Heart touching letter by principal in Singapore sent this to parents
'One exam or a low mark won't take away their dreams and talent,' says a school principal in a letter addressed to parents.
In a letter that challenges the notion that the path to success is through academic exceptionalism, he encourages parents to focus on building their children's confidence rather than criticising them for their failures.
Preliminary exams are underway in various schools, with scholars under pressure to meet the thresholds and hopefully pursue their undergraduate studies at higher education institutions
The exams of your children are to start soon. I know you are all really anxious for your child to do well.
But, please do remember, amongst the students, who will be sitting for the exams, there is an artist, who doesn’t need to understand Maths.
There is an entrepreneur, who doesn’t care about History or English literature.
There’s a musician, whose Chemistry marks won’t matter.
There’s a sportsperson, whose physical fitness is more important than Physics..like Schooling
If your child does get top marks, that’s great! But, if he or she doesn’t, please don’t take away their self-confidence and dignity from them.
Tell them it’s OK, it’s just an exam! They are cut out for much bigger things in life.
Tell them, no matter what they score, you love them and will not judge them.
Please do this, and when you do, watch your children conquer the world. One exam or a low mark won’t take away their dreams and talent.
And please, do not think that doctors and engineers are the only happy people in the world.
With Warm Regards,
