2013 President's Scholars
I am quite pleased with how the PSC selected the President's Scholars for this year. One grow up in PNG, another had 233 for his PSLE. Many parents are surprised, may be shocked but I am very happy. There should not be a beaten path to this hallowed place but the journey there must be marked by the values we admire. I want to see 'jihad'.
I am not so persuaded about giving this scholarships to student leaders, especially the president of student councils. If my memory serves me well many recent President's Scholars were from that path. This is going to become the new beaten path?
