Their hard work paid off and we achieved the following outcomes:

Some of our students overcame their personal challenges in addition to their academic struggles to prepare and sit for their examinations.
We are pleased to share Isabel’s special personal story:
Isabel Ang, Sec 4B2 has certainly embodied PL’s HEART values – pursuing excellence in what she sets her mind to do. Posted to the Normal Academic stream in Sec 1, Isabel aspired to be in the Express Stream. With a lot of hard work, determination and support from home and teachers, she was laterally transferred to the Express stream in Sec 3. From there, there was nothing that could stop her. She continued to be diligent and went from strength to strength and was rewarded by being placed on the Dean’s List and was awarded the Edusave scholarship in 2015 and 2016. Despite trying to cope with a more rigorous academic demand, she continued to contribute actively to the school in her role as a Class Monitor and National Education Ambassador. Isabel proved again and again that hard work will always be rewarded. Her teachers will remember her for being helpful, kind and highly motivated towards achieving her goals. When asked the secret to her good results and what kept her motivated, Isabel said, “I wanted to do my best for myself and my parents. I did not want to fail them. I told myself I would have to be adaptable, despite facing any challenges.”
We are also proud of the following two girls who exemplified our School Core Value of ‘Excellence’ and performed exceedingly well in both the academic and non-academic areas:
Loke York Lum, Sec 4A1is an all-rounder who aced her O – Level examinations in 2018. She was not only self-motivated and diligent in her studies, she also showed a keen interest in all aspects of school life. As one of the key members of the Executive Committee for the Dance Ensemble, she motivated her dance mates to stay focused and achieve excellence in their craft. She represented the school in numerous competitions and concerts. Her leadership skills were put to the test when she was chosen to be the Sec 4 Level Representative of the Student Monitors Council, where she displayed her ability to inspire and motivate her peers towards promoting a positive school culture. She was a resilient student with excellent time management skills and she was able to balance the demands in both the academic and CCA areas well. York Lum will always be remembered for being respectful and compassionate towards her juniors and her peers. She had this to say when she was asked to give a piece of advice to her juniors who will be taking the O – Level examinations this year, “Do start studying early so that you can manage your time better, especially towards the end. All the best!”
Charissa Wee, Sec 4A2 is definitely someone to keep an eye out for. She has not only got a deep love for learning, but she also displayed her prowess as a member of the track and field team and in the field of Robotics. With such myriad abilities, Charissa learnt early on to think independently, work with minimal supervision and to always manage her time well. As a member of the Prefectorial Board, she strived hard to maintain student discipline and cared for the well-being of others. She was invaluable as a member of the board that oversaw student punctuality and she tapped on her skills in technology and data management to efficiently fulfil her duties. Charissa not only represented the school at numerous track and field competitions, she also broke her personal best record and achieved podium places at various external events. Her leadership skills made her a natural choice for team Captain and she served as a strong link between her peers and the teachers. Charissa also actively participated in inter-school activities such as the World Robot Games International where she was part of the team that clinched the 2nd and 3rd place in 2016 and 2017 respectively. She was asked what kept her motivated and how she was able to excel in so many different fields, she replied, “I could do it because I did it with God’s help! To achieve our goals, it’s important to manage our time well and prioritise.”
