Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong receives a gift of a scroll as he officially opened the Good Shepherd Place on May 2.

The scroll, presented to him by Marymount Kindergarten children and Sr Joan Lopez, provincial superior of the Good Shepherd nuns, contains the Chinese character for “a spirit of good will”.

The Good Shepherd Place, located in Toa Payoh, is a five-storey building which includes facilities such as a kindergarten, a retreat centre, a chapel, a children’s home and a convent.

The Good Shepherd nuns moved into this new compound last year as the land their former convent sat on, at Marymount, was to be used to build the North-South Expressway.
