“I have had the great privilege of spending 10 years in C.H.I.J … through the examples that my teachers in school who were always very encouraging … It is a reminder to me as an educator of how I do my work”.
Professor Lily Kong, President of Singapore Management University, credits the deeply committed teachers she had, first, at Kellock Convent and, then, at ‘Town Convent’ for teaching her more than what were in the books and showing what it means to live the Catholic life.
She saw in them teachers who gave their all and carried themselves as role models for the students under their care. Hear who were the teachers who inspired her; what were the things that made school so memorable for her.
In the lead-up to the Catholic Education Conference on 15 March 2021, we are bringing you a Catholic Education series, featuring sharings by educators and students in our Catholic schools on the experiences that make school meaningful for them.
