The recipients of PCF Study Awards are selected based on their household income, good academic results and involvement in community services and/or CCA. The awards aim to ease their worries over tuition fees so that they can concentrate on their studies.

  1. Great activities and for a good cause too. :)

  2. I'm impressed by how much time your PM took in this event and how approachable and involved he was in the activities.

  3. That must have been a funny event when I see the pictures. When I first read the word "zoo", I thought at least you know where politicians belong ! lol !

  4. Lina,
    Yes, the recipients get a little financial assistance from this award. Most importantly, they can be assured that there will be help if they need it.

  5. Thanks Jenny. This award has help hundreds of students over the pass few years.

  6. Yogi,
    My PM is indeed approachable and a good man who loves his country and citizens. He is mobbed everywhere that he goes. Every one wants a piece of him :D

    He is very sporting and will participate actively in all events.

  7. Gattina,
    Many of our Singapore politicians in our ruling party are not hypocrites and power-starving individuals who care only to line their pockets.

    Like our PM Lee Hsien Loong, these honourable men and women love our country and desire to make life better for their fellow brothers and sisters.
