2. Cloris Tan.pngCloris Tan enrolled into Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School (Sec) as a Normal (Technical) stream student in 2013. In her primary school days, Cloris shared that she was a playful student as her parents did not think that academic pursuit was important.
 
In PL Secondary, she encountered the less fortunate children when she went to Malaysia, Klang as part of the school’s Values-in-Action programme. She also took part in school camps, putting her leadership to test. In addition, the encouragements from her teachers helped her realise that it was not too late to change her attitude. Having a strong desire to break out of the stereotypical perception that NT students could not achieve much in life, she began to envision a future of herself. She wanted to set an example for the rest of the NT cohort to follow.
 
She became a self-motivated student who succeeded in achieving high personal goals. She obtained commendable results and was presented the Edusave Scholarship Award from 2013 to 2015, given to the top 10% of each level and stream.  In 2015, Cloris was promoted to the Normal (Academic) stream due to her determination and diligence. She was also awarded the Edusave Merit Bursary in 2016, given to the top 25% of each level and stream.
 
In class, she was cooperative and developed positive working relationship with her peers. Her good nature earned her the trust of her friends. As Class Monitor in 2015, she could be relied on to complete the tasks assigned.
 
In her Co-Curricular Activity (CCA), Cloris was a member of the School Badminton Team. While managing her academic pursuits, she still participated actively in various badminton tournaments. She won 2nd and 3rd place in National School East Zone Badminton Championships 2016 and 2014 respectively. Cloris was also part of the team that clinched the top position in the Fairfield Methodist Cup Badminton Tournament in 2015. In recognition of her sportsmanship and leadership, she was awarded the Edusave Award for Achievement, Good Leadership and Service Award in 2016 and 2014.  She also received the School Colours Award (Sports) in 2017 and School Colours Award (Team-Merit) in 2017, 2016 and 2014.
 
Cloris’ achievement in her studies and CCA was commendable despite her personal challenges in her studies and family’s financial difficulties. In mid-2017, Cloris was diagnosed with severe headache that affected her concentration in class. She was even hospitalised and had to go through several medical examinations. Despite her medical condition, she did not give up. She pushed herself to come to school and had proven to be a tenacious student who was committed to overcome all obstacles. She was a recipient of the Methodist School Foundation Good Steward Award 2017.
 
When asked what she wanted to do in the future, she said, “I want to lead people by taking up business management studies.”


3. Sarah Jane Lee.pngSarah Jane Lee did not give up on herself despite setbacks in her life. Her father, the family’s sole breadwinner, passed away when she was a Secondary 2 student, putting an enormous strain on the family’s finances. As she transited from lower secondary into upper secondary, she took on leadership role in her CCA, St John Brigade, and had to balance this with her academic studies. There is no doubt she struggled, but she became a stronger person having gone through the trials and tribulations in life.
 
In her studies, Sarah was a motivated and diligent student who has achieved commendable results.  Her diligence earned her several academic awards such as Edusave Merit Bursary in 2016, given to the top 25% of each level and stream, and Edusave Scholarship in 2015 and 2014, given to the top 10% of each level and stream.
 
In class, she was an enthusiastic student who maintained good rapport with her peers. As Class Monitor in 2015 and 2016, she was dependable and carried out her duties responsibly. She availed herself when help was needed.
 
In her Co-Curricular Activity (CCA), Sarah was an excellent cadet and leader in St John Brigade in her four years. Despite her father’s passing when she was in Secondary Two, Sarah continued to stay committed, taking on many extra hours of training in order to represent PLMGS(S) at the Zonal First Aid Competition in 2015 and 2016, as well as the National First Aid Competition in 2016. As the outstanding leader of her cohort, Sarah served as Student Coordinator in 2016/2017, the top EXCO position in the Corps, and rose to the rank of Senior Staff Sergeant through her good performances and contributions. In recognition of her good leadership, She was awarded the Edusave Award for Achievement, Good Leadership and Service Award in 2016 and 2014.
 
Her achievement in her studies and CCA is despite her father’s demise and her family’s financial difficulties. She has proven to be an effective and driven student who was able to overcome all odds.
