At 2.20pm on 3 March 2015, Bryan
Ng from Primary 6B, was spotted boarding the MRT train at Pasir Ris
Station. The coaches were fairly packed, leaving standing rooms only.
He was observed by a member of
the public, Mr Elendrus
Osman, to have gone out of his way to offer his seat to the elderly. Despite
having to do a balancing act (he was unable to hold on to the hand-support
above him due to his height) between managing his heavy school bag on his
back and holding a food container in his hands; he was on the look-out for
any elderly who boarded the train and offered his seat. He made offers to about
five or six elderly commuters.
Although, the majority of them declined due to short travel, one took
the offer and was appreciative.
reiterated that Bryan’s acts of kindness and his compassion towards the elderly
are good habits for others to emulate and he thanked the school for instilling
good values upon the students.
Osman for his email. We hope that with the support of parents and the
community, we will be able to nurture all our pupils to practice our 4R School
Values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilient and Rally Together.
