Outstanding Youth in Education Award (2008)

Subject Head / Art and Aesthetics
(A recipient of the prestigious award.)
Luke Melvin Cher Teck Yiang, one of the three recipents of the prestigious award, is Subject Head/Art and Aesthetics in Mayflower Primary School. Having a deep concern for foundation students, Melvin goes the extra mile to build and develop their self esteem.To engage students in their learning, Melvin conceptualised Project Carlos Santana where every student was given the opportunity to learn to play the guitar.He believes that every student is gifted with musical talent, and refused to give up on helping them realize that potential. When one of his students found it very difficult to pick up this skill and nearly gave up on music, Melvin presented thestudent an alternative – learning a percussion instrument. By allowing his students to work at their own pace and giving them ample opportunities toexplore their hidden potential, the student who almost gave up on music soon found himself performing to parents and members of the public. Melvin’s project did not merely develop his students’ musical talents, but also raised their self esteem.His endless efforts have seen students being more engaged, open and curious in their learning. This is testimony to Melvin’s belief that the discipline, values and social dynamics instilled through music and the aesthetics cascade into and beyond the academic area.Melvin’s passion in bringing music and the aesthetics to the students was evidentin his school musical he organised last year. This musical was even given special mention in Prime Minister's National Day 2007 Rally speech.For his innovative and passionate drive in developing students through musicand aesthetics education, Luke Melvin Cher is conferred the Outstanding Youth in Education Award 2008.

President Award for Teacher (2007) 

Jessie.jpg Mdm Yip Jee Cheng,
Jessie Senior Teacher
(A recipient of the prestigious award.)

Mdm Yip Jee Cheng is the Level Head for Primary 6 in Mayflower Primary School. Her colleagues and pupils admire and respect her for her firm belief in the holistic education of her pupils which is evident in the manner she nurtures the development of each pupil. Conducting in-class dialogue sessions was one of the strategies she used to develop her Primary 6 pupils. Her pupils expressed that their level of confidence and academic performance improved because of her advice during these engaging sessions. She has also provided opportunities for her pupils to be creative and entrepreneurial. Publications like the “6J Gazette” and a fund-raising activity “Funtasia”, are platforms created by her for pupils to hone their leadership and innovation skills. 

Mdm Yip is highly regarded by both her current pupils as well as those whom she taught in the past. They identify her as a teacher who teaches the lessons of life with strong emphasis on values. Pupils attribute their ability to rise up to challenges to the values they have learnt from Mdm Yip. Pupils’ parents and her colleagues are equally impressed by her commitment and love for children and seek her advice and inputs for the development of their children. 

Mdm Yip believes in continual learning. Other than attending professional development courses and sharing her learning with others, she led a team of teachers to do an Action Research Project on “The use of problem posing strategy to enhance the application of mathematical concepts in problemsolving”. This initiative significantly impacted pupils’ understanding and application of mathematical concepts and resulted in marked improvement in their performance in Mathematics.

Mdm Yip’s belief that teaching should not be confined to the classroom and textbooks has been the catalyst in moulding her into an extraordinary teacher, who truly makes every day a new day for her pupils.
