TESTIMONIALS | OUR HONOUR
Having graduated with a Diploma from SP, I was fortunate enough to be able to impart my knowledge as a Training Officer for 12 years at the Singapore Technical Institute, before moving on to incorporate a successful business. As the saying goes, Knowledge is Power. It is thus heartbreaking to hear of SP students having to struggle with a job to support their families whilst studying at the same time. Where my gift can help, not once, but one student every year in perpetuity, definitely brings a great sense of joy that truly cannot be quantified! I trust this gift will also have a multiplier effect, encouraging such bursary recipients to repay back in future, having been instilled an everlasting sense of gratitude, love and care not only towards SP, but also towards society.

Each individual’s contribution is but a drop in the ocean, but collectively I hope that it swells into the “might ocean” of compassion for others and becomes the catalyst that will push and challenge everyone to do better and achieve his full potential.

The last thing that should happen to anyone is to be unable to pursue his/her education because of a lack of funds. There are many who get funds because they are the top of the class, but helping students to be the top of the class by funding their studies so that they spend less time worrying about finance is really something else.

No one has ever become poor by giving. Education is one of the best gifts of all. I hope the bursary recipients of today will go on to lend a helping hand to students who are in need of the future, creating a cycle of receiving and giving back.

The academically gifted will be channeled into the numerous scholarships available to them. But how do we help the less gifted? They too deserve a chance and it is for them that we can make a difference.
