( An Inspiring Speech by Nordelyn Suaverde Silvestre who achieved 8A* grades in the 2020 GCE 'O' Level Examination )
A very good morning to our Principal, Deputy Principal, Head of Secondary, teachers and to all the students present at this moment. I am pleased to have an opportunity to make this speech and try to inspire students, like me, to strive for their future.
As introduced by the principal, my name is Nordelyn Silvestre, one of the students of the Year 11 batch 2020.
Throughout the years, I would always receive a common question from students, whether they're my classmates, juniors and even seniors, about my secrets to achieving the grades that I had attained. Though, to be honest, what I practice is information that has already been revealed to us, students.
I understand that you'll rather live an easy-going life, just playing your games, scrolling through social media and hanging out with your group of friends. You don't have to restrict yourself from having fun, but rather, know your limits. As a student from the science stream and taking arts as an additional subject, one thing was super crucial for me and that is time management.
A piece of advice I hope you all can take from my talk is to start with improving your time management. No matter which year you're from, no matter if you're in the science stream or the arts stream, practice organizing your time. Yes, I understand that it can be stressful and tiresome having extra classes almost every day and having less to no time to relax. Plus, the pile of homework that is assigned to you and maybe some of you still have to attend tuition classes. It is mentally exhausting and there are countless days I said to myself, 'I will rather be physically exhausted than be mentally drained."
But, if you stay focused and have good time management, I have the utmost confidence you will succeed and reach your goals.
Lastly, I would like to share a motto I keep and uphold, which is "Never give up, and continue striving for the best". It is a common quote, but I tell this to myself whenever I fall back or start to lose encouragement. It is cliché to tell someone to never give up; however, whatever aspect you'll see it from, whether in academics, sports, competitions or just in life, when you fall, get up and continue. Prove to yourself that whatever struggle you face or challenges you encounter, you can overcome them and continue winning the battle you're in. Only I could motivate myself to stand up and move forward. Therefore, only you yourself can tell yourself to stop lazing around and to start taking action for your future. Other people, your parents, teachers and friends, are there to encourage you, but only YOU can put in the effort to obtain great results.
The values a student possesses are very important for one to succeed throughout the years. For me, what keeps me motivated and going is my dedication to my education, and it does not solely focus on my studies alone but also on the skills I gained. Also, I made a promise to myself which was to repay all the sacrifices my teachers and parents have put up with to provide a great education for me, and I hope I have successfully fulfilled that promise.
Words can be easily said but if you won't put action to those words, there won't be any improvement or you will not find yourself moving forward at all. Therefore, find your inspiration, find your ways of learning, and find your motivation. We all have our ways to truly find what keeps us going, in the aspect of education, and it's never too late to discover it. Start now. Set a goal and be sure that you will be focused and will be able to reach those goals with a great outcome.
I would like to end this speech by taking this opportunity to say THANK YOU to my teachers who had taught me since I first entered this school in Year 7. Thank you for your patience in dealing with us. Without your dedication, time and effort, I wouldn't achieve excellent results. Thank you for constantly pushing me to do great and for motivating us throughout the years up to our 'O' Level examinations, up until the end of our journey. Thank you to the school for allowing me to grow and to discover greater potentials that I would never think I could achieve. I will never forget the great experiences, laughter, struggles, joy and memories I had in this school and I will miss being in this environment. As they say, and know that I could say this quote, 'Once a St.Georgian, always a St.Georgian'.
To the Year 6 who will be taking their PSR Examination, Year 8 for their SPE, and Year 11 who will be writing for their 'O' Level Examination months from now, I wish you all the best for the examination you have been preparing for and I have confidence you can receive excellent results if you stay focused, continue working hard and put the efforts needed.
With that, all the best to everyone in your assessment this upcoming week and I hope you all will attain great results.
St. George's School celebrated the outstanding achievements of the 2020 PSR and GCE 'O' Level students in a recent award presentation ceremony held on Saturday 20 February 2021.
Present at the ceremony were the Chairman of the School Board of Governors, Anthony Liew Voon Chiang, Principal Janidi Jingan, Deputy Principal NM Mubarak, parents, heads of sections, teachers and the excellent students.
In his speech, Principal Janidi Jingan reminded that academic achievement is an important part of a student's life and on 20 February, St George's School recognized the excellent performance of these students in the 2020 PSR and GCE 'O' Level examinations. He acknowledged that many of them have made this award possible through persistence and hard work, through external and internal motivations and through their love for gaining knowledge and the desire to have a better future.
He informed that the Year 11 students of 2020 have made the school proud as they contributed to last year's outstanding performance in the GCE 'O' level examination results.
He also expressed his sincere gratitude to all parents who were present for the award ceremony, for their unfailing efforts over the years in guiding their children. Good nurturing, love, care and support from a young age help their children to enjoy successful and productive years throughout their school experience. The teachers were also thanked for their tireless efforts in guiding and teaching the students to realize their academic potential.
In conclusion to his speech, principal Janidi Jingan cautiously reminded the Year 11 excellent students that the world is now highly unpredictable and changeable. Academic honours alone will not be enough to prepare them for the challenges ahead. Education is about gaining knowledge and the skills needed to better oneself in the world we live in. Therefore, it is important to promote an all-round education to develop a healthy heart, mind and spirit amongst students who are also future leaders. He advised them to stay focused and be ready to begin the next stage of their learning journey.
The ceremony ended with a photo session with the high achievers.

Although the pandemic had severely affected schools and institutions from hosting events and gatherings last year, St. George's School was very much privileged to have been invited to join the 2-Day BIBD Youth Empowerment Summit 2020 held at the Jerudong International School (JIS) in December 2020.
Ten students were selected to attend the programme physically while 10 others attended it virtually through Zoom due to government regulations as a result of the pandemic. To commemorate the students' participation, the founder of Curious Minds, Mr. Shaun Hoon, and our sponsor for the BIBD YES! Programme, Mrs. Hafiza Mohamad from Progresif, came down to St. George's School to give out certificates of participation to our beloved students.
Besides that, there were also feedbacks from the students about how they were inspired and enlightened during the summit itself. The summit was hosted to build up students' leadership as well as social skills for the future to come. The student themselves also agreed that the summit had given them new perspectives and viewpoints in terms of worldly challenges they need to face as the world is getting more and more modern and developed.
To show our token of appreciation to Progresif for choosing our school out of 32 schools, the principal of our school, Mr Janidi Jingan, presented Mrs. Hafiza Mohamad a certificate of appreciation. Afterwards, we had a group photo session, followed by refreshments. The teachers-in-charge for this eye-opening experience was Teacher Apiza Abd. Latiff and Mr. Eugenio Mendoza.
