After much preparations, interviews, sleepless nights, worried parents. He finally got it! I am a proud mum of a 17 year old son who is at present studying Environmental & Water Technology at Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
Friends have mentioned that he is a brillant, intelligent boy. Thank you so much for the compliments.
I have to say that he was never a top student in school. Not too bad in his studies, managing top 25 in his 6 years of primary school, model pupil in P6 (did fairly well and get himself into St Andrew Sec), top 5 in Sec 1, not so good in Sec 2, top 25 in Sec 3 and didn't try his best for O level (as he got into the course in NP through DPA).
To all the teachers that have taught him, I would like to take this opportunity to thank them. Without the support and encouragment, he wouldn't have made it through.
