Overall parent feedback

Arya Khng: I love this school,we have the best events ever!!!And I think CCA’s are amazing!!!

Miyoko Leung: Studied at this school on 2005 and graduated on 2010. Looking back, I had the worst primary education experience. Apparently students who are “late bloomers”, or who have cognitive and academic disadvantages receive horrible treatment by teachers. Even if you are not, the teachers were excessively abusive for minor issues (such as forgetting to bring/do homework). Some had “favourites” to praise and “least favourite” students to humiliate in front of the class. Whenever a student is being scolded by a teacher, it seems that I have always observed another teacher to join in and “gang up” on the poor student.

I once forgot to bring a Math mock exam paper,  and it so happens that we have a Science Center excursion on the same day. For that, I got made by my form teacher, Mrs Sheila Cleetus, to complete a new math exam paper FOR THE ENTIRE SCHOOL EXCURSION. This means finishing the math paper while classmates learn and participate in Science programs at the Singapore Science Center. I was only allowed to finally “play” when we were waiting for the school buses to arrive to bring us back to school. I have never felt so humiliated.

Not to mention, my sticker book was confiscated by a teacher and I was never allowed to reclaim it (after I had tried to take it back).

On my final year of primary school, I finally prospered with the help and support of Mrs Doris Lee. Though, I can never forget the horrible treatment experienced by most of the teachers. This left me with poor self-worth in my academic abilities and confidence. It seems that they assume young children are “stupid” and “dumb”, when certain actions can drastically impact on your child’s self-esteem. I am now a university student. And come to think of it, I will never send my child to this pretentious school who will leave bad memories for helpless, developing children.
