Pay backlogged PSLE/GCE N/O level school fees for needy children

Update posted by Gilbert Goh On Dec 19, 2019

Dear friends and supporters,

We have hit the $10,000 mark on our crowdfunding campaign and want to take this opportunity to thank everyone out there for your contribution - well done!

Offline, we also took in close to another $5000 making it a grand total of $15,000 collected so far.

We have dispensed about $6,000 in donations to 17 families ranging from primary school-going kids to polytechnic students to pay off their errant school fees.

The highest amount we have paid so far is a polytechnic student's school fee of $995 - $500 paid by us from the crowdfunding platform and the balance paid by a Good Samaritan. It s for a whole semester of six months and the application for financial assistance from the school is still pending.

We have also visited three families and they have benefitted from our school-fee charity programme. We hope to help them more in the future whenever possible.

Moving forward, we will continue our charity work of helping needy families pay off their school fees and one piece of good news I just heard is that the education minister will review the longstanding practice of linking default school fees to the PSLE certificate.for our 12-year-old.

It is the right move by the ministry and we hope that our young students will be able to receive their exam certificate like everyone else regardless of their unpaid school fees - this should be a matter between the ministry and their parents. We hope that this review will be extended to the GCE N/O level, A level and polytechnic level.

Today is also the collection of GCE N level certificate and we wish that everyone will be able to receive their certificate from the schools despite unpaid school fees. We have funded three GCE N level students on this particular issue as well and wish them all the best with their result.

Once again, we urge anyone who has issue with their school fees to connect with us so that we can provide the necessary assistance after a quick assessment. We promise that it will not be cumbersome.

Do join us in our forum on 21st Dec Saturday from 2 to 5pm at The Mahota studio 808 Kitchener Complex Blk 808 level three. Admission is free and seating on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Thank you once again Singaporeans and let us unite together for a better Singapore.

No one should be left behind...
