It is twenty of them; but not all came at the same time and the year was 2015/2016.
They came believing in us. We began as a learning center with no past records to prove anything. What could we offer then? They just trusted and believed that we will keep our promise to do our best for them.
On hind side, they are the lucky lot. Who would ever think that 2020 has been a most unpredictable year? The pandemic would have caused them to miss out SPM in 2020. They escaped because they followed the IGCSE programme. So for this the parents had made an undeniably good alternative. The batch enjoyed another privilege when we could use their school records to grant them grades for the June sitting. All of them received grades approved by Cambridge board that earned the envy of many. We have truly done our best for them. The parents got what they came for in their academic achievements.
Joshua came in with brother Matthew and it took their father quite a bit to decide. Having to make sure both sons make to the next level of learning was not an easy task. But I am truly grateful to announce both have surely done well enough for the next platform of learning.
Samuel came in too with brother Jonathan who is now in Australia pursuing an engineering course. Quiet and unassuming, he will be able to find his own level after completing the examination.
Aishwarya and Serena both seem like sisters trustingly took the step of not going through the pathway of SPM but instead an IGCSE route albeit scoring perfect As in UPSR. They have done well enough to make us proud.
Ilysha and Yin Xuan came in hand in hand and went through the 5 years hand in hand too. They are best of pals and learnt, played and acted almost in everything. They too will be partners in future learning we are sure.
Both Vernise and Jian Ye joined year 7 at age 12 after leaving year 5 of their vernacular alma mater. We had a tall order form Jian Ye’s father and his belief in us was complimenting and throughout his learning here we saw him grow in knowledge of subject matter and language eloquence. He is a dark horse. Vernise is no less. Of few words but possessing strong language, she will break some records.
Adrian and Bryan are twin brothers. They seem to have same tastes, preferences and learning styles. Both love handling the audio visual system of the school and take charge of Monday assembly dutifully. Both may end up in the same college as well and be best friends forever.
Michelle and Charlotte are cousins and fight hard to do well. They know what they want and will go for it. With brains and beauty, they will have a bright future. Go find your dreams.
Ashley and Zachary are newer but no less determined. They target for their end results and are set to achieve them. Full of philosophy, both of them are reflective in their daily encounters with others around them.
Lee Jia Hao came in to catch that hope. We are very glad to announce that he grew in leaps and bounds both academically and in virtues. He is an example of a product worth emulating and has done us proud. He is one to behold.
Shi En is everyone’s friend. Thoughtful and kind she puts many above herself. She is blessed because of her simplicity and generosity. May she be blessed with success in whatever she does.
Kah Leong and Cheng How are hardly separable. They studied and considered almost all matters together and not forgetting to have meals together too. They have worked hard and may the best be with them.
Xuan Qi with tricks up his sleeves, is lucky to grow with us. Learning was uphill but all’s well that ends well. He picked up. May his mother be blessed by this change.
Last but never the least, Han Xin. Colossal in size, he came in on a Saturday morning with his mum to register. Mum put on her hope in him. He had quite a journey through his ups and downs but we sincerely pray his pathway will be made easier in the days to come. Take care, son.
