I met up with a group of parents who have been supporting the school, some for as long as six years, on Wednesday evening. They are busy parents with full-time jobs yet they took the time to come to talk with this new principal of a school they have grown to love. I really appreciate that gesture.

I had my first conference with parents today, 9 working days after I took over the school. It was a conference we arranged after consultation with the Parents Support Group, on the best day and time for me to meet the most important people in the lives of the young people entrusted to us.
The skies opened up this morning and poured a huge amount of water on the school premises. It felt good to see the three admin staff (thank you, Ms Hsu, Ms Chua and Mr Than for the good work) working together with me, to quickly bringing their umbrellas to shelter our students coming in from the buses and cars, to make sure they are as dry as possible when they begin their lessons for the day.
