“All these would not have been possible without the constant guidance and support from the YCKSS teachers. I'm extremely thankful to each and everyone of them, as well as the school's management committee for enabling me to learn and grow within a closely-knitted community that I consider as my ‘family’.

I would always remember that YCKSS was the spark that ignited my deep passion in learning and leading and that groomed me into who I am today. I'm definitely proud that I was formerly a student of YCKSS, a school that offers its students a great environment to learn and grow.”  Edna Chai

Looking back upon my years in YCKSS, undoubtedly the school’s mission statement would come to mind, “Growing today for where the world is going tomorrow.” The lessons that I have learnt here have more than adequately equipped me for the many obstacles that lay ahead in the subsequent years, be it in the junior college, army, university or life in general as we know it. I do not solely refer to the lessons confined to text and test, but the lessons on life skills and character as well, lessons that could have only been taught by the team of dedicated teachers here at YCKSS.

Coming to this school with a PSLE score of 197, these wonderful educators have taught me to reach beyond the reachable, which according to MOE projections at that time was a less than mediocre course in a less than mediocre Polytechnic. But through their hard work and dedication, I was able to make it to a junior college and onto the National University of Singapore where I stood toe to toe with students from the some of the best secondary schools Singapore has to offer. Where I am today I give full glory and credit to God and to His sure mercies in placing me in YCKSS where teachers do much more than simply care, they walk two miles with you when you only request for one, and for that I am forever grateful for the tremendous part they have played in my life.

It is therefore my privilege to join the ranks of many students with their own success story to tell and that such stories would indeed impact the lives of fellow YCKSS student in the generations to come. They always say a student is a reflection of the school and for that I sincerely hope that my life story till date has been one that has made the school proud. Thank you YCKSS.
