Valedictorian Ms Koi Wee Nah @ Shamme Abdullah giving her speech during the ceremony
The opening address for the graduation ceremony was delivered by Ms Marion Wong Wai San, Vice Principal (English programmes), KLCII. She pointed out to the graduates that teaching “is about inspiring change” and that early childhood education “is not just about pedagogical knowledge, but rather the role of educators as practitioners, leaders and researchers”.
She reminded them that learning is a process and not an event or an end in itself.
“Learning is not over when you get your certificate or diploma, rather, it is a continuous journey as we work with the early years, and as we prepare children for the world of today and for the world of tomorrow,” she said.
She stressed the need for the graduates to continue with their professional development to be informed of new knowledge and skills to meet the demands of the changing world.
Since its establishment in 1988, KLCII has trained over 20,000 graduates for the Early Childhood Sector in Singapore. Our programmes are delivered in partnership with the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) and SkillsFuture Singapore. Eligible students can enjoy up to 95% course fee funding.
