A frank opinion of my primary school experience
Gongshang Primary School.
This oriental - sounding name was quite out-of-the-world for most of my relatives or friends who did not live near enough to realise that this school did really exist. Contrary to its name, I did not find the school culture particularly distant or peculiar. Perhaps a little given my basketball jersey did have some Chinese characters on it. And the proportion of the student population who were Indians and Malays was just a tad bit small. And the insensitive comments I tolerated on the school bus ride every morning about I was an ‘in du ren’.
Somehow the science teacher that realised the potential in me to perform - read outperform - trumped all other fragments of my memory of my primary school. Yes, that’s what this school is about. Inspiring.
