“Adversity can produce tenacity. Adversity can also produce audacity. Because we have found new ways of learning,” says Ms Liew Wei Li, Deputy Director-General of Education (Schools).
In this video, she speaks to a parent, and shares how teachers are looking forward to welcoming students back in school, and how many are working behind the scenes to prepare for a safe opening after the circuit breaker period.
“We have surprised even ourselves. The students have surprised themselves. I think we need to give our students a bit more credit for how independent they’ve become, how self-directed they’ve become in learning and we’re very, very happy to see that they’ve grown so much.”
