Some of the tributes from #SNGSGratitude to Mr Lee Kuan Yew, our founding father following his passing on 23 Mar 2015. (Click on the text to see more.)


When Gratitude Moment was first introduced in 2014 in our school, the first person that we collectively wanted to express our gratitude to was Singapore's first Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew. More than 3000 gratitude notes were written by our students and staff, and another 450 were contributed by parents and alumni. 

Some of the gratitude notes for Mr Lee Kuan Yew by our students in January 2014 are shown below: 


These notes were bundled together with a specially designed Chinese New Year Card and delivered to Mr Lee through the Prime Minister's Office on 29 Jan 2014.

We were happy to receive an acknowledgement signed by Mr Lee Kuan Yew on the same day when he received these gratitude notes.
