From the Principal's desk

Dear Parents

 Unbelievable, but true – we are at that time of the term again where our learners have to write their exams.

 To some of our learners, it is not an ordeal at all – to others though, it is a time where they struggle and face many challenges.

 I have to agree with a letter that a principal of a school in Singapore sent to the learners’ parents before the exams.

 He wrote:

“But, please do remember, amongst the students who will be sitting for the exams there is an artist, who doesn’t need to understand Math… There is an entrepreneur, who doesn’t care about History or English literature… There is a musician, whose Chemistry marks won’t matter… There’s an athlete… whose physical fitness is more important than Physics… If your child does get top marks, that’s great! But if he or she doesn’t… please don’t take away their self-confidence and dignity from them. Tell them it’s OK, it’s just an exam! They are cut out for much bigger things in life. Tell them, no matter what they score… you love them and will not judge them.

Please do this, and when you do…watch your children conquer the world. One exam or a low mark won’t take away their dreams and talent. And please, do not think that doctors and engineers are the only happy people in the world.”

 Our learners need to hear that as well. They are all special in their own ways.

 Please support your children throughout the exam time.
