I am really thankful for my parents that they weren’t so hard on me with my PSLE results. With that, I sat down and weighed my school options carefully. And they trusted my school of choice and allowed me to go ahead with it.
Without their trust and support, I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the best years of my life in a convent.
As your child’s journey begins to unfold, we hope you walk and support your child through their decision.

I read a book on Essentialism by Greg McKeown, it shared a story of this essentialist parent who was clearly proud of their son at Harvard.
Their practice was to have him try out a lot of different things, but as soon as it became clear that an activity was not going to be his ‘big thing’, they took him out of it.
This is a really different approach to what we are used to, we are used to drillings and practices till we ‘perfect’ it.
Truth is, we are all good at something, we just got to keep finding it. With that, I’ll leave you with a popular quote.
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein
