Job Shadowing Industry Partners’ Appreciation Night

Our two emcees, Megan Man and Iliyan Allana in Year 5 started the ball rolling by giving all the guests a warm welcome. Next, our Principal, Mr Rob Burrough, gave the Opening Speech, thanking the Industry Partners for their support. This was followed by

a short speech by Mrs Rita Kaur, and a presentation of the Job Shadowing Scheme in 2019 by Ms Tricia Ng. This year, the school partnered with 49 companies to provide 80 placements to our Year 5 and Year 6 students. The numbers have increased steadily over the years with most students going for medical and legal industry placements. In appreciation of our industry partners for helping to mentor our students, Mr Rob Burrough presented plagues and thank-you cards to them.

Megan and Iliyan who were attached to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital and Tan Tock Seng Hospital respectively, did a lively and interesting sharing of their job shadowing experiences. Year 6 students, Sim Si Leng, Leong Jia En Eugenia, Jade Megan Chan and Nicole Lai, together with Year 5 students, Joy Ho, S. Shanthosh, Vansh Romesh Goel, Arnav Parag Salkade and Rhea Chalak also went on stage to express their heartfelt gratitude to their supervisors for their guidance and mentorship.

Many of the industry partners were very happy to reconnect with the students during the event and were impressed with the sharing of experiences. They find the job shadowing programme very meaningful and would like to continue their support.
