Jurong West Secondary School

Having survived PSLE. we still need to network with other parents with kids in the same Secondary school. While giving our teenagers their own space, we can update each other about the school.

Not many comments on this school but its Vice Principal's comment is trending today. Quote of the Week in blue:

"Speakers and teachers at the inaugural AsiaEducationExpo (AEX) 2013 discussed moving away from an exam culture to focus also on soft skills - such as developing empathy.

The first panel discussion, of a three-day programme organised by Sphere Exhibits, was a spirited one attended by about 200 participants. In particular, the thread of making every school a good one struck a chord with teachers, with several hoping that parents would recognise the efforts of all schools to bring out the best in students.

Jurong West Secondary vice-principal Pushparani Nadarajah remarked, to applause: "How many of our leaders and top officers who say that every school is a good school put their children in ordinary schools near their home? (Only) until they actually do so are parents going to buy (it)."

The session was moderated by Singapore Press Holdings' (SPH) English and Malay Newspapers Division managing editor Han Fook Kwang. It followed a keynote lecture by Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy's adjunct professor S. Gopinathan, who addressed changes in the education landscape. Also on the panel was National Institute of Education principal officer Quek Jin Jong."
