Caring Teacher Awards

The Caring Teacher Awards is a biennial event that pays tribute to teachers who go beyond the call of duty for the holistic development of their students and ensure their charges grow up to be confident and independent learners for our nation. Started in 1996, the Caring Teacher Awards is organised by the National Institute of Education, Singapore with support from ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd and the Ministry of Education. This year, 5 of our teachers – Ms Usha Rani, Mdm Kimberly Koh, Ms Ivy Teo, Mr Muhammad Salim and Ms Magdalene Ho – have been conferred the Award. Congratulations!

LEAP Award – Mr Patrick Goh

The LEAP Award was launched by our late President SR Nathan in 2011 and awarded by the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan every year to recognise exceptional teachers who have made a positive impact in nurturing students from the heart. These teachers believe that their students have the potential to excel beyond their capabilities. The Award also aims to motivate all teachers in Singapore to strive to be nurturing and effective educators. Congratulations to Mr Goh, our Year Head for Middle Primary, for having been conferred the LEAP Award 2020!
