Secondary 2 History: Who was the founder of modern Singapore?
Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles
Major-General William Farquhar
There has been some discussion about who the 'real' founder of modern Singapore was. Some say it was Sir Stamford Raffles. Others credit General William Farquhar while some others believe Singapore's success was due to John Crawfurd. Part of the confusion is caused by the different meanings of the word "founder". Founder: (noun) one who establishes a settlement / organisation (noun) one who contributes to the growth of the settlement / organisation Your Task: 1. Research and prepare a write-up on each of the 3 alleged founder of modern Singapore. Your write-up should include their background and what they have done for Singapore. The write-up for each founder should be at least half a page long. 2. Conclude your write-up with a half-page evaluation of who you think should be considered the founder of modern Singapore. Explain your answer.
