I was a student here
I graduated from here about 6 years ago. I still remember the school relocated to Jalan Jurong Kechil for a while, occupying the space that is now the German European school. Those were good days, when I could just walk across the street to home.
Having spent six years of time in Pei Hwa, a good chunk of my life, I have made many memories both sour and sweet. I still remember the times of chapel, sports day and music lessons. I had a wonderful music teacher who was also my form teacher, that was my inspiration for a good number of years.
I look at myself now and am pretty satisfied with who I see, due largely in part, I believe, to the education I received here.
the best of my worst years
I'm not sure what PHPPS is like now, but back then, I loved running up the big steps in the courtyard that were too high for our little legs, the yummy doughnuts in the canteen, visiting 'The Ark'. Exploring the back of the school; swarming the nearby Shell station, Bukit Timah Plaza across the road and being general public nuisances.
Sometimes, now, I catch sight of little PHPPS kids around. Hey, that was my old house! Hey, that's what I used to do! It makes me feel all warm (and kinda old) inside. Though I haven't been back there in a pretty long while, Pei Hwa will always be a special place for me.
