Dear Mr Tan,(Mr. Tan Tiong Lip)
You message inspire me to write something down here.
You have to confess something with pride, these are the quality students whom you have taught and brought us up to where we are today.
Every child has gifts and being taleted and and responsible teachers, you and other Keat Hwa teachers have enhanced and cutivated the seeds and celebrating the fruits today.
Keat Hwa students have been very successful in whatever they are doing today and no doubt they are contributing the success of the society to our country too. The windy force to make all of these happen? You teachers who have spent days and nights coaching us , without swearing and hesistationswhen we were in the of our schooling times. You give so much, and receive little in return, and never complain.
When we were in our 17, 18 year olds, we did a lots of deviance acts such as sleeping in class, challenging teachers with harsh languages, criticize teachers, "ponteng" class and school etc. Teachers might scream, scold and slap. But at the end of the day, we learn, we grow. And they are always there to wish us change, improve and grow even though we might have forgotten them. The care and impact is definitely beyond the classroom and the years we were in Keat Hwa.
While we are working hard and heading to our life destination goal. Take a moment, sit down and give a thought. Who had shaped us to who we are today besides our parents?They do, all teachers who had taught us in school.Be appreciative and do not forget to tell them how much we appreciate and love them before the opportunity dismisses.
I would like to dedicate this small blog article to all Keat Hwa teachers who inspire and dedicate untold hours to teach and grow us.
And thank you for doing such a phenomenal job!
A Keat Hwa student
