Salute ! Ms Chew, Principal of Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School

I’d like to share a nice note I got from a parent about a principal who “walks the talk” of caring for her students. I appreciate the note. We have many caring principals and teachers who take up teaching out of care for our students. Their work comes with challenges and pressures, so it is always a boost when we receive words of support from parents. It is even more encouraging when parents like Mr Tan walk this journey with us. Keep going the distance, Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School!

Minister,

I am the parent of my Celeste Tan (my 4th child, youngest daughter from 1E4). I joined in the fun at Ahmad Ibrahim Sec School (AI) sports carnival at Bedok Reservoir.

Into my first km of the run at the x-country event, I saw principal Ms Chew Ing Lim walking alongside with one of her visually impaired student, holding her. I was attempting to catch up with the Sec 4 and 5 boys (dun want to lag too far behind – kiasu parent), so didn’t stop to compliment Ms Chew for her action.

Ms Chew is really living up to the school’s vision: “Caring School, Learning Community”. Also, explained in the school vision “Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School sees itself as such a place where a culture of care and excellence co-exist harmoniously. It is a school where genuine care springs forth from within.” Instead of running, she chose to walk with the visually impaired student, a step at a time round the reservoir.

Ms Chew’s action is an example of a leader, she walks the talk. I am confident that under her leadership, AI students will eventually achieve excellence in one of the values that the school had intended to inculcate: CARE. This is a very good example of “every school a good school”.

Salute! Ms Chew.

  •  Wow…great true story. We need more of these to realise the vision “every school is a good school” . To more touching stories from all…..

 

  • It’s so easy to care for one another by opening up our hearts and minds to embrace all,Singaporeans or not.We are all one human race.Become a role model for the rest of the world that we are a caring,gracious and kind society.In giving,we receive.
    ALOHA!!!
