Singapore Pools Is School’s Longest Supporting Sponsor
A constant friend, Singapore Pools (Private) Limited has supported more than 230 elite student-athletes since the inception of the School.
At a gathering of sponsor, scholars, parents and staff on 2 March 2012, Principal Deborah Tan reminded the Singapore Sports School Elite and Merit Scholars that they were chosen on the criteria of their past achievements and potential to surpass their current capabilities. They journey behind seniors such as Olympians, sprinter Calvin Kang and swimmer Tao Li bowler Jazreel Tan, hurdler Dipna Lim-Prasad, sailor Victoria Chan, swimmers Amanda Lim and Clement Lim, table tennis players Isabelle Li and Pang Xue Jie, triple Jumper Stefan Tseng and many more.
Each year, since the inception of the School in 2004, Singapore Pools has funded up to 20 new scholarships per year, except for the first two years, when the School was just starting out and more scholarships were awarded.
"To our School, Singapore Pools is a very old and loyal friend - one that we appreciate and which I want to remind our Scholars to cherish," said Mrs Tan.
Mrs Tan said all Scholars should embody the School's values of respect, integrity, responsibility, excellence and resilience in all that they do.
