Combined Staff Dedication Service for 2017

The Staff Dedication Service for 2017 was held at Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School (Primary) Shaw Hall on 30 December 2017.

The Service commenced with a welcome from Ms Chua Soh Leng, PLMGS (Pri) Principal, followed by a time of singspiration and worship. It was a fitting start to the year as all primary and secondary school staff from Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School (PLMGS) gathered to give praise and honour to God for what He had done in their work and in their own lives.

The Message, entitled ‘Follow Your Conscience’, was delivered by Rev Wilfred Leow, Pastor-in-charge from Paya Lebar Chinese Methodist Church. This was followed by a special item presented by the PL teachers and a special prayer to dedicate Mrs Adel Tay, the new Vice Principal of PLMGS (Sec).

The oath-taking ceremony led by the 2 Principals affirmed the commitment from the various stakeholders to serve PLMGS wholeheartedly for the holistic education of PL-Lites. The Service concluded with a prayer for the teachers by Rev Christopher Chin, Chaplain, PLMGS.

2016 GCE N-LEVEL NORMAL (TECHNICAL) EXAMINATION RESULTS

(National Press release can be found at https://www.moe.gov.sg/news/press-releases/release-of-the-2016-singapore-cambridge-gce-na--and-nt-level-examination-results)

We celebrate with our girls who received the 2016 N- level examinations results on 19 December 2016.

Here is an inspiring story on Lee Qianyu Sharolyn and how she overcame the odds to ace the GCE N-Level Examinations.

Lee QuanYu Sharolyn.jpgLee Qianyu Sharolyn was hardly ever in class. Her attendance was always poor ever since she was a secondary one student. When she was present in class, she appeared to be disinterested and unmotivated. Sharolyn often missed classes due to her personal family matters.

However, her form teachers felt that while she appeared to be disinterested, there was a leader in her waiting to be discovered. Hence, when she became a secondary four student, her teachers nominated her to become a class monitor. With the support from her peers, Sharolyn then took on the role of the class monitor.

It was as if her role sparked a new sense of confidence in her. She took to the role like duck to water. As the year went on, her teachers saw a huge change in her. Sharolyn’s attendance improved drastically. She was hardly absent from class. Even when she was very ill, she refused to miss a day of class. She oversaw the discipline and order of the class and could be counted on to handle challenging class matters. Sharolyn handled fights between classmates and provided assistance to her peers with special needs. As a result, her classmates respected her and listened to her.

Not only did the teachers see an improvement in her attendance, her attitude took a turn for the better. She often stayed back to prepare for her N-Level Examinations in the school library. She would consult her teachers whenever she needed help in her work instead of being nonchalant about her work. As a result, her results soared and she even came out one of the top pupils in her preliminary examinations.

She also began taking an interest in her CCA. She knew that her CCA results would not be satisfactory due to her poor attendance from secondary 1 to 3. Hence, she jumped at the chance to take up the school’s gym programme in order to make up for her lack of participation and was able to secure a good grade for her CCA. 

Sharolyn’s pillar of strength was her mother stood beside her throughout, in her good times and bad times. Whenever she was stressed, her mother would encourage her to aim for excellence.

Sharolyn is indeed a source of inspiration for her peers and juniors. Her teachers are also proud of her achievements and are glad that she excels in her role as a leader and displays the values of tenacity and perseverance.
