Singapore School Principal Writes Parents on Eve of Exams

by School Principal


Dear Parents

National School Exams are here once again. I know you will be anxious for your kids to do well. But please remember. Among the kids who will be sitting exams there is an artist, who will not need to understand Math.

students and parents feel the pressureThere is an entrepreneur, who doesn't care about History or English literature. There is a musician, whose Chemistry scores may not matter at all. There's an athlete, whose physical fitness is more important than Physics.

If your child does get top marks that's great! But if he or she doesn't. Please don't take away his or her dignity and self-confidence. Tell her. Tell him. It's ok. It's just an exam! Nothing more.

He is cut out for much bigger things in life. She is cut out for much bigger stuff in life. Tell your kids no matter what their exam grades you love them and will not judge them.

Please do this. And when you do this. Sit back and watch your kids conquer the world. One bad exam, one low score won't take away their dreams and their talents.

And please, do not think that doctors, engineers, and lawyers, are the only people that matter in the world. With warm Regards
