concentrate on our work as we know our child is always in good hands. Ms Thio even tries her utmost to ensure that the kids have their food during their recess time before they go off to play and she cares about their behaviour. Ms Thio’s passion and professionalism has helped my child in generating interest in learning. Ms Thio is an outstanding teacher because of her passion and understanding toward students. Our son learns lots of things from her. Her dedication and belief in her students’ potential has motivated my son to aim higher in his studies.

“Going the Extra Mile”

Mdm Khairunnisa

Thank you Madam Poh Eng Hong of Xinmin Primary School for creating an awesome and wonderful learning experience for my daughter, Nur Hana Binte Zulkiflee of Primary 1D. Madam Poh has instilled a strong sense of love for learning in my child. Nur Hana will come back home telling me how she enjoys her English lessons.

Recently, my daughter was down with an eye infection and high fever. Having to miss lessons for a couple of days was not a good thing as I was worried that my child could not catch up. Madam Poh went the extra mile by visiting my daughter and sending her homework over on weekends. Some parents may not like it but I appreciated her gestures. She even spent some time explaining to me how to guide my child in her homework and the upcoming tests. As much as I was worried for my child, I could sense that Madam Poh shared the same feelings. I am indeed very thankful to Madam Poh.

Being a teacher myself, I really appreciated Madam Poh's effort towards my child despite her busy schedule. Madam Poh has created a positive attitude for learning in my child at this early level of her education life. I explained to my daughter the extra miles that her teacher had gone because I wanted her to appreciate every single thing that her teacher had done for her and her classmates.

My daughter agreed that Madam Poh has been a caring teacher, who is always willing to help her and her friends. I wish to recognize Madam Poh's effort in making a difference in my daughter's life. The love for learning that will last a lifetime.

“Unwavering Belief in His Students”

Betty Chiang

I would like to compliment Mr. Kantapon Numpilai, the Co-Form and Chemistry Teacher of Year 3C at Dunman High school. At my daughter’s first Chemistry lesson with Mr Kantapon, he assured the class that his students could score an ‘A’ in this subject.

I met him one day during the Teacher-Parent Session. I asked him, “My daughter didn’t do well in Sec 2. How did you make her so confident and help her to score an ‘A’ in her first Chemistry test?” His reply was, “If I don’t have confidence in my students, who else will?” My tears rolled down uncontrollably. I suddenly understood that it was his unwavering belief that motivated his class.

He has never failed to inspire 3C. Even in the midst of doing difficult projects and level tests, he would often send touching stories from his personal life experiences to spur his pupils on to believe in themselves!

On Mothers’ Day, Mr Kantapon reminded his pupils to say “I Love You” to their mothers. He could only make a long distance call as his mother was miles away.

It has been my privilege to have such and amazing and inspiring teacher for my daughter. He is always motivated to cheer his pupils on towards reaching their fullest potential!

“Great help in CHIJ Primary (Toa Payoh) ”

Gina Ho

I would like to thank Ms Pauline Chen, Corporate Support Officer in CHIJ Primary (Toa Payoh) for her support in handling our school.s Financial Assistance cases throughout the year.

Thank you Ms Chen and IJ TPY! Truly appreciate your effort in stepping in this year, ensuring that the kids do not miss out on having the best education despite the difficulties each family face.

“Best Teacher in my Life”

Selvaraj Vishalini

Madam Nazira is one of the best teachers I have met. Other than imparting textbook knowledge to us, she is also proficient in general knowledge. She encouraged me to participate in competitions as I am fluent in my Mother Tongue. I am proud to be her student as I feel that she takes care of us like we her own chidren. Thank you Madam Nazira for being a role model and a great teacher.

“My Encouragement and Inspiration”

Selvaraj Vishalini

Madam Loo is my English teacher in Cedar Primary School and she has been my source of encouragement and inspiration. She encourages the weaker students by rewarding us with stationery when we do well. I was one of them but she has helped me and my English grades improved tremendously. I hope that Madam Loo will continue to be my English teacher in Primary Five.

“Mrs Yeo Helps Me Understand Maths Concepts Better”

Selvaraj Vishalini

Mrs Yeo is my Mathematics teacher in Cedar Primary School and she is a very kind teacher. Knowing that I am weak in certain topics such as fractions, she uses ‘tricks’ to help me understand the concepts and my understanding of the topic improved. Thank you for your help Mrs Yeo!

“Without You, I Might Have Given Up”

He constantly kept in touch with me and welcomed feedback from us. I am pleased and relieved to have teachers like Mr Fong in the local system. Big thanks to you, Mr Fong.

“Caring for New Primary One Students”

Ying

I would like to thank Mdm Nahidah from Cedar Primary School for her encouragement and care. She taught me in Primary One and Two and was very encouraging. With Mdm Nahidah around, I felt comfortable and not fearful of the new environment. She would look out for us and take care of us in a motherly way.

Though I graduated five years ago, I vividly remember how she taught the class and her concern for students. I will always remember Mdm Nahidah and I wish all teachers a HAPPY TEACHERS DAY!

“Partnering with Parents”

Dr. and Mrs Wong

We would like to compliment Ms Lim Mew Chu of Springdale Primary School. Ms Lim has been my son's Chinese teacher for three years. Ms Lim has shown tremendous dedication and passion as an educator. She is very patient, understanding and encouraging towards my son. As parents who believe strongly in home-school partnership, it has been our pleasure working with Ms Lim. We would like to take this opportunity to thank her for all her hard work and wish her a Happy Teacher's Day!

“A Fun Teacher”

Balasundaram Badri

Mr Jabbar Jaffar from Cedar Primary School was my PE teacher in Primary Three and Primary Six. He taught us the right way to play and if we made mistakes, he would politely explain our mistakes. My friends and I always enjoyed his lessons.

“Thank You to My Teacher”

Mdm Nazira Abdullah has been my Tamil teacher since Primary Three. She helps to correct my mistake and is caring towards us. Cedar Primary School is blessed to have her as one of their teachers.

I am sure that you have set the right foundation for all of us to appreciate and continue excelling in Tamil beyond Primary School!

“Teaching Us to Ask Questions”

Gayatiri Raveentheran

When I was in Cedar Primary School, Mr Zaki taught us Science with much enthusiasm. He would often bring us to the garden to explore plants beyond the textbook. Thank you for motivating and teaching us the importance of asking questions in class. It has helped me till today! Happy Teachers’ Day, Mr Zaki! Please continue inspiring more kids!

“My Daughter Wants To Be Like Her Teacher”

Norizan bte Rahmat

A teacher is anyone in the profession of teaching. However Mr Mohamed Rizal Abdul Aziz of Cedar Primary School is an excellent teacher because of his care and concern towards each student. His dedication and belief in his students’ potential has motivated my daughter to be a teacher when she grows up. My daughter struggles in her academic work, but Mr Rizal is selfless in sacrificing his time to support this group of children. He is always ready to help parents should we encounter any difficulties. My daughter said, "Mr Rizal makes his lessons interesting. He respects us as his students and makes me feel that I’m worth his time. I want to be a teacher that my students will remember when I grow up." Mr Rizal is an outstanding teacher. Thank You!

“Thank you Mr Rizal”

Julie

I would like to thank Mr Rizal for helping my class in preparing for PSLE this year. He helped me to understand about the future and how important education is. I will always remember you advice and do well in my studies. Thank you Mr Rizal!

“Thank You Mdm Choo”

Chintakunta Shreya

You have guided, supported and enlightened me.

HAPPY TEACHERS’ DAY!

“Happy Teachers’ Day to Teachers of SRJC ”

Vincent Tan

Happy Teachers' Day to Mr Phua. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving my son a helping hand by writing for him when he applied to NUS under discretionary admission after his A-level examination results were released. Thank you for empowering both my children in the student council to execute tasks with minimal supervision, grooming their leadership skills.

I would also like to thank Ms Goh, my sons’ chemistry teacher for her patience, help and encouragement. Now, my son is doing well (getting an A-) for his first elective in Physical Mathematics, which is part of his course in NTU Mathematical Science. My son was an Arts student, so I believe Ms Goh coached him well in Chemistry during his JC days.

I wish both of you and ALL teachers in SRJC a pleasant and joyful Teachers' Day and a good year ahead. God bless ALL of you with good health and strength to coach the students at SRJC and bring them to greater heights. Cheers!

Thank you Mr Rizal for spending more time to coach us in our weakest subject. You also make your classes interesting.

“My Guide and Motivator”

Sivaranjini

I would like to express my gratitude to my primary school Tamil teacher, Madam Shavitha. She has been my guide and motivator. If she hadn’t taught me, I would not be who I am today.

Madam Shavitha taught me to be determined and resilient. Although I graduated from Yew Tee Primary School two years ago, none of my other teachers can take her place in my heart. Thank you Madam Shavitha, I will never forget you!

“Mr Ng is always there for us”

Cedric Gan

Mr Ng Soon Aik from Serangoon Secondary School may not be my form teacher, but he was always there for us. He is an approachable teacher who does his best to help everyone excel in their studies and taught us values in life without expecting anything in return. Thank you Mr Ng for your guidance!

“Truly appreciate Mrs Cha’s guidance and effort”

Vivien

Through the guidance of Mrs Cha Sau Mei from Northland Primary School, I learnt to be more mature. My confidence as a speaker grew and I am also more active as a leader. My deepest appreciation to Mrs Cha for everything she had done for me and my class. She expects us to take notes to help in our revision and I truly appreciate why she wanted us to do so. Thank you, Mrs Cha!

“Dedicated teachers in Kheng Cheng School”

Margaret

I am thankful towards my daughter’s previous form teacher, Mrs Jessica Pang from Kheng Cheng School. She taught my daughter Mathematics and Arts and was a very dedicated, caring and thoughtful teacher. I greatly appreciate her encouragement, kindness and patience. Other than writing inspirational notes to my daughter, she updates me regularly on my daughter’s progress in school. She is really awesome!

Also, I would like to express my gratitude to Miss Santi, my daughter’s new form teacher, for her patience and encouragement.

Wishing both of them a Happy Teacher’s Day and hope that they have a nice break!

“An awesome netball coach, PE teacher and mentor”

Vivien

To a determined netball coach, creative PE teacher, disciplined athlete and an awesome mentor:

Through all our netball trainings, I realised that my skills have improved since I first picked up the sport. I would like to attribute my success to Ms Sylvia Lim from Admiralty Secondary School.

During the first half of the year, I did not know much about netball but Ms Lim was patient in teaching me. She always goes the extra mile by creating motivational cards for her netballers and organises friendly matches so that we can improve. She cares for us not just in netball, but is also concerned about our studies and character development. When it is the examination period, she would organise study groups so that we can catch up on our work. I admire her for her commitment in mentoring and coaching us. Ms Lim is also fair and treats everyone equally. As my PE teacher, she would organise fun games to bond the class. Often, she encourages us to write in our journals so that she knows the problems we are facing. She would also give us various options to address our challenges. Thank you Ms Lim for being so committed to the netball team!

“Mrs Diana Kang, my role model and inspiration!”

Punitha

Mrs Diana Kang was my secondary teacher about 15 years ago in Christ Church Secondary School. Her lessons were inspiring and she never failed to express her care and concern for us. Once, I was on long term medical leave and was worried about not being able to catch up. Mrs Kang chose to spend her afternoons coaching me. Unfortunately, she left school just before my ‘O’ levels. Her motivation and care pushed me beyond my limits. She inspired me to be a teacher as well! Today, I try to create the same environment for my students. I have not been able to locate her but I am glad that MOE provided this opportunity for me to say ‘Thank you, ‘Cher!’

“Thank You For Your Guidance”

Yong Min Chin

On behalf of her former students, I would like to express gratitude towards Mrs Li @ Koh Jie Ying of Yuan Ching Secondary School for teaching us Principles of Accounts back in 2013 and 2014. We would not have gone to our favourite courses in Polytechnics, ITEs, JCs & Millennia Institute without your help and guidance. I sincerely hope you will receive the President's Award for Teachers!

“Building Our Foundation”

Yong Min Chin

On the behalf of her former students, I would like to thank Mdm Wong Ling Ling for teaching our class, 3e3 (2013) and 4e3 (2014), a crucial subject, Math, at Yuan Ching Secondary School. During our lowest moment, you saved us and helped the majority with our weak foundation. We passed Math with flying colours during the O-level exams because of your consistent teaching. Without you, we would have failed and would not be able to go to our preferred further education courses.

“Thanks to All Teachers”

Yusang Yonjon

I was born in Singapore and lived there until I finished my primary education at Cedar Primary School. When I passed by PSLE, I honestly didn’t know how to feel. It hadn’t sunk in yet. I remember holding the certificate in my hand, and saying to myself, “This is it.” I looked at my class teacher, Mr Goi, and he said, “Well done!” Many thoughts ran through my head and I could only manage a simple “thank you” in reply. I knew I wouldn’t have been where I was without the help of all my teachers, from nursery to primary school.

Under the guidance and support of my teachers at Cedar Primary School, and the extra classes they would provide, I improved greatly in my Math and Science, along with many of my friends of class ’07. Even till this day, I am thankful to them for helping me become a better student.

I would like to say thank you, not only to my teachers but to all teachers out there. You’ve made us who we are today.

“Thank you to Staff of Jurong Junior College”

Pek Beng Aik

I would like to express my appreciation for Miss Tay Lai Ling and her team of teachers at Jurong Junior College. They have been very patient and supportive of my son, Pek Zheng Xin, during his two years in the school. Thank you very much for caring for Zheng Xin and looking out for him, even when it is discouraging at times.

“Highly Respected by Parent and Son”

Susan Peters

I would like to thank Mr Kelvin Ong from Northlight School who has always shown care and concern for my son. His consideration for and encouragement to my son has helped him tremendously. In fact, he does this for all his students. Mr Ong has always been consistent in letting me know about the progress of my son and goes all out in every effort he can to help. It shows me, a parent, how concerned and caring a teacher he is.

Once again I thank you Mr Kelvin Ong for being a mentor to my son because I know he respects you highly. Keep up your caring efforts and I hope that MOE will take in more teachers or educators that function not only with the head but very much also from the heart, because not every child is built the same.

“The Superhero”

Anonymous

I graduated from Ang Mo Kio Secondary School a few years back and I will always remember the superhero, Mr Aubury Ong. Without his patience and guidance, I wouldn't be who I am today.

He was a discipline master who would always guide his problematic students onto the right track. He would offer to help his students with their studies despite not teaching those written subjects. He would offer his listening ear to students who were feeling down, care about our well being and even help students after school hours. To Mr Aubury Ong, being a discipline master is more than a job.

He always told me, "Nothing is impossible; Impossible is when you give up." This sentence keeps me going even till now. His encouragement helps me believe that I'm not hopeless. Thank you for being such a great DM in AMKSS.

“Unwavering Faith in My Potential”

yong min chin

Dear Mrs Teri Toh@Foo Siew Fong of Yuhua Primary School,

I am currently doing well in my first year of NITEC in Business Services with a GPA of 3.267. I have done well because of your unwavering faith in my academic potential back in 2010. I would not have done it without you as my co-form and maths teacher then. I sincerely hope you will receive the President's Award for Teachers! I also wish you a very Happy Teachers’ Day in advance!

“I’m Glad I Met You ”

Law Chiu Yuan

Mr Jabbar Jafaar is my Physical Education teacher, but if my class or I have any problems, he would do whatever it takes to help us solve them. He has been encouraging me, helping me with school work and is the best listening ear anyone can have. A teacher like him is rare and I'm glad I've met him.

Mr Jabbar of Cedar Primary School is a very reasonable, understanding and funny teacher. I feel that I can tell him anything, even though he is a teacher.

“A Responsible and Proactive CCA Teacher ”

Lam Kah Mun

I would like to thank Miss Michelle Koh, Teacher-in-Charge of Boys' Brigade of West Grove Primary School from the bottom of my heart for being a responsible and proactive CCA teacher. My sons benefitted much from the BB programmes and activities under Ms Koh’s leadership.

Through the enriching programmes, my sons not only learnt and developed life skills, but also picked up important values of integrity, gratitude and compassion. They learnt the importance of how to succeed not only as individuals but more critically, how to succeed as a team. The change in attitude is especially evident for my elder son who joined BB only at the beginning of Primary 5. The transformation seen in him is evident not only in school but more so at home.

Thank you Ms Koh for all your Saturday sacrifices and for making a difference in the lives of my two boys!

“Teachers I Remember ”

Laxmi magar

I graduated from Cedar Primary School in 2007. I would like to thank Mr Jabbar Jaafar who was a great motivator when I took up soccer as my CCA. With his passion and determination, he taught us about confidence and teamwork. One of my best memories of primary school life was winning the champion trophy and doing my school proud. It wasn’t easy but under his coaching and encouragement, our hard work paid off. My team mates and I were playful and put soccer as a first priority. As a teacher, coach and friend, he encouraged us to play hard but to put effort in studies too. I’m glad so to have met a leader like him and thank him for his support.

I would also like to thank Ms Tan Siew Yean, my Principal of Account (POA) teacher for 3 years at Bartley Secondary School. I was one of the weakest students and struggled to do well. With her patience and extra coaching, I improved a lot and I’m thankful that she didn’t give up on me and encouraged me to do better.

“Dedicated teacher who believes in us! ”

Banu

I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Amos Yang of Ping Yi Secondary School for showing care and concern to my class. He is a dedicated teacher who believes in his students, helps us achieve great things and never gives up on us. Thank you Mr Yang for your support and care!

“My Teacher, A Lifesaver”

Yong Min Chin

To Mrs Tan@Goh Mui Gek, thank you for teaching me Chinese in first half of 2013. Without your guidance, I would have scored badly for the Chinese N-Level examinations. In my lowest moment, you consoled me and encouraged me to be stronger. You have been a lifesaver for those with a weak foundation in Chinese. We have improved because of your effective teaching. You’ve earned our salute, Mrs Tan and we hope that you will receive the President's Award for Teachers! On behalf of all your former students, thank you! 陈吴梅玉老师,真的感激您的母语教导。

“Strict by Loving ”

Leya

In 1989, I transferred from Chong De Primary School to Xinmin Primary School. Mrs Loh Lee Yaw was my form teacher then. I remember her for being strict but motherly and loving. I kept in touch with her and she continued to advise me. It was unfortunate that I have lost contact not only with Mrs Loh but also with many other teachers who made a difference in my life. Mrs Loh, wherever you may be, I hope you remember me. Thank you for all that you have done!

“Thank You to Teng Lao Shi ”

Leya

I fondly remember Madam Tng, my naggy but loving F&B teacher whose lessons were very interesting. I kept in touch with her, till after I entered polytechnic. She was a great confidante. We have since lost contact and I just want her to know how grateful I am. Thank you Madam Tng. You cared and believed in me, in all of us.

“Building Confidence through Show & Tell ”

Mrs Wang

I would like to express my gratitude to Ms Chow Wei Yi of Fairfield Methodist Primary School. She taught my son, Jun Kai, in Primary 1 and 2. With her constant encouragement, he performed well in his year-end examinations in Primary 2. Ms Chow is a very diligent teacher. I remembered how she put in effort to practice with her class for their Show & Tell test. This really helped the students gain more confidence in public speaking. She also sends us weekly updates to keep us informed on what was taught in class. I am glad that she is my son’s teacher, thank you Ms Chow!

“A Caring and Dedicated Educator ”

Patsy Loy

I would like to express my appreciation to my son’s form teacher, Mdm Rose Iliyana from North Vista Primary School. She is very dedicated, caring, helpful and will go the extra mile to show encouragement and love to her students. When she learnt that my son did not eat during his break time and has been losing weight, she reminded him to have his meals, even took photos of him having his meals and sent it to me.

She also spent time to inform me on methods to solve Mathematics questions whenever I requested for them even though she was busy with other matters in school. My son was encouraged and his behaviour changed for the better. Mdm Rose would also keep me updated on my son’s behaviour and performance in school. She works closely with parents to help the students and is indeed a great teacher. I wish her all the best in her teaching career!

“Grateful for Support from Concord Primary School”

He Zhimin

We would like to express our gratitude for the efforts that our daughter’s teachers (Ms Heng Chwee Hong, Madam Ee Peck San, Madam Charlena Low, Madam Santhi, Mr Yusman and Mr David Wang) have made through her academic years from P1 to P4 at Concord Primary School. Our daughter, Jessica, enjoys going to school and this gives us much assurance. We appreciate the way teachers in the school have guided and encouraged Jessica to do well in her studies. By making their lessons more innovative, our daughter has developed a keen interest in her studies.

We appreciate the dedication, passion and support that the teachers have shown as it creates a huge impact on the students’ learning process. Thank you Concord Primary School!

My future is brighter because of what she has done for us as our co-form and Maths teacher in 2010. I sincerely hope that she will receive the President’s Award for Teachers.

“Utmost gratitude to Miss Choo”

Joaie

I would like to express my gratitude to Miss Martha Choo, a former teacher in Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Primary School. I was struggling in Mathematics in Primary Five. As PSLE drew near, she offered to give me consultation sessions daily after school. She believed in us and prepared us very well for PSLE.

Eventually, we improved under her guidance and did well for PSLE. I would like to take this opportunity to show my appreciation for her contributions and patience to my class even though she had transferred to another school. Thank you Miss Choo!

“Mrs Anba Made My Son Enjoy Learning Tamil”

Liz Uthman Asri

I would like to thank Madam K Malarvizhi (Mrs Anba) from the bottom of my heart for being a wonderful teacher. My son, Afif, disliked Tamil language since young and was never motivated to do his homework. He does not understand why learning Tamil was important. Whenever he whines, I had to gently remind him to at least pass the subject as it is part of the curriculum.

He had a change of attitude ever since Mrs Anba took over as his subject teacher for Tamil. The results are phenomenal, Afif does his homework dutifully and puts in effort to understand the subject instead of completing his assignment for the sake of doing it. One day, Afif came home after his Tamil exams and said, “Actually, Tamil language is easy, why was I struggling all this time?” I was so surprised when I heard that; and all I could do was to silently thank you for changing his perspective.

Your teaching approach has made learning enjoyable for Afif. I am aware that he may not have high scores for Tamil as his foundation is weak. However, scores do not matter to me. The fact that he is enjoying the language is what matters most. Thank you for making a difference Mrs Anba!

“We Would Have Failed Without Mrs Li”

I would like to thank Mrs Li @ Koh Jie Ying for teaching us Principal of Accounts. If not for her, we would have failed. I sincerely hope that she will be conferred the President’s Award for Teachers.

“Thanks For Being My Friend”

Tan

I would like to express my gratitude to Madam Lok Yin Yin from Queensway Secondary School. She is very supportive, a motherly figure for her students. I am really sad that she has transferred to another school. Madam Lok, thank you for giving me strength, courage and for being my friend.

“Go the Distance”

Tan Minghui

I would like to thank Mr Eddie Koh of Serangoon Secondary School for taking time to coach us in Principle of Accounts (POA). It made the subject more meaningful and understandable. Your selflessness has also touched our lives greatly. We appreciate your willingness to impart knowledge to us and your guidance has also ignited our passion for the subject. Thank you once again for giving us the greatest gift of sparking our interest in POA and creating memorable experiences for us.

“Valuable Life Lessons”

Yong Min Chin

Mrs Toh, thank you for your guidance in 2010 when I was in Primary 6. Without you, I would not have understood and passed Math. We are grateful to have you as our teacher. You have taught us many valuable life lessons. Hope you will receive the President’s Award for Teachers!

“Continues To Inspire His Students”

Evee Ng

My heartfelt thank you goes to Mr Ong Chee Beng from Springfield Secondary School. He is indeed a role model his students. He is caring, thoughtful and never gave up on us. He is very dedicated and passionate, that at over 60 years of age, he has yet to retire and continues to inspire his students.

“Glad We Made The Right Choice!”

Tan

I would like express my gratitude to Madam Jameyahti Bte Ab Malek of Elias Park Primary School for her dedication and encouragement towards my son and his classmate of Class 1K. It is indeed remarkable to have a responsible and committed teacher like Madam Jamey. She always keeps me informed of my son’s behaviour and progress in school. Her prompt feedback has allowed me to address the issues immediately. It is also heartening to know that she puts in a lot of effort to develop her students’ character.

I understand that a teacher’s job is very challenging and tiring, but Madam Jamey goes the extra mile to reach out to parents. We are indeed fortunate to have made the right choice in sending my child to Elias Park Primary for it truly has an excellent team of staff members!

“Discovered my Passion in Chemistry and Biology”

unknown

I graduated from Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School (Secondary) in 2013. I would like to thank Mr Chiam Bai Jie for teaching and helping me to discover my interest in Sciences. I am currently studying Sciences as well in Republic Polytechnic and aspire to be a Science teacher just like Mr Chiam.

“Going the Extra Mile”

Dawn Lu

I would like to commend the Vice-Principal of Concord Primary School, Mr David Wang.

As parents, we tend to worry when our children cross the traffic junction before and after school as the school gate is located along the main road. Children are vulnerable road users. Road safety for children is a social concern and accidents do happen around school areas.

Even as a Vice-Principal, Mr David Wang makes an effort and takes an active role. He will station himself along the main road to guide and care for school children after school hours, ensuring that they follow the traffic rules. I often see him there despite the scorching heat or wet weather. He has gone the extra mile. Thank you, Mr Wang.

“Never Giving Up On Students Like Me”

Radiyah

I graduated from Pasir Ris Crest Secondary School in 2012. I was from the Normal (Technical) Stream. The teacher whom I would like to compliment is Ms Kris Chua. Ms Chua was a very dedicated teacher who never gave up on her students. She would help them believe in themselves and help them to achieve. She would always be there for her students despite all the ups and downs.

Ms Chua taught me upper secondary. I was very rebellious, especially during math and science lessons. I did not listen to any teacher and as I was hospitalised often for my personal medical problems, I just gave up on my studies. I refuse to do any homework and threw them away instead. I would hide from classes, skip CCAs and was rather defiant to teachers. I hated Ms Chua because she always forced me to study. I hurt her and made her cry a few times during lessons, but she has never given up on me.

Once, during a science lesson in the laboratory, Ms Chua separated the class into two groups because we were very noisy. She placed me in the second group, with another teacher. When I argued, she moved me into her group. I continued to run around, play, chatted away and not do my work. She kept asking the class to pay attention. Although the class listened to her, I did not. She almost broke down in front of us, but immediately ran behind, where she hid and cried. That was the last time I ever made her cry. I woke up and felt so extremely terrible, that I broke down too. I felt so bad because Ms Chua always cared for my classmates and I, but we took advantage of her goodness. Though I was impacted, it was not easy for me change. I continued to behave badly, but she did not give up. Ms Chua would chase me down, make sit beside her and she would teach me. Because of her, I became more respectful and obedient in school. She would sit down and talk to me like her own daughter, and made sure I went down for CCA trainings.

In Secondary Four, I spent more than half the year in hospital and I wanted to give up. I was on the verge of telling my Principal that I wasn't prepared to take my N-levels and would like to repeat the year. However, this special teacher was there to help me. Although she was my Science teacher, she knew that I was also very weak in Math and offered to teach me both subjects. She sacrificed her break time, lunch time and after-school hours to personally teach me until the N-level examinations. Even when she was unwell, she continued to teach me after school. Ms Chua also had to rush home after her meetings at 6.30pm to look after her 4-year-old son and prepare dinner. Without wasting a single minute, she would then rush back to school to teach me during the night study sessions. She would often bring her son along, so that she could teach both of us at the same time. It was very stressful, but she did not mind doing it for me and wanted me to do well in my N-levels. She is a wonderful and passionate teacher who believes in her students’ education and I appreciate her a lot. She is a superwoman to me.

Before my math paper, I sent her a text, telling her that I was afraid and did not want to turn up for the paper. She motivated me and came extra early to school the next day to do last minute revision with me. She was there when I got my results. I passed everything, including Math and Science, which I used to get a “U” grade for. I was so happy that I hugged her and thanked her.

When I did not want to continue my education in ITE, she sat me down to choose courses. I got a place at my first choice, the Community Care and Social Service course at ITE Collage East. Ms Chua was so happy that she jumped and hugged me and even told the other teachers in school. However, again in ITE, I was lazy in my studies, lacked motivation and looked down on myself. I hated life, would skip school often and thought of quitting again. Without fail, Ms Chua stepped in to motivate me and show me love, care and guidance like a mother. I successfully graduated last December and I’m now a more confident and positive person. I am currently a teacher aid at the Thye Hua Kwan EIPIC Centre.

I would never have gotten this far without Ms Chua. She made a tremendous and extraordinary change in my life and my perspectives. From her, I have also learnt not to stay out late all the time, and do silly things like I would in the past. We are still keeping touch and occasionally she would do a check on me. Ms Chua has not stopped being a mother to all her students, she continues to help, motivate and shape her students and juggle her time for home and school. Teachers like Ms Kris Chua should be recognised for all the hard work they put in for students like me.

“Learnt to Love and Appreciate Math”

Michael Tan

Mr Michael Teo taught me Math when I was in Mountbatten English School in 1977 to 1982. I never did well in Math. Mr Teo coached and motivated me. I grew to love and appreciate Math. I even got an A for PSLE. Mr Teo, thank you for your patience. I will not be what I am today, without you.

“Thank You For Caring, Ms Chew”

Jan Chan

After the completion of the new school building for Keming Primary School, the school went into single session in 2014. I remembered Ms Chew, the new principal stationed herself for at least a good 2 to 3 weeks along the main roadside every morning to help with traffic control. She reminded parents in the cars to be patient and queue in line to allow their children to alight within the safety of school compound. Her presence touched my heart. Thank you Ms Chew.

“An Inspiring and Dedicated Teacher”

Sabina Beglerovic

Often, we take things for granted and forget how much impact teachers have on our children. As busy parents, it is not surprising that we often miss out the chance to stop and reflect on the influence that dedicated teachers have upon young children. A friendly smile or a word of encouragement may mean a lot to our children while as adults, we often take them for granted. These gestures remain with children for a long time and help to shape their personality and thoughts.

Mr Edward Toh from East Spring Primary School has taught my daughter since Primary One. He inspires my daughter to read and seek more knowledge in not just English, but other subjects as well. She has progressed well both academically and in her CCA, which she takes seriously. He encourages her by telling her how she can manage both her studies and CCA if she focuses on the task at hand and has good time management. We are grateful that despite the hectic schedule of educators in Singapore, there are still dedicated individuals who are committed and strive to recognise everyone’s strengths. Mr Toh is indeed an exemplary of a good teacher.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Toh and the school for making learning conducive for our daughter. We also hope that East Spring Primary would recognise the dedication of Mr Toh.

“Instilling a Love for Reading”

Tracey Ng

Ms Anne Perara of Canossa Convent Primary School is an amazing teacher. My daughters adored her because to Ms Perara, English was never about grades and tests. She taught my daughters to immerse themselves in the language and encouraged them to read voraciously. As a result, my daughters love reading even until today. Ms Perara instils a love for reading in her students. She treats them with equality and strongly believes that no child should be left behind. Thank you Ms Perara for being a remarkable teacher!

“Unwavering Support”

Joyce Shen

I would like to thank Ms Lim Fong Yee of Yishun Junior College for all her efforts. She was supportive of my decision to repeat a year in JC and I am a teacher now all because of how she inspired me to be one. You may not have been my subject teacher in my three years in YJC but you taught me important life lessons. I am thankful for having you in my life!

“The Best Teacher I Ever Had”

Jake Yup

I would like to thank Ms Ng Wei Huah for being the best teacher I have ever had. I hope that Ms Ng will get to read this note of appreciation.

“Unconditional Care and Support”

Chen Mooi Ying

I would like to thank and commend Ms Tan May Fung, the school counsellor from Qifa Primary School, for her unconditional care and support. The help extended was more than anyone could ask for and I am grateful to have met someone like her. I would also like to thank the Principal, Vice-Principal and other staff members who have lend a helping hand in one way or another. Qifa Primary School truly has a wonderful team of staff members.

“Beyond the Call of Duty”

Jenny Ong

I would like to comment Mr Lee Wei Loong of Red Swastika School who taught my daughter in P5 and 6. My daughter lacked interest in her studies and did not perform well. However, she was greatly motivated to do better when Mr Lee took on her class. Under his guidance, she showed great improvement and achieved above average results for PSLE. I personally think that Mr Lee’s conscientious and dedicated self has nurtured his students. He performed beyond his call of duty.

I am very happy and blessed that my daughter has such a fantastic teacher and have no doubt that students will do well under Mr Lee’s care.

My sincerest gratitude and appreciation to Mr Lee!

“Encouraging Teacher”

Lee Jun Xian Joey

Mr Jabbar is my great teacher in Cedar Primary School. He treats everyone like his own child and his constant help has encouraged me to do well in my studies.

“Dedicated and Caring Teacher”

Sankar Sanjeev

Mrs Krishnan was my son’s form teacher at East Coast Primary School when he was in Primary Six. My son has since graduated and is studying at Temasek Secondary School.

Mrs Krishnan was kind and encouraging. The years of experience she has enabled her to handle even the most troublesome students. She is able to help her students learn efficiently. Her dedication and passion to devote extra time to weaker students is very inspiring. She always helps students, even at night when they have to seek clarifications on certain questions. She also gives feedback on her students’ performance.

She is a good example of a dedicated and caring teacher who has her students’ interest at heart. I am sure she has made a positive impact on many young lives.

“The Best Thing A Teacher Can Do”

Madiha Sabah

I would like to thank Mrs Leng Sun Ee, my son’s Primary Two co-form teacher of Qihua Primary School.

My son started school late and managed to join his class in early February last year. She has been very supportive and encouraging in many ways and my son has been very inspired by her kindness. Even though she is not his teacher anymore, he still misses her.

From a mother’s perspective, I firmly believe that she made his transition into a new environment, country and system seamless and smooth. Words cannot express how thankful we are.

She has earned the respect and love of the children because of her determination and effort. I have seen many teachers in my life, but none are close to her calibre she has set.

I will not be able to repay what she has done for us, especially in doing her best to make my son feel welcomed in a new environment. This is the best thing any teacher can do – to assure parents that their child is in safe hands.

“Going The Extra Mile”

Chua Gek Huey

I would like to compliment Madam Teo Tang Hee, my son’s form teacher at Evergreen Secondary School.

I have four children and most of the teachers I have encountered were good and responsible teachers.

However, I am truly impressed by Madam Teo in the way she responded to all my queries and in helping me solve administrative issues. She would not hesitate to respond to my SMSs and would always pro-actively follow-up with all the issues I have. There was no need to ask her to follow-up because she is always prompt in doing that.

Madam Teo would go the extra mile to find out information on my behalf or ensure that proper follow-up has been done. Sometimes, she is so responsive that I felt apologetic for taking up too much of her time.

When she knew that my son would attend MSP outside school every Wednesday, she ensured to let other teachers know that to avoid holding extra classes or activities on that day.

Madam Teo really touched my heart when she gave me immediate feedback on my son’s problems. I have to express my deepest appreciation because as a working mother, I barely have time to monitor my son’s work. Madam Teo has been very helpful, her immediate feedback has allowed me to speak to my son of his issues almost immediately. I do understand that a teacher’s job is never easy and indeed taxing but Madam Teo goes the extra to reach out to parents. Thank you!

“A Supportive and Committed Relief Form Teacher”

Janis Low

I would like to express my gratitude to Ms Soh Siew Lian of Princess Elizabeth Primary School for her dedication and encouragement towards my son and his classmates of Class 2F in 2014.

Ms Soh has never failed to keep me informed about my son’s progress and development in school. It is indeed remarkable to have such a supportive and committed teacher even though she was only a relief teacher.

Her professionalism, concern, perseverance also encouraged me. Thank you very much Ms Soh!

“Tribute to an Unforgettable Teacher”

Chin Suat Mui

As ‘kampung kids’, we knew little beyond home and school, but Mr Tan Beng Huat from Lee Kuo Chuan Primary School in 1956 came along to guide us to learning beyond the textbooks.

His small efforts opened our eyes to the world. There was once when we took the bus to Raffles Junior Library along Stamford Road to be a member of the library. Mr Tan taught us how to borrow books with our library cards and even taught us to select books. I was inspired by Mr Tan and remained as a member of the library for decades.

He sets interesting assignments such as writing down the car models – so that was when my knowledge of car manufacturers started! We may have not sat in a car back then, but we were not totally ignorant!

Our quest for knowledge continued as Mr Tan taught us not to remain content, but instead we should aim for the sky! I will never forget his encouragement: ‘Even if we do not reach the sky, we may land on the tree but that is better than to remain on the ground’.

“A Gem who Brings out the Best in Children”

Suresh Abirami

Ms Renuka is one of the best teachers in the world. I am amazed at how she brings out the best in children. She teaches Tamil in Ahmad Ibrahim Primary School and I am one of the thankful mothers who have such a gem as a teacher for my son. He is studying in his dream school now because of the guidance that Ms Renuka gave. Thank you for motivating your students Ms Renuka!

“Compassionate Hearts”

Mrs Gina Sapru-Lee

My older son graduated from Endeavour Primary School last year and my younger son is in Primary One this year. I must compliment Mrs Pek Kwee Lan, the Principal and her team of teaching and non-teaching staff for their competence. They are efficient in their work and is a great team of educators and administrative staff with hearts filled with love, care and compassion for the students.

My younger son has a severe food allergy and other health issues. I am thankful that the Mrs Pek and her teachers are understanding and accommodating enough to allow me to bring home cooked food for my son every day.
