To appreciate parents (NEW)


In St Hildas, we want to teach our pupils
to honor and appreciate the people around
them, especially to those who care a lot for
them. Hence the Sec 1 form teachers took
time this evening to have all our Sec 1
pupils pen down a Thank You letter for
their parents/ guardians who have played a
key and instrumental role in seeing them
through their PSLE and primary school
years. Sec 1s you can pick up the letters
underneath your chairs and hold it in your
hands tightly. Do remember to present it to
whom you have prepared the letter for,
straight after the ceremony, accompanied
with a hug and thank you.
