Ten teachers were presented with a Caring Teacher award recently. The biennial award recognises outstanding teachers for their contributions to the holistic development of their students.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony held at Yu Neng Primary School, Minister for Education (Schools) and Second Minister for Transport Ng Chee Meng, acknowledged the important role teachers play in the community.
Mr Ng said that a teacher’s “care and concern is a ballast when students face challenges, whether it is in school exams, difficulty coping with grades… different aspects of school life. In all these, our teachers make a difference, with that listening ear, that caring touch”.
Teachers make an important impact. This award only serves to highlight this. Many of us will remember an important lesson, be it academic or not, that our teachers have taught us in the past. As the future evolves, our teachers will become all the more important in imparting the right attitudes and skills to the future generation.
