Two PSLE results stories
I never bother to record the top PSLE pupil in this blog but today I wanted to do so with two. May be a few years from now there will be some updates in the media about them.
Very happy for Sherman and his family. Very difficult combination of ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome. I think he got 272 and hopes to gain a place at NUS High.
Jaren lost his father to cancer. Mom operates a stall in the market which he has to help out. He scored 232 and hopes to go to Anglican High. If I am not wrong the cut off for that school is somewhat higher. If his T-score isn't good enough, I hope the principal would consider giving him a place.
