By Lee Siang, CEO—Dyslexia Association of Singapore
The Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS) Annual Student Graduation Ceremony is a celebration. It highlights the successes and achievements of our students—both in their academic performance and their strengths and talents in many other areas.
Two hundred and thirty-eight primary and secondary students graduated from our main literacy program in 2015. They have all attained a competency in literacy that will facilitate their success in school. Three students who have demonstrated exceptionally high levels of commitment and determination in their pursuit of success, in sport, arts, or simply all around excellence, were presented with the DAS Special Achievement Award.
The DAS Student Graduation and Achievement Awards Ceremony was held on November 21, 2015. We also celebrated the success and achievements of our alumni, past students who have continued to excel. We are very pleased to present the DAS Young Achiever’s Award to Jeremiah Tan. We look forward to having outstanding young people like Jeremiah serve as an inspiration and role model to our current students. I am sure parents will also take heart from Jeremiah’s fine example.
This year we presented the DAS Best Educational Therapist of the Year Award for the first time to acknowledge the incredible work Educational Therapists do in our classrooms. The government-aided main literacy program saw its enrollment cross 3,000 primary and secondary school students in October 2015—another first. The main literacy program complements the government’s School Dyslexia Remediation Program, which has been expanded to all primary schools in 2016. These developments reflect the significant number of school-age children whom we still have to reach to identify and help. The need for more dedicated and well-trained Educational Therapists continues to be paramount.
DAS congratulates all our graduates and award winners and wish them every success in their future endeavors!
