The results for the PMR are out today. Sometimes we forget that the Form 3 students come from the length and breadth of the country.
This teacher has touched many lives. She has helped produce her fair share of multiple-A students but she also knew that the ordinary students without the As can go on to lead meaningful, rich lives, if they are well-rounded caring individuals who recognise that results are not the be-all and end-all of the school journey.
To all students taking the PMR results today, by all means rejoice in your distinctions, but do not despair over your credits and passes.
Life is a journey, and the PMR is just a little stop along the way for you to pause and reflect, and to move on.
