FIVE students of the Canossian School For The Hearing-Impaired were overjoyed to learn they got excellent results in their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE).

The students, Li Dun Rui, Ong Jing Yun, Cornelia Tan Yii Lin, Lim Jin Wen and Kuo Ning Y i’s aggregate scores ranged from 231 to 261.

They acknowledged that there will always be room for improvement in their grades, but were pleased with their results all the same.

They attributed their success to the teachers at the Hearing Impaired School and St Anthony’s Canossian Primary, where they were integrated, for believing in them. Their friends and parents provided the support, they added.

Ning Yi, who scored 261, said the school gave them “assessment books and more assessment books”. “We couldn’t watch our favourite television programmes like Drunken Angels and Detective Investigation Files,” chimed in the others. Computer games at home had to be given a miss too. And what did their proud parents say? “I was elated when I saw the results,” said Mrs Tan, Cornelia’s mother.

They also expressed appreciation of the efforts of the schools and the teaching staff, especially of Miss Han Chun Lan of the School For The Hearing Impaired, who supervised the students closely.

To the girls, Miss Han has been an inspiration, role model, and great friend, to whom they will always be grateful.

“She always bought food for us when we had extra lessons on Saturdays,” they said.

Said school principal, Sr Geraldine Lim: “I’m extremely thankful and am confident that the girls will be able to enter the schools of their choice.”

The girls have decided to continue their studies at St Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School in Bedok, to which they have become very attached.

Their experience of the last few years has taught them some valuable lessons, they said. Among them were the need to constantly believe in oneself and to draw strength from prayer. “Not being forgetful would be nice too,” said Li Dun Rui.
