Edisonz Tan Wei Ming
Junior Class

Edisonz Tan Wei Ming - Grace Orchard School
11-year-old Edisonz is a member of the GOS RECA (Reaching Excellence through Circus Arts) CCA team. He was the only member below 12 years old in the team when they went to Taiwan in 2019 for a 6D5N cultural exchange programme. Edisonz displayed a positive attitude and showed perseverance in learning and practising new, complicated diabolo tricks. He was selected for various performances such as Purple Parade and the Extraordinary Celebration.

Edisonz has also been exemplary in displaying positive behaviour expectations in school and living out the school values. He is the first student who has earned the privilege to be a member of the Principal’s Club by working hard in displaying positive behaviours and accumulating 500 ‘hero chops.’ This is part of the school’s initiative, Good Game, Grace Orchard (G2GO), that seeks to promote positive behaviours in our students. To earn the privilege, Edisonz had refrained from redeeming any reinforcement rewards with his chops for more than 6 months! Edisonz was also awarded the Most Outstanding Student of the Level Award in 2019, an award given to a student who has shown to be outstanding in all areas – studies, attitude, conduct, and character.
