Every school is a good school. Or so says MOE. Regardless, every year, anxious parents and prospective primary school students pray for divine intervention to ensure that they get into a good school.
Archbishop William Goh came across one such request at a recent event.
The young girl asked for prayers to enable her to get to her primary school of choice, CHIJ Toa Payoh.
The Archbishop took the opportunity to ask Catholic parents and children to re-look at what it means to be a good Catholic, and a good Catholic school. Beyond good grades, such schools, according to the Archbishop, must impart the right ethos that do not contradict the Catholic values.
All parents, regardless of religion, want the best for their children. In Singapore, it means getting their children in a school that has consistently produced good academic results.
Seeking divine intervention wouldn't do your chances any harm.
